It may be the paranoia talking, but after the party season, it can suddenly seem like every late night and cheeky chocolate is making a come back on your face.
Whether it’s blemishes, redness, or general lackluster, everyone’s skin reacts in different ways to overindulgence. The good news is that while you’re getting back into the swing of things with your beauty regime, there are a few face masks that will give you an instant glow along the way.
5 Face Masks for an Instant Glow
1. Cocovita Coconut Charcoal Face Mask
There’s nothing that draws out impurities quite like charcoal, so now is the perfect time for it to flex its detoxing muscle power. One of the main points of exit for toxins from the body is our skin, so it’s no surprise that acne prone skin types will be breaking out after a boozy night. As well as purifying the skin, this mask helps the healing process with ayurvedic heroes turmeric and neem.
2. Odacite Synergie  Immediate Skin Perfecting Masque
Immediate? Perfecting? Sold. It may sound like a gimmick, but there’s nothing insincere about the name of this creation from skin experts Odacite. Designed to target an array of sign issues from dryness to dullness, this multi-tasking mask pulls out all of the stops. One thing to get particularly excited about is the probiotics, as they are fantastic for calming irritated and inflamed skin, so any signs of redness will be instantly taken down a peg or two.
3. Lani Tropical Fruit Radiance Mask
Sometimes it’s difficult to pinpoint exactly what’s up with your skin. Things can look just a little, well, meh. It could be down to skipping your daily green juice, but a buildup of dead skin cells can also be the culprit. Experience a truly glow-inducing pamper session with this vitamin-C-packed mask. Not only does the combination of baobab, mango, and pineapple powders smell incredible, but it leaves skin naturally exfoliated and bright.
4. Tata Harper Resurfacing Mask
If dry powder masks aren’t your thing, then this soothing gel mask will be. A cult classic among green beauty fans, this is one that you’ll be putting into permanent rotation after using it for a quick fix. Thanks to willow bark extract, a gentle exfoliator and purifier, skin is left looking refined and feeling smoother. Any active blemishes are also taken care of, with probiotics and aloe vera tackling inflammation like pros. Instant glow? You betcha.
5. R.L Linden & Co The Bee Charmer
More sensitive faces will appreciate the gentle nature of this mask (which doubles as a cleanser, too). Raw honey is a real treat for skin that’s been through the party wars, working hard to nourish and soothe. Having fantastic antibacterial properties makes it perfect for addressing those pesky pimples, while the addition of kaolin clay means there’s detoxing action in the works, too. And the organic cacao? A welcome whiff for those of us still craving a chocolatey fix!
