I've been dealing with acne since I was a teen, and I'm still dealing with it now that I'm in my late 20s. However, I realised my breakouts are due to my skin becoming more sensitive over the years. When I use too many potent skin-care products or neglect to care for my skin's moisture barrier, my skin breaks out into tiny bumps and blemishes. My skin looks and feels inflamed and irritated. I'm used to handling breakouts with salicylic-acid treatments or using Differin, but I needed something that can handle breakouts without sensitizing my skin further.
I have a fairly normal skin type that leans dry during the wintertime, and traditional clay masks tend to dry out my skin even more. I came across Aavrani's Healing Rose Clay Mask, and the moment I read "healing," it immediately caught my attention. It's formulated for those with ultrasensitive skin, right up my alley! The mask claims to draw out impurities, restore damaged skin, and brighten and improve skin elasticity. The mask seems like it was made for my skin type and skin concerns. After using it a few times, I can attest to three of those claims, so far.
After one use, Aavrani's Healing Rose Clay Mask calmed down my skin and reduced the appearance of inflammation. My bumps and breakouts were minimized, and my skin looked a little brighter. The mask visibly draws out impurities, diminishing whiteheads and clearing up active acne like a pimple patch. It did all this without drying out my skin and making it feel stripped.
