Tom Ford Intensive Purifying Mud Mask ($60, tomford.com

Intended for weekly use, this mask draws oils and toxins from the skin and aids in diminishing fine lines. Ford himself says he uses it regularly, so if you need more convincing, look up picture of the designer’s complexion. That should do it.
