Pamper your skin with latest Facial Masks

There are snail masks. There are charcoal masks. There are even $330 designer lace masks. Just when I thought you’d seen every mask there was to see, we came across Montreal-based Nannette de Gaspé’s dry masks—a new “wearable skincare technology” that provides all the benefits of the goopy sheet masks we love, minus the mess. It launched in Selfridges last May but just landed stateside in Barneys this week. Here, everything you need to know about the next big thing in skin care:

Not just for your face

Each mask contains 87 percent active ingredients, including brightening tetrapeptides and wrinkle-fighting marine extracts, dry-printed onto a super-lightweight “techstile” fabric sourced from Japan. Wet masks, in comparison, typically contain 85 percent water and glycerine, according to De Gaspé.

Body Temperature activates skin cells

Thanks to the masks’ proprietary technology that allows ingredients embedded in the fabric to penetrate layers of skin once activated by humidity, body temperature, or pH.

Long lasting effect

The filler-free formula doesn’t just sit on the surface of your face and then evaporate as they do with most sheet masks. Instead, it bonds with the epidermis and continues releasing skin-boosting product into the skin for six to eight hours following application.
