Last year I wrote about how to play up your eyes while you’re out and about wearing your mask. But while those masks have helped keep us safe, they’ve also clogged our pores and dehydrated our skin.
To get us ready for spring, I reviewed several facial masks that can help restore and protect our skin. Here are 3 of my cruelty-free faves!
Tatcha Violet Radiance Mask
This is a great mask for combination skin! Its creamy, hydrating Vitamin C leaves your skin glowing and radiant. And because it’s a cool violet color, you won’t miss a spot on your face.
Glossier Mask Duo
This product contains 2 masks for the perfect complexion: A totally refreshing Mega Green mask to deep cleanse and detox clogged pores, and a Moisturizing Moon mask with honey and aloe to deeply hydrate the dry areas of your face.
Olga Lorencin Ageless Facial in A Box
From the beauty queen herself! This easy-to-use overnight facial treatment for dry skin gently exfoliates and deeply hydrates your skin while you sleep.
Step 1 is a Brightening Cream Peel with Succinic Acid, which dissolves dead skin cell buildup for brighter skin; and Ferulic Acid, which is an anti-aging antioxidant. Allantoin and Arginine help replenish your skin’s natural moisture barrier and soothe irritation.
Step 2 is a Hydrating Sleep Mask which contains Snow Mushroom Extract, which is 400X as moisturizing as Sodium Hyaluronate. This mask gives you intensive hydration to plump your skin and soften the look of fine lines and wrinkles. These masks have natural plant oils including Plum Seed, Wild Cherry Bark and Black Currant Extracts, to give skin an incredible silky texture and glow.
And remember, there’s nothing like a great facial mask, a bubble bath, and a glass of champagne for an evening of self care!
