The 100% clay masks are a good alternative for all skin types.

Also, different types of masks are easily made at home, with some ingredients from the fridge. Depending on your skin type, opt for honey, tea, avocado, chocolate, etc.

1/2 of a ripe avocado

2 tablespoons of honey

Apply to face for 15 to 20 minutes, then rinse.
