Acne-prone skin requires routines and products specifically formulated to combat oil, tame shine, and treat stubborn acne and adding a weekly mask can be a great way to give your skin a helping hand. When you’re looking for a mask, be sure to choose one that is water-based, not oil-based. You also want to look for ingredients like beta hydroxy acids (salicylic acid is common), which remove excess oil and exfoliate dead skin cells that clog pores, as well as alpha-hydroxy acids, like glycolic and lactic acid. Knowing what to look for in a face mask will help ensure you’re investing in the right product for your skin type.
This purifying mask deep cleans and visibly reduces the look of pores using bamboo charcoal to flush out dirt, oil, and environmental debris. Additionally, white China clay absorbs toxins while lecithin dissolves impurities. Using this one to two times per week keeps oily skin clear and refreshed, but it can also be used as a spot treatment on pimples to draw out dirt and tame those red, angry, clogged pores!
