How Do You Do Clay?

Clay is a naturally occurring substance that can be found in all corners of the globe. Clay comes in many distinct varieties, most often associated with the region from which it occurs. Red and green clay are the most common, but clay can be found in white, yellow, black, brown, pink and many shades of each. This versatile substance can be used in construction, pottery making, arts and crafts, healthcare, and beauty. Let’s look closely at the health and beauty applications of clay.

Calm Your Upset Tummy

Bentonite clay is a popular clay for calming upset tummies, digestive issues, and morning sickness. It can also be part of a short-term colon cleanse, as it attaches itself to impurities, toxins, and heavy metals. With adequate hydration, clay removes these impurities from your body. Each clay dietary aid has its own usage instructions, so follow accordingly or in conjunction with your doctor’s orders.

 

Removes Impurities from Your Skin

You have likely seen or used clay beauty masks or full body treatments designed to eliminate the toxins from your skin, leaving you with exfoliated, soft, and smooth skin. However, clay is also packed full of essential beauty-boosting nutrients that improve elasticity and deliver a healthy and youthful glow. While clay masks are great, they can be messy, which is why we are proud to offer you an easy alternative with a variety of clay-based bath and beauty solutions.

 

Soothe and Treat Irritated Skin

Clay may remove impurities, but it is also soothing and gentle. Turn to bentonite clay as a natural toothpaste or mouth rinse or as an alternative to baby powder. Clay is also gentle enough to apply to skin with eczema, dermatitis, psoriasis, poison ivy, or any skin-based allergic reaction. It will help soothe your skin and remove the toxins causing the outbreak. It will also contribute to regenerating your skin, fade scarring and even out skin tone.

 

These are just a small sampling of the powerful health and beauty benefits of naturally-occurring clay.
