The Best Summer Face Masks

We all may have been counting down the days until the summer season began. But we think it’s safe to say that none of us were exactly looking forward to the adverse effects the heat may cause to our skin.

For many, the summer sun’s heat may cause our skin to feel and look dry, oily, or otherwise cause patchy-looking areas that we’d rather not risk a pool/beach lounge for. However, if your sensitive skin keeps you hesitant about enjoying the sun and getting outdoors, then a summer face mask might be just the thing to give your face the protection and healthy glow you’re after this season.


And while many face masks may use ingredients that don’t fall under the umbrella of clean beauty, we’ve researched and gathered some of the best products your skin can benefit from. The following masks refrain from using heavy ingredients like parabens, formaldehyde, and talc while embracing a vegan standard and using all-natural ingredients like pineapple and papaya enzymes, aloe barbadensis leaf juice, and much more. Check them out!



The first summer face mask that came across our radar is from our client Versed, and it’s called “Doctor’s visit: instant resurfacing mask.” As their site will share, this product is “free from parabens, silicones, sulfates, and 1,350+ ingredients that have questionable data.”

It’s the perfect starting place to rejuvenate your skin and get the feel of a facial without having to leave your house or pay the expert fee. It’s also great for aging and dull skin and has been shown to leave your skin feeling brighter, smoother, and rejuvenated.



While Versed’s face mask is perfect for resetting your skin as it looks to take on the summer heat, Dr. Barabara Strum’s face mask from SpaceNK can provide you with a face mask that can help you throughout the week.

Using ingredients like chamomilla recutita flower extract, and radish root ferment filtrate, this mask helps nourish your skin and “calm complex complexions.” And because you can use it up to 2-3x a week, you can schedule yourself for an in-home facial whenever the sun’s total feels too heavy.


Overtime Mask

Our final summer mask suggestion can be found right on the shelves of Sephora. It’s the Summer Friday’s mask. As part of Sephora’s clean product guarantee, this product does not use any banned or restricted ingredients. Instead, it uses many all-natural ingredients, such as pumpkin and apricot seed powder.

Perfect for many different skin types, this product can clear away dead skin cells and improve dullness while giving you the ultimate summer glow.


Embrace the Glow!

While the sun can leave many harsh effects on our skin, there are many ways to overcome or avoid them altogether! You can embrace clean beauty and get the desired results by steering clear of beauty products that use harmful or banned ingredients.

With face masks from Versed, SpaceNK, and Sephora, which utilize only the best of all-natural ingredients, you can rejuvenate your skin and get the summer glow just by staying prepared!
