16 Face Masks Perfect for Your Skin Type


For Acne: Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque

Whenever breakouts start to surface, grab for this Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque ($40, peterthomasroth.com). It uses purifying Kaolin to zap zits and aloe to soothe skin. The smell of eucalyptus will make you feel like you’re getting the true spa treatment. 
Want a quicker fix? Try their Therapeutic Sulfur Masque ($40, sephora.com), which has even more sulfur (10%), so you only need to have it on for 10 minutes.

For Acne: Bliss No ‘Zit’ Sherlock

This is, by far, the most entertaining face mask ($38, blissworld.com) you can use for oily skin. You mix the powder with a little water, spread it onto your face, and wait for it to dry. The real fun comes when it dries and takes on a rubbery texture. Then, you get to peel it off. The best part, of course, it that it works. Detoxifying seaweed clears your skin of blemishes and prevents future breakouts.

For Acne: Repéchage Hydra Refine One-Minute Clarifying Mask

Acne doesn’t stand a chance against this clarifying mask ($32, repechage.com). It deep cleans by exfoliating with tiny spheres of rice bran wax and lactic acid, and it controls oil without leaving skin dry and uncomfortable.

For Acne: DIY Mask

Brooke Wilensky of Union Square Laser Dermatology recommends using baking soda for at home microdermabrasion. Mix three tablespoons of baking soda with one tablespoon of water until it forms a thin paste. Apply in a circular motion onto your face, let it sit for five minutes, and then rinse with warm water.

For Dry Skin: Koh Gen Do Oriental Plants Deep Moisture Mask

For Dry Skin: DIY Mask

When it comes to making your own mask for dry skin, Wilensky recommends the use of bananas and honey. Warm one teaspoon of honey in the microwave, and then mix it with half a banana. Spread it on your face, leave it on for 15 minutes, then rinse off.

For Dull Skin: Decléor Aroma White C Plus Intensive Brightening Mask

This Decléor mask ($52, skinstore.com) comes in a ready-to-use sheet. Unfold it, and place it on your face for 10 minutes. Once you take it off, you’ll feel the excess serum lingering. Instead of washing off, massage it into your skin for a brighter tomorrow.

For Dull Skin: REN Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask

If skin is looking dull, it could be because of dead skin that isn’t shedding. REN’s Radiance Renewal Mask ($55, renskincare.com) removes dead skin cells so the brighter skin underneath can shine through.
