Salicylic Acid

Exfoliates inside pores to clear out oil and dead skin cells, helps to treat and prevent breakouts. (see more here)

TIPS - How to use the Clearing Clay Mask for best results:

Bona Fide Skin Care's Clearing Clay Mask is an acne face mask can be used in a few ways, depending on your skin.

You can chose to simply use it as a treatment mask two times a week for 20 minutes, and/or try the following for extra benefit:

  • Use it as a skin primer to prevent oil and shine during the day, and smooth and refine enlarged. Follow with your concealer/foundation. This has the added benefit of continuing to treat your skin throughout the day - particularly good for preventing blackheads!
  • This also works great for men - you might not use a concealer (however there's nothing stopping you!). Applying a very thin layer to your nose will help prevent shine and even out redness
  • Use it as a spot treatment for any pimples or cysts. Apply some clay mask directly on top of the pimple, and leave on overnight to reduce healing time (aka reduce the Pimples Lifespan)
  • If you have "combination" skin, use this clay mask on the oily/clogged areas such as the t zone (nose, forehead and chin), and apply a nourishing mask to your cheeks. 
  • For extra stubborn blackheads and clogged skin use daily - apply a thin layer to those areas only (usually the nose and chin) at night. Either leave on overnight or rinse off after 20 minutes, follow with a light moisturizer
