Known for their pore-refining and oil-absorbing powers, clay masks have turned icky mud into a surprise must-have for every skincare devotee. They’re especially beloved for being rapid skin savers, totally transforming even the most troubled of pelts.
If you’re new to the buzz, these three masks by local brand Sage & Tera are as good a place as any to start. Made from a range of blemish-busting clays and other antibacterial ingredients, each pot is brimming with benefits. But if you don’t quite know which one you need, here’s a handy guide to what’s best for which common skin issue!

WHAT CLAY MASK SHOULD YOU USE?

THE ISSUE: DULL, BLOTCHY SKIN
THE MASK: The Cullen DNA, P295
WHAT IT DOES: This mask promises to give you bright and ageless skin—just like that of a certain fictional vampire family that sparkles in the sun (wink!). Formulated with Moroccan ghassoul clay, mild Australian pink clay, and kaolin clay, this vitamin-rich, anti-aging glow booster combats oxidative stress and chases away dullness.
THE ISSUE: ACNE BREAKOUTS
THE MASK: Vanishing Spell, P295
WHAT IT DOES: True to its name, this mask perfects your pelt by making your flaws magically disappear. Made from a combination of tea tree oil and French white clay, it’s a super effective anti-inflammatory that helps quell breakouts while reducing inflammation and scarring.

NOTE: As this mask also contains curcurmin, expect it to leave behind a yellow stain on your skin. Not to worry, though! The stain rubs off after some thorough cleansing. We’d recommend oil-based cleansers for this!
THE ISSUE: CLOGGED PORES
THE MASK: Icky Green Goo, P295
WHAT IT DOES: Don’t let the name fool you—nothing about this detoxifying mask is gross at all! In fact, the volcanic ash, French white and green clay, and various healing oils in it helps to decongest pores, minimize sebum production, and reverse the effects of pollution.

But when in doubt, just try all three out!
