Wanted: Dermalogica’s Power Recovery Masque

Give me your tired, your parched, your wind- or sunburnt skin. Often when travelling, our regular skincare routine can’t keep up with the curveballs thrown its way. Whether your skin is feeling the heat from sunshine and salt water, dried out from stale plane air, or taken a beating from the frigid winds on the slopes, there is salvation in a tube.

This mask does incredible things to soothe and calm stressed skin. Pumped full of vitamins A, C and E, this ultra-replenishing, antioxidant-rich mask gets to work immediately upon application. Formulated without artificial fragrances and colours, it also has a pleasant herbaceous smell (must be the licorice root or the lemon peel) that’s nice for gents, too.

The Dermalogica line was created in the 1980s with a health-first, beauty-second mandate. All products are manufactured in the U.S. and never tested on animals, and their formulations abstain from “beauty” ingredients or cheap fillers, so a bit of product goes a long way.

This super rich mask helps skin recover from damage and promotes healthy tissue regeneration, so apply it to a clean face and relax for 10 to 15 minutes as its restorative powers get to work. You’ll notice a difference in one use — and a big difference over a week.
