Metallic silver masks are the next best trend Instagram is obsessing over since bubble nails. Not only are these masks picture-worthy, but they also deliver clock-stopping results. Whether you’re fighting off dull looking skin, suffering from dryness, or simply want to feed your complexion's overall glow, there’s a version that will improve the ailments of your epidermis.

The scoop: Metallic silver masks are more than just fun formulas to play with—the color actually serves a purpose. Although no two silver masks are made the same, all metallic masks contain powerhouse ingredients to improve the skin's overall youthful appearance. For instance, the silver color-boosting ingredient, Colloidal Platinum, is popular in silver masks, as it works to improve the skin's elasticity and diminish fine lines.
And it doesn't stop there! From Icelandic kelp to crazy ingredients derived from cactuses, these products below are all infused with unique formulas to promote a youthful, feel-good complexion. Plus, it's the ultimate photo-opp if we've ever seen one!
The Insta-famous Gravity Mud Mask changes from white to chrome—peeling off to leave the skin with a tight and lifted appearance. Plus, it has superstar ingredients like Icelandic kelp to help the skin feel younger and enhance the definition of the skin's natural contours.
This mask purifies pores, removes built up debris and pollutants, and leaves skin feeling smoother and firmer. This is an awesome addition to boost any skincare routine for overall younger-looking skin.
This creamy and rich mask is ultra calming and significantly improves firmness. Fun fact: It uses antioxidant-rich ingredients from Italian tomatoes and the Opuntunia cactus to increase the skin's moisture level.
Infused with an antioxidant blend of Colloidal Platinum (hence the awesome shade of silver) and Malachite extract, this metallic mask works to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, thus improving skin luminosity and stripping away dead skin cells. When you peel it off, you'll find a fresh coat of soft and ultra-glowing skin.
