We Love Clay Masks, But How Often Should We Use Them? A Dermatologist Weighs In
Masking is one of our favorite skin-care past times (and favorite tiny acts of TLC). We’ve proclaimed our love for sheet masks, masks that work as cleansers and now up — clay masks. Unlike other masks, clay masks are a little more advanced in the skin-care universe because learning how to use one depends so much on your skin type. We tapped Skincare.com consulting dermatologist Michelle Farber, MD, of Schweiger Dermatology Group to break down what to keep in mind before your next clay-masking sesh.
WHAT DO CLAY MASKS DO?
According to Dr. Farber, clay masks are great for getting rid of impurities and excess dirt on the skin’s surface. “By absorbing excess oil, these masks can make pores look temporarily smaller,” she says.
