Just like her sisters, Khloe Kardashian’s skin always looks flawless – even in those close-up Instagram selfies and bare-faced snaps.
But the reality star has confessed that, actually, she struggles to keep her oily skin under control, and often suffers from enlarge pores and breakouts just like the rest of us.
Especially, she reveals, after wearing heavy makeup for a night out or a glam photoshoot.
Talking about her skincare woes on khloewithak.com, Khloe writes, “I hate being oily, so I do lots of s**t to my face to make my pores look smaller!”
Sound like a familiar battle? Well then you’ll be happy to learn that Khloe has also unveiled her ultimate secret weapon, when it comes to keeping her skin looking clear.
Yep, something works! But that’s not even the best part.
The really great news is that unlike some of the fancy pants treatments the Kardashians love, Khloe’s secret weapon is refreshingly affordable – and you might have even seen it before!
Enter the Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask, £23.
“I love this charcoal mask from Origins because it makes my skin look extra smooth,” she explains.
I’ve tried a bunch of charcoal masks and this one trumps them all. Not only does it dissolve and suck out the dirt from my pores, it’s not drying like many other charcoal-based masks.”
“It’s got a major cult following and acne-prone people SWEAR that it has changed their skin,” she adds.
Containing Bamboo Charcoal and White China Clay, the mask has been designed to draw out impurities from deep down in the skin – see ya blackheads and blocked-up pores – to leave your complexion looking clearer, softer and smoother.

Origins reccommends using the mask once a week, and leaving it on your skin for 10 to 15 minutes.
Khloe has devised her own routine however, which seems to work for her.
“I put it on whenever I feel like the texture of my skin is getting bumpy or after days of shooting wearing heavy make-up,” she says.
Beware of using deep cleaning masks and exfoliators too often, as they can leave your skin feeling dry and damaged. Like Khloe, experiment with what works for you, while staying on the safe side.
