Who doesn’t want to be like Chris Pratt? While we can’t all play superheroes or follow his workout regime, there is one easy thing we can copy from the most likable man in the world: face masks. And he’s not the only superstar in on the self-care grooming trend. Any why shouldn’t they be? Face masks are a key step in caring for your skin.
In case Pratt didn’t make it obvious, face masks aren’t just for the ladies — they’re for everyone. The best face masks for men can really step up your skincare game. So, if you don’t currently have a face mask in your grooming routine, it’s definitely time to add one. These treatments come in all shapes and sizes, allowing you to target your skin’s specific issues, from a lack of moisture to wrinkles.
However, it’s important to note that men’s skin is different from women’s. Higher levels of testosterone generally lead to thicker skin, which is tougher and more acne-prone. You’ll also find that some sheet masks come in two individual pieces for men who sport facial hair. Give one of the 16 best face masks for men a try.
1. HETIME Revitalizing & Hydrating Mask
We recently talked to the founders of HETIME, and we’re big fans of this brand’s face masks, which were designed specifically with men in mind. Dull, lackluster skin and breakouts will be a thing of the past after using this mega mask. It contains moringa, cedarwood and baobab to shrink breakouts, moisturize and help you look wide awake. It’s good for the planet too, since it’s made from biodegradable cellulose fiber.
2. Bandito by Masque Bar Get Lucky – Chill a Minute…
It’s hard to say which we like more — the actual sheet mask or the fact that it comes with a mustache printed on it for some flair. The k-beauty staple packs a punch with raspberry, lemon extract, and vitamin E to hydrate, minimize the appearance of pores and leave you with an even, bright complexion.
3. JAXON LANE BRO MASK Facial Sheet Mask
BEST FOR ALL SKIN TYPES
No matter what type of skin you have, the JAXON LANE BRO MASK Facial Sheet Mask will deliver a hydrating and cleansing treatment.

11. SHILLS Charcoal Black Mask
Aside from the fact that this stand out mask has only received five-star reviews from Amazon users, the SHILLS Charcoal Black Mask should be your pick if you love to see the difference a mask can make. And we mean SEE the difference. That’s because charcoal masks are black and draw out the imperfections in your skin, so these white build-ups are clear to see when the mask is peeled away.

In addition, this mask can be used multiple times a week, making it a great addition to your skin care routine.

You’ll also find the mask deeply cleanses the skin and leaves pores free of clogs.
13. RUGGED & DAPPER Detox and Acne Face Mask
The RUGGED & DAPPER Detox and Acne Face Mask is an ideal choice for men who struggle with inflammation after shaving or acne breakouts.
