What are the skin benefits of clay?

Clay is a detoxifying, rejuvenating and strengthening agent. It extracts toxins and impurities from the skin while delivering much needed minerals to maintain a smooth and fresh-looking skin.

There are different types of clay and each varies in composition depending on the origin they're from. Clays come in a wide variety of hues. They're naturally colored and don't contain any dyes or pigments.
