Top 5 beauty benefits of Fuller’s earth.
Fuller’s earth is a clay material packed with minerals such as silica, iron, calcium and magnesium. It is a material that helps enhance your beauty and it works for all skin types, and has no side effects.
The ingredients of fuller’s earth can help your skin in following ways:
Iron increases oxygen intake and therefore improves blood circulation. Improved blood circulation results in faster repair of damaged cells and regeneration of new cells.
Silica slows down aging by stimulating the production of elastin and collagen.
Calcium hastens skin turnover (replacing dead skin cells with new cells). It also acts as a moisturizer and protects against UV radiation.
Magnesium’s anti allergic properties reduce inflammation and breakouts, and detoxify the skin.
