This Mask Is the Solution for Reactive Skin

Usher luminous, well-rested and calm skin into your life with this replenishing hygge-approved mask

Hygge: It's the Danish term for the feeling of warmth, comfort and coziness (and it's pronounced hoo-gah, by the way). It's the contentedness you feel when your house is full of family and good food for the holidays, or the peace you feel sitting on a patio as you watch the sun set with a glass of wine in hand. It's a concept that has taken the wellness world by storm, and now it's seeping into skin care. After all, what makes you feel more content and comfortable than having a great skin day, every day? And, there is no one better to help you get your hygge on than Danish skin-care expert Ole Henriksen.
Ole Henriksen's newest offering is the perfect first step to achieving hygge. Long-time devotees of the brand will recognize the Hygge HydraClay Detox Mask, $32, as the third step of the Power Peel Transforming Facial System, designed to soothe and calm the skin. Except now, you can buy a whole tube of it, meaning you can comfort and nourish your skin whenever the need arises.

For those with reactive skin, trying new products isn't exactly fun. The sensitive-skinned among us never know when a scrub or cream is going to trigger a reaction that includes redness, peeling and irritation. But don't worry -- this is a unique blend of oil and clay that won't result in a dried-on mask typical of clay-based formulas. With kaolin clay and five botanical oils, this mask hydrates as much as it purges pores of dirt and oil. The cloud-like, whipped texture glides on like a dream, and never makes skin tight or uncomfortable.
Danish citizens are the happiest people on the planet, according to the experts who publish the World Happiness Report. And with a concept like hygge as a pillar of cultural identity, it's not hard to see why. For glowing, happy-as-a-Dane skin, treat your skin care routine like a nightly moment of indulgence. After a thorough cleansing, apply a layer of the creamy mask to your skin, taking a moment to breathe in oils like jojoba, grape seed, sunflower, borage and sweet almond. Allow the added chamomile flower extract (a proven skin soother) to wash over your senses. After about ten minutes (during which you can engage in hygge-friendly activities like lighting candles to create a personal oasis, sipping tea as you watch reruns of your favourite show or drawing the ultimate relaxing bath), wash off the mask with warm water. The kaolin, botanical oils and vitamin E sweep away impurities, but leave skin feeling clean and nourished, with a visibly evened skin tone.

And just like that, you're on your way to living your best hygge life -- because there's nothing more soothing than feeling comfortable in your own skin.
