If there’s one benefit to our new #stayathome lifestyle, it’s the unique opportunity we’ve been presented with that allows us to indulge in skin care goodness at any, and all times of the day. Yes, that means finally being able to follow the 27-step routine your dermatologist prescribed.
And while fitting in that essential double-cleanse every day is an added bonus, there’s nothing that makes us feel more boujee than a great face mask and cup of tea as we type away at our desks. In the spirit of honesty, it’s exactly what I’m doing right now.
But with hundreds of complexion-perfecting options on the market, targeting every skin concern from hydration to breakouts and pigmentation, it can be difficult to know which treatment to choose. So, we figured, why not look to our favourite celebrities and stars for some guidance?
From 24K-gold masks and LED shields to natural beeswax variants that taste just as good as they feel, we’ve rounded up the best face masks that have been given the celebrity tick of approval!
When it comes to flawless skin, model Kaia Gerber has that obstacle in the bag. Her plump, fresh and vibrant skin is enviable to say the least, and now we know why. Gerber is a huge fan of this ultra-luxe 24K-gold facial by celebrity aesthetician Mimi Luzon. The mask helps visibly reduce the signs of ageing, by tightening, smoothing and brightening the skin. If you’re ready to give it a shot, you can score the model-approved gold mask from Net-A-Porter.
While beauty obsessive January Jones is an avid lover of face masks, judging by her Instagram feed, she seems to have subconsciously classified this Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet as one of her true favourites. The reusable (yes, it has more than one life) mask, helps target fine lines and wrinkles, dryness, dullness and uneven texture.
It’s a tough gig being Posh Spice, but Victoria Beckham turns to this futuristic LED mask by The Light Salon to keep her skin looking youthful and radiant. The mask uses non-invasive light therapy to help ward off wrinkles, aid hydration and boost collagen.
Ever noticed that the oldest member of the Kardashian clan rarely has a single bag under her eye? Yeah, us too. Kourtney Kardashian has spilled on her trick for nixing under-eye issues and it’s surprisingly simple. Before a night out or event, Kardashian puts her favourite gel eye patches, the Skyn Iceland Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels in the fridge before applying them at least five minutes before she starts her makeup.
The always ethereal Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is another celebrity who likes to incorporate gold into her skin care routine. The model and fashion icon is a major fan of 111Skin’s Rose Gold Brightening Facial Treatment Mask, revealing in an interview that it’s often her go-to sheet mask for in-flight skin hydration.
Drew Barrymore and Cameron Diaz
Besties who mask together, stay together – right? The long-time friends are serious fans of natural beauty products and their favourite B.Powered face mask by The Beekeeper’s Naturals is no exception. The mask is made of 100 per cent raw crystallised honey and it promises to offer moisturising, anti-ageing and exfoliation benefits for smooth and glowing skin. We can see why Drew and Cameron rate it, because it sounds like a serious all-rounder.
Chrissy Teigen is certainly someone who is not afraid to get candid when dishing out beauty advice on the internet and it turns out she also happens to be a fan of the Insta-famous GlamGlow GravityMud Firming Treatment. The firming and tightening mask is known for its luminescent silver finish, but it also delivers in the results department, with 92% of consumers saying their skin felt firmer while 91% said their skin looked tighter and had better tone.
Riverdale star Lili Reinhart has been pretty open about her struggles with cystic acne in the past, so you know when she recommends a product, she definitely means it. Reinhart is a regular visitor of celebrity facialist Renée Rouleau, but when she can’t make it to the salon, she likes to keep her skin looking clear by using Rouleau’s Rapid Response Detox Masque when she’s experiencing a particularly nasty bout of cystic acne.
