Look, we get it, the world we live in is a busy one. We’re all motoring along at a million miles per hour just trying to get everything done, but that doesn’t mean we should let moments of self-care fall by the wayside.
Taking the time – even if it is just five minutes – to rest and replenish is important. That’s why we love express face masks that give our skin a bit of extra love while also offering us a moment of refuge from the hustle and bustle of life.
From ultra-powerful hydrators to blemish-clearing picks, these are the express masks we’re relying on for some momentary relief:
Synergie Skin TriDation B
Offering a triple dose of hydration this gel mask takes just five minutes to take effect but can be worn as a sleeping mask if you need an intensified hit of moisture. Skin feels plump, bouncy and dewy post-application thanks to a cocktail of humectants and stimulating ingredients that naturally encourage the production of hyaluronic acid. Antioxidants and skin soothers also tackle sensitivity and redness, boosting the overall health of skin.
SEPHORA COLLECTION Colorful Vitamin Face Mask
Only have five minutes to spare? Streamline your daily dose of vitamins with one of these antioxidant-rich mask offerings from Sephora; vitamin C boosts radiance for a glowy complexion, vitamin B6 nourishes and repairs, vitamin E hydrates and tones, and vitamin B3 brightens and protects against pollutants.
PAI SKINCARE Dinner Out Copaiba & Kaolin Blemish Mask
Skin freaking out before a big event? Say buh-bye to unsightly blemishes with this fast-acting clay formula that clarifies skin, drawing out impurities and rebalancing without drying out your complexion. Hello glow!
INDIE LEE I-Waken Resurfacing Mask
Skin is rejuvenated with a slew of skin-loving ingredients such as vitamin C-rich java plum, mango and banana extracts, and naturally-derived BHAs that gently slough away dead skin to reveal an impressively renewed complexion. Kaolin and bentonite clay draw out impurities and excess sebum, while jasmine and burdock root soothe and soften skin for a supple and radiant visage.
innisfree Volcanic Color Clay Mask Cica
Far from your average clay mask, this cica-infused offering delivers gentle clarifying action, while soothing inflammation and gently exfoliating skin. Reduce redness, shine and the appearance of pores in just 10 minutes. Pro tip: use a zoning masking technique to spot-treat problem areas such as your T-zone.
