In terms of finding the right face mask for your skin, it’s important to consider your skin type as well as the skin concern you’re looking to address. “Face masks can range in use from hydrating to purifying, and can include a wide variety of ingredients aimed at unique skin problems,” explains plastic surgery physician assistant Courtney Brown.
“Those with sensitive skin or rosacea will want to pick a mask that has minimal active ingredients because these may cause further irritation and dryness. Masks that include aloe, chamomile, or squalene [like Kiehl’s Calendula Petal-Infused Calming Mask] are more suitable for this skin type. However, individuals with oily, acne-prone skin will benefit from the exfoliating properties of salicylic acid and may want a more aggressive face mask to unclog pores and remove excess bacteria on the skin. [Kate Somerville Exfolikate Intensive Pore Exfoliating Treatment is ideal for acne-prone skin],” adds Brown. The bottom line: Be sure you’re using a mask that’s safe for your skin type and won’t ultimately irritate, clog, or harm it.
