The Best Gel Face Masks to Add to Your Winter Skin-Care RoutineDecember 02, 2020
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 slide onto the skin with ease and promise a final result of a plumped, moisturized complexion after 15 to 20 minutes. Basking in these fast-acting facial 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.
Lancôme Advanced Genifique Hydrogel Melting Sheet Mask
This mask is soaked in bifidus extract that helps strengthen and protect the skin’s moisture barrier. It contains the same amount of formula you’d find in a 30ml bottle of the Advanced Genifique serum.
Vichy Quenching Mineral Mask
If you prefer scooping a mask straight out of a tub (as opposed to applying a sheet), try the Quenching Mineral Mask. This watery gel formula contains vitamin B3, glycerin and thermal water to hydrate dry, uncomfortable skin.
Kiehl’s Instant Renewal Concentrate
If you’re searching for an oil-infused cleansing mask, try the Instant Renewal Concentrate. The gel sheet contains a blend of cold-pressed Amazonian oils that work to replenish, hydrate and brighten the skin.
Tula Cooling & Brightening Hydrogel Face Mask
This hydrogel sheet has a mix of probiotics, citrus and papaya that helps to enhance skin’s natural glow.
Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask
ASMR skin-care lovers out there, this is the gel mask for you. The translucent green gel formula from Peter Thomas Roth helps soothe redness and detoxify dry skin. It’s suitable for all skin types, too.
