Whether you need to strip, cleanse, hydrate or tighten, face masks are becoming more and more popular and integrated into weekly beauty regimens. From clay to peel-off masks, here are my top picks!
Charcoal (blemishes, acne, troubled skin)
If you have blemish or acne-ridden skin, or need a deep pore cleanse, opt for a charcoal based cleanser and face mask!

Paraben free , cruelty-free and natural, this activated charcoal mud mask helps to treat acne to keep skin clear and blemish-free. While it doesn’t smell as amazing as fruity or floral masks, if applied 1-2x per week, it works really well to clear up problem skin.

Peel off masks are usually stripping and clarifying masks, removing built-up toxins from your skin in a way different than clay masks. They often make you feel like you’re peeling off that layer of grit and grime, leaving your skin with a bare, clean base. While wash-off masks and peel-off masks are both beneficial (I wouldn’t say one is “better” than the other), they have different focuses and effects on your skin.
