Whether you suffer from breakouts, oily skin or clogged pores, a clarifying facial mask can help. Clarifying masks are designed to clean out pores and tighten the skin, to not only make skin healthier but to give the appearance of tightness and porelessness.
It's very hard to differentiate one mask from another; many of the brands that offer clarifying facial masks are lesser known, and some give the impression of being homemade or boutique brands. What's more, they all claim to do the same thing, but can have very different ingredients and forms. So how can you choose? How will you know which product is spectacular, and which is crap? Will you rely on brands you know? Or perhaps, pretty labels? Maybe the ingredients that sound the most natural?
