Clogged pores, a lack of radiance and an uneven skin surface are all symptoms of congested skin. Product build-up, poor diet and environmental factors can all leave your skin lacking its usual clarity and glow. Look for masks containing AHAs like glycolic acid and BHAs such as salicylic acid, which help resurface the skin and clear out pores without the need for manual exfoliation.
