Clay Mask for Sensitive Skin

Hi! I am a teen with sensitive skin and congested pores. I have tried a couple of clay masks, but they all leave my skin pink or red, stinging or burning, and swollen. Any recommendations for a clay mask that will tighten or unclog my pores but not irritate my skin?

@edentybee Sensitive to what? Varies by person.


You may be leaving the product on too long (posted instructions are just a general guide, it's ok to adjust for your skin) or on areas where not needed. I use clay masks where needed only, instead of all over and remove with a warm cotton pad. ORIGINS - Clear Improvementยฎ Active Charcoal Mask to Clear Pores fresh Umbrian Clay Purifying Treatment Bar 7.1 oz/ 201 g - only wet a corner gingerly, apply that corner on wet skin, let dry completely before storing


And moisturize afterwards. Using a mask shouldn't be a daily thing either.

@edentybee Try PHILOSOPHY - Purity Made Simple Pore Extractor Mask. Itโ€™s really gentle and non-irritating.
