Acne prone skin affects so many people, and it can come at any stage of life. Most women experience this when they are pregnant or post pregnancy which is my case. After having our little one, my skin went crazy. I’ve personally never had a problem with acne so when it did start to appear, I was so lost on what to do or where to start. I thought to go to a dermatologist would clear it right up, but this specific dermatologist wasn’t very helpful or even sure how to clear/fix my skin. I am no dermatologist, but I feel like there isn’t a one size fit all face medicine for everyone, so you have to dig deep when dealing with the skin. After trying what they recommended I decided to take matters into my own hands and found a variety of products that worked with not only ridding the acne and minor breakouts but also got rid of the acne scars. Scroll down to see what I have tried and tested and consider the best face masks for acne.
THE BEST FACE MASKS FOR ACNE
Acne Solutions™ Oil-Control Cleansing Mask

How It Works: Soothing natural clay-based mask helps heal blemishes, prevent breakouts and keep skin shine-free. Medicated formula goes deep to clean and unclog pores, rid skin of excess oil. In just 5 minutes, skin looks clearer, smoother, less blemish-troubled. Gentle, non-drying formula won’t irritate skin. Oil-free.
GLAMGLOW SUPERMUD® Activated Charcoal Treatment
Best For: Normal, Oily, Combination
How It Works: The SUPERMUD® Clearing Treatment was developed to address common skin concerns, which include blemishes, redness, scars, razor bumps, and in-grown hair. The potent mud formula supports skin’s natural oil balance, while a proprietary blend of six acids (glycolic acid, salicylic acid, lactic acid, mandelic acid, pyruvic acid, and tartaric acid) works to help minimize pores and create clearer skin. Activated-X charcoal lifts away dirt and other skin congestions, resulting in a refined, healthy-looking complexion.

Detox is the perfect mask for those with sensitive skin and large congested pores.
My Thoughts: I was starting to break out so I decided to try this mask and my breakout went away after one use. The mask was cooling and completely easy to wipe away. It leaves my skin feeling soft and clean.
