I used to think that when it comes to dealing with acne, less is more. Though over time, experience has taught me otherwise. There are many quality products available that aid in treatment. You’ve just got to pick the right ones, with no harmful ingredients. One great addition to any skincare routine are masks, which can be put on at pretty much any time of the day. They’re a great way to provide your skin with an extra boost of nutrients. Several types of masks, including peel-off, sheet, exfoliating or clay ones, can be effective.
Listed below are some cheap products that I found to really make a difference on my face. People dealing with acne and/or combination skin will especially like these.
1. Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay
Don’t be fooled by the plain packaging! A 100% natural clay mask, consisting of only calcium bentonite, this is quite a strong. Due to its strength, it’s usually advised to be used on a weekly basis. You’ll feel even the deepest impurities being drawn out like a magnet from your skin. This can be mixed with a little water, rosewater or apple cider vinegar until it forms a thick paste.
2. Formula 10.0.6 Pore Be Pure Clarifying Mud Mask
The ‘pores be pure’ mask is based from kaolin and bentonite, along with several other ingredients. So, this isn’t too stripping and can be used every 3-4 days as well. Its got beneficial extracts from strawberry, rosemary and yarrow. If you prefer strong fragrances, you’ll want to try this product.
3. Freeman Polishing Charcoal + Black Sugar Gel Mask
Freeman, feeling beautiful, is a skincare company widely known for its ultra-cheap face masks. Most of their formulas are highly raved, like this one. I love the dual-action idea, so it exfoliates at the same time. Surprisingly, all skin types are suited to try out this gem!
4. Yes To Tomatoes Detoxifying Charcoal Mud Mask
Yes To Tomatoes has come up this 96% natural mask, with the botanical goodness of tomato, aloe, watermelon, pumpkin and chamomile. It has got a rich creamy formula free from parabens and several harmful chemicals. There’s also some salicylic acid, excellent for keeping zits at bay.
5. Neutrogena Rapid Clear Daily Leave-On Mask
Though we’ve seen a big trend with mud masks, other kinds of masks can be good for acne-prone skin too. This leave-on mask is gentle enough for daily use. Due to its composition of benzoyl peroxide, it can slowly get rid of breakouts. People have noticed smaller pimples within a day of using this.
