5 Face Masks & Skin Boosters You Can Wear All Day Long
All-day face masking is exactly what it sounds like: a face mask session that lasts for hours and hours. Instead of rinsing off the formula after a period of time (anywhere between five-15 minutes), you keep it on your complexion and allow it to fully absorb. The idea is pretty simple; the longer a mask can sit on your skin, often the better the results. The beauty of this technique is that no one will know you’re wearing a face mask in the first place. Once fully absorbed, you can go ahead and layer on additional skin care products or even makeup. Ahead, our favorite face masks and skin boosters—from the L’Oréal portfolio of brands—to keep on all day.
SKINCEUTICALS HYDRATING B5 MASQUE
Dry skin is one of the most common skin complaints during the winter. To flood your skin with moisture, reach for a mask with hyaluronic acid, an ingredient which can hold up to 1000x its weight in water. Formulated with vitamin B5 and hyaluronic acid, SkinCeuticals Hydrating B5 Masque can boost your skin’s hydration levels in no time. Ideal for all skin types, this weekly hydration treatment can replenish the skin’s water balance for skin that feels supple and smooth. The mask can be left on for about 10 to 15 minutes. Afterwards, gently massage the remaining product into your skin for a dewy complexion.

KIEHL’S CILANTRO & ORANGE EXTRACT POLLUTANT DEFENDING MASQUE
Kiehl’s Cilantro & Orange Extract Pollutant Defending Masque, although typically applied at night, can serve as a protective barrier against environmental aggressors all day long. Formulated with cilantro and orange extract, this masque has the ability to visibly reduce the negative effects of external aggressors while defending it against further damage.
VICHY MINERAL 89
Also formulated with hyaluronic acid, Vichy Mineral 89 is a beauty-boosting serum suitable across all skin types (sensitive included). What sets it apart from other serums, however, is the combination of hyaluronic acid with Vichy’s signature Mineralizing Thermal Water. Infused with 15 rare minerals including calcium and manganese, Mineralizing Thermal Water can help fortify, rebalance, and moisturize the skin. It’s the perfect skin booster that can even be tossed into a carry-on bag or purse for use while on the go.
