The Best Gel Face Masks to Add to Your Winter Skin-Care Routine
Adding a little boost of hydration to your skin-care routine doesn’t get much better than applying a gel face mask. These pliable, jelly-like sheets or formulas slide onto the skin with ease and promise a final result of a plumped, moisturized complexion after 15 to 20 minutes. Basking in these gel masks is probably one of the better decisions you can make for your skin during the winter months, so we rounded up six of our favorites to help you get started.
For a hydrogel sheet mask that will give you a quick skin fix, try the Lancôme Advanced Genifique sheet mask. This mask is soaked in bifidus extract that helps strengthen and protect the skin’s moisture barrier, and it contains the same amount of formula you’d find in a 30ml Advanced Genifique serum bottle.
If you prefer applying a mask straight out of a tub (as opposed to applying a sheet), try the Quenching Mineral Mask by Vichy. This watery gel formula contains vitamin B3, glycerin and thermal water, which is even soothing enough to apply on sensitive skin.
If you prefer a gel sheet mask with a sweet spin, try the Watermelon Sheet Mask by Glow Recipe. This hydrating and soothing mask contains watermelon, hyaluronic acid and centella asiatica to leave your skin feeling plump, hydrated and fresh.
Another sweet gel mask option is the Tula Cooling & Brightening Hydrogel Face Mask. This hydrogel sheet has a mix of probiotics, citrus and papaya that helps to enhance your skin’s natural glow.
ASMR skin-care lovers out there — this is the gel mask for you. This translucent green gel formula from Peter Thomas Roth helps soothe redness and detoxify dry skin. It’s suitable for all skin types and very well could be your new favorite jelly skin-care treat.
If you’re searching for an oil-infused cleansing mask, try the Instant Renewal Concentrate. This gel sheet mask contains a blend of cold-pressed Amazonian oils that work to replenish, hydrate and brighten the skin.
