Most people consider face masks to be luxury items meant to be used only before special events or during spa treatments. However, this couldn't be further from the truth.
Masks are not only a great way to bring a little self-care into your daily routine, they can also help address many common skin concerns from acne to pigmentation, dehydration and more.
The ritual of using a mask can often lead to immediate and longer-lasting results than most other products can offer.
Our Favorite Reasons To Use A Mask
1. Lessen and control acne and hormonal flare-ups
If you're someone who's prone to acne, masking can help regulate sebum production, re-balance the skin and kill acne-causing bacteria.
Favorite Mask To Try: Cosmedix Clear Mask
We recommend this mask because it contains a combination of salicylic acid, sulfur and clay to clear pores, reduce inflammation and lessen the healing time of active breakouts without drying out the skin.
Warning: It smells faintly of rotten eggs, but we've endured worse for the sake of beauty.
2. Nourish & repair the skin barrier after a procedure or excessive sun exposure
If your skin is red, irritated or compromised, it may require a little TLC. A creamy hydrating mask is just what the esthetician ordered.
Favorite Mask To Try: Force Vitale Soothing Hydrating Mask
We love this mask from Swiss Line and use it in the treatment room as a massage medium. Like a comfort blanket for the skin, it contains a unique combination of botanical oils, Swiss alpine extracts, milk of iris and cucumber extract to nourish, soothe and repair the skin, while leaving it softer, brighter and more nourished.
We can't think of any reason not to include this mask in your skincare arsenal.
3. Exfoliate, energize and detoxify the skin
If your skin is looking dull, lifeless and less radiant than it should, perhaps it could use a little pep talk?
Favorite Mask To Try: La Fervance Gommage Extraordinaire
Gommage Extraordinaire is like that special friend that's always hyping you up and saying "you got this".
It will immediately uplift, energize and keep those glow vibes going strong with the inviting scent of Renaissance rose, fruit enzymes, red algae, Macademia seed and French quartz powder.
You need this mask in your life, just like you need your hype girl squad.
4. Treat dehydrated skin
For skin that lacks moisture, a plumping and hydrating sheet mask is the answer to your skin woes.
Favorite Mask To Try: Exquisite Dual Hydration Mask
This isn't your average sheet mask. Packed with hyaluronic acid, marine collagen, peptides and made of a special 3D bio-cellulose that mimics skin, Dual Hydration mask creates a super-smooth barrier that traps water and active ingredients in the skin, plumping and hydrating it to the max.
You can thank us later.
5. Smooth out texture, tighten pores, treat pigmentation and sun-damage
Let's face it! Sun spots are not your friends, they will betray you and give away your age faster than any wrinkle or pore.
But if there was a magic product that could eliminate those pesky dark spots, while also smoothing and tightening your skin, wouldn't that be amazing?
Favorite Mask To Try: Swissline Cell Shock White Brightening Aura Mask
Brightening Aura Mask is literally like a magic unicorn in a bottle. This iridescent pearly mask is packed with innovative brightening ingredients such as hexylresorcinol, gallic acid, glycolic acid and blueberry extract to exfoliate, brighten and tighten the skin.
Bonus: With its light reflecting pigments, this mask is fantastic under makeup and gives the skin an ethereal glow. Why be average when you can be fabulous?
6. Address sagging skin, wrinkles and lack of elasticity
Everyone can use a little lift. If gravity has taken hold of your face, you need a lifting mask that can improve sagging and increase elasticity.
Favorite Mask To Try: Cell Shock Lifting Replenishing Mask
This mask is another treatment room favorite. It activates upon contact with the skin and requires massaging.
With a special blend of peptides, antioxidants and skin tightening ingredients in the form of tiny beads that burst open when activated, it's like the best kind of push-up bra for your face.
7. Indulge in a little self-care in the comfort of your home, hotel room, etc.
So you want to look and feel like a goddess, but with minimum effort?
Favorite Mask To Try: La Fervance Eclat Extraordinaire
Oh la la! Let's talk about GLOW!
This gold-infused goddess mask is a workhorse because it doubles as a mask, moisturizer, makeup primer and body glow. But don't let its minimalism fool you. It will make your skin look alive and positively youthful.
A true French product for the minimalist beauties, but with a "je ne sais quoi" attitude.
Have You Tried Double-Masking Yet?
Whether you want a "red carpet glow" for a special event or an epic selfie, or maybe you're just an overachiever and want to level-up your masking game, "Double-Masking is your answer."
Double-Masking has many benefits and is a great way to reset your skin.
What is Double-Masking?
Shh… don't tell anyone. It's something that us estheticians have been doing for years in the treatment room.
Here's how to do it at home:
Use two masks, one right after the other. First one exfoliating, second one hydrating. That's it. You can even leave the hydrating mask on overnight. If your skin looks like a glazed donut, you've done it right! 🍩🙌🏻
