Four New Face Masks You Should Add To Your Sunday Rotation

Sunday has consistently served as my pampering day for probably the past five years or so—and it'll likely stay that way forever, tbh. There's something about the relaxing, lazy-day feel that never fails to get me in the mood to #TreatMyself, which I'll be real, almost always involves slapping on a face mask. In case you're not familiar, there's myriad different face masks on the market, running the gamut from acne-banishing, to redness-calming, to thirst-quenching, and many more. They work by penetrating your epidermis with a crazy-potent blend of powerful ingredients, and the best part is that most of them have a luxurious, spa-like feel. Ed note: Korea has most definitely been behind some of the major mask trends in the past year or so, but I'm going to save that subject for an all-Korean skin care post I'll be writing in the near future. As for now, read on to find out which one of these fabulous face masks you need to add to your regime.

Kiehl's Cilantro & Orange Pollutant Defending Masque ($32): Live in a city or town that's laden with harmful pollutants? Then you need this protective treatment mask in your life, now. The impressive blend of cilantro and orange extract works to strengthen the skin, combat impurities, and enhance radiance overall. It's a must-try.

Dr. Andrew Weil for Origin's Mega-Bright Dark Spot Correcting Mask ($56): If you suffer from acne scars and stubborn hyperpigmentation, then trust me when I say this mask will be your jam. The rundown: It feels like your favorite nighttime moisturizer (meaning it's ultra-rich and hydrating), but it truly works overtime to reverse skin damage, reduce dark spots, and improve the complexion's tone and clarity. Case in point: It's so worth its slightly hefty price tag.

Herbivore Botanticals Herbivore Blue Clay Spot Treatment Mask ($22): One of my more niche faves, this natural mask comes packed with blue clay, white kaolin clay, and rose geranium oil to detoxify and soothe the skin in record time. It banishes zits crazy-quickly and leaves my skin feeling super-clean, sans that dreaded 'tight' feeling.

Peter Thomas Roth Blue Marine Algae Intense Hydrating Mask ($52): If you're looking to seriously boost the hydration and combat dry spots, then you need to take this amazing mask for a test-drive. Nutrient-rich blue algae soothes and defends against dehydration, while microalgae, sea water, antarcticine, and tea from the Jeju Islands of Korea provide—and help maintain—the moisture levels in your skin. Pretty impressive, no? A must-have for drier skin types.
