If you have oily, blemished skin or just experience pimples from time to time, these clay masks can help wick away excess shine. Clay masks do a good job at absorbing excess sebum and drawing them out from the pores while gently exfoliating the surface of the skin at the same time. Word of caution, though, in case you get addicted to how fresh and matte the skin feels after a clay mask: don’t use more than twice a week or you will end up drying the skin out. We recommend alternating between a clay mask and a hydrating mask for your bi-weekly mask routine so that skin is properly nourished.
