Guaranteed there will be moments in your skincare life when it’s going to need a total reset. You might be familiar with the detox-needing feeling—your pores are clogged, your skin is oily, it might feel bumpy or you might notice breakouts… it’s just not feeling its best. Your skin just needs a clean slate, which means it’s probably due for exfoliation, deep cleansing, and then plenty of hydration.
Luckily, there are face masks that can get you that clean-slate-feeling overnight (and for some, after a few minutes). Many of these work to clarify, resurface, exfoliate, unclog pores, brighten, and even moisturize the skin. You don’t exactly want to use them every day since they can have powerful active ingredients, but they’re helpful if you need a boost or pick-me-up if your skin has been on the fritz. And for those who have sensitive skin or might be easily irritated by new products, test it out on a small patch of your skin before going all-in with the mask.
