The Best Face Masks For Your Skin Type

How to Know What Face Mask Is Right For You

Once you've mastered your skin care routine, the best way to keep your complexion glowing is to add in a mask treatment. Skin expert Kate Somerville recommends using a mask once or twice a week depending on your skin's needs. To find out what you should be using for your skin type, read on.

Sensitive: For sensitive skin types that experience redness, Somerville advises looking "for something with minerals to calm any inflammation." Try Avène's Soothing Moisture Mask ($26), a creamy option that features natural minerals from the thermal waters in the Cévennes mountains.

Acne-Prone: "If you've done a lot of extractions, a clay mask is a great choice, because it will pull any remaining infection out of the pores and close them down," Somerville explains. A clay mask is also a wonderful option for oily complexions, because it will also help to absorb any excess sebum. Try the Kate Somerville Clearing Mask ($45), which is formulated with kaolin clay to combat oily skin.

Dry: Add moisture back to a parched complexion with a hydrating treatment, like Caudalie's Moisturizing Cream Mask ($39). You can also use an exfoliating mask that will dissolve away dry, dead skin cells, such as Ren's Glycol Lactic Radiance Renewal Mask ($55), which contains glycolic acid to smooth roughness.

Combination: If your skin is truly combination — think: an oily T-zone matched with a dry complexion — then try one oil-absorbing mask where you need it and a moisture-rich option on the dry areas of your face.
