Say goodbye to winter skin blues.
The change in seasons and subsequent drop in temperatures can wreak havoc on skin. When the air cools skin can be left dry and out of balance. To combat the chaos, I have three face masks that I rely on to keep skin glowing and smooth—sans pimples, dry patches, or flakey skin.
1. Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Mask
This mask is packed with rejuvenating skin benefits and can be used year round, but is especially great when the weather turns harsh. It’s gentle enough for sensitive skin and provides much-needed hydration that soothes irritation while detoxifying impurities. I like to use a very thin layer before bed. After rinsing it off in the morning my skin is much softer and smoother.
2. Origins Original Skin Retexturizing Mask
While not as gentle as the previous formula, this mask is like a reset button for skin. I like to use it when I am in need of some serious renewal. I typically use it once every couple weeks, and try not to overuse it as it can be more drying. However, it’s great for diminishing pores and restoring clarity, leaving skin glowing. And because it only takes 10 minutes, it’s easy to fit into a busy schedule.
3. Proactiv Skin Purifying Mask
This mask is my holy grail product when it comes to spot-treating blemishes. While it can be used on the entire face, I prefer to apply it before bed onto any stubborn spots I may have. When I wake up in the morning I rinse the entreatment off and pimples are substantially smaller and less noticeable. It’s powerful, yet gentle enough to be used nightly and has never irritated my sensitive skin, which is often hard to come by.
