Choosing the first mask you see (or the one in the discount bin) might not be the best call, especially if your skin has certain needs. Dry? Oily? Acne-prone? Wrinkly skin? You need to find the best face mask for your skin that will meet your particular needs. Before you even start searching for the product you should first figure out what your skin type is, check out this article as a guideline to which type of skin you have: What Skin type are you?
Once you have a solid idea of what skin type you are and what results you want to achieve from using a face mask, you can now proceed on searching for a face mask available on the market that's best for you. There are several types of face masks you can choose from depending on personal preference or even differing lifestyles. Clay mask is one of the most typical types of mask you hear a lot about or would be utilized at a spa center, these face masks typically start off as a clay of your choice and once mixed with liquid, it transforms into a paste-like substance for application. The best clay masks help stimulate blood circulation and blood flow (that tingling feeling you get if you’ve tried clay mask before), draw out toxins out of your skin and diminish signs of redness and irritation. Sheet masks or hydrogel masks are best for intensive skin revitalization, while charcoal masks are best for ones who are looking for an intense deep cleaning session. Other common face mask options include tea masks that provides antioxidant protection or anti-aging benefits, caffeine based masks for skin energizing purposes, gel masks for instant hydration, and even DIY face masks that uses all natural ingredients you can find in your kitchen.
Best Mask for Acne Prone Skin
For those who suffer from acne prone skin may want to search for a mask that help combat current blemishes, yet at the same time is able to prevent future outbreaks and help improve skin appearance. The best type of mask for this category would certainly be a charcoal face mask or a clay based mask as both these choices will penetrate deep into the pores to pull out all the impurities that may be clogging the pores. My recommendation to you would be the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, whenever I get occasional acne around the time of the month, I’d go to my jug of clay and mix it with raw apple cider vinegar and two drops of tea tree oil. Apply the paste to your face for about 30-45 minutes and wait for the magic to happen, then rinse off with warm water. You may feel a slight pulsating feeling on your face when the mask starts to dry but that is absolutely normal and is an expected reaction. Trust me, the end results will surprise you.
Best Mask for Dry Skin
If you have typical dry skin like me, the best type of face mask will be something ultra-hydrating and nourishing. Our goal is to find a mask that feeds our skin with sufficient moisture to stay hydrated and refreshed, the best types will be a cream mask or gel mask. Since moisture is the main concern for those with dry skin, an overnight mask may seem to be the best of all as it provides continuous moisture throughout the night allowing us to wake with brighter, hydrated, more refreshed skin in the morning. But not everyone (including myself) is able to tolerate the stickiness of an overnight mask especially if you roll around a lot during your sleep.
An alternative (less messy) option for you to choose from that would work just as well is
Delegant’s 24k Gold Fruit For Your Skin Hydrogel Mask by Tiffson Co., this face mask was tailor made for those with extremely dry skin and works wonders to nourish and re-hydrate your skin within 30 minutes, leaving your skin feeling rejuvenated, soft bouncy, and fully moisturized.
Best Mask for Oily Skin
In contrast, peeps with oily skin should opt for masks similar to those with acne prone skin. You will need a mask that is able to unclog pores and may even hope to find something that provides some mattifying benefits as well. While clay masks are effective in unclogging pores, the famous Mario Badescu Mask Brand has one of the best skin clarifying masks specifically made for oily skin where it contains a unique combination of clay and calamine that is used to decongest pores and clear skin of build-up which are two main concerns for this category.
Best Anti-Aging Mask
For ones with signs of mature skin, you will probably want to search for a mask that provides your skin the needed hydration to stay youthful. This means your anti-aging face mask will need to acquire several key components in order make it to your top 3 mask selection. An anti-aging face mask should contain a blend of nourishing ingredients for more youthful skin, some active ingredients that promotes cell regeneration, blood circulation, reduce signs of wrinkles, and has skin firming and tightening properties. Oh, and not to forget it also needs to contain a healthy dose of antioxidants to protect skin against environmental free radicals and stressors.
