> Col­la­gen mask: Col­la­gen is the in­gre­di­ent in skin that keeps us look­ing youth­ful. It holds up the skin cells so skin looks plump and healthy.

The loss of col­la­gen is one of the signs of age­ing.

There­fore, col­la­gen masks usu­ally have anti-age­ing pur­poses. Col­la­gen masks may be in the form of cream or sheets.

> Gel mask: A gel mask is sim­i­lar to a peel-off mask. Liq­uid gel is ap­plied to the skin and al­lowed to set. It could also be used with with a sheet. A sheet is ap­plied to the face and the gel is ap­plied onto the sheet. Upon con­tact, the gel will liquify and then set into a jel­ly­like con­sis­tency. It is ei­ther peeled off (when used with a sheet) or washed off.

This type of mask is sooth­ing and suit­able for use to calm sun­burnt skin.

> Mud mask: This is some­times called a clay mask. This mask can dry up skin, so it’s suit­able for peo­ple with oily or com­bi­na­tion skin. A mud or clay is put on skin and left on for a spec­i­fied time. Af­ter that, it is washed off with water.

It will help to ab­sorb ex­cess im­pu­ri­ties and grease that is on the skin, close up open pores, re­move shini­ness and clear up blem­ishes.
