5 Blackhead-Clearing Masks to Add to Your Stash, Like Yesterday
On a scale of manageable to stubborn, blackheads always seem to fall to the latter. These tiny clogged pores (i.e., open comedones) are difficult to tackle, especially if you’re not armed with the right skin-care products. A deep-cleansing mask can bust blackheads in no time, which is why we rounded up five of our favorite masks to help you purify pores and detoxify your skin.
This cleanser/mask duo from Garnier is the pore-purifying clay formula your blackheads need. It’s specially created for oily skin and contains kaolin clay to remove both surface and deep impurities.
Another clay mask we love is this Clarifying Clay Mask from SkinCeuticals. It’s non-drying thanks to a blend of kaolin and bentonite clay, as well as botanicals and hydroxy acid to soothe and exfoliate.
For a detox mask or cleanse, try the AcneFree Clay Detox Mask With Charcoal. Not only will the formula help minimize your current breakouts with vitamin E and zinc, it also works to address excess oil and impurities.
For a deep clean, the Rare Earth Cleansing mask is a must-try. It has a combination of Amazonian white clay and aloe barbadensis to purify and brighten the skin. Not to mention, it only takes ten minutes to work its magic.
If you prefer sheet masks, this three-step kit by COSRX will become your new favorite. Start your blackhead-busting regimen with a three-sheet process: a softening one, a clearing one and a relaxing one.
