Three masks, three moods: the treatments to adopt this winter
In winter, masking rhymes with cocooning. More than ever, your skin needs to be soothed, moisturized and protected to stay radiant. Comforting textures, active ingredients of natural origin that make you dream, scents that invite you to escape... Here is our selection of must-have masks to face winter in beauty, whatever your skin type and your concerns.
#winteressentials: the champions of dry and dehydrated skin
Moisturizing is THE essential step for winter. Yes, even if your skin is not particularly dehydrated. The go-to for all skin types in this regard: the hyaluronic acid mask.
This winter, make sure you always have a tube of Absolution Thirst Mask on hand. It's proven: it improves the skin's hydration level by 111%. Its clever cocktail of organic and natural active ingredients is enriched with soothing lapis lazuli powder to prevent minor discomfort. It leaves the skin plump, smoothes fine lines and brings a nice bounce to parchment skin.
On a more cocooning note, it's impossible to ignore one of Susanne Kaufmann 's bestsellers : the Moisturising mask. It will suit you especially if you have dry and dull skin. Its smooth whipped cream texture infuses the skin with hyaluronic acid and antioxidant alpine actives. Tip: Use it as an anti-croc skin night cream as well.
Pssst: To keep maximum moisture in the upper layers of the skin, don't forget to follow up with a moisturizer. Our pick of the season: I.D. Swiss Botanicals Hydrating Radiance Cream. You'll love its incredibly light and surprisingly effective texture! Even sensitive skin can use it as a daily moisturizer.
#Winter comfort: cuddly toys that soothe skin discomforts
With the cold comes tightness, tingling and sometimes even irritation. To regain comfort and softness in the blink of an eye, opt for rich, soothing and rebalancing masks.
Have you ever tried cannabidiol (CBD) on your skin? This is the star ingredient of the I.D. Swiss Botanicals Relaxing Mask. More precisely, it is the "CBD beauty" complex, which allows a better distribution and preservation of the active ingredients. A protective compound par excellence, it supports the physiological functions of the skin and helps it regain its natural balance. It is the ideal mask to revitalize all types of skin. Its + : its fabric format in organic cotton !
In case of dry and rough skin, the Happy Officine team recommends the Comforting Rich Mask from the French brand Absolution. Formulated as a real "comfort food" for the skin, it strengthens the skin barrier in 15 minutes and prevents the visible signs of stress thanks to a magnesium boost. Your skin will feel like it's at the spa, even after the application...
Do you have skin prone to redness and imperfections? Still at Absolution, turn to the Detoxifying Purity Mask instead. Its blend of spirulina, myrtle, mate and licorice will help you get through the winter with a clearer, more even and comfortable skin. Plus, its pretty apple green "green smoothie" color will bring a touch of cheerfulness to those sad winter days.
#winter radiance: the aces of anti-aging
Wrinkles, fine lines, dull complexion, signs of fatigue... Here are two "magic wand" masks that will sublimate your skin in a few minutes. The must-have before a party or a date.
Does your complexion tend to look gray during the cold season? Apply a thick layer of Agent Nateur's Holi(bright ) and leave it on for 15 minutes (or even longer) before rinsing. Its cocktail of lactic acid, silk peptides and dragon fruit extract refines skin texture and boosts radiance. Your winter boosting treatment!
And if you need an express rejuvenation treatment, opt for the Rolls Royce of anti-aging masks: the Lifting mask line A from Susanne Kaufmann. This luxurious nectar with ubiquinone (coenzyme Q10), AHAs, amino acids and argan oil tightens the features and appearance of mature skin. In just 10 minutes, skin looks younger and more refreshed.
Want a mask that you can apply every day for a shock treatment? Absolution's Velvet Plumping Mask is for you. Draw it whenever you feel like it to plump up your skin damaged by the cold. Ultra complete, it helps to smooth the surface of wrinkled skin while boosting collagen synthesis. Use it also as an intense night mask!
