    Before you opt for a sheet mask over a wash off mask for the sake of convenience, think about the deep cleanse a wash off mask will be able to give you. They come in especially handy for those with oily skin and clogged pores. Many of these masks also serve as gentle and effective exfoliants to ensure all the grime and dirt leave the surface of your skin for a smoother, clearer complexion. That’s why we have rounded up some of our favourites that will get rid of enlarged pores.
