Dull, Dry Skin? Give These Sheet Masks 20 Minutes, and You'll Be Glowing Again
Of all the things January has going for it (a sense of possibility, ever-lengthening days, cocoa festivals) one major drawback is what the weather does to our faces. Dry air tends to siphon skin's moisture, leading to tightness, itchiness, and overall dullness. Not exactly the kind of fresh start to 2020 that most of us are looking for. The good news: 20 minutes or so with a sheet mask can hydrate, soften, and brighten your skin and restore it to top shape. To find one that works for your particular skin situation, first assess your need. Are you looking to hydrate dry skin while treating dark spots? Or perhaps you want to address dryness while encourageing clear pores at the same time. No matter your needs, there's a mask whose active ingredients will give your skin a boost.
The best skincare ingredients for Winter include hyaluronic acid (a lightweight ingredient that locks in water), vitamin C (essential for brightening), retinol (to reveal fresh new cells), and shea butter (a rich emollient). You'll find dozens of options with these ingredients, there's a wide range of sheet masks on the shelves, from serum-soaked paper versions to essence-drenched biocellulose ones. Whatever your skin goal is, you can achieve it here — and we've highlighted our favourites at a wide range of complexion needs and shopping budgets. Read on to discover your next favourite, too.
