These Brightening Face Masks Will Give You Next-Level GlowJanuary 09, 2020
The cold winter air and below-zero temperatures not only dry out our skin but can also leave it looking a little less than radiant. While our skin care this season has placed a major emphasis on keeping our face hydrated and moisturized, it’s equally as important to incorporate brightening, illuminating and glow-giving products, too. Whether you wake up and need an extra burst of brightness or just want to indulge in a healthy dose of self-care, test out our favorite brightening face masks, ahead.
Sheet masks are perfect for a quick pick-me-up, but sometimes getting them to stay in place is a struggle. Enter this Kiehl’s Instant Renewal Concentrate Mask. It has a top and bottom layer, so it adheres perfectly to the face and stays on — sans slippage — for the full recommended ten minutes. The bio-cellulose hydrogel mask is packed with Amazonian oils to smooth, soften and hydrate skin. Trust us, it’ll be your new winter skin savior.
Infused with rose water and meadow seed extract, this five-minute mask is the perfect pick if you’re looking to tighten pores, even out skin tone and achieve a rosy glow.
Treat yourself to some me-time with this Skin Inc pick. It’s illuminating, targets dullness and hyperpigmentation and is fragrance-, paraben-, phthalate- and sulfate-free. Apply the mask after cleansing, let it sit for ten minutes and enjoy the glow. It dries down nicely, too, so drippage is not a concern. If you’re in need of a skin reset, add this to your skin-care lineup.
With a peach jelly-like texture and BHA and enzyme-rich formula, this resurfacing mask is perfect for counteracting the havoc winter can wreak on your skin. Read: dullness, flakiness and roughness. It restores radiance, works to refine pores and gives a great luminesce post-use. We love using this mask once a week to keep our skin looking healthy and feeling radiant.
Don’t sleep on exfoliation this chilly season. To help slough away dead skin cells and restore your brightness, give this peel mask a go. It’s packed with AHA to chemically exfoliate upon application and volcanic rocks, which mechanically exfoliate. The peel-off texture is not only satisfying to remove, but it also leaves a smooth texture behind.
Using a detoxifying charcoal clay mask is a great way to revive your complexion. The clay-based formula works to clean out pores and remove daily grime. The result? Glowing and illuminated skin. After use, your face will feel clean, healthy and rebalanced. We love using this mask after a workout or a particularly exhausting day; it’s a nice refresh.
