You know that meme about putting on a mask to solve all your problems? Well, we like to believe there is some truth to that—at least when it comes to your skin.
We don't have to go through the list of bad things winter weather does to your face. (We know you are very well aware.) So we want to offer you our top solution to fighting dryness and other skin concerns that pop up when it gets colder: face masks. They're easy to do, and it's always nice to feel like you're in a spa in your very own home. We've rounded up our absolute favorites.
Click through to see what winter face masks we'll be using this season.
La Prairie Skin Caviar Luxe Sleep Mask ($345)
Can we sell you on a $300 sleep mask? We're going to try. In all honesty, it's one of our favorites—especially in the winter—because it just jolts our dull skin back to life. Made with a caviar extract to nourish the skin and boost its firmness, plus an exclusive Cellular Complex that smooths out uneven skin texture to reveal soft skin literally the next morning, this really is more of an investment in your skin than it is a splurge.
May Lindstrom Skin The Problem Solver ($100)
Its name really explains it all. Breakouts? Hyperpigmentation? Inflammation? Dryness? Dullness? Made with raw cacao (which is rich in antioxidants), bamboo charcoal, and soil nutrients, this mask solves every skin concern you may have.
Tammy Fender Restorative Radiance Masque ($235)
Apart from smelling amazing (it contains floral waters such as jasmine, rose, and helichrysum), this mask stimulates cell regeneration so that your skin looks brighter and smoother.
Biologique Recherche Masque VIP O2
It's no secret that Team Byrdie loves Biologique Recherche, so it shouldn't be that much of a surprise that one of its masks made it onto our list of winter essentials. This mask in particular restores luminosity with its moisturizing botanical ingredients and its special oxygenating complex.
Grown Alchemist Hydra-Repair Cream-Masque ($69)
This mask is made with olive extract polyphenols that tone and firm skin, while the babassu improves skin's elasticity and reduces the appearance of fine lines. And honestly, we love it enough that we sometimes use it as an intense hydrating moisturizer.
First Aid Beauty Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask ($24)
The oats in this mask are known to help repair damaged and dry skin. Mix them with botanical antioxidants, and you have a nourishing and hydrating mask that only takes 10 minutes to work its magic.
Philosophy Renewed Hope In A Jar Re-Energizing Moisture Mask ($37)
You get 24-hour hydration with this mask, and it gently refines any uneven skin texture. You'll notice any fine lines disappear after a couple of uses as well.
Dr. Jart+ Water Fuse Hydro Sleep Mask ($48)
We're big fans of overnight masks. This one in particular enhances your skin's moisture level to combat serious dryness and brightens up your complexion.
Tatcha Violet-C Radiance Mask ($68)
Packed with two types of vitamin C, AHAs from seven fruits, and a Japanese beautyberry, this mask is perfect to keep your glow on during the colder months.
Volition Beauty Detoxifying Slit Gelee Mask ($60)
Five stars on Sephora is a big deal. This mask draws out any impurities without drying the skin thanks to black silt, which is rich in bioactive mineral and nutrient compounds.
Laneige Water Sleeping Mask ($25)
This was the first overnight mask that convinced us that sleeping masks were legit. It contains a complex made with orange flower, rose, and sandalwood to relax and comfort the skin and a highly concentrated mineral water to deliver high doses of moisture.
