How to use face masks for every skin type

Though the appearance of a face mask might be frightful, it's time to get over your fear. This skincare product has the power to completely transform skin by addressing any problem areas - whether you're battling wrinkles, dryness, redness or breakouts. If you've ever considered using one, you know that there are a multitude of options to choose from. Face masks are not one size fits all, and though the wide variety can be overwhelming, there is an optimal mask suited to your unique skin type. As long as you follow this guide to finding the right formula and using the proper technique, you'll reap the benefits instantly.

Oily skin
If your complexion is especially shiny, the right deep-cleansing mask can help to absorb excess oil and restore balance. La Thérapie's Dermasque Purifiant Purifying Mask is ideal for this skin type, as this triple-threat acts as a cleanser, toner and exfoliator in one. Formulated with peppermint, milk protein, nettle and camphor, it's also gentle enough that it won't contribute to any flare-ups but powerful enough to soak up unwanted greasiness. Use it up to three times a week, but no more than that, to avoid dryness. Dr. Diane Berson, assistant clinical professor of dermatology at Weill Medical College, told Oprah magazine that twice a week is sufficient unless you're battling high temperatures or humidity during the summer.

Dull skin
If your face is looking drab or tired, a reinvigorating mask can help to perk your complexion right up. Consider Elemis' Fruit Active Rejuvenating Mask, which is chock full of energizing fruit extracts to help you get your glow back. Ultra-hydrating shea butter and macadamia seed oil nourish the skin during the dry winter months.

Acne-prone skin
When you've tried everything to combat pesky breakouts without success, a potent mask might be the key to a clear complexion. Bliss Steep Clean Pore Purifying Mask can slough off dead skin and dirt, thus preventing it from clogging your pores. In the process, the product helps to shrink pores and restore radiance that's been covered up by blemishes.

Aging skin
Whether you're dealing with fine lines or more severe wrinkles, Laboratoire Remède Alchemy Line Minimizing Mask can help to reverse damage and the signs of aging. The result is a revitalized, luminous complexion that looks years younger. This formula is also infused with green tea, which contains antioxidants that can reduce any inflammation while helping to protect your skin against free radicals.
