    @Clayspray for Your Winter Skincare Routine

    I’d love believe that with over half of February behind us, Old Man Winter is making his retreat… but these weekly (and sometimes twice weekly) snowstorms and cold weather tell a different story. So until I can start thinking about packing away the the heavy coat and switching to something light and springy, my winter skincare routine is in full effect.

    Here are my top 5 winter skincare quick tips:

    1. Go easy on the heat.
      Hot water dries out your skin, so suds up with lukewarm water instead.
    2. Time the moisturizer.
      Apply moisturizer immediately after washing your face while it’s still damp; it will absorb moisture better.
    3. Don’t ditch the sunscreen.
      There are less hours of sunlight each day, but winter sun combined with snow glare can still damage skin.
    4. Switch to a heavier moisturizer.
      The same light moisturizer that gets you through the summer might not cut it in the winter. Switch to a heavier cream to combat winter dryness.
    5. Let your skin glow.
      Shed that layer of dull, dead skin by using an exfoliating mask to smooth and add a natural glow.

    Keeping those tips in  mind, I recently tried out Clayspray, a clay mask in a spray. The Clayspray line consists of five different masks, each addressing a specific skin care concern: Pore Refining, Skin Brightening, Glow, Toning and Mattifying.


    I considered the different options and decided on Glow because wheres my skin is oily in the summer, it tends to be dry during the winter.


    It comes out like a gel shaving cream. I like that I didn’t have to fumble with a tube–it’s very convenient to apply.

    After I sat with the mask on for a few minutes while it dried, I was able to easily rinse it off — and the results? My skin felt softer, refreshed and had a noticeable glow. Most clay masks have a drying effect because they work to draw out impurities and environmental toxins from deep within your pores. But Clayspray also deposits moisture and nutrients to your skin, which makes it different from regular clay masks. It’s awesome because that means I don’t have to follow up my clay mask with a moisturizing mask like I normally do in the winter.

    The clay is sourced from the Irene Mine in Spain’s Iberian Peninsula where it has been protected from pollution and contamination for thousands of years.

    At Home Spa Treatments with @ClaySpray

    I have an early memory when I was 3 or 4 of my mom with her glass jar of Borghese mud mask and coming around the corner saying boo!  I was both scared and intrigued at how this grotesque clay can actually beautify your skin!  I remember wanting to do it with my mom and thinking it would be so cool to try it. Of course she told me this is something I can do when I grow up, along with lipstick, mascara but I could wear a bit of perfume. My mom has always taken great care of her skin and looks gorgeous and much younger than her actual age!

    In a blink of an eye, I am 29 and clay masks have become a part of my monthly beauty routine to detox my face of impurities.  This at home spa mask is really fun because I can do it at my own convenience, right before a shower and playing on my iPad. It is easy, fast and I am always looking to try new versions of beauty masks.


    The ClaySpray is unique in it’s packing, ingredients and its fresh approach to this ancient beauty routine. I recently tried the Glow Red Clay with Cacao Masque from ClaySpray and it was fantastic!  The clay comes in a pump top can and it is quick, mess free and easy to use.  You only need a little for your whole face and the texture is like Nutella.  First spray your face with the water spray then apply the clay quickly. Se you can see on the tip of my nose, it started to dry already.  Once the whole mask changes colors. you know that it is ready to be washed off!

    The nourishing power of antioxidant rich cacao aids cell regeneration and neutralises the damaging effect of free radicals.  I used this for glowing, healthy, and radiant looking skin. The Glow Red Clay Masque instantly adds a boost of radiance to dull skin. The mineral rich formula includes iron to activate circulation, silica to boost collagen, alongside nourishing cacao, which is rich in anti-oxidants to rejuvenate. The restoring clay exfoliates and restores the skin’s surface revealing a glowing and healthy looking complexion.

    The process was so easy!

    1.   Spray or moisten skin with natural mineral water.

    2.   Dispense product into your hand and massage into the area to be treated. Avoid contact with eyes.

    3.   Leave on until dry.

    4.   Wash skin with water until clay is removed
