How to Choose the Right Peel-Off Facial Mask for Your Skin Type

BY Bridget Kadelbach · October 19, 2017

As you scroll through your Instagram feed at the end of the day, you’re bound to find a video of a friend peeling off some variation of a facial mask. While some look fun, others look downright terrifying. So, skip the old blackhead peels and pore strips that leave you teary-eyed and opt for an innovative, fun, peel-off facial mask. No matter what skin type or skin concern you may have, there are alternative solutions that don’t leave you wondering if your face is still intact. 

1. Hyperpigmentation and Sun Damage

Try: Hey Honey – Take It Off Exfoliating Honey Peel Off Mask

After a long, hot summer, your skin might be showing signs of a little too much time in the sun: think wrinkles, spots and uneven skin tone. For an ultra-satisfying, post-sun treatment, we love the Hey Honey Peel Off Mask. This mask contains lactic and glycolic acids that not only help exfoliate your skin but help with firmness for all of those unwanted wrinkles. When it comes to application, this mask is light, easy to use and certainly refreshing. 

2. Dull Skin, Free Radical Damage

Try: Neova – Serious Glypeel Peel Off Mask

No one wants anything to be dull in life, so why would we let our skin become dull? Great news is you don’t have to worry about dull, dead skin with the Neova peel-off facial mask. With only using it one to two times a week, this peel-off mask will make a visible difference to your skin. Containing a blend of refreshing ingredients such as chamomile, cucumber, aloe and rosemary make for a cleansing, satisfying peel.

3. Dry/Dehydrated Skin

Try: Erno Laszlo – Hydra-Therapy Skin Vitality Treatment

We’ve raved about Erno Laszlo before as an old Hollywood favorite we still love, and that goes for his hydra-therapy skin vitality treatment as well. The innovative two-step formula works to re-energize and re-hydrate your skin with a protective barrier leaving an invigorating, cooling sensation. We know time is precious, and with only 15–20 minutes of your time on an as-needed basis, this peel-off facial mask brings your skin back to life to feel like a whole new you.

4. Large Pores/Environmental Damage

Try: H2O+ Beauty – Aquadefense Refining Matcha Detox Mask

To keep our skin as healthy as can be, we should probably treat it the same just as we would internally, right? Fortunately, instead a daily routine, this refining detox mask only needs to be applied one to two times a week for optimal results. A few key ingredients such as matcha green tea extract, rice bean extract, antioxidants and witch hazel make for a perfect combination to shield your skin from environmental aggressors. This facial mask will leave your face looking smoother and softer, while minimizing the appearance of pores.

5. Aging Skin

Try: Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare – Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask

We have many anti-aging secrets and the Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask is just one of them. With many benefits of this deeply hydrated mask, one key benefit is the ability to diminish fine lines and wrinkles. Also note that this facial-peel mask takes a little bit of work to create, but once you apply it to your skin, you’ll have created your own facial masterpiece (too cheesy, huh?). However, unlike other masks, there is no need to rinse after peeling off the mask. Now that is refreshing!

6. Oily/Combination Skin

Try: Dr. Brandt – MAGNETIGHT Age-Defier™ Skin Recharging Magnet Mask

Looking for a fun peel-off facial mask for you and your girlfriends? We saved the best for last with this fun, magnetically charged mask. This iron-based formula is activated by magnetic particles that literally re-energize the skin. Extracting the pollution and dust deep within your skin, this magnetic pull leaves your skin extra smooth, less oily and reduces signs of aging. It’s like a science experiment on your face. But it’s okay, we know this one doesn’t end up in a mess.
