A good skincare routine, even the simplest, is the secret for every beautiful and healthy-looking face: this is a fact that many people seem to underestimate and very few, even knowing the benefits of it, manage to stick with a strict beauty routine.
No matter how much one might spend on makeup, taking good care of your face will always be a priority and, in the end, will make a difference between a really stunning and a fake glow.
Our beauty routine, although it’s often seen as a must, should always be a pleasure.
Won’t you treat yourself (and your skin) with a bubble bath and… a bubble mask? Wouldn’t you fancy a night in with your best friends, gossip, and a good detox sheet mask? Or, maybe, just you, Netflix, a bottle of sparkly wine and the relaxing sensation of a creamy, purifying mask? Or would you go for a regenerating formula with rich and yummy ingredients?
There are infinite ways to feed your beauty with masks, be them with Active Charcoal, self-heating or with real fruit extracts.
The final result is definitely up to the one who uses the mask: once you’ve found your favorite type, the one that really does good for your skin, stick to it and use it whenever you want. But never stop to try new ones, according to your skin type and necessities, because there’s nothing as flawlessly satisfying as some quality time taking care of your skin.
And, who knows? You might end up finding your new favorite mask.
From the simplest to the fanciest way to pamper polluted, tired and unhappy skin, here are the best to-the-rescue solutions that you should try as soon as you can.
Purifying Charcoal Bubble Sheet Mask by Sanctuary SPA
Charcoal performs a detoxifying effect while oxygen purifies.
The combination of the two triggers not only an incredible chain of benefits for the skin but also a super-funny explosion of soft, dark bubbles. Take off the sheet mask, wash away the bubbles and feel the difference: this tiny bubbly miracle by Sanctuary SPA will not let you down.
UFO Smart Mask Treatment by Foreo
Technology and beauty go hand in hand in this cutting-edge product, which is not precisely a mask but a tool to make your skin ever so beautiful: combined with 7 masks for every need of the skin, UFO’s Hyper-Infusion Technology uses the skin’s natural reactions to heat and cold, as well as the signature T-Sonic pulsations to boost every mask’s effect. With Thermo and Cryo Therapy, as well as the advanced LED Therapy (red light for antiageing, green for boosting radiance and blue for blemishes), the skin is cuddled according to its most specific needs, while the T-Sonic pulsation creates a soothing facial massage that helps the penetration of the mask into the skin. The application of a mask only lasts 90 seconds, thanks to the technology that ensures the best result in a short time and the choice is vast and surprising: the highest peak of South-Korean technology on beauty tools offers brightening, mattifying or soothing masks.
For example, Matte Maniac has an oil-free formula that clarifies and prepares the skin for makeup, H2Overdose is deeply hydrating, Call it a Night (with ginseng and olive oil) revitalizes and nourishes the skin and Shimmer Freak is a caffeine-infused secret for a rested and bright eye contour.
I’m Real Sheet Mask by Tony Moly
Hydrate, purify and brighten your skin with this lovely collection of sheet masks by Tony Moly.

As part of the Glamour Beauty Power List 2018, this mud mask will not let you down. Boost its beneficial effect of the Supermud following it with Glamglow’s deeply hydrating mask.
Instant Magic Facial Dry Sheet Mask by Charlotte Tilbury
So, if you love Charlotte Tilbury’s product this Dry Sheet Mask is definitely a must-have: it hydrates gently and brightens the skin thanks to the B3 Vitamin. Crocus Bulb Extract also helps the natural production of Collagen, making the skin visibly firmer and fuller.
The dry mask, unlike many other wet sheet ones, is reusable: you can apply it up to three times before its ingredients lose their nutritive and brightening power.
Flower Fusion Sheet Mask by Origins
Origins is doing good, lately, and we’re all loving its 100% Natural, great and effective ingredients.
This Sheet Mask (with a flowery and pink-to-yellow packaging) is perfect for giving your skin that boost of brightness it needed: real flowers, moisturizing essential oils, and bamboo make this mask the perfect ally for dull, thirsty and unhappy skin.
Porefining Pink Clay by Sand & Sky
From the shores of Australia, this pink must-have is not only all over Instagram but also a product of proved efficacy. Thanks to the astringent Witch Hazel and the Pink Australian Clay, this mask will mop up oil and unclog pores, while Vitamin A helps to regulate the skin’s oil production. Pomegranate boosts cellular turnover, while Kakadu Plum and licorice brighten the skin and make it radiant, leaving a smooth surface and a renovated skin.
Cup pack Charcoal Mask by Ettang
With this one starts the real fun. This mask comes in in powder form and with a bowl-like packaging.
All you have to do is add water and play with the small spoon (it comes with the packaging, too) until the mask looks like an even, smooth mix. Then apply carefully on the face and wait: you’ll feel the mask turning from a mud-like, refreshing mixture to a gummy consistency.
The result is peel-off, detoxifying and extremely satisfying.
Quench Intense Hydration Masks by Saturday Skin
With Hyaluronic Acid and Aloe Vera Extract, the Quench Intense Hydration Mask plumps the skin, moisturizing and refreshing it thoroughly to boost a healthier, nourished complexion. Say goodbye to dull, tired skin, because this South Korean brand is true to its name, and you’ll look like you’re living a never-ending weekend. Effortless to apply, since the ultra-light bio-cellulose material adheres to the skin perfectly, and easy to peel off, this mask pampers your face while you relax, with watermelon and Cha-7 Es Complex quenching the needs of thirsty, stressed skin
Rubber Mask Firm Lover by Dr Jart+
Another Korean savvy product, this firming rubber mask is composed of 2 steps: first, there’s a serum to apply and then the mask itself wraps the skin to prevent active ingredients from evaporating. This process allows the product to penetrate further into the skin, helping the formula (enriched with berry complex for plumping and red algae for radiance) to support natural elasticity of the skin and to make it look more healthy, luminous and happy.
