3 Types of Face Masks Explained

Here at 3LAB, we love a good face mask. Why? Because there’s a type of face mask for every skin type and concern. Plus, they’re a fun way to relax and recharge while you take care of your skin. But with all the types of face masks on the market, how do you know which one is right for you? Keep reading for our guide to our favorite types of face masks.


Clay Mask

Best For: Normal to Oily Skin

Clay face masks are an excellent choice for normal to oily or acne-prone skin because they absorb excess oil while detoxifying the skin and reducing redness.

Tip: never let a clay mask dry fully on your skin. Either wash off the clay mask before it dries completely, or use a refreshing spray to keep the mask moist while it works its magic.


Sheet Mask

Best For: All Skin Types

A sheet mask is made of fabric or paper soaked with concentrated serum that delivers large amounts of active ingredients into your skin. The biggest benefit of sheet masks is that they can seriously hydrate parched skin in a short amount of time. Thus, they’re perfect any time your skin needs a little pick-me-up.

When you’re finished with your sheet mask, don’t rinse your face. Instead, rub the excess serum into your skin, then apply your favorite moisturizer to maximize the sheet mask’s benefits.


Leave-On Mask

Best For: All Skin Types, Especially Dry or Aging

Also known as a sleeping pack, a leave-on mask is the latest trend in face masks. Leave-on masks are meant to be worn overnight while you sleep, which gives the ingredients more time to work so you wake up with refreshed, luminous skin.

Our new 3LAB Anti-Aging Mask is a leave-on treatment that gives new meaning to the phrase “beauty sleep”. Simply apply in the evening on top of or in place of your usual nighttime moisturizer. Then our cutting edge ingredients and powerful botanicals work in synergy to rejuvenate, brighten, soothe, and moisturize your skin while you sleep. As a result, you’ll wake up with more radiant, firm, and youthful-looking skin!
