As my best friend Christina can attest to, I am a mask junkie. In fact, during a recent trip home to LA and during my stay with her, she saw me use at least a dozen masks over the course of a week. What can I say…travel wreaks havoc on your skin!
After coming to the realization that I am a mask junkie, I decided to share the masks that are in my current rotation and have become staples in my routine.
Summer Fridays Overtime Mask – Soothing oat kernel proteins and free radical-fighting antioxidants make this brightening mask the ultimate glow-getter. Perfect for dull or congested skin, this formula uses mild exfoliants that won’t damage your skin’s surface (unlike some synthetic abrasives). Besides its glowing results, the experience is a major hygge moment as the aroma of a freshly baked pumpkin pie wafts under your nose.
Borghese Fargo Active Mud – I am on my third tube of this mask and have been using it for as long as I can remember to decongest my skin. Borghese Fango Mud for Face and Body is an exclusive mineral-enriched mud mask that is sourced from Tuscany’s volcanic hills. The mask gives devitalized, over-tense skin a new surge of vitality with clear, youthful radiance. Special absorbing action unclogs pores, eliminates dead skin cells and detoxifies impurities, energizes and nourishes skin cells, leaving skin comfortably hydrated, firmer and invigorated.
Avène Soothing Moisture Mask – Boost your skin’s hydration levels with the Avene Soothing Moisture Mask, a pampering formula for dry and sensitive skin types. The Avene Soothing Moisture Mask nourishes and protects your complexion with its intensive bath of moisture. Infused with a high concentration of Avene’s famous thermal spring water, the Soothing Moisture Mask is a quick “pick me up” for when skin looks dull and tired. Rich and creamy in its texture, the soothing formula helps to restore suppleness and hydration, whilst Triglycerides nourish dehydrated skin and helps to balance the hydrolipidic barrier.
Oribe Gold Envy Luminous Face Mask – All that glitters goes into this gold-infused moisturizing and brightening mask. Peptides deliver real gold particles to immediately impart an ethereal glow while soothing and hydrating ingredients further enhance the appearance of healthy, youthful skin.
Algenist Alive Mask – This color-morphing mask is formulated with a prebiotic from algae + a probiotic to target concerns that may result from unbalanced surface skin bacteria. On application, it transforms from mint green to pink and re-balances, detoxifies, and leaves skin feeling alive and hydrated. Also paired with patented Alguronic Acid, naturally-sourced and sustainably produced from Algae, this mask helps to hydrate the skin for an even, clarified, and radiant look and leaves skin more resistant to pollution and the appearance of lifestyle aging.
