If you live where you have to weather a cold season, then you know the toll it can take on your face. This time of year I see a lot of clients who suffer from dehydrated skin. A quick way to re-hydrate is adding a gel mask to your regime during the winter/spring season. A gel mask will cool, sooth and infuse the skin with water leaving the skin plump, and soft as a baby’s bottom. Here are a few gel masks that I love working with.
Astra Golden Flame Hydration Mask
Contains Organic Aloe Vera Leaf Juice, Cucumber and Chamomile to sooth. Hyaluronic Acid helps draw and bind moisture to the skin. Leave on for 30 minutes then rinse, or can be left on overnight. Price: 2 oz. Jar $44.00 & 1.3 oz. Jar $31.00 Available Astara.
Bio Elements Gel Therapy Hydrating
This 10 minute mask contains essential minerals to promote healthy skin, and plant extracts to strengthening and balance the skin. This product is great for skin suffering from sunburns or wind burns and is ideal after any facial procedure that may leave the skin feeling some irritation. Price: 2.5 oz. Jar $38.00 Available at Bio Elements.
Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque
This ultra-soothing masque is suitable for all skin types. It contains natural enzymes like cucumber, papaya, and sugar cane to exfoliate and soften the skin. Ingredients like Allantoin and Chamomile help soothe the skin. This is also a great product to use under the eye to reduce puffiness. Price: 5.3 oz. Jar $45.00 Available at PTR.
