Bentonite Clay is Considered the Most Healing of all Clays
The Humble Clay
In a world where injectables and resurfacing lasers are now de rigueur, it’s great to take a step back and revisit the humble clay. “Clays are made of old, decomposed, organic matter, which makes them rich in minerals, and therefore excellent for skin and hair,” says J Tara Herron, director, The Imperial Spa, Salon and Health & Racquet Club, Delhi.
Because they are so rich and packed with healing substances that simply applying them to your face, hair and body gives you beautifying benefits.
Bentonite clay is considered the most healing clay of all because of its fine texture and ability to expand when hydrated with water. It is pale grey or cream in colour with very soft powdery feel and is excellent for drawing out impurities from beneath the skin’s surface.
Soothing HealerIt is also a soothing healer of problematic skin conditions such as pimples, skin allergies and sensitivity. Since it has a ‘digestible’ composition, it has been used in conjunction with psyllium seeds and oil to cleanse the colon, but this should only be done under the supervision of an expert, when the clay is superbly prepared and safely hygienic for internal use.
