The Aztec Secret clay mask ($10.95 on Amazon) is already a cult-favorite for healing even cystic acne, and is most effective with apple cider vinegar. There's NOTHING worse than having to run to the corner store at 10 p.m. for some damn vinegar right before ~self-care~ time so have that ACV on hand!

Promising review: "I bought this two-pack a year ago. I'd been using it with my Aztec facial mask, and it was fantastic for that. But then I found another great skin use for this on a daily basis. I applied Bragg's to a cotton ball and used it as a toner all over my face after I used my facial wash. It does smell pretty rancid, but the results I'm getting out weigh the slight annoyance of the smell. After just ONE application before bed I woke up the next morning with softer, less oily skin, and noticeably reduced redness on my blemishes. In one week, the active blemishes decreased in size and the pain from them decreased as well. By my second week, the redness on older blemishes that have since healed but were discolored have actually lightened significantly and the active blemishes are now inactive and fading fast. My pores are shrinking as well! I'm thrilled with the results I'm getting. This makes my skin feel so soft and clean. I love this stuff!" —Jennie
