There’s nothing like winter to suck the hydration out of your skin. With the cold air outside and heat inside our skin doesn’t stand a chance of retaining that lovely summer glow. Instead, you may find your skin looking dull, lifeless and feeling dry, itchy, flaky and red.
While it helps to up your moisturizer, sometimes that just isn’t enough. This is where a good face mask will help supercharge and boost much-needed hydration to keep your skin looking and feeling healthy despite the gloomy weather outside.
So, to get your skin through winter here are some of my favourite go-to masks.
What dry skin needs the most is moisture, so I recommend the PCA Hydrating mask. An advanced blend of soothing ingredients and botanicals that helps reduce irritation and infuse the skin with hydration. Perfect for thirsty skin.
As you age your skin becomes drier and can lose its lustre especially in winter. Dermalogica’s Multi-Vitamin Power Recovery Masque offers a perfect remedy. An ultra-replenishing antioxidant-rich mask that will revitalize dull, dry, dehydrated skin.
To calm any redness, inflammation or soothe irritation Societe Rejuvenating Peptide Gel mask is your go-to. Specialized plant extracts provide effective antioxidants agents for soothing sensitized or wounded skin conditions. With licorice plant extract it has the potential to lighten and brighten the skin.
What an oily skin needs this winter is Medik8 Natural Clay Mask. Enriched with the purifying energy of bentonite and kaolin clay. The mask gently detoxifies the skin, draws out impurities, natural oils are bought back into balance and pores are undeniably refined.
