Dermatologists Say These Are the Best Face Masks for Every Skin Type

Sensitive, dry, combination, oily, normal… so go the five different skin types most of us have become accustomed to when adventuring into the realm of skincare. Of course, there's so much more to the needs of our complexions than stiffly falling into one of five adjectives. After all, our skin changes depending on what time of day it is, where we are in our cycle, where we've landed on vacation, what season it is, and so on and so forth. That being said, with how saturated the skincare industry is, blindly navigating the millions of products promising to transform our skin can be equally complex, and having a basic sense of our skin's temperament (even if it's confined to five options) can be convenient, especially if you're on the hunt for a great face mask.

"In general, we categorize skin types as being normal, dry, oily, combination, and sensitive to make it easier to find products that suit the needs of our skin," confirmes Lena Metcalfe, PA-C, of Facile Dermatology + Boutique. "That being said, like all of life, it's not always that simple. When shopping for face masks and skincare products, it's important to learn to really listen to your skin and experiment to see which products and ingredients work best and which do not agree with your skin."

Of course, estheticians and dermatologists work with countless complexions and skincare products on a daily basis, which gives them an accurate idea of what kinds of things will work for what kinds of skin. It's their job, after all! So to lend us a helping hand in determining the best face masks for each and every skin type, I reached out to three different experts to offer their esteemed know-how.
