The Byrdie Australia office has become the scene of quite a few monster breakouts lately. At first I thought the culprit behind these seemingly coordinated skin freakouts was a simple change in weather. (That, or we'd all somehow timed an extreme overindulgence in sugar.) Now? I'm not so sure. Because between fellow sufferers (yes, I have also been afflicted), I've seen everything from regular congestion to hormonal acne. While these conditions are caused by different things, there is good news. All spots can generally be improved quickly via a purifying face mask, if only temporarily. The root cause always needs to be treated for lasting results, but a stopgap product that calms inflammation and reduces the look of pimples is never not welcome. Thus, stocking up on drugstore face masks has been my number one piece of quick fix advice of late. (Also, overnight spot treatments—this one rules.

Ahead you'll find the drugstore face masks I've recently been recommending to heal emergency breakouts. Each one is effective, wallet-friendly, and handy to have stashed away. So, whether you're currently mid-face meltdown, or just want to be prepared for the future, you'd be wise to add a few to cart.
