Face masks are one of the beauty treatments that I must do weekly. Even if I don’t have time to do my full facial routine, a quick face mask makes me feel refreshed, ready to ‘face’ (HAH) the world.
There are hundreds of masks out there to choose from, but here are my top three. I use each one for different reasons, whether my skin is feeling dull, dry or congested. Take your pick!
FOR TROUBLE SKIN: Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask
This is a lovely solution for when your skin is feeling a bit spotty or congested. If I don’t eat as well as I should I get chin blemishes, and this sorts them out in no time at all. It really clears and tightens my pores, leaving my skin totally fresh and clean. Love it. Clinique Pore Refining Charcoal Mask, £23.
FOR DRY SKIN: Neal’s Yard Rose Balm
This is my go-to overnight product to use when my face is dry and thirsty. I apply it last thing at night, after a Caudalie serum, and give my skin a lovely massage in front of the TV (Broad City! Love it). Bonus points for using this facial massager from The Body Shop. When I wake up in the morning my skin is plumped up and the dryness is gone. Definitely recommended, if only for the beautiful sensory experience when applying (the smell is divine). Neal’s Yard Rose Balm, £39 (ish).
FOR DULL SKIN: Caudalie Peeling Glycolic Mask
My number one for when my skin’s feeling a bit dull and stuck-in a rut, Caudalie’s Glycolic Peel mask uses glycolic acid to gently exfoliate and renew the skin. Gentler than a scrub, you leave it on for a quick ten minutes before rinsing off to reveal brighter, more radiant skin. A staple in anyone’s weekly skincare routine. Caudalie Peeling Glycolic Mask, £22.
