We’re huge fans of masks here at Avant skincare, not just because of how satisfying and soothing they feel against the skin but how effective they are in treating a variety of skin concerns – everything from dullness, to hyper pigmentation and tightening tight pores and wrinkles. Dr. Deirdre Hooper, Clinical Assistant Professor of Dermatology, Louisiana State University, New Orleans: "Face masks are occlusive—they blanket the skin and drive products in deeply. Masks can deliver higher concentrations of active ingredients to plump, hydrate, and balance the skin."
Although luxury treatments such as spas, massages and super high end facials (think hydra facials) are up there with the best of self-indulgence, who can resist the pleasure of a great face mask, especially when prepped in the comfort of your own home?
There’s only one con for masks. The options can seem increasingly overwhelming as there are thousands of masks for every skin concern, person and price point rom traditional clay and charcoal to the newly popular sheet masks. That’s why we decided to present our masks that offer the best solutions for most skin problems. Below are skin healing and nourishing Avant masks for brighter and younger skin:
