There’s not much a good ole’ face mask can’t fix.
While some people have natural soft, clear skin thanks to genetics, most of us need a little help from skincare products to maintain that smooth complexion past adolescence. We promise those with pillow-soft skin aren’t hiding an entire glam team in their bathroom. But, they do have a few tricks up their sleeve to keep an airbrushed face: face masks.
A good-quality face mask packed with the right ingredients can work wonders on your skin and restore its youthful glow. We've rounded up our top picks for the best masks on the market that will leave your skin feeling silky-smooth and baby-soft.
1. Sand & Sky | Intense Hydrating Mask
This Intense Hydrating Mask quenches even the driest and flakiest skin instantly. With Fermented Sea Kelp to reinforce your skin barrier, which helps your skin maintain its moisture. It also contains Pentavitin and a Hyaluronic Acid complex to ensure deep and long-lasting hydration. If your skin is in need of an intense hydration pick-me-up, leave a thin layer on overnight (this baby works great as a sleeping mask!) and rinse off with warm water in the morning.
2. Sand & Sky | Super Bounce Hydration Mask
If you’re a fan of a mask that deeply hydrates, softens, and protects the skin, bask in the glow of the Super Bounce Mask. Packed with Vitamin C and antioxidants, using the rejuvenating formula to calm, smooth, and soothe is unparalleled.
This product helps regenerate the skin for greater cell production. An increase in cell production brightens your skin, essential for maintaining a bright, lit-from-within complexion.
3. Drunk Elephant | T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial
If you’re looking to address textured and bumpy skin, the T.L.C Sukari Babyfacial mask is a great place to start. Often caused by dead skin cell buildup, uneven skin can also be caused by environment and aging. The Babyfacial formula reveals a softer, more radiant complexion, improving the skin’s rough patches and elasticity. This peel-off mask is suitable for all skin types.
4. Tata Harper | Resurfacing Mask
This one’s another mask great for uneven texture, thanks to its key glow-giving ingredient, Tata’s beetroot extract. Because beets are high in vitamin C, their natural repairing properties help promote collagen production. The bright, sweet, bitter veggie naturally brightens your skin complexion, leaving a smooth velvet finish.
5. Laneige | Water Sleeping Mask
We love quick results, and this sleeping mask packs a punch. The multi-tasking product is an excellent option for long-lasting moisture, and works best after a full night’s use, topped off with your favourite serum and SPF in the morning. The mask does contain fragrance, so remember to be careful with it if you have sensitive skin!
6. GlamGlow | Supermud Treatment
This list wouldn't be complete without a charcoal mask. This magical, earthy ingredient is everywhere, including in GlamGlow's Supermud Treatment. Yes, it looks cool and makes for great #selfcare snaps, but charcoal is also an amazing magnet for grim, dirt, and oil clogged in your pores.
7. Origins | Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask
If you’re looking for a another option containing charcoal, we’ve got you covered. Origins Charcoal Mask harnesses the purifying power of natural bamboo charcoal, white China clay, and lecithin to detox your skin. Kiss clogged and enlarged pores goodbye!
8. Pixi Beauty | Glow Mud Mask
Loaded with calming and nourishing minerals, keep your skin baby soft with Pixi's Glow Mud Mask. If your pores need a serious detox, this skin-loving kaolin and sea salt mixture provides an energetic boost. Apply a thin layer to get rid of oil, grime, and impurities.
9. Sisley | Black Rose Cream Mask
The Black Rose Cream Mask plumps and brightens your skin, giving you a youthful glow with its anti-aging ingredients. Achieve softer, more supple skin by removing signs of fatigue, like fine lines or wrinkles. If you’re looking for a fuss-free mask, this one’s for you. Simply swipe it off with a cloth after use!
10. SK-II | Facial Treatment Mask
Ah yes, the sheet mask – the OG selfie mask. Aside from the fun photoshoot moment, SK-II Facial Treatment Mask brightens dull skin with its blends of vitamins, organic acids, and amino acids that stimulate skin rejuvenation.
The Bottom Line
Life is all about the little pleasures—like indulging in a face mask on a Self-Care Sunday. A symbol of relaxation and fun, face masks have the power to deliver higher concentrations of ingredients to balance the skin.
Give your skin the love it deserves. Whether it's gloopy, gel, or sheet style, the benefits of using these facial products are vast. With so many options, you're sure to discover one perfect for you.
