The best mask for you depends on your own individual skin type and what your skin goals are. The key questions to ask yourself include:
- What's your skin type?
- Are there certain concerns you want to address? (ex: dark undereye circles, acne, fine lines or wrinkles)
Once you know the answer to these questions, you can find masks and products with the best ingredients for your unique skin! Below, we break down common skin types and what to look out for.
Skincare is not one size fits all, so what is your skin telling you?
If your skin gets rough patches or even flakey, you might have a dry skin type. Dry skin is more susceptible to signs of aging, but typically has smaller pores than combination or oily skin types. Look for hydrating masks with ingredients like hyaluronic acid and tea tree oil to help restore your skin’s natural glow and moisture levels.
Here are some masks ideal for dry skin:
Intensive Moisturizing Rubber Mask
This two-step mask first includes an extremely moisturizing cream that you then seal in with a rubber mask. This mask with hyaluronic acid delivers heavy duty hydration.
Hyaluronic Acid Modeling Peel Off Mask
This mix-it-yourself mask is one you paint on with a supplied spatula. It molds to your face for an exact fit to lock in extremely hydrating ingredients like hyaluronic acid.
If your skin tends to get shiny by the end of the day, have visible pores, and is prone to acne, you might have an oily skin type. On the bright side, oily skin typically looks younger longer as those oils help hydrate the skin.
Here are some masks ideal for oily skin:
Jeju Volcanic Ash Facial Mask
Formulated with volcanic ash straight from Jeju Island in Korea, this mask is great for absorbing excess oil on the skin. Also formulated with AHA, it lightly exfoliates the skin to remove dead skin cells and clear pores.
Charcoal Pore-Purifying Rubber Mask
Combination skin is perhaps the most common type. You may have combination skin if your face is dry in some areas while remaining oily and shiny in others (especially the T-zone, your forehead, nose, and chin).
Here are some recommended masks for combination skin:
Color Shine Peel Off Mask
