Sensitive skin can be tricky so extra care and attention should be given when attempting to choose the best face mask for your skincare routine. Here are a few face masks for sensitive skin you should check out
This one’s an advanced treatment mask with medical grade ingredients. It works by clearing the face of blackheads, oil, and toxins. In addition to this, it gives the complexion a nice tone and tightens the pores. If you’re more worried about anti-aging, this mask aids in the production of collagen and skin repair, helping with wrinkles. I like the professional level ingredients, and the face there’s no harmful ingredients like parabens or sulfates.
GLAMGLOW’s masks have definitely been making the rounds on Instagram and while I love this one personally, I have some reservations about it for sensitive skin. First of all, like the name indicates, it does tingle and burn while applying it. However the results are pretty amazing so if your skin can make it through, it’s well worth the slight discomfort.
Don’t let the packaging put you off, these are powerful skin masks. The great aspect of this mask is it can work for several different skin types. It hydrates sensitive skin and makes it glow. For aging skin, it helps with wrinkles, age spots, and fine lines. The exfoliating aspect works to eliminate or reduce dead skin cells, dirt, and acne. What I like most is that the sheet mask format is easy to use, just put it on your face, leave 15-20 minutes and peel off. You can even leave the remaining goo on your face and just rub it in.
Charcoal is having its day as the hot skincare ingredient. This mask promises to unclog pores, release impurities and toxins, and leave your skin with a healthy-looking glow. If you’re new to masks and want to try them for the first time, this comes in a single use packet that is perfect for travel or when you have easily irritated skin and want to sample.
AHAVA’s Dead Sea Mud Mask rejuvenates and clears skin. The minerals contained in it have a ton of benefits to offer the skin. They reduce acne and shrink the size of the pores. On top of that, the mask has several anti-aging effects. What I like most about this one is you can do it for 2-minutes in the shower so if you really want a mask you can use on the go, this is it.
Oatmeal might not be the first thing you think of when you think of high-end skincare but it’s well-known for its soothing effects on the skin. However I’ve tried slapping oatmeal directly on my face and it’s do-able but pretty messy. This product’s formulated with anti-aging ingredients that also work to treat fine lines and wrinkles so it’s tidier and packs more benefits. If you're looking for a mask to sooth your irritated skin, give this one a try.
Evanhealy’s Green Tea Clay mask feels like a trip to the spa. While the clay makes it a bit more effort than a sheet mask, it’s effectiveness is worth the effort. Use it weekly to clear out your pores and leave your skin smoother. Clay can sometimes activate skin, increasing blood flow so my skin appeared slight red afterwards — don’t try this for the first time before a big meeting or date. However it cleared up quickly
Whether they’re sheet, in-shower, mud, clay or wash off — masks offer a way to boost your weekly skincare routine in an easy way. Sensitive skin always requires a bit more time and attention, however with some trial and error, you’re sure to find a mask that can benefit your skin.
