Are they ok to use if you are white? I have a tube of this mud mask stuff and then I heard some stuff in the news today and now I'm not sure its ok to use it despite me just trying to get rid of my pores and not doing anything else with it.

Sorry if this is a tough subject

If you're wearing a mask for its skin-helping properties and not as a caricature, then you're fine.

Also, I assume you're doing this in the privacy of your home or in a skin-care salon where such things are commonly applied.

People sometimes look for outrage where none actually exists (except online in social media, which you should always take anything coming from it with a healthy grain of salt).

Don't throw away your shot.

LOL at myself. I saw the subject line and thought of Covid related masks. Wondered why the heck anyone would want to breath through charcoal! Hey, what can I say? Haven't had my first cup of coffee yet!

Doc John, love your reply.
