Clay masks are my favourite skin purifying treatments. My current favourite is the super-luxe and super-expensive Glam Glow Supermud skin clearing treatment.

It’s amazingly effective but also a bit pricey for regular use all over… my top tip for getting the most uses out of the jar is to use as an emergency overnight spot treatment.


When a spot appears, dab a small amount of any clay-based mud mask just over the spot and leave to dry as you sleep. In the morning, you’ll find that the spot has improved significantly. The mask draws out the impurities overnight and promotes faster spot healing. It’s much more effective and more painless than the ‘old toothpaste trick’.
