The road to clear skin is not a smooth one to say the least. It’s full of bumps and potholes and craters—no pun intended! It’s probably one of the only times in your life when you should be taking the road most traveled. Because in this case, when it comes to your skin, you want to exhaust every option imaginable before taking any extreme routes like Accutane, Birth Control, Acid Peels, or Acne Chemical Peels.
I have tried everything plausible to help my skin. You name it and I’ve tried it. (Everything except those really scary peels I mentioned and Accutane.) But that’s what I’m here for- to be your test dummy so you won’t experience excessive breakouts or spend unnecessary money like I do!
My go to skincare product is always going to be a facial mask. I do them at least three times a week. With facial masks, you almost always see immediate results after just one use, which is why I prefer them and recommend them to anyone. Of course, the continuous use of them over time will show greater results, but unlike the first-time application of most skincare products, you should see results right away. In my opinion, facial masks should give you a clear indication of how well they work and the type of results you should look forward to seeing just after one use.
Hydrating and lightweight. This mask decongests your skin as the product draws out dirt and oil from your pores, which helps reduce their appearance and prevents future breakouts from occurring. It’s made from 9,000-year-old black moor Mud from Ireland, hijiki seaweed, volcanic ash, and activated charcoal powder.
This mask is the definition of a decongestant mask as it’s made from 100% natural calcium bentonite clay. You will literally feel your skin pulsate as the clay deep cleans your pores and balances out your skin’s natural oils. This mask also helps reduce the appearance of acne scars and improves skin texture.

Pumpkin is great for all skin types because it’s rich in Vitamin A, C, E, & T! Vitamin A soothes and softens the skin, Vitamin C helps heal the skin, and Vitamins E & T are acne fighting vitamins. So, pumpkin masks are especially great for anyone battling acne. This hydrating masks decongests the skin and rids it of excess oil and in doing so it shrinks your pores, and reduces inflammation and prevents future breakouts. This masks also makes a great exfoliator.
Peter Thomas Roth has created magic in a bottle with his Therapeutic Sulfur Masque. The mask is made up of 10% sulfur, aloe, and purifying kaolin and bentonite clays. The sulfur is used to clear any active breakouts, while the aloe is used to soothe the skin, all while the kaolin and bentonite clays absorb any excess oil left over on the skin’s surface, leaving your skin glowing just after one use!
Boasted as a fan favorite from Tacha’s signature collection, this mask will give your skin an immediate glow. With two types of Vitamin C and AHA’S from 7 different fruits, the natural nutrients and vitamins gently remove dirt and oil build up from your skin, which will help improve skin texture and promote the production of new skin cells.
This hydrating facial mask is jammed packed with natural nutrients that will get your skin looking better than ever. The Kojic Acid, extracts of Licorice Root, Mulberry, and Grapeseed will help reduce the appearance of old acne scars and even out any skin discoloration, while the Olive Leaf Extract and Vitamin E hydrate and brighten your skin.
