The number of people who have seen your face completely in the last year is probably quite limited. And while camouflage has certain benefits (besides slowing down the spread of COVID-19!)

Oily and acne-prone skin
1. Rescue mask of Eva Lom
A kaolin clay mask infused with honey soothes and cleanses the skin at the same time. The crushed almonds then gently exfoliate, leaving your face fresh and ready to meet new and old friends for the first time in a year.
2. Mask for the face OMOROVICZA Silver Skin Savior Face Mask.
The key ingredient in this mask is colloidal silver, known for its antibacterial properties. It works in tandem with the niacinamide mask to brighten the skin. Acids – glycolic and salicylic – try to unclog pores even more. The overall effect is clearer, brighter skin, hydrated without radiance.
3. Lancer purifying detox mask.
Green tea and green clay combine in this mask to brighten and cleanse the skin, along with detoxifying sulfur and azelaic acid to enhance radiance. Use as a spot treatment or mask for the entire face, and after 15 minutes, acne will be noticeably reduced, and your skin will be healthier, brighter and more even.
4. Cleansing mask Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare DRx Blemish Solutions.
This brightening mask from the brand’s favorite editor is based on colloidal sulfide, bentonite clay and kaolin clay to remove blemishes. And while it is formulated for oily skin types, it does its job of cleansing the skin and absorbing skin blemishes without drying out. The mask is also designed to reduce redness and relies on aloe to soothe sore skin. It can be applied on top of it or left overnight.
5. Cleansing mask Dr. Jart + Dermask Micro Jet Clearing Mask
This leaf mask is infused with a cleansing solution complex, a proprietary blend of niacinamide, tea tree leaf oil and salicylic acid designed to remove acne. It is specially formulated for the care of oily skin and, as such, provides gentle hydration without further clogging pores. After use, your skin will look calm, clean and vibrant.
Dry and mature skin
1. La Mer healing mask-lotion
This is by no means a budget find, but at least you are spending money on * real * results. The serum of this mask is a blend of Miracle Broth (La Mer’s proprietary formulation), a regenerating enzyme (sea minerals and algae) and microfiber technology to moisturize your pandemic-tired skin. The $ 165 price tag includes just six masks, but they should last six months to a year, given that they’re more of a temporary remedy than part of a daily regimen (if you’re, say, Kylie Jenner-Rich). If you have the money, these babies are worth spending to revitalize dried, world-weary skin.
2. Kiehl’s Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask
There is something so indulgent and at the same time down to earth about applying an avocado cream to your face. While it’s nothing special, this mask is formulated with ultra-moisturizing avocado fruit extract and avocado oil and evening primrose oil. It only lasts 15 minutes and the skin becomes noticeably less sensitive, tired and dull.
3. Mask “Youth for People” Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask
My skin is as dry as the desert I live in (Los Angeles!) And this is one of my favorite moisturizing products. The whipped mixture uses plant-based squalane, hyaluronic acid, glycerin and betaine to effectively moisturize and plump skin. One of the things I love the most about this mask – besides how well it does its job – is that you can put it on at night and forget about it, instead of rinsing it off before bed.
4. Night mask True Botanicals Moisture Lock Overnight
This scented mask uses ingredients such as plant-based hyaluronic acid, squalane, mango oil and an amino acid blend from seaweed that has been shown to increase collagen production by 400 percent after 48 hours. Like the Youth for the People mask, this one also allows you to wear it before bed and forget about it at night while it works its magic. And while many moisturizing masks can cause breakouts on even the driest of skin, this lightweight product doesn’t clog pores and can be safely used as often as you like.
5. Charlotte Tilbury Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask
This plastic mask is unique in that it is dry, which means that no mucous contamination occurs with the mask. For this reason, it can also be used for up to three ultra-hydrating and volumizing sessions, and can even be applied over makeup (although for best results, use it on cleansed skin whenever possible). To moisturize, soothe and brighten skin, the mask’s active ingredients include niacinamide, shea butter, avocado oil, mango oil, crocus bulb extract, peptide complex and sea fern extract. In a very small trial run by the company, 91 percent of users reported an improvement in the moisture content of their skin.
Inflamed and uneven skin
1. Alpyn Beauty Soothing Midnight Mask.
This gentle mask is made with antioxidant-rich wild dandelions grown in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, which are included for their anti-inflammatory properties. Other energetic ingredients include bakuchiol (plant-based retinol) as well as magnesium and valerian root. The overall effect of this overnight mask is calmer, plumper and more hydrated in the morning.
2. Clay mask with vitamin C “Three ships soothes” Rosehip.
Vitamin C is essentially “his” skin care ingredient. du jour to lighten the skin. Here it is found in rosehip extract, which is blended with the cleansing pink clay for an overall brightening and brightening effect. Use this mask before summer days without makeup for a Photoshop effect.
3. Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Repair Mask
This whipped mask will moisturize even the most thirsty skin. It is formulated with a combination of effective ingredients including white camellia wax, hyaluronic acid and glycerin to protect against moisture; soothing panthenol; and the antioxidant-rich Blue Ginger PolyFractioned Active, a Chanel patented ingredient.
4. Chantecaille Gold Recovery Mask
If you are the type of person who loves to pamper themselves, this mask is well worth the price. OK, gold. First of all, it contains blackcurrant seed oil, which, importantly, helps to build and protect the skin barrier. It also contains 24 carat gold and silk extracts that promise antioxidant properties, as well as probiotics and a combination of peptides that tone and brighten skin while firming and moisturizing. Although it is effective in just 10-15 minutes, you can leave it on overnight for more intense results.
5. Restoring mask Tata Harper.
This Tata Harper gem is actually more like a peel than a mask that uses beta and alpha hydroxy acids to smooth and soothe skin and ultimately create a smoother, more vibrant skin tone. It is an ideal pre-hanging skin shedding method that will dislodge old skin in preparation for a new social life after vaccination.
