While everyone can benefit from using facial masks, it’s important to choose the right product for you. Read on to discover which mask is best for your skin type.

Facial masks: what is the best kind to use depending on your skin type?

There is a face mask out there for just about any kind of complexion. Unsure which one to try? Read on to find out which *facial mask* will suit your skin type.

Sheet/tissue masks: for hydrating dry skin
Does your skin feel dehydrated and in need of an instant *moisture boost*? If so, a *sheet or tissue mask* could be an excellent option for you. For example, the Garnier Hydrabomb Pomegranate Hydrating Tissue Mask acts as a hydrating wrap that diffuses a serum packed full of nutrients and beneficial ingredients during the 15-minute application time. Inspired by the Korean beauty craze, it provides your skin with lasting hydration for quenched, revived and more youthful-looking skin.

Mattifying and exfoliating masks: for oily or combination skin with imperfections
Fed up with constantly shiny skin and breakouts? A *mattifying mask* such as Garnier Pure Active 3-in-1 Charcoal Blackhead Mask Wash Scrub
reduces the look of shine and harnesses the power of activated charcoal in its formula to help draw out impurities, balance an *uneven complexion* and minimise the appearance of pores as it deeply cleanses and purifies them. A *peel off mask* (i.e. a liquid mask that pulls off like a strip) is another highly effective option to lift impurities from the skin. 

Antioxidant masks: for brightening normal skin
Even if you have no particular skin concerns, you can still improve your complexion with a mask. Antioxidants are effective in reviving, rejuvenating and counteracting environmental damage. They can help *brighten your complexion* and visibly reduce the appearance of fine lines for more youthful-looking skin. A great example is the *Fresh-Mix Tissue Masks* range, containing vitamin C or hyaluronic acid. They have one section with a hydrating formula and another section with an ultra-absorbent dry algae mesh. Once mixed, the mask forms a gel that fits the face to perfection for firmer, fresher looking skin.

A tissue mask to sooth sensitive skin
The fantastic thing about a product like the *Super-Hydrating Soothing Tissue Mask* is that it comforts and soothes sensitive skin while reducing the feeling of tightness. Among other ingredients, its formula incorporates hyaluronic acid – which is naturally produced by the body – and when it is concentrated on the surface of your skin as part of an expertly blended formula, it can reduce the appearance of wrinkles and make skin feel soothed, smooth and supple. 

No matter your concern, you can find a *facial mask* designed to improve your complexion. Simply assess your skin type, choose one of the *recommended face masks*, and start enjoying its benefits.
