Pretty much everyone with a breakout has recreated that scene from Mrs. Doubtfire where Robin Williams sticks his face into a pie to make it look like a face mask. Because when you want to stop pimples in their tracks, the quickest route is globbing on a zit-busting mask (oh and it’s also a pretty good way to hide the fact that your true identity isn’t an elderly British nanny, too).

Thankfully, countless zit-zapping face masks exist that fight those pesky nuisances, filled with ingredients like detoxifying sulfur, pore-clearing clay, and exfoliating fruit enzymes. Personally, even though serums and toners can contain similar acne-fighting ingredients, indulging in the skin-boosting self-care treatment of a face mask will always make me feel human again.

From May Lindstrom’s cult-fave Problem Solver to a probiotic-rich option by Marie Veronique, these are the tried-and-true face masks that I’ve continually turned to (frantically) while facing a pimple. Consider them skin saviors.

Keep scrolling to shop face masks that are amazing at calming blemishes.

You can also fight zits by sipping on these drink recipes that help clear breakouts from skin gurus. And this is how to keep hormonal acne at bay—for good.
