When applied to the skin, mud packs are a combination of therapeutic clays that improve circulation, muscle tone, release toxins, and boost immunity. They do a good job with oily and some mixed skin types. Mud packs treat the entire skin's surface, although commonly used as a facial.
Since mud packs come in a variety of colors, they can be made to order for each individual. The relaxation benefits increase when compared to a massage. There's also a difference between mud masks and clay masks, so take a look at the benefits of each.
Other benefits of mud packs include relieving pain and swelling related to arthritis, digestion, anxiety, and prompt treatment for bee and wasp stings.
