If your only experience with charcoal has been chucking it under your grill in the Summer, then be prepared to be pleasantly surprised by Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask (£22). Just think of the active charcoal as a magnet that sucks the pore-cloggers out. It's highly absorptive, making it the perfect deep cleaner for your acne-afflicted skin. The best way to use this mask? Run a steamy bath or shower before slathering it all over your face. Soak in the tub or stand in the steam, allowing the mask to absorb completely. Let dry, rinse well, and revel in your instantly clearer skin.
