Skin Healing Salt, Mud Mask
The minerals in mud are highly effective in absorbing oil and for toning the skin. Mud is often used to detoxify and tone skin and is used as an anti-inflammatory agent for skin disorders. Mud commonly contains nutrients, trace elements, and various minerals that the body can absorb quickly. Some other benefits of mud include: reducing signs of aging, improving circulation, shrinking large pores, rinsing away blackheads, and helping clear acne. Although natural mud masques are not ideal for exfoliation, they are very beneficial to those who suffer from acne or oily skin. The mud particles absorb oils from deep within the pores as they dry trapping oil in the mud. However, the mud will draw out some moisture as it dries so it is recommended that a follow-up moisturizer is applied.
