4 Instagram-Famous Masks That Solve Common Skin Problems
Choosing the most effective, selfie-friendly face mask is an essential part of a successful #selfcaresunday. Luckily, there are trending masks that are as powerful as they are Insta-worthy. Read on to learn how these four Instagrammable beauty treatments solve real-life skin concerns, but first, see them in action in the Obsessed AF video below.
1. If you have tired, lackluster skin, try GLAMGLOW #Glittermask GravityMud Firming Treatment ($59). Heavy on the silver star glitter, this moody mask lifts and brightens your complexion. “While this is a fun, sparkly mask for selfies, it provides the appearance of tighter, more lifted skin because of the high content of alcohol and witch hazel, that act much like a toner,” says Seattle-based dermatologist Heather Rogers.
2. If you have breakouts, try Boscia Luminizing Pink Peel Off Mask ($34). The beauty of the peel-off mask is that it works like a magnet for gunk deep inside your pores. “Witch hazel and clay in this mask are effective for binding and drawing out oils and dirt in blocked pores,” Rogers explains.
3. If you have dry, dull skin, try Memebox Sugar Kitten Hydrating Holographic Peel-Off Mask ($23). Dealing with a dry, dehydrated complexion? Get a max with mega-moisturizers like hyaluronic acid and jojoba oil in the mix. “This mask creates a fun social media moment, but it contains glycerin and hyaluronic acid to hydrate parched skin,” she says. “The precious stones’ powder is just another form of exfoliation.”
4. If you have uneven skin tone and texture, try Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask ($68). An all-in-one treatment that moisturizes and gently exfoliates is right up your alley. “This mask is made of clay to clear pores, fruit-derived vitamins, and alpha hydroxy acids to help even out uneven areas,” she tells us. Keep in mind that you might be extra sensitive to the sun after using this mask because of the citrus-based ingredients, so double up on your daily SPF.
