Clays are the pure power from the mother earth and amazing for skincare. They are widely available and affordable option for skincare masks. You can use them in your facial or body care or haircare products, but they are also used for cleansing practices internally for their detoxifying properties. There are many types of clays available, some stronger than others, but my favourite is the green clay and that is what I use in my clinic.

The skin is the largest organ in the body, but we still often ignore its care. It has many functions, it helps to protect us, it regulates the body's temperature and helps with removal of toxins. It also has nerve endings, hair follicles and is sensitive to touch. Skin is very important to us and it protects us in many ways, keeping tissues and blood inside of the body and harmful substances outside and protects us from UV light.
