Seasonal changes can take a toll on our skin. As we transition from cold to warmer weather, it’s important to take extra care of your skin and give it the TLC it needs.
What’s one way to do this? The answer lies in a face mask. Before spring arrives, start incorporating a face mask into your skin care routine to help get rid of dull-looking skin or an uneven complexion.
From sheet masks and hydrogel masks to sleeping masks and clay masks, there are plenty of Korean face masks to choose from! Are you ready to start prepping your skin for spring? Here are 10 face mask recommendations best suited for dry, oily, combination, acne-prone, sensitive and mature skin:
Face Masks for Dry Skin
Winter can make dry skin even more dry and dull-looking. If you want to enter the new season with a healthier-looking and glowing complexion, then Dear, Klairs’ Youthful Glow Sugar Mask is worth the try. Formulated with rich antioxidants such as grapefruit extract and raspberry seed oil, this sugar mask nourishes and brightens the skin.
Apply a moderate amount of the Youthful Glow Sugar Mask on your face after cleansing. Leave the mask on for 10 minutes before rinsing it off with lukewarm water. Since the mask offers mild exfoliation, you can also gently massage it all over your skin prior to washing it off to buff away any dead skin cells or dry patches.
Face Masks for Oily or Combination Skin
If you have an oily complexion, then you know what I mean by midday shine. Since oily and even combination skin produce more oil, you should look for one main ingredient in a face mask that helps control this: clay. Clay, such as kaolin or bentonite clay, gets rid of excess sebum and tightens your pores.
The ACSEN Pore Control Mask from Korean skin care brand TROIAREUKE is formulated with kaolin clay to absorb excess sebum and improve enlarged pores. The mask also improves skin texture and keeps your complexion hydrated, and can be used if you have sensitive or acne-prone skin, too.
Face Masks for Acne-Prone Skin
Similar to oily skin, acne-prone skin requires face masks that control excess sebum. If you want to minimize your blemishes and enter spring with blemish-free skin, it’s important to clear your pores of any impurities that may cause inflammation and irritations.
Acne-prone skin types will love Dr. Ceuracle’s Jeju Matcha Clay Pack. The Jeju matcha purifies skin and controls excess oil while the kaolin clay soothes and protects the skin from external aggressors. This mask is a skin care must-have if you wish to prevent breakouts during your winter-to-spring transition.
Face Masks for Sensitive Skin
Changing weather can be hard on your skin especially if you have sensitive skin or a damaged skin barrier, making you more prone to skin flare-ups. Incorporate a face mask into your skin care routine at least once a week to keep your skin calm during this transition.
SIORIS is a Korean green beauty brand that follows a “Fresh, safe and honest” philosophy. All of the brand’s products are formulated with organic ingredients and are cruelty-free, making them a great choice for sensitive skin types.

Face Masks for Mature Skin
The key to maintaining youthful-looking skin is to keep your skin hydrated and healthy. The perfect face mask that helps keep those fine lines and wrinkles at bay is Beauty of Joseon’s Revitalize Sleeping Mask. This mask is perfect for you if you prefer face masks that you don’t have to wash off.
