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 Soothing Moisture Mask ($36.95), 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 ($52), which is formulated with kaolin clay to combat oily skin.

Dry: Add moisture back to a parched complexion with a hydrating treatment, like Skinstitut Hydrating Mask ($31.50). You can also use an exfoliating mask that will dissolve away dry, dead skin cells, such as Antipodes Reincarnation Pure Facial Exfoliator ($42), which contains Avocado oil and jojoba beads 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.
