Definitely! By absorbing impurities from your skin that lead to acne, mud masks can reduce future breakouts. Mud masks can be a very effective acne treatment because they absorb impurities. Mud also has anti-inflammatory properties which help soothe existing breakouts. There are even some types of bentonite that are antibacterial to prevent acne-causing bacteria from accumulating in your pores.
Mud masks can definitely benefit sensitive skin ongoing conditions like eczema and rosacea. If you have sensitive skin that often reacts to some ingredients, mud masks are a great solution. This is especially true for mud masks that you mix yourself with, so you know there are no other ingredients in your mask.
Mud absorbs a lot of water. A mud mask is excellent not only for removing impurities from the pores like dirt and dead skin cells, but also for removing excess oil. In addition to absorbing excess oils, mud also helps regulate your skin's ongoing production of sebum (oil).
Mud masks shouldn't cause your face to feel "burned". Feeling a tingling or tightening sensation is perfectly normal. If you experience a burning sensation after using a mud mask, you should reassess the other ingredients.
