Masked Up is a clay mask formulated with natural ingredients to nourish and protect your skin. It gently exfoliates and detoxifies to reduce the appearance of pores and revitalize dull skin. Its creamy texture leaves skin soft and hydrated with long-lasting results.

Are clay masks good for skin?

Clay masks have been used for hundreds of years to improve the skin’s appearance. Today, judging by the number of beauty influencers posting Michael Myers-esque, LED-lit, clay-mask selfies, earthen facial masks are still wildly popular — and here to stay. Now, in addition to tubs and tubes of ready-to-apply masks, clay masks come in the form of dry clay powder, which turns into a paste when you add liquid.

Clay masks are favored by many beauty aficionados, since clay is rich in minerals like iron, calcium, silica, and magnesium. Clay masks:

  • pull out impurities, including heavy metals and charged toxins, from inside the pores
  • absorb sebum and prevent pore clogging
  • may boost skin elasticity
  • ease the effects of sunburn
  • may help heal allergic skin reactions
  • may promote collagen production to reduce wrinkles and firm the skin

How do you use a powder clay mask?

It’s all in the mix: What liquids do you mix with clay powder masks?

Here’s what makes clay powder masks so cool: You can mix the dry clay with all sorts of skin-loving liquids, including:

  • Water
  • Coconut water or coconut milk
  • Aloe vera
  • Rose or lavender water
  • A few drops of coconut, argan, olive, or another hydrating oil for extra moisturization

The directions on my dry clay masks say to mix one to two teaspoons of the clay powder with my choice of liquid — I used plain ol’ warm water.

Each of the times I used this product, I mixed it up in the palm of my hand — which I recommend doing over the bathroom sink, since inevitably, some of the very fine, loose powder will escape. It's shockingly red, but the natural clay cleans up easily.
