A deep cleanse is sometimes the most important thing you need to get your post-summer skin on track. A deep cleansing facial at your favorite salon is the perfect way to unclog those pores and decongest skin, sloughing off dead skin cells to reveal radiant, fresh, and more youthful looking skin.
But sometimes, a monthly facial is not enough to keep skin looking its best. A bit of groundwork at home in-between appointments is what’s called for. Deep cleansing requires a good clay mask to really clean deep down into the pores. Question is, which one do you go for?
Here’s a couple that we think are worth the money – depending on your budget, take your pick.
Deep Cleansing Mask by Omorovicza
The Deep Cleansing Mask by Omorovicza, the cult Hungarian skincare brand that is currently enjoying a bit of a moment, and a range that is a Beauty Editor’s favorite. All the products in the brand harness the unique powers of the mineral-rich healing Hungarian waters which set this brand apart and the Deep Cleansing Mask is no exception.
This classic mud treatment nourishes as it cleans, thanks to the purifying blend of white clay and Hungarian Moor mud sourced from the bed of Lake Heviz in Hungary. Using Omorovicza’s patented Mineral Cosmetology, a three level mineral delivery system that enables the deeper layers of the skin to absorb the potent blend of minerals, the mask not only deep-cleanses. It leaves skin super-smooth, as the calcium and magnesium re-energize and brighten the skin as they draw out impurities from deep within. Cost: £57 for 50ml
Original Mudd Mask from Boots
Most of us in Britain grew up with the Original Mudd Mask. In fact, it was probably our first foray in face masks once we’d graduated past the homemade honey-and-oatmeal masks. You’ll be pleased to know Mudd Masks are still going strong, with a whole range of masks for different skin types. The Original Formula is still the best seller and for good reason.
The 100% pure clay mask contains special minerals which absorb excess oil, deeply embedded dirt and makeup in one fell swoop. Mudd Masks are non-comedogenic, so regular use will not clog the pores or cause extra blemishes. Used once or twice a week, the mask will help prevent and control spots and blackheads and tone and tighten the skin. Cost: £5 for 100ml (ten treatments)
