You know those pink clay masks you keep seeing on the ‘gram? Well, it turns out they actually do wonders for your skin. At least, the one by Alya Skin does.
We’ve had the Australian Pink Clay Mask on the website for a while now, and you guys have been loving it. The little miracle worker is filled with all the good stuff like kaolin clay, bentonite, witch hazel and lactic acid among other ingredients that act to detoxify your skin. It extracts all those pollutants that can cause irritation and the result is clearer skin with less redness. So it’s pretty exciting that this homegrown brand has introduced another two skincare products to the lineup.
The new products have been designed to go hand-in-hand with the pink clay mask and Alya Skin is promising that three steps to clear skin. So we thought we’d break each product down for you, explain some of the benefits and how they can fit into your skincare routine.
Step 1 - Alya Skin Pomegranate Facial Exfoliator
So we all know that an exfoliator can make a skincare routine so much better, right? We're not talking about the ones with the rough beads that can irritate your skin and also do damage to the environment. Alya Skin’s Pomegranate Exfoliator Facial Scrub uses pomegranate seed powder to buff away the dead skin instead. The ingredient lineup also features rich fatty oils like coconut, sweet almond and macadamia seed oil so your skin will be super hydrated after. And like the rest of the range, it’s vegan and cruelty-free so there aren’t any nasty ingredients that can cause flare ups either meaning it's safe for sensitive skin. It works to remove impurities and reduce skin inflammation, even helping with eczema and acne issues.
How to use:
After you’ve finished with your daily cleanser - we love the Pixi Double Cleanse - simply apply a thin layer of the exfoliator to your t-zone (forehead, nose) and other problem areas such as the chin. Then rub gently in circular motions, and rinse with warm water when you’re done.
Step 2 - Alya Skin Pink Clay Mask
We know some of you already love the Alya Skin Australian Pink Clay Mask but it can never hurt to talk about it again, especially when it achieves real results. We mentioned a few of the benefits earlier but this clay mask seriously does make a difference to your skin. Contrary to popular belief, clay masks aren’t just great for those with oily skin - it can be used across all skin types. Yes, even sensitive skin because it only features natural ingredients that won’t leave you with breakouts. It even HELPS with breakouts because it extracts pollutants and nasties from your skin plus it tightens pores.
How to use:
Similar to the exfoliator, apply a layer of the clay mask to your t-zone and problem areas. Leave it for 10 minutes - perfect to do while you’re watching your guilty pleasure reality tv show - then remove it gently with warm water.
Step 3 - Alya Skin Australian Native Berries Moisturiser
After you’ve exfoliated away the dead skin and drawn all the pollutants out, your skin should already be feeling pretty soft. The cherry on top of this skincare regime is the Australian Native Berries Moisturiser. It has a bioactive complex of three Australian super berries - pepperberry, riberry and muntries - that will help repair the skin from within. Vitamin C also makes an appearance to help with the anti-aging side of things as well as visibly brighten your skin. And finally, it is also packed full of sweet almond oil, macadamia seed oil and shea butter to combat dry skin and leave it feeling hydrated and silky smooth. What’s not to love?
How to use:
We’re sure you know how to apply moisturiser but just in case - apply a thin layer to your skin and rub it in. Use it daily for the best results and ALWAYS use it after the pink clay mask to let your skin drink up the goodness.
