The Mask You Should Use Depending on Your Skin Type
If there’s an indulgence we never feel guilty about, it’s face masks. They’re the perfect supplement to our everyday routines and a quick fix for problem areas. Whether you’re suffering from a surprise breakout or painfully dry skin, the right mask speeds up healing with next to no effort.
But there is no one-size-fits-all mask, so to speak. What you need is a formula designed especially for your skin type. In this regard, it helps to get expert advice—and who better to consult than the mask masters themselves? This week, we asked our friends at Origins to recommend the best mask for every skin type. Get their full breakdown, below!
YOUR MATCH: Out Of Trouble Mask
As the name suggests, this mask rescues your skin from bad zit-uations. It treats all types of acne with salicylic acid and soothes redness and irritation with camphor. You can apply it directly over a spot or spread it over your entire face. Just wait 10 minutes and bam—results!

YOUR MATCH: Clear Improvement Mask
This detoxifying mask gets straight to the root of things. The bamboo charcoal in it draws out bacteria, while the white China clay content absorbs shine. The happy bonus? It has a refreshing, tingling sensation as soon as you apply it.

YOUR MATCH: Original Skin Mask
Glow big-time with this two-in-one mask! Made with Mediterranean rose clay, it thoroughly cleanses your face while soothing your mind with a beautiful scent. When you rinse it off, the jojoba beads in the mask buff away dead skin cells and dried-up sebum. It’s this gritty yet gentle consistency that ultimately improves your complexion.

YOUR MATCH: Drink Up 10-Minute Mask Pod
Out of the tube, this mask could be mistaken for moisturizer—and you wouldn’t be totally wrong. Parched skin drinks this stuff up. Despite its dense consistency, this mask absorbs within 10 minutes. The mango butter in it deeply hydrates skin, while powerful apricot kernel oil quells breakouts.
