If you're "blessed" with acne-prone but sensitive skin, this mask should be right up your alley. Clay is incredibly useful for fighting acne and overly oily skin because it soaks up excess oil without overdrying your skin. A dash of honey provides natural antibacterial properties, and adding a little bit of cucumber will create a calming, soothing effect. I recommend using this mask once a week after cleansing and exfoliating. Here's what you'll need:
- 1/2 cup green clay
- One cucumber
- One tsp. honey
- A fruit/vegetable juicer (optional)

Step one: Cut the cucumber in half, width-wise. Cut two thin slices (you'll use these later). Then, juice the cucumber with your juicer. If you don't have a juicer, just pour some cool tap water into a bowl, then slice the remaining cucumber and let them sit in the water for about 15 minutes.
Step two: In a bowl, use a fork to mix the cucumber juice and honey with the clay until you have a thick paste. (You can add more juice or water to get the consistency the way you like it.)
Step three: Apply the paste to your face, then place the remaining two cucumber slices over your eyes. Go rest and relax! When you remove the mask after 10 minutes or so, you should see clearer, smoother, calm skin.
