I have several photos in this post with my comments about whether or not the mask is applied appropriately. Please follow this advice to get the most out of your clay mask application.
Many important places on this model’s face are not covered with clay. Above her lips and under her nose, around her mouth in general, under her lips, directly under her eyes, and what looks like the sides of her face, although it’s hard to tell in this photo. All of these spots can be problem areas for many people, so by not putting the mask there, you’re missing out on the deep cleansing and anti-inflammatory benefits (especially directly under the eyes) of using a clay mask.
’d put the mask directly under the eyes and closer to the mouth—so you can’t see the facial skin—along with a bit further under her chin. In this photo, there really isn’t clay near her hairline on the sides of her face, so I’d definitely apply the mask closer to her hairline.
’t applied under her eyes. Even if you use cucumber slices (or something else), still apply the clay directly under the eyes to get the full anti-inflammatory benefits. Unless you have breakout or problem skin issues, you really don’t need to apply clay on the neck tissue—it’s totally optional. Usually in my treatment room I will apply an appropriate moisturizer in a thick layer on a client’s neck, unless she has breakout there. Breakout always gets clay mask application.
There are many articles about the use of clay masks. Here are just a few you can read through to understand the outstanding benefits of using this essential tool for healthy skin:
