Nothing helps me wind down like a good face mask. They’re a low-lift form of self-care that allow me to take care of myself with minimal effort. But even though they relax me, I’m sometimes left questioning if my face masks are actually doing anything for my skin. Whenever I use the Lumene Nordic-C Fresh Glow Brightening Gel Mask ($25), though, I don’t have to wonder—I can feel it working.
The second I apply the mask, the subtle tingling sensation confirms that it’s doing its thing (don’t worry—it doesn’t hurt). Its star ingredients are alpha-hydroxy acids, known for their exfoliating powers, and vitamin C-rich wild Arctic cloudberry. This blend of potent actives works to remove dead skin cells and instantly brighten dull skin. In addition, bits of Nordic marigold petals condition the skin (and make the mask look like apricot jam and smell like a bright spring day), and Arctic spring water adds a rush of hydration.
Just swipe the mask onto clean, dry skin once or twice a week, let it sit for five to 10 minutes, and enjoy skin that feels softer and looks more radiant.

AHAs work by dissolving the glue that holds skin cells together, which unclogs pores and improves skin texture. “AHAs are water-soluble and penetrate only the top layer of skin, which is called the epidermis,” Rina Allawh, MD, FAAD, a Pennsylvania-based board-certified dermatologist, previously told Well+Good. Because AHAs don’t penetrate too deeply, they’re great at treating mild acne, fine lines, wrinkles, and hyperpigmentation.
After a long and dry winter, spring is the perfect time to up your exfoliation and revive your complexion. “If a patient’s skin is lacking its usual glow and moisture, I usually have them focus on one gentle exfoliation,” says Ivy Lee, MD, a board-certified dermatologist based in Pasadena, California.
