5 Face Masks Men Will LoveJanuary 19, 2021
Whether you’re in the process of creating a basic men’s skin-care routine or are looking to target a specific concern (think: rough, textured skin), a facial mask is a must. Hydrating sheet masks can help provide a smoother shave, clay masks can address large pores and detoxifying masks can reduce the appearance of blackheads. If you’re not sure which men’s facial mask is best for your skin type, keep reading. Here, we’re breaking down five of our favorites.
Garnier Skin Active Super Hydrating Face Mask
If you like a minimalistic skin-care routine, a sheet mask is the way to go. It’s mess-free and works in just a few minutes. This option from Garnier, which is packed with goji berry and hyaluronic acid, is a great go-to to combat winter dryness. It’ll leave even thick skin feeling softer and more hydrated after just one use.
L’Oréal Paris Pure Clay Mask Detox and Brighten
Acne-prone skin? This drugstore detoxifying face mask is for you. It’s formula, which features pure clays and charcoal, draws out impurities, oil and daily grime to prevent clogged pores which can lead to acne. We love applying this clay mask after a long day of wearing a protective face mask, too — your skin will feel and look refreshed in just ten minutes.
Kiehl’s Rare Earth Deep Pore Cleansing Mask
Elevate your evening skin-care routine with this clay mask, which is ideal for anyone who has oily skin or is hoping to target the appearance of large pores. Formulated with Amazonian white clay, the product works to slough away dead skin cells, control excess oil and refine rough skin texture. Just rinse off with warm water and your complexion will look matte and smoothed.
SkinCeuticals Phyto Corrective Face Mask
If you have sensitive skin, are experiencing irritation from a protective face mask or just need a little reset, reach for this botanical-based face mask. It has a cooling sensation when applied (feel free to store it in the fridge too!) and instantly comforts and calms skin once applied. It’s gentle, so you can use this product everyday.
Baxter of California Clay Mask AHA
Great for any skin type, especially mature skin, this anti-aging and exfoliating face mask works to improve signs of aging and even skin tone and texture. It can also help deep clean pores, reduce breakouts and refresh your complexion.
