Clay Mask Skin Benefit #1: It Can Help Draw Out the Buildup of Impurities

Throughout the day, dirt, oil, pollution, and other impurities can build up on the surface of your skin, leaving your skin feeling rough, plus also making your pores appear larger. A clay mask can help draw out the buildup of these impurities for skin that feels clean. Try the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Face Mask not only draws out this buildup but also tightens the appearance of pores and exfoliates dead skin cells from skin’s surface to smooth imperfections. Immediately, skin texture appears refined, the appearance of pores is minimized, and skin looks smoother. Another clay mask to add to your skin care routine? The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask, which draws up the buildup of impurities and clarifies tone to help skin feel smoother and look fresher.

Clay Mask Benefit #2: It Can Help Brighten the Look of Your Skin

If your complexion is looking kind of dull these days, it’s time to look on the bright side: there’s a clay mask you can use for that! Consider using a charcoal mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Face Mask, as this type of clay mask can help reduce the appearance of dull skin and increase luminosity as well as even out the look of your skin tone.

Clay Mask Skin Benefit #3: It Can Help Mattify the Appearance of Skin

Have oily skin? Listen up! A clay mask can help mattify the appearance of your complexion for a shine-free look. And isn’t that the ultimate skin care goal for oily skin? You can use the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Purify & Mattify Face Mask to help absorb impurities and reduce the appearance of excess shine.

Clay Mask Skin Benefit #4: It Can Help Gently Cleansed Stressed Areas

Over time, harsh cleansing can be drying and sensitizing, leaving skin feeling uncomfortable. As a result, skin needs cleaning that is effective yet gentle. Enter: a clay mask! The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask helps visibly reduce the look of imperfections, clear the look of congested pores, and gently cleanse stressed areas. Immediately, skin feels refreshed and comfortable. Try this clay mask if you have dry skin. 

How to Use Our Clay Masks

Whichever of our clay masks you choose to use, applying them is the same. Put an even layer onto clean, dry skin, leave it on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water. Use three times a week for best results. After you’ve removed your clay mask, make sure to follow up with a hydrating moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Dry Skin, L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal to Oily Skin or the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin. It’s best to apply moisturizer while skin is still damp, as this can help lock in hydration—so don’t towel off once you’ve rinsed off your clay mask.
