Winter and its unpredictable weather don’t always play nice where skin is concerned, and sometimes it needs extra TLC to stay hydrated and youthful. We’ve rounded up our favourite essential sheet masks to fend off the elements.
The very first sheet mask from Clarins, Super Restorative Instant Lift Serum Mask ($150 for 5), packs a punch. Powered by about 30ml of serum, this mask delivers results. Developed for mature skin, the gel-serum texture lifts and firms while restoring radiance and diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles.
Multitasking Lancôme Génifique Hydrogel Melting Mask ($150 for 5) smooths, plumps and hydrates unhappy skin. With the same amount of Bifidus extract – touted as improving skin structure and forming a protective barrier – as an entire bottle of Advanced Génifique, skin is revived and nourished in just 30 minutes.
Ensuring your skin is strong and resilient before winter is the best way to keep your complexion glowing and healthy all season. Packed with a concentrated formula of hyaluronic acid and probiotics, Elizabeth Arden Superstart Probiotic Boost Skin Renewal Biocellulose Mask ($95 for 4) transforms lacklustre skin into a radiant, smooth complexion in one treatment. Harsh conditions can leave skin dehydrated and sapped of its usual glow.
Skinvitals Glow 2-Step Active Brightening Cloth Mask Treatment ($12.99) energises skin and restores luminosity. Powerhouse ingredients, including niacinamide (vitamin B3), liquorice and safflower bud, banish unwanted dark spots and enhance radiance for a more even, youthful skin tone.
If you suffer from sensitive skin, including a sheet mask that’s been formulated to calm and soothe in your beauty routine once or twice a week will help. With calming ingredients, including chamomile, hydrating hyaluronic acid and plant serums, the gentle yet effective Garnier Hydra Bomb Super Hydrating Soothing Mask ($4.99) keeps sensitive skin comfortable and nourished.
