Gen Y gets flak for demanding immediate gratification, but when it comes to masking, it’s a characteristic we can all appreciate. These three face masks tap unique technology to impart supe-level skin fast.
1. FOR A MOISTURE BOOST:
The Dr. Dennis Gross Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask is a two-parter: Mix the gel with a powder to create a mask that is so satisfying to peel off. The hyaluronic acid floods the skin with moisture, while the gel removes impurities from the skin’s surface. ($60 for four treatments, at sephora.com).
2. FOR A FAUX FACELIFT:
Lancer Younger Revealing Mask Intense is activated when the retinoid-laced (read “wrinkle-abating”) formula is triggered by a magnetic attraction between the mask and its removal tool. The micro-current dynamic translates into glowing skin. ($310 for four treatments, at sephora.com).
3. TO TIGHTEN LES YEUX:
Nannette de Gaspé Youth Revealed Eyes Masque slips on like a Venetian party mask and is stimulated by gentle massage, which helps the moisturizing ingredients penetrate (without water) to lift and smooth the paper-thin skin around the eyes. ($110, can be used thrice, at nannettedegaspe.com).
