4 Smart Masks That Are Changing Skincare One #SelfCareSunday at a Time
After a long day, few things are as satisfying as slathering skin in soothing, results-driven, serum-soaked masks. While traditional sheet masks have been a major staple in everyday and self-care Sunday routines, nowadays things are starting to get a whole lot more advanced. Within the past few months, the beauty world has seen the introduction of smart masks. Designed to create an elevated experience (through infrared light, advanced self-timer formulas, and galvanic current), these at-home treatments promote better penetration, longer-lasting results, and an all-around tech- savvy approach to caring for your complexion. Ahead, we introduce you to the four masking products changing the way we pamper our skin.
To achieve the best possible results, try exfoliating before using the mask so that the lights have less buildup to bust through, and then wait to moisturize until after use. When used daily for the recommended three-minute treatment time, you can expect to see results in as little as two weeks, with optimal complexion changes appearing at the 10-week mark.
3. Karuna Revivify+ Sheer Collection ($12 for a single mask or $44 for a set of four): Smart masks aren’t reserved only for high-tech skincare tools. Case in point: This complexion-clinging sheet mask collection. Made with Japanese sheer cotton, these delicate masks (available in both face and eye versions) lock onto skin and look almost transparent. As the coconut water hydrating masks infuse skin with moisture to plump fine lines and wrinkles and create an all-over dewy glow, the see-through fibers begin to change color, turning white once the masking moment is complete. A self-timer that takes the guesswork out of when to remove a mask? Yes, please.
