Summer is here and look who came with her! Yes, it is all the oily skin problems like pimples, acne, rashes and so on. Summer acts differently on different skin type – for dry skin, it takes away all the hydration and leaves skin drier and rougher while for oily skin, it is all about more oil and pimple. Terrible season for the skin!  🙁 But this time, it won’t be that terrible for oily skin as we at Wiseshe came up with this idea to introduce all oily skin beauties with facial clay.

7 Facial Clay You Must Check Out!

Bentonite Clay

This is one of the most popular clays available in the market for oily skin beauties. This is mostly present in your acne packs as it can suck up oil and excess sebum in a moment. It also has electric charges that take out toxins from the skin and help in skin tightening, reducing open pores, skin firming as well as acne removal. It also helps in various skin diseases like psoriasis and eczema. This is a multi-functional clay that can soak up excess oil and make face free from germs as well.

French Green Clay

This French Green Clay is deep green in colour due to the presence of Iron Oxide and decomposed plant from the sea. This clay has pore tightening and exfoliating properties other than absorption of excess oil and sebum. It helps to make sure that your skin is squeaky clean and has no trace of oil in it to make pimples pop. It also helps in blood circulation in the skin as it pulls blood towards the skin. So it might happen that you feel a tingling sensation when you apply this which is really normal.

Fuller’s Earth Clay


Fuller’s Earth is perhaps the most basic clay which many of us use on a weekly basis. Also known as Multani Mitti, this affordable clay has skin lightening properties as well. This is a versatile clay which can be used by both dry and oily skin. It can also be used for hair care. Fuller’s earth absorbs excess oil, firms skin, gives a soft glow and makes skin all healthy and nice.

Kaolin Clay is one of the most underrated clay in the skin care industry. It is known for its skin lightening and anti-acne benefits. Many of the famous products like Lacto Calamine has Kaolin Clay in it which makes it a got to and handy product for many. I feel Kaolin Clay needs a bit more recognition.

Rhassoul Clay


Rhassoul Clay is great, like Fuller’s Earth for skin and hair. This is produced in Morocco and absorbs oil and dirt from both hair and skin. Being positively charged, this clay is great for removing toxins from the body as most of the toxins are negatively charged in your body. This is also a heavy-duty exfoliator and is used in small amounts in soap. It is gentle enough to be used daily and also can remove blackheads.

French Red Clay

French Red Clay, also known as red Clay comes from the rocks that have ample amount of Iron Oxide in it. It is perfect for absorbing oil and dirt and can be used in various face washes and face packs. This clay has absorbing properties like all others that help to absorb oil and prevent pimples. This also helps in removing rashes and giving a firming effect to the skin. Rich in Iron, this is also useful in minimising pores.

This is a very mild clay which contains Iron but no Aluminium. This clay can also be used on dry and sensitive skin to make skin soft, smooth and radiant. This clay has properties to tone the skin, remove dead cells, improve blood circulation. This is a very deep detoxifier that helps to remove stubborn blackheads and pimple marks. A must have in every oily skin girl’s skin care!

Facial clays should gain prominence in skin care arena and you should use clay when you feel like. Nature has a solution to everything, even your stubborn acne!
