Oily skin and acne breakouts typically go hand-in-hand. As a guy, it can be frustrating to manage an oily nose or greasy forehead, and if it goes untreated, it can escalate into pesky blemishes and breakouts.
The best way to treat oily or acne-prone skin is to regularly use a face mask. In particular, clay face masks work by harnessing all-natural ingredients like Bentonite Clay and Charcoal to detoxify pores and calm the complexion.
It may seem like a hassle, but here at Disco, we know that you don’t have a lot of time or patience to take care of your skin. That’s why we optimized the most powerful, yet gentle ingredients in formulas that are going to be quick, easy solutions for your skin.
Why Do You Need a Clay Mask for Men?
There are a lot of face mask options out there. So how do you know the face mask of your choice is doing the work you need it to? First off, you need a clay mask in particular. Second, make sure it’s designed for men’s skin. Why? Here are a few reasons:
- Other Face Masks Were Made for Women’s Skin: Most face masks are made with women’s skin in mind. The men’s skincare industry is still decades behind the women’s, and most brands have tested and designed their products in tangent with the particular needs of female skin types. You need a product that was made by a guy, for a guy.
- You Need a Face Mask That is pH - Optimized (for Men): The surface of the skin has a particular pH level to it. For women, it’s much higher than that of men’s skin. Because of the hormone testosterone, men produce more oil, have a higher pH level, and tend to have larger pores. You need a face mask that is designed around these particular biological facets.
- It’s Easy, Effective, and You Only Need It Once/Week: Face masks have a stigma that they take forever to do, they’re messy, and overall a hassle for your skincare routine. However, a clay mask is designed to be needed only once a week. The ingredients are powerful and effective enough to do the powerful detoxification work for your skin in one go, once a week. And – it’s easy and mess-free with just your sink and a washcloth.
Benefits of Using a Clay Mask for Oily and Acne-Prone Skin:
Targets Breakouts and Blemishes
A clay mask is excellent for both treating and preventing breakouts. If you have acne-prone skin, a clay mask will treat breakouts with powerful ingredients, absorb any excess moisture, prevent the breakout from spreading, and lessen the severity of zits.
Clears Out Pores
Clay masks stick to the skin, coming into physical contact with the pores on the face. In doing so, the masks absorb the dirt, bacteria, oil, and gunk stuck in your pores with detoxifying ingredients like activated Charcoal. If you struggle with blackheads and clogged pores, clay masks will be your new best friend.
Absorbs Excess Oil
If you struggle with oily skin, a clay mask is excellent for absorbing excess oil and grease from the complexion with ingredients like Bentonite Clay. Your skin may be overcompensating oil because of a testosterone fluctuation, or because your skin is dehydrated. No matter the cause, clay masks will soak up the oil and prevent future oiliness from occurring.
Calms Inflammation and Redness
Last, a clay mask for men will calm inflammation, skin irritation, and redness. Our skin can become irritated for a number of reasons, including harmful drugstore products, environmental pollutants, and dehydration. When the skin becomes inflamed and red, it can be difficult to use any product at all on the affected area! Clay masks are uber gentle on sensitive, inflamed skin, so as not to exacerbate the problem, and instead calm and soothe the skin.
