Travel can be hard on your skin. Airplanes are notorious for their dry, recycled air, but a lot of people don’t realize that many hotels use a similar filtration system, offering travelers no reprieve for their skin upon touchdown.
Lack of hydration can wreak havoc on your skin, and contribute to jetlag. To keep our skin glowing, we love these travel-ready Essence Gel Masks from When.
These single-use masks are made of a bio-cellulose sheet, created from fermented coconut juice (which is known for being an excellent natural hydrator). Other ingredients, such as Swiss Alpine herb extracts, and extracts of grapefruit seed, bamboo stem, pine leaf and ginseng, help to keep skin moisturized and glowing.
The mask is designed to fit all face shapes. Simply remove from the package, and place the mask on clean skin. Remove after 20 to 30 minutes and rub any extra product left on your skin into your face to absorb — no need to rinse!
And since this treatment doesn’t require any water and has minimal clean up, you can do it virtually anywhere — stuck in traffic, on a train or even 30,000 feet up.
Aside from being formulated with tons of good-for-you ingredients, each mask is also made without parabens, sulfates and phthalates.
A four-pack of When Essence Gel Masks retails for $28 (that’s just $7 a treatment), and can be purchased at Sephora.
