These two particular products by MAC and Origins are great for deep pore cleansing, especially if you are fighting some unwanted pimples. They really work at unclogging your pores, removing dirt, oil, and makeup that can buildup and cause breakouts.
Above is a close up of the Origins Clear Improvements Charcoal Mask. This mask is very creamy and goes on really smooth, but does not have any exfoliating properties, so it is good use it in conjunction with the MAC Volcanic exfoliator. HOW TO USE: Once a week, open pores with a warm, damp towel and layer mask on. Allow to dry, and rinse well. The mask can be purchased for $24.00 from here.
Equally as amazing is MAC's Volcanic Ash Exfoliator. This product works well with the Origins Face Mask because it has the exfoliating beads that the Origins face mask lacks. And we all know how important it is to exfoliate our skin, right?? The texture of this is grittier than the Origins formula since it is more of a scrub. HOW TO USE: Apply a dime size amount to clean face once a week, gently scrubbing in circular motions. Take a warm towel and steam face 2-3 times while the exfoliator is still on. Lastly, rinse face thoroughly. It can be purchased here for $28.00.
Tip* Try using the Volcanic Ash Exfoliator by itself the first night, followed with the Origins mask the following night. This combination is a great way to really clean and brighten up your skin!
