How many times a week do you use a mask? I wear a mask once a week – Alpha-H mask is the one I go to.
Recently, my skin has been bouncing from really oily to really dry because of the acne medication. On days that it is extremely oily, I like to use this mask. I feel that the white clay in the mask clears the oil and gunk off my face and makes it more balanced. It definitely felt that way when after using it, I had 2 tiny spots which were “drawn out”. There was also another instance when after I used it, my giant spot became half the size.
Immediately after applying the mask, there is a tingly sensation. If you are not used to this feeling, it might be a little uncomfortable. I actually like this tingly feeling as it makes me feel as though the mask is working. As the mask dries, the tingly sensation goes away. After 10 minutes, the mask should be completely dry, crusty and cracks when you try and move your face.
The instructions say to remove using a damp cloth but I usually remove it by rinsing my face with lukewarm water. The skin on my face does not feel like it’s too tight after using this mask. In fact, it feels absolutely clean and refreshed!

I am loving this mud mask. I feel that it does the job for me and does not dehydrate or irritate my sensitive skin. Of course, every person is different so this might not work for you but I highly recommend it for
