Is Glacial Clay Good for Dry Skin?

Dry and dehydrated skin can become a more common issue in the winter months, with lower humidity and more extreme temperature variations stressing your skin’s moisture balance. If you suffer from dry skin and have tried other clay masks, you might be surprised to learn that NENA Glacial Clay can help to restore your moisture balance rather than just drying your skin out further.

Glacial Clay is different from other clays such as kaolin or bentonite due to its rich mineral content and the unique osmotic strength. Once you apply the NENA Glacial Clay Mask, the clay starts to pull any impurities, dirt and excess sebum out of your skin. Additionally, the clay uses its osmotic functionality to increase blood circulation and “pull” moisture from deep inner tissue to the surface of your skin. The gentle exfoliating action of the mask reveals even and glowing skin after you have rinsed the clay off. You are left with a more evenly balanced skin tone, even in these dreary winter months!

An important step during the masking treatment is to apply a moisturizer after rinsing the mask off to help seal in the hydration. The NENA Glacial Moisturizer is particularly suitable because it contains Glacial Mineral Water, which is extracted from Glacial Clay and holds the same mineral content.
