Benefits of Clay mixed with Rosehip Oil
This DIY clay cleanser recipe is gentle enough to use daily. It’s powerful, yet it won’t strip or over dry the skin. In fact, this cleanser is quite moisturizing and nourishing, especially when mixed with the rosehip oil. Rosehip oil is so good for the skin! It’s well tolerated by all skin types, even oily skin because it helps regulate natural sebum production.
Rosehip oil penetrates deeply into the lower layers of the skin where it regenerates cells and increases collagen production. It is rich in vitamin C and E, Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids and retinoic acid, which studies have shown to brighten and tighten skin! It also helps restore skin’s elasticity, fades age spots and dark circles, reduces broken capillaries, and balances oil glands.
In other words, I think rosehip oil is the bomb and I can’t say enough great stuff about it for skin health. I’ve tried a few different rosehip oils over the years, but I keep going back to THIS one. It seems to be the freshest, best quality one I’ve tried so far.
Which type of clay is best for my skin?
For this Homemade Facial Clay Cleanser Recipe, I recommend choosing between 2 different clays depending on your skin type: Bentonite Clay (sometimes called Healing Clay) or Kaolin Clay.
Bentonite Clay / Healing Clay is the best choice for most skin types. It’s the most powerful, deep cleansing clay and is especially great for acne-prone, oily, combination or normal skin. I have normal skin and bentonite clay is the type of clay that I use. THIS is the specific one I use.
However, for sensitive, dry or mature skin types you’ll definitely want to use Kaolin clay instead of Bentonite Clay. Kaolin clay is the gentlest clay.
