Clay’s ability to absorb oil and impurities makes it a no-brainer addition to the most effective detoxifying masks. In the past, such treatments were so drying, some were known for leaving behind a tight, dehydrated complexion as a result. Today’s launches, however, leave skin feeling hydrated and nourished with a side of serious skin-perfecting benefits (read: vacuumed pores and a whole lot less oil).
If you’re tight on time, Tatcha Clarifying Mask ($70) is powered by Japanese clay and volcanic ash for a full-skin refresh in just five minutes.
A safe-for-sensitive-skin multivitamin for congested complexions, Indie Lee Clearing Mask ($52) is packed with salicylic and glycolic acids to exfoliate, bentonite clay and colloidal sulfur to absorb impurities, and chamomile and seaweed to replenish lost softness and nourish.
