Winter is the season for self-care. It’s cold out, the air is dry and the days are short. All we want to do is stay inside with a warm cup of tea, take a bath and indulge in a lengthy beauty routine. On self-care nights, masks are a must. We finally have the time, why not treat ourselves?
The thing with masks is that there are soooo many to choose from. It can sometimes be overwhelming to find the right one for your skin type and concerns. To simplify the process for you, we’ve listed 10 of our best-selling face masks. For each of them, we’re telling you what they do, who they’re good for and how you can benefit from them. Let’s discover them together!
HYDRATING FLORAL MASK
Tata Harper’s Hydrating Floral Mask is the perfect remedy for dry and dehydrated skin. In fact, this mask contains high levels of hyaluronic acid to recharge dry skin, replenish lost moisture and deliver thirst-quenching hydration. Not only that, but it smells amazing. The perfect addition to the self-care night in!
ULTRA PURIFYING CLAY MASK
Vivier’s Ultra Purifying Clay Mask is carefully crafted from red and white kaolin clay, alpha hydroxy acids and salicylic acid to draw out impurities, firm the skin and absorb excess sebum. This mask helps reveal flawless-looking skin without excess shine. If you have oily, acne-prone skin or are dealing with clogged pores, this may be the perfect mask for you.
The right amount of exfoliation is key to achieving a glowing complexion. In fact, an excess of dead skin cells can cause the skin to look dull. A once or twice a week exfoliating mask like the Micro-Peel Mask from Pro-Derm can be just what you need! Formulated with glycolic acid, this mask will help improve skin texture, reduce the appearance of pores and reveal a fresh, glowing complexion!
Every day, our skin is exposed to environmental toxins such as air pollution, smog, cigarette smoke, gas exhaust, among other things. This exposure can cause premature aging of the skin, acne, collagen breakdown, hyperpigmentation, and other skin conditions. For that reason, it’s important to find products that combat this damage. Environ’s Anti-Pollution Masque is formulated with Japanese charcoal and special botanicals to help absorb pollutant impurities. Your skin will feel revitalized and smooth after this treatment mask!
SUPREME MOISTURE MASK
NUORI’s highly concentrated, yet lightweight moisturizing mask is the ultimate treatment for dehydrated and distressed skin. Grape and Damask Rose waters combined with natural Hyaluronic Acid effectively restore moisture levels, while botanical Squalene and Betaine strengthen the skin’s barrier function. Anti-inflammatory chamomile extract reduces irritation and restore suppleness, while Vitamin B3 revives skin tone, improves elasticity, and prevents moisture loss.
ULTRA HYDRATING MASK
This is another great hydrating mask for dry or dehydrated skin. Vivier’s Ultra Hydrating Mask is formulated with an exclusive blend of rich vitamins and extracts. This luxurious mask helps plump the skin, diminish signs of fatigue and soften fine lines and wrinkles. Restore your skin’s natural radiance in only a few minutes!
Dealing with hyperpigmentation? Or in need of a skin boost? Sahajan’s Brightening Mask is formulated with 100% natural ingredients to increase skin’s radiance. With potent natural and amino acid rich ingredients to help balance, tone and nourish the skin and AHAs to gently exfoliate, that coveted dewy glow is yours for the taking! Suitable for all skin types.
In need of a good detox? This at-home Charcoal mask uses a blend of Japanese white charcoal, clay and the naturally-occurring mineral Magnesium Aluminum silicate to minimize the appearance of pores while absorbing excess dirt, oil and debris trapped deep in the pores. Perfect way to wash off the week and start fresh!
HYDRATING B5 MASK
A cult-favourite SkinCeuticals product for a reason! Enhanced with a unique complex containing constituents of the skin’s natural moisturizing factor (NMF), this weekly hydration treatment re-establishes the water balance critical for maintaining skin metabolic functions at optimal levels. An intensive, effective hydrating mask for every skin type!
CURTAIN CALL MASK
Brightening masks can sometimes be harsh on sensitive skin, due to their acid contents. If this is the case for you, try Pai Skincare’s Curtain Call Mask. This Rosehip fueled rescuer boosts tired skin leaving it radiant and dewy. In ten minutes your complexion is audience-ready. Formulated to glide on evenly and polish off easily with the enclosed Muslin Cloth, the buttery cream leaves skin soft and dewy.
