The Best Clay Face Masks for Some Very Necessary Pampering

Searching for a skincare routine that will give you that dewy glow? Or looking to try at-home facials as part of your self-care? Do as Gabrielle Union does—and go for a face mask. In particular, we love the power of a good clay mask. Its ability to effectively exfoliate, brighten skin, reduce acne breakouts, and unclog pores, has increasingly made it a go-to beauty item. But not all clay masks are alike—and it's important to check the ingredients to make sure they suit your skin type and treatment goals. The best clay mask for oily skin or for acne-prone skin, for example, will have alpha or beta-hydroxy acids. And for dry, sensitive skin, you should be on the hunt for calming ingredients like aloe and chamomile. Either way, you can't go wrong with these dermatologist-approved picks.
