Face Masks That Fight Acne
Renée Rouleau Rapid Response Detox Masque
Acne-prone and sensitive skin sufferers will relish in the Rapid Response Detox Masque by the Renée Rouleau brand. As its name suggests, the cooling gel mask acts quickly to rid inflamed skin of bacteria and oil deeply embedded into pores. In addition, it simultaneously reduces your complexion’s redness. The trick is to use the mask a few days prior to your monthly cycle to prevent hormonal breakouts (or when you first notice a blemish forming).
1.7 fl oz; $63.50
Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Mask
The Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Mask is packed with acne-fighting ingredients: 10 percent sulfur, oil-absorbing kaolin and bentonite clays and soothing aloe vera. The medicated sulfur mask is not only for the face—use it on your chest and back as well.
Caudalie Purifying Mask
This purifying mask is formulated to be 94 percent natural, marrying plant-based ingredients with clay. Flax seed controls oil buildup, while white clay decongests without drying skin. Caudalie’s mask is ideal if you have combination to oily skin. And if you’re short on time, it works well, too. Just smear it all over your face or your T-Zone and leave on for 10 minutes before rinsing.

Apply a thin layer of the brand’s best-selling mud mask for five to 20 minutes (it may tingle!) and revel in the fact that myriad ingredients are working to clear skin, unclog pores and eliminate excessive oil, dead skin cells, dirt and toxins. Among them: kaolin clay, eucalyptus leaves, charcoal and a mixture of AHAs and BHAs.
