Seems like nothing the earth gives us does our skin any harm. Bentonite clay is one such ingredient that comes from the earth. Also known as Volcanic Ash, this is the remnant of volcanoes that is often used to clear the skin up. It comes with a host of benefits on the skin that is exposed to dust, pollution, free radicals and many more substances every day. 

Unclogs pores 
When applied on the skin, bentonite clay helps in getting rid of the gunk, grime and dust from the skin's open pores. It even helps in unclogging the pores that reduces breakouts and therefore prevents blemishes and blackheads. 

Exfoliates skin 
Exfoliation is a part of the skin cleaning process. It gets rid of the gunk and dead skin cells on the skin and leaves it looking and feeling fresh. Bentonite clay is a great exfoliant and manages to scrape off all the dying cells, leaving the skin glowing and fresh. 

Reduces blemishes and scars 
Bentonite clay gets rid of blemishes and scarring on the skin from everything caused by acne and other natural elements. Removal of scars and blemishes also gives the skin an even tone. 

Prevents blackheads
Using bentonite clay on the skin opens up pores and removes dead skin cells from the top layer of the skin, that often leads to blackheads when ignored for long periods. With the skin getting cleared up, the existing blackheads are removed as well as the possibility of fresh ones.
