Masks That Will Keep Your Face Hydrated
The new year is here! After all that alcohol consumption, partying and cold winds, if you had to brave the sub-freezing weather outside, then your face is in need of a pick-me-up.
Not only is my face chapped from the wind and sun underneath the gloomy clouds, but it is also dry from the unhealthier things I have consumed and I wanted something extra — not just a 2-minute mask, but something that would really make me feel a difference after I used it.
Below are face masks that will leave your face rejuvenated, and you will actually feel a difference right after. It is good to invest in a face mask that you can go to time after time whenever your face needs that boost.
Kiehl’s Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Masque leaves your dry, distressed skin feeling revitalized and supple. The consistency is a thick gel (because of the aloe vera it contains) and has handpicked calendula flowers in it, which give it a nice, refreshing scent. You apply this mask and leave it on for 5 minutes — not much longer is needed. When you wash off the mask, make sure you rub your face in a circular motion so that your skin can absorb its nutrients.
First Aid Beauty’s Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask is a great mask that leaves your tight skin looking plump and very hydrated. This mask includes two different types of oats along with botanical antioxidant hydrating ingredients. It is also free of sulfates and synthetic fragrances, so you can feel good about putting only natural ingredients on your face. You can really feel the ingredients seeping into your skin. Leave this mask on for 10 minutes then just rinse off. You will notice any redness in your skin has calmed down and any scaly skin is filled in and left feeling extremely smooth.
Laneige’s Water Sleeping Mask is meant to be worn overnight and rinsed off in the morning. The mask absorbs while you sleep to leave your face wrinkle-free by morning by deeply hydrating your face deep down into its pores with a gel-like feel to it. What makes this mask unique is that it is made with hydro ionized mineral water. Ionized water is known to be up to six times more hydrating then regular water due to the shape of the water molecule, which is smaller making it easier to be absorbed through your pores. This mask also uses Sleep-Tox, which is a technology that purifies your skin with Hunza apricot and evening primrose to heal and brighten your fatigued skin.
