The Venustast Clarifying Clay Mask has been incorporated into the Obagi system to further enhance its benefits. Designed to be used in the evening after your cleanser, the Alpha Hydroxy Acids in the mask enhance the “pulling” properties of the bentonite clay to better prepare your skin for toner. And that is the key. Bentonite Clay has amazing properties that allow it to attract and draw out toxins and other skin impurities many times its own weight. This is a difference you will feel.
How to use
If your skin is oily you can use the mask daily. If drier use 2-4 times per week. Apply the mask evenly over your face ( and neck) and let it be for 5-15 minutes.(less for drier skin, more for oily, and for very oily skin the mask can be left on for up to an hour) Rinse your face with warm water. Pat dry, apply toner and continue with the rest of your Obagi system. Your skin will feel tighter, the toner will feel a bit more “tingly” . You will notice the rest of the Obagi products will apply more smoothly enhancing the benefits of the Obagi system even more. And it feels good to boot! Is adding another step to your regime sound like fun? Maybe not, but give it a good try, if you are like many others that have they find it very worthwhile and wouldn’t live without it.
The skin product industry is constantly introducing new skin care ingredients, but there are some that have stayed popular because that have stood the test of time. One that is at the top of the list is a clay mask, and it’s with good reason. They’re easy to use, feel great and make your skin glow, all with one quick application.
Although clay masks have been used for decades, there have been improvements to the basic clay ingredient with the addition of skin rejuvenating Alpha Hydroxy Acids and other exfoliating acids. The addition of these ingredients boosts the effectiveness of our bentonite clay mask as it target specific skin issues such as acne, redness and rough skin.
There are a few tips for getting the most out of your bentonite clay mask application, so incorporate these points the next time you use one. An insider tip is to not allow the mask to fully dry, especially if you have dry or flaking skin. Clay masks work by providing moisture and minerals when first applied wet, then as it begins to dry, blood flow to the skin is stimulated as it contracts. The key is to avoid letting your mask get to the fully dry (and cracked) phase, and washing it off just as it starts to feel less tacky and the color lightens up.
Another tip, if you have dry skin is to avoid overuse of a clay mask. Most women find that using a mask three times a week is sufficient, although women with acne and oily skin may be able to use it daily to help treat their skin issues.
There are several different types of clay used in facial masks, and each offer specific effects depending on their mineral level and additional ingredients. In general, all clays masks do a great job of stimulating skin, removing surface debris and will leave your face looking clean and radiant.
