5 Face Masks for Every Skin TypeAlli McGinnis
Face masks can treat our delicate skin in many different ways, from hydrating, cleansing and brightening to exfoliating and treating problem skin. I have narrowed down my top 5 face masks from the below categories.

Hydrating masks hydrate the skin with proteins, vitamins and minerals to instantly nourish stressed, dry skin.
Cleansing masks detox pores, purge out toxins, and leave your complexion fresh and pure.
Brightening masks brighten with such ingredients as rose and green tea. The gel formula cools and hydrates at the same time.
Exfoliating masks reduce fine lines and improve the tone, firmness and radiance of the skin.
Treatment masks are best for problem skin. Ingredients such as sulfur and zinc oxide calm blemishes, soak up extra oil, and sweep away dead skin cells.

Which mask is best for your skin?
Korres Greek Yoghurt Sleeping Facial 2 of 6
This hydrating mask has two times the amount of protein than regular yogurt, leaving skin intensely nourished, smooth and hydrated. I recently traveled to South America and slept in this mask as a nightly cream for two weeks. It saved my dry skin from the extremely dry climate and high altitude.
Get it at Sephora $45
100% Pure Purifying Seaweed Facial Mask 3 of 6
This purifying mask is like a cleanse for your face. Whenever my skin starts to act up, I give myself a detox facial, and within days my dull cranky skin starts to look cleaner, healthier and more radiant.

Fresh Rose Face Mask 4 of 6
Not only does this rose mask smell like you're walking through a rose garden, but it magically brightens your skin in 10 minutes flat. I have friends from London that buy this by the case when they visit the states. I have to say it's probably my favorite mask out of the bunch. It's a steeper price point at $55, but the 3.3 oz last me at least 6 months.

Ren Glycol Lactic Radiance Mask 5 of 6
This glycolic mask safely resurfaces the skin without irritation. It uses a four-fruit-acid-complex (lactic, glycolic, tartaric and citric) to gently exfoliate, leaving the skin radiant, smooth and healthy. I often used to get peels done at my dermatologist's office, but when I discovered this mask, I found myself not needing to go. My skin was brighter, smoother and more radiant overnight without the intense chemical peels the doctors would use. I call it derm in a bottle!
