More than one kind of face mask is growing in popularity during the coronavirus pandemic.
President Donald Trump announced new face mask recommendations last week, instructing Americans to cover their faces with cloth while out in public. The fashion community already has seen the ascent of the face mask style statement after the pieces hit the front row of Milan and Paris Fashion Weeks in February. Meanwhile, luxury fashion houses — including Chanel, Armani and Saint Laurent — transformed factories into manufacturing centers for medical face masks to donate.
But for skin-care aficionados, face masks have a whole different meaning. Stars, ranging from Kristen Bell to Gabrielle Union, are embracing stay-at-home orders and turning to self-care while social distancing. Stars have been posting their favorite at-home spa products — from sheet masks to gel masks — to keep skin fresh during a stressful time.
Here are eight popular face masks to help treat dry or problematic skin at home.
Spouses Kristen Bell and Dax Shepard got cozy with some Hetime Anti-Aging and Hydrating Face Masks ($8) to show their “couples style,” as she wrote on Instagram March 25.
This week, Gabrielle Union relaxed with the Loops Double Take sheet masks ($30) with sunflower seed oil and aloe vera.
3. Youth to the People
The Superberry Hydrate and Glow Dream Mask ($48) uses superberries and THD ascorbate to brighten the skin with vitamin C.
With a smooth, jelly-like texture, the label’s iridescent Exfoliating Glow Facial ($58) exfoliates the skin thanks to acids from fruit and willow bark, for weekly use.
Fans of Sisley-Paris’ Black Rose Cream Mask ($166) include Danai Gurira, Allison Williams and January Jones; the rinse-free treatment works to plump, tone, moisturize and soften.
Ariana Grande has tried out the Luminizing Black Charcoal Mask ($34) to minimize pores. Other Boscia fans include Sophie Turner and Lea Michele.
7. The Inkey List
Makeup artist Frankie Boyd got Scarlett Johansson’s skin red carpet ready with The Inkey List for the 2020 Golden Globes. Try its Kaolin Mask ($6.99) with clay to reduce oil on the face.
8. RéVive Skincare
Chrissy Teigen’s favorite, Masque de Radiance ($150) brightens the skin, and selfie-lovers will appreciate its pearly-white, “souffle-like” texture.
