Our Current Winter Face Mask Faves

When it comes to taking care of your skin, I’m sure you have a face mask (or several) that is your usual go-to. No matter your skin type, age or gender, it’s always a good idea to give your skin a little extra T.L.C. with a winter face mask. I mean, who wouldn’t love bringing the spa to their bathroom by indulging in a 20-30 minute face mask? All we have to say about that is count us in. Since the winter is well upon us and our skin is slacking (and seriously dry), we’ve done our research and tests at home to figure out what face masks deserve a spot on our current must-have beauty list. Check out our winter face mask faves and let us know what yours are too so we can try them out! Happy masking!

Peter Thomas Roth 24K Gold Mask, $80

I wonder if Bruno Mars’s 24K Magic song is in reference to this PTR mask… If it isn’t, it should be because this winter face mask is truly magic in a bottle for the skin. It literally contains 24K gold to help firm, lift, brighten and calm the appearance of skin. This PTR mask will definitely turn you into a glow-getter.

Dr. Jart+ Bright Lover Rubber Mask, $12

The look of this mask might be a little intimidating, but have no fear when it comes to applying it because the results are well worth it. This one by Dr. Jart+ is actually a two-step mask where you massage an ampoule serum onto the skin to nourish (step 1) and then you apply the rubber mask (step 2) and leave it on for up to 40 minutes. Vitamins A, B, C and E are a few of the ingredients in this mask that will help with dullness and uneven texture, dark spots and reduce the appearance of scars.

For those of us who are #blessed with large pores (not), this deep pore cleansing mask by Kiehl’s might be your new beauty fave. It contains Amazonian white clay, which helps purify and detoxify skin, removes bacteria, excess oil and dead cells that can clog skin and thus, creates enlarged pores. So long, pores!

Drunk Elephant T.L.C. Sukari Babyfacial Mask, $80

Drunk Elephant is a beauty brand that is underrated, IMO. This mask is an at-home facial that exfoliates the pore lining by getting rid of built-up dead skin cells with the help of these ingredients: glycolic, tartaric, lactic, citric, and salicylic acids. It is designed to brighten and improve the skin’s elastic feel and reveal the look of a more even, radiant, baby-soft complexion.

Glow Recipe Avocado Melt Sleeping Mask, $45

As if we didn’t already love everything avocado-related, Glow Recipe recently (and cleverly) came out with an overnight avocado face mask! This creamy formula contains avocado, honey and PHA to deeply moisturize dry, dull skin overnight. Wear this winter face mask to bed and your skin will be moisturized, firm and bright the next morning, all while leaving you saying, “I woke up like this.” #Flawless.
