8 Face Masks You Can Marinate In All Day Long

Make the most of your social distancing.

By: Hannah Baxter

In the interest of looking on the bright side, being stuck inside all day has its advantages when it comes to your beauty game. I know that I have certainly embraced the at-home hours for exploring the various products in my beauty closet. Masks, in particular, have been the ideal thing to help rejuvenate skin that maybe hasn’t seen direct sunlight or fresh air in a hot minute. Better yet when you can leave them on for hours at a time, marinating your skin in brightening, hydrating, and deep-cleansing ingredients.

We’re not talking the acid-based formulas that you 100 percent need to wipe off after the recommended number of minutes—rather, these are the masks you can leave on while you answer emails, tackle that 1,000-piece puzzle, or FaceTime your mom for the third time that day. Your skin deserves that extra TLC right now more than ever. Trust us.

This gentle, clean formula drenches your skin with hydration via hyaluronic acid and squalane, brightens with niacinamide, and keeps irritation at bay with ginger and turmeric extracts.

Alder New York Smoothing Face Mask, $46

Plumping hyaluronic acid and deep-cleansing natural clay will leave your skin looking impossibly clear and supple after 30 minutes or half a day.

Renée Rouleau Bio Calm Repair Masque, $50

Facialist Renée Rouleau is an expert at keeping your skin healthy and vibrant, which is why we love to let her mask hang out for hours at a time on our faces. It’s deeply cooling, super gentle, and appropriate for even the most sensitive or irritated skin types.

Tata Harper Hydrating Floral Mask, $95

Perhaps the most luxe hydrating mask of them all, this mask uses 1,000 different sizes of hyaluronic acid to deeply penetrate the skin, leaving it impossibly supple. It also dries clear so no one is the wiser to your hours of hydration.
