Using clay in skincare is very popular due to its extraordinary benefits to keep your skin clean and clear. A clay mask can draw out impurities, brighten dull, tired skin and help prevent breakouts. It eliminates dead cells from an upper layer of the skin and clears the pores and also prevents acne. The most common types of clay are kaolin and bentonite, that help to mattify the skin by absorbing excess sebum and draw impurities out of clogged pores.

Take some clay in a bowl and add some rose water to it. Do not use steel utensils for this as the clay can react with metal.
Mix the ingredients together into a fine paste. Apply it all over your face and leave it on for 15 mins.
Massage it well and then rinse it off. Do this twice a week for better results.
Patch test before use.
If you have combination skin, then use the mask only on oily or congested areas, clay masks also work well to help reduce redness and can be also used as a spot treatment.
