There are hundreds of products out there to treat acne, and when you have an active breakout, picking the right one can be pretty overwhelming. This is why we love Beaublends.

WHY WE’RE OBSESSED: Through the binding properties of activated charcoal, this powder mask draws out bacteria, chemicals, and other impurities that often clog your pores and irritate skin. Bentonite clay helps lighten acne marks and heal scar tissue, leaving your skin brighter and balanced. To use, simply combine 1-2 teaspoons of powder with equal parts water in a bowl to form a paste. Then, apply evenly over your skin and leave it to dry. If you’re in a rush, dab the solution on active pimples instead, then rinse off with warm water after a minute.
