October 29th, 2021 | by

For all our combination skin beauties out there – we just want to start by saying, we feel you! Finding the right products for combination skin can be so gruelling!. Especially with so many options available today. Having said that, it is essential to find an exquisite skincare routine for your skin type. When it comes to clay masks at least, we have taken the experimenting and guesswork out of the equation so you don’t have to worry about what works and what doesn’t.

But first, let us understand what we are dealing with here, shall we?

The T-zone

To achieve a radiant complexion, you must first learn about your skin type and how to treat it. The astounding ability of our skin to create balance within itself is what makes us more attractive. The key to healthy skin is discipline and treating it like a baby. Literally! So think of it as finding the right products that tenderly, cautiously take care of it. Masks are an essential addition to that routine. 

It may be challenging, but it is vital to fabricate a routine that softens dry patches and overcomes shininess. It barely matters how much of your skin is oily or dry, or if your dry and oily spots aren’t in the most likely areas, it is necessary to do some research. 

Beauty is personal

You need the perfect “care for combination skin” package with all the segments and steps. Choosing products that will not only hydrate dry areas but also, won’t add to the oiliness would be the first step. And only apply therapies to the areas lacking, to cure specific issues – such as clogged pores or acne.

Let’s get to masks now! For that quick glow-up of yours, we have curated some of the best T-zone skin type masks that are worth a chance (and every penny).

1. L’Oreal Paris Pure Clay Mask Detoxify

For brighter skin, the new L’Oreal Paris pure clay mask contains charcoal. This crystal essence focuses on skin softening and radiance. It has an advanced technology that seeps up to 10 layers deep into the skin.

It is where the skin refining droplets composed of actives such as Centella Asiatica prepare the skin for optimized moisturization, smoothness, and glow.

This detox takes somewhere around 10 minutes to complete. It’s ideal for both workaholic skin and after-party glow ups. The bottle has a luxurious feel to it, and the frosted finish makes the amount of product prominent.

It gives you a soft purified complexion that is ready to go by detoxifying your oily zones and unclogging your pores!

2. The Derma Co 5% Niacinamide Clay Face Pack

The Derma Co 5 percent Niacinamide Clay Face Pack can help in the reduction of acne scars and marks. This face pack contains a 5 percent niacinamide serum, which helps to heal acne faster and soothes the surrounding skin area, reducing inflammation and allowing that clear skin to show up.

Applying this face mask aids in the lowering of oil production as well as the reduction of pigmentation caused by UV light. This Clay Mask’s chamomile extract and niacinamide combined effect help to prevent pimples, acne marks, and pigmentation while also exfoliating the skin by elevating the pH level.

Your face looks shiny, delicate, and sleek after each application. Kaolin and bentonite in the face pack certainly assist to tighten up open pores and avoid premature aging, as well as managing to keep wrinkles and fine lines at bay.

3. Sand & Sky Australian Pink Clay Porefining Face Mask

The Australian Pink Clay procured from southern and western Australia is blended with the richest and most prestigious natural extracts. The mask absorbs impurities from deep within, drawing out toxins and combating pollution.

4. Innisfree Super Volcanic Pore Clay Mask

True to its name, Innisfree’s line of Volcanic products uses volcanic ash, one form of the ejecta of Mt. Hallasan, a volcano in Jeju. And for its porous structure, the ash is mineral-rich and has excellent absorption of excess sebum and dead skin cells.

It is a deep-cleansing creamy clay mask formulated with activated Jeju Super Volcanic Clusters, walnut shells, and AHA that exfoliates while clearing pores. The mask is an all-in-one pore care solution that aims to reduce pores, absorb dirt and oil, exfoliate gently, purify deeply, cool your skin, even out skin tone, and cleanse pollution particles.

5. Mamaearth Vitamin C Face Mask with Kaolin Clay for Skin Illumination

We all want defined, blemish-free skin. But even then, the pressures of daily life can have a serious effect on our skin’s health. Mamaearth’s face mask will help you restore your radiance! This one will give you amazing, glowing, and spotless skin, kudos to the goodness of vitamin C and kaolin clay.

The product has undertaken dermatological testing and is suitable for all skin types. It contains no parabens or other harmful chemicals or toxicants and is absolutely safe. The vitamin C in the pack is a potent antioxidant that battles dark spots and helps in the prevention of melanin production. This tends to decrease hyperpigmentation, acne scars, and dark spots.

The mask beautifies the skin by removing the dead cells and ramping up circulation. It also helps to stimulate refinement of damaged skin, evens out skin tone, and calms your skin when infused with kaolin. Kaolin, like clay, is absorbent and can draw excess sebum and impurities from the skin, but it is less drying and much gentler.


While we bring the best of the clay world to you and your skin, we truly believe a quick google search and reviews can be advantageous while choosing a product. And not to forget that professional advice can go a long way. Remember, peeps, a skin-care routine is essential, and you must invest properly in it to reap the benefits.
