10 Face Masks That Are Perfect For The Fall Season
Chilly weather is the mark of a change in your skincare routine. As the summer days fade away we’re less concerned about applying shimmer to our entire body and more focused on how to keep our skin moisturized. Because cold weather is no joke, and your first line of defense starts with your skincare routine.
These masks are perfect for combatting the cold and also have some very “fall” ingredients in some cases. There’s a pumpkin sheet mask, a mask that’s full of cranberry seed — just for example. But, considering these can work wonders for the skin — keeping it hydrated, healthy and glowing — you’ll really want to start using these year-round.
Scroll through the slideshow to see just a few of our favorite face masks for fall (and beyond)!
1. Pumpkin Sheet Mask
Pumpkin 24K Gold Mask, $8, Sephora
This pumpkin-infused mask works to remedy dry, dull skin and will even help make sure your skin's texture is soft and smooth. Win-win-win.
2. Charcoal Sheet Mask
UO Sheet Mask, $3, Urban Outfitters
This sheet mask is loaded with salicylic acid and charcoal powder which will help clean pores and keep blemishes at bay. Acne and dry skin aren't a great combo — so this mask should help in your efforts to prevent both!
3. Honey Warming Mask
Honey Potion Renewing Hydration Mask, $56, Sephora
Apply this to your face and massage it with your fingers to get the full effect. It warms as you massage it into the skin, and that's just the kind of thing you need now that it's chilly out. Once it's rubbed in, sit down with a cup of tea for 10-15 minutes and let it work its magic. Don't you feel cozy just thinking about it? Once you wash it off, you'll feel relaxed and your skin will be all the better for it!
4. Glossier Duo
Mask Duo, $40, Glossier
You can't beat a combo like this! The gentle clay mask goes on first to nourish and gently exfoliate skin. Then, the ultra moisturizing moon mask goes on second. In total, this is 40 minutes out of your day, so it'll feel like you got a spa treatment without ever leaving your house.
5. Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Mask
Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask, $39, Sephora
This nutrient-rich mask is great for all skin types and will leave you absolutely glowing! You may not be laying out in the sun this season, but that doesn't mean your skin's radiance has to suffer, you know?
6. Aztec Clay Mask
Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay, $5.09, Amazon
A clay mask can come in handy for cleaning pores, eliminating pimples and tightening the skin to keep it looking healthy and youthful. It's five bucks on Amazon — so there's really no reason not to get a jar of this stuff in your beauty bag.
7. AHA & BHA Clarity Mask
Blue Tansy Clarity Mask, $48, Herbivore Botanicals
A formula like this promotes skin clarity and is great for those looking to rid skin of blemishes, clear up dark spots and exfoliate. The AHA and BHA work together to get the skin clear and looking amazing.
8. MUD Face & Body Mask
MUD Immunity Wellness Bath + Body Mask, $12, Urban Outfitters
A mask that can be used on your entire body goes a step above and beyond. You can literally rejuvenate from head to toe with this in your possession.
Your entire face doesn't always need the same things. So, treat your T-Zone and your cheeks differently with a mask that can do it all. One side is for any oily areas and the other is clay and extremely moisturizing, so slather it on it a way that works for your skin type.
10. Mineral Peel Mask
Mineral Peel Face, $44, O.R.G. Skincare
We get it — sometimes it's hard to find the time to take 20 minutes or more to do a face mask, and that's part of what makes this peel so great. It only has to be left on for a matter of seconds before it can be gently removed. It'll reveal a new, healthy layer of skin so no one will know you were too busy to even heat up your Chinese food leftovers last night!
Don't neglect your skin this fall! Make sure you rack up on some of these to make sure you can brace the cold that winter will bring, looking flawless in the process!
