Sulfur vs. clay masks

I've been using a clay mask for several years for my acne-prone skin.

I've recently read on here that sulfur masks are good for calming down reddish tinted skin (like mine.)

Does anyone on here suffer from acne-prone and reddish tinted skin? If so, what products do you use?

I'm wondering if I can use a sulfur mask and a clay mask during the week or if that would aggravate my skin too much.

I've found that Olay Total Effects (with UV protection and fragrance free) helped eliminate most of my redness and is a good non-greasy, oil-free moisturizer. I apply the moisturizer after Cellex-C Clear Complexion Complex ( w/ free shipping); a toner that contains azulene which calms inflamed and irritated skin. Also, a treatment called MaMa lotion ( contains malic and mandelic acids that treat a variety of issues such as: large pores, acne, fine lines, discolorations, and redness. I use this every other night. Using these three products have really cleared up my skin.

As far as masks go, I wouldn't use a mask more than once a week; maybe twice if your skin is very oily and isn't very sensitive. A couple I want to try that have received great reviews from others with acne: JOEY New York Pure pores Masque And Blemish Treatment (contains sulfur) and Fresh Umbrian Clay (you can find both at w/ free shipping). I hope this will help you!
Thanks for all the product recs-- I'll definitely be looking into all of them

If you decide to try the sulphur mask, make sure you test it out on a patch of skin to make sure you won't have a reaction.
