The Ultimate Self-Care Masks You Need Right Now.

*This Post contains PR Samples



One thing that really cheers me up while staying at home 24/7 right now is my self-care routine. And after talking to a lot of my friends we all seem to feel the same. Taking care of ourselves, mentally and physically, really helps to calm our anxiety right now. So today I thought I would share with you the go-to face masks that I love to use for my self-care rituals. 


This is the latest addition to my mask collection and is slowly becoming my favourite. It's a very hydrating and soothing mask that makes your skin feel radiant, plump and youthful. It goes on beautifully and also washes off very easily. This gel mask works even better if you store it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect. 

Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme

This was the first mask I ever tried from PTR and really the reason why I am so obsessed with their brand. It's an exfoliating mask which makes my skin look clear and fresh. I try to use it every other week but this is definitely more of an autumn/ winter mask for me. Maybe because of the scent as it most definitely smells exactly like its name. 


I use the Emma Hardie Cleansing Balm on a regular basis and I got this beautiful mask as an extra when I was looking for a mini version of the balm to take on my travels. This is for sure the richest mask I own. It feels very luxurious, soothing and clearing at the same time. It definitely is a mask I like to use when my skin is really acting up. 


This is what I normally call my "airplane mask". I always take this with my on long-haul flights as it really really gives me the moisture boost that my skin needs during hours on a plane. What I really like is that it is so moisturising without being too oily or heavy. If you apply a very thick layer it almost absorbs completely into your skin after an hour or so. I can't live without this anymore. 

The Ordinary AHA 30% + BHA 2%

This is probably one of the most potent masks I use. And I  LOVE it! It's actually a very liquid serum-like mask with a red tint to it (yup, it looks a lot like blood). This mask is extremely exfoliating. If you haven't used it before you might want to leave it on for a few minutes only. I sometimes go 20 or 30 minutes with it one, but you should just try it out for yourself. The packaging does recommend 10 minutes, so you maybe don't want to follow my example.. 


What are your favourite face masks?

  38. Omg, that mask from The Ordinary is definitely one of my favorites! It does look like blood and makes you scary looking at first, but I was so surprised at how bright was skin was afterwards! I need to get back to using it again. How many days a week do you use it yourself?
