Glowing summer skin in the dead of winter? Yes, it’s really possible! Though the cold season brings with it dry, flaky skin, it’s nothing you can’t combat with a little help from the nourishing face masks below. Adding a facial mask to your weekly beauty regimen will give your skin the boost it needs.
Below we’ve compiled our favourite products for treating yourself this winter.
Glow Recipe’s rich and creamy moisturizing face mask is everything your skin needs this winter season. Made with avocado and manuka honey — the former of which provides hydration and natural collagen, and the latter of which provides antioxidants — Glow Recipe’s Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask is for all skin types and specially targets dullness, dryness, and uneven skin texture. Even better, it is versatile. Spread a dime size amount onto your face right before bed and leave it on while you sleep, or use it as a wash-off mask by wearing it for ten minutes before rinsing.
Vegan, cruelty free, gluten free, and sold in recyclable packaging, Omorovicza’s Silver Skin Saviour is one of our favourite new products to hit the market. First off, this targeted mask is designed to combat dullness, uneven skin texture, and blemishes (January breakouts be gone!). How does it do this, you may ask? This facial mask contains three major ingredients: colloidal silver, niacinamide, and salicylic acid. Together, these ingredients brighten, exfoliate, and refine the skin. Plus, colloidal silver has antibacterial properties to help cure common skin ailments. Apply the mask to your face and neck and leave on for ten to fifteen minutes before rinsing with warm water.
With the Korean sheet mask trend taking off in 2018, it’s no surprise that La Mer decided to get in on the action. Described as a “super charged face mask,” this pack of six masks offers a major boost of hydration in just eight minutes, plumping and nourishing your skin. Each mask has a full ounce of La Mer’s patented Treatment Lotion, which works to fight dryness, fine lines, and even redness. Pop one on your face, sit back, relax, and let La Mer’s Treatment Lotion Hydrating Mask transform your skin from dull to dewy.
Eve Lom’s intensive Radiance Transforming Mask is the perfect face mask for winter. Unlike the other masks on this list, it must be left on for a full thirty minutes before being washed off. Alternatively, it can also be worn overnight, in which case it promises to provide up to seventy-two hours of hydration. Even better, when you massage the mask into your skin, it turns warm at your fingertips, becoming, according to the company, a “silk-like cushion” for your face.
Summer Fridays has quickly become a cult skincare brand among beauty bloggers and we can totally see why! The Overtime Mask is one of its most revered products, promising to get rid of dead skin cells, leaving behind smooth, clean, and luminous skin. Packed with vitamins, pumpkin, oat kernel proteins, and apricot seed powder, this unique formula works to brighten skin using natural exfoliants that won’t leave behind damage. Use twice a week (or more frequently when skin feels particularly dull in the wintertime), massage into the skin, and rinse off after ten minutes.
