If the seasonal shift (translation: searing heat) has been taking its toll on your skin, leaving you dry and dull, you might want to add a little boost to your skincare routine with a mask. No, they’re not just for sleepovers and special occasions, because integrating a mask into your routine can give your skin the extra moisture and treatments that it needs to look its best. And no matter what type of skin you have, there’s something for everyone. We had a chat with Los Angeles-based dermatologist Dr. Murad, whose line has great options that range from clarifying to resurfacing and even radiance-boosting, about adding this skincare extra to your routine.

“Masks and peels are often overlooked as part of an at-home regimen,” said Howard Murad, MD, founder and CEO of Murad. “However, just as daily brushing of the teeth is important to oral hygiene in between dentist appointments, weekly at-home masks are essential to skin health in between regular visits to your esthetician.”

Murad Acne Clarifying Mask

Concern: Acne, skin clarity

So while you might not have time to visit Dr. Murad inside his Inclusive Health Spa, you can take his treatments home with you. If your problem skin includes acne and out of control oil, try the Murad Acne Clarifying Mask. It’s packed with zinc oxide and licorice root extract to sooth your skin while clay and sulfur deep clean and reduce acne. Try it once or twice a week and you might just find that your skin’s less oily and a little more comfortable and clear.

But don’t think that masks are a one-time thing. Just like most skincare, it takes time and consistency to see real results.

Murad Age Reform Intensive Peel

Concern: Skin texture, anti-aging

And if you’re more concerned with getting your skin smooth and even, try the Murad Age Reform Intensive Resurfacing Peel. Sometimes, you can look dull because you’ve got a buildup of dry, dead skin or clogged pores. This peel’s combination of glycolic and salicylic acids resurface and refine the skin, leaving you with brighter, smoother skin with continued use. The peel also includes bamboo beads, which will give you a mini microderm abrasion right at home after the acids work to dissolve your dead skin. And while we’re not promising dermatologist-level results with just one use, after getting through the four ampules, your skin’s sure to be transformed for the better.

Murad Intensive-C Environmental Shield Radiance Peel

Concern: radiance, clarity and brightness

And while you might not be dealing with any specific skin issues, everyone can use a little more radiance and clarity.

Dull skin can come from a lot of different factors, but you can get brighter, more radiant skin with Intensive-C Radiance Peel’s combination of vitamin C and Indian fig, which promote skin clarity and protect against free radical damage. This is another acid peel, but it’s also got myrtle extract to promote skin’s resilience and elasticity. It also works to undo environmental damage while it protects your skin from new stressors, so add this a few times a week and you’ll face summertime with a fresh new outlook.
