Packed with healthy ingredients, these masks will keep your skin thriving and nourished all season long
Our skin can experience changes during the warmer months and it can vary from person to person. Whether you need a boost of hydration, are looking to prevent breakouts, or want to achieve a more radiant complexion, adding these face masks into your weekly regimen can deliver wonderful results.
From charcoal to gel-based to clay, we have gathered some of our favourites to help your skin look its very best this season...
1. Nourish Cleansing Gelée + Moisture Mask by Huna
Made with organic calendula, carrot and camellia, this gentle formula acts as a daily cleanser as well as a weekly facial treatment. To use it as a mask, spread it evenly across the face and leave on for 20 minutes. Once you add water, the gel will turn into a milky texture which you can then rinse off. Hypoallergenic and completely natural, this product is an excellent choice for those with sensitive skin that's prone to inflammation.
2. Rosé Resurfacing Facial Mask by Then I Met You
This Korean skin care brand’s rose-petal-infused mask features glycolic and lactic acids, as well as antioxidants, to deliver light exfoliation and a radiant complexion. It also works to improve texture and reduces the visibility of pores without harming the skin’s barrier. Apply a thin layer and leave it on for 15 minutes before rinsing. A tingling sensation can occur with acid treatments, and if you are new to chemical exfoliants, we always recommend doing a patch test before use.
3. Clarifying Clay Mask by Tatcha
Mineral-rich Japanese clay, konjac and volcanic ash come together in this hydrating and purifying mask by Tatcha that exfoliates dead skin, minimizes pores, and improves the skin’s clarity. Oh, and did we mention it changes colour from green to red so you know when it’s time to wash it off?
4. Jet Lag Mask by Summer Fridays
Think of this one like a tall glass of water, but for your skin. The Jet Lag Mask by Summer Fridays is calming, super-hydrating, and a perfect option for those who deal with redness, eczema and inflammation. It’s packed with niacinamide, which reduces the appearance of fine lines, as well as glycerin and hyaluronic acid, to give your face a long-lasting, healthy glow.
5. Super Hydrate Overnight Mask by Paula’s Choice
An overnight mask is a great choice because it does all the work for you while you’re deep in slumber. This award-winning creamy gel formula by Paula’s Choice features shea butter, algae, glycerin and reishi mushrooms—and it will have you waking up to dewy, plump and extra-soft skin. It’s safe for sensitive skin, and can also be used as a 20-minute mask during the day.
6. Instant Detox by Caudalie
Combat excess oil (which can lead to breakouts) and uneven texture with this Instant Detox Mask. It includes natural caffeine, sustainably sourced clay and antioxidants to enhance the skin’s complexion, as well as reduce impurities and pores. We also love that it’s lightweight, has a cooling sensation, and is recommended for acne-prone skin.
