Tags:

Clay. Sheet. Charcoal. Peel-off. These days, face masks are a dime a dozen. With each one seemingly promising to either hydrate your skin, smooth your wrinkles, or even out your skin tone (or some combination of the three), it can feel pretty daunting trying to pick one from the bunch. You could while the hours away examining the packages for subtle differences that might set them apart — or, you could have a little fun by throwing caution to the wind and selecting the one for you that’s written in the stars! Read on for the best face mask for your zodiac sign

Face Mask Benefits for Your Skin 

According to a 2018 study in the Journal of Cosmetic Dermatology, face masks were shown to have “some advantages for specific skin types based on the ingredients used.” 

For the most part, however, Tyler Hollmig, MD, and director of Aesthetic and Laser Dermatology at Stanford Health Care, told NBC that these little gems are best used for extra moisture. They trap in water that would normally evaporate into the air, making them the perfect pick-me-ups for dull, dry, winter skin. “Even if you were to just put a mask on top of the skin with nothing in it, it would naturally moisturize the skin,” he told the publication. 

How often should you use face masks? 

When it comes to how often you should be using a face mask, the verdict is still out. Skin care experts, like the gurus at Bioelements, suggest using masks one to three times per week depending on your personal preference. 

According to Allure, though, some people in Korea utilize face masks as often as two times per day! Washington D.C. skincare expert Elizabeth Tanzi, founder and director of Capital Laser & Skin Care, told the publication: “It’s fine to use a sheet mask every day as long as it’s not a glycolic acid-containing sheet mask.” (Glycolic acid can irritate skin when used daily.)
