The best Facemasks for men: 10 products you need to try

There are plenty of facemasks for men out there, and if you’re not already using them, you’re missing out. The purpose of a facemask is to offer a deeper, more thorough clean than is achieved by most day to day cleansers and toners, unblocking pores and evening the complexion when used once or twice a week.

Face masks come with a variety of active ingredients. Absorbent materials such as (but not limited to) charcoal or clay, are common. Compared to chemical cleaning products, the cleansing process is typically far gentler with these masks. Dirt, sebum and other pollutants are taken up by the clay or charcoal as it sets into your face, and during this time any additional ingredients take their effect. When you peel or wash the mask off, the dirt is expelled with it, leaving your complexion brighter, and reducing the appearance of blemishes.

Moisturising face masks, either in the form of gel-saturated cloth masks or thick creams, are another common form of face mask. These deliver an intense dose of moisturising, anti-blemish, or anti-ageing ingredients, and contribute to brighter, healthier looking skin.

In either case they’re a fantastic addition to any skin care routine, and that’s why we’ve compiled this list of the best facemasks for men.
