Let’s be real—there are few things better than finally closing your laptop after a long work week, collapsing onto your bed, and wine-ing down for the night. Of course, we’d argue that adding a face mask into the mix is a must for the ultimate night of relaxation—even better if you match your mask to your wine of choice. Whether you’re catching up with friends on FaceTime or enjoying some much-needed “you” time, why not indulge in a little skin care while you’re at it? Keep reading for seven wine and face mask pairings to try on your next self-care night.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #1: ENJOY A GLASS OF ROSÉ AND A ROSY MASK
A classic wine pick, rosé is known for its sweet taste and pretty pink color—which is why it’s the perfect wine to pair with the L’Oréal Paris Age Perfect Cell Renewal Rosy Tone Mask. This powerful gel mask, which also has a soft pink hue, is formulated with AHA and imperial peony and enhanced with a mineral exfoliant. Over time, your skin can become dull and lose color, but this mask works to refresh skin’s rosy tone, leaving you with a healthy glow and a rosy, radiant look.
How to use it: Apply the mask onto clean skin, gently massage over your face with circular motions, leave on for five minutes, and rinse thoroughly with water.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #2: POP SOME CHAMPAGNE WITH AN OVERNIGHT MASK
Sometimes you need to celebrate, whether it’s time for a friend’s birthday Zoom or you’re simply proud of yourself for getting through the day—either way, there’s reason to break out the champagne. And when popping champagne is involved, chances are you’ll be staying up way past midnight. If that’s the case, we recommend pairing your bubbly with an overnight mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Triple Power™ Intensive Overnight Mask. This overnight mask works to combat loss of firmness and elasticity, less defined facial contours, and wrinkles. The leave-on, creamy formula mimics skin’s elasticity, penetrating quickly to form a virtual protective mask to cradle your skin. It’s formulated with Pro-Xylane and centella asiatica and helps visibly transform the look of skin overnight.
How to use it: Apply the mask to cleansed skin before sleeping. Smooth the formula over your face, neck, and jawline until absorbed. Leave on overnight to see results.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #3: RELAX WITH RIESLING AND A COMFORTING MASK
Looking to really have the ultimate night of self-care? Pair a glass of Riesling with a comforting face mask for some serious relaxation. The L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clear & Comfort Face Mask is formulated with three pure clays and seaweed to clear and comfort skin in just 10 minutes. The creamy clay mask provides a luxurious experience while gently yet effectively cleansing skin. You’ll be left with comforted, purified, and healthier-looking skin.
How to use it: Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, avoiding the eye and lip area. Leave on for 10-15 minutes before rinsing with water.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #4: REACH FOR SOME SANGRIA AND AN EXFOLIATING MASK
If you’re in the mood for a nighttime treat that will make you feel like it’s summer and you’re on vacation, you can’t go wrong with a glass of sangria. You can even whip up a pitcher at home if you’re feeling ambitious—otherwise, the pre-made kind will work just fine. With this delicious blend of wine and fruit juices, it’s all about shedding your rough week and looking forward. And that’s why we recommend adding the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Exfoliate & Refining Mask into the mix. Formulated with three-pure clays and red algae, this mask works to exfoliate and refine skin so you can shed dead skin cells, too. Immediately after use, skin’s texture sports a smooth and supple appearance.
How to use it: Apply an even layer onto clean, dry skin and leave on for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove with water using circular motions to exfoliate skin.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #5: KICK YOUR FEET UP WITH MOSCATO AND A DETOX MASK
Want to pamper yourself with a bit of luxury at the end of the week? We totally get it! You can count on a glass of Moscato and a detox mask, like the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Detox & Brighten Mask, to boost your TLC session. Aside from three pure clays, this face mask is formulated with charcoal, which helps to draw out toxins from skin. With just one use, skin will be left feeling smooth, rebalanced, rejuvenated, and refreshed. And if you ask us, that’s just what you need to unwind!
How to use it: Apply an even layer onto clean, dry skin. Leave on for 10-15 minutes then remove with water.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #6: ENJOY A GLASS OF WHITE ZINFANDEL WITH A CLARIFYING MASK
Another excellent wine choice for a calm and peaceful night, a glass of white zinfandel can help you redefine the meaning of chill. And if you want to take your self-care night to the next level, the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Clarify & Smooth Face Mask will set the tone. This offering is formulated with yuzu lemon extract and works to address your skin care concerns for smooth, even, and resurfaced skin.
How to use it: Apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, making sure to avoid the eye and lip areas. Leave on for 10 to 15 minutes and remove with water using circular motions to exfoliate.
WINE AND FACE MASK PAIRING #7: GRAB BOXED WINE AND A MULTI-MASKING KIT
Staying in with your roommate? Be the best roomie possible and share the joys of boxed wine and a multi-masking kit. Grab the L’Oréal Paris Pure-Clay Multi-Mask Clay Tripod Kit, which features three masks formulated with pure clays: a charcoal mask, a red algae mask, and a eucalyptus mask. The charcoal mask works to brighten dull skin, the red algae mask helps exfoliate uneven skin texture, and the eucalyptus mask combats oily areas. You can multi-mask and apply all three or divvy up the masks between you and your roommate.
How to use it: Apply one, two, or three masks to address your skin’s needs.
