How to Unclog Pores on Oily, Acne Prone Skin with Body Shop’s Ionic Clay Mask

How to Unclog Pores on Oily, Acne Prone Skin with Body Shop’s Ionic Clay Mask

Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask by Body Shop


Product Review!

This is one of the best facial masks I’ve ever used. My oily skin is a major problem and very few masks that I’ve tried even come close to unclogging my pores.  My skin felt truly clean and detoxified after using this. Here is a description of what the mask can do for your skin, and how to use it…


Benefits of Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask by Body Shop:

  • Leaves skin feeling fresh and looking glowy

  • Tightens and firms the skin for even texture

  • Brings toxins to the surface and dissolves dead, dry skin

  • Provides deep cleansing – purges sebum plugs out of pores

Who should use the Ionic Clay Mask?

  • Those with combination or oily skin, and acne prone, congested skin

  • People who frequently wear makeup and need to clear their pores

  • NOT recommended for those with dry or sensitive skin

  • Best to use once weekly

How to Apply Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask by Body Shop:


1. Steam pores to open

Take a hot shower or drape a towel over your head while holding it over a bowl of steaming hot water for 10 minutes


  1. 2.  Cleanse face

Wash face thoroughly with an exfoliating scrub to remove makeup and dead skin


  2. 3.  Dry face vigorously with a fluffy towel


4.  Immediately Apply Seaweed Ionic Clay Mask

Using finger tips or a medium flat brush, apply the mask to entire face so that skin is no longer visible. Allow for ½ to 1 inch space around lips and eyes.


  1. 5.  Allow to dry for 10-15 minutes

Some tingling sensations will be present. This just means the mask is drawing out toxins.  If you feel a very harsh burn, your skin may be too sensitive for the mask. In this case, wash it off your face with cool water.


  1. 6.  Rinse face after mask is completely dry

Pat warm water onto your face to soften the mask. Using circular, upward motions, rinse away the mask. Press upwards near areas with large pores to force out any remaining plugs


  1. 7.  Use your regular cleanser on an exfoliating body glove

Apply a dollop of cleanser to the body glove and scrub face to remove remaining mask and debris that emerged from pores


  1. 8.  Apply toner of your choice to purify your open, clean pores

Toners without alcohol are best; look for Tea Tree or PH Balanced Toners

Overview of Results:

I’m in LOVE with this mask!  Its ionic content promises to draw out impurities, and it does. You can actually see the mask absorbing oil from your pores as it dries. After the mask has been removed, gently press upwards on the skin wherever your pores are largest, and you will see even more debris come to the surface. I used this method on my cheeks, nose, chin and forehead – so much gunk came out, it was rather disturbing to know all of this was hiding in my pores! My skin felt so refreshed and clean after using this mask. I would recommend this to anyone who has to deal with oily, acne prone skin.
