The road to clear skin is not a smooth one to say the least. It’s full of bumps and potholes and craters—no pun intended! It’s probably one of the only times in your life when you should be taking the road most traveled. Because in this case, when it comes to your skin, you want to exhaust every option imaginable before taking any extreme routes like Accutane, Birth Control, Acid Peels, or Acne Chemical Peels. Which is why we love Peter Thomas Roth’s facial masks. Not only are they Cruelty Kitty approved they are free of sulfates and phthalates and are made specifically for normal, oily, combination, dry, and sensitive skin. Making them perfect for any skin type.

1. Pumpkin Enzyme Mask is great for all skin types as it’s rich in Vitamin A, C, E, & T. Vitamin A soothes and softens the skin, vitamin C assists in healing the skin from sun damage, and vitamins E & T are acne fighting vitamins. The Pumpkin Enzyme Mask will decongest the skin and rid it of excess oil. In doing so, it will shrink the pores and reduce inflammation and prevent future breakouts.

2. 24K Gold Pure Luxury Lift & Firm Mask is made up of caffeine, peridot (a gemstone rich in magnesium) and 24k gold. They all work together to tighten, firm, hydrate and reenergize your skin. It will leave your skin feeling incredibly soft and will help improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

3. Irish Moor Mud Purifying Black Mask is hydrating and lightweight. This mask decongests your skin as the product draws out dirt and oil from the pores, which helps reduce their appearance and prevents future breakouts from occurring. It does wonders in soothing any inflammation you may be experiencing from current breakouts. This purifying mask is made from 9,000-year-old black moor Mud from Ireland, hijiki seaweed, volcanic ash, and activated charcoal powder.

4. Therapeutic Sulfur Mask has a medicated formula enriched with purifying kaolin, bentonite clay, and sulfur. All key ingredients used to treat and heal acne components. The active ingredients work to exfoliate the skin, clear blemishes, diminish the appearance of hyperpigmentation, and minimize the appearance of pores.
