Our complexions can be tricky to tame, and their needs can vary so much depending on the time of year and occasion. Sometimes our skin is dry and we’re after a hit of moisture, other times it’s oily, troublesome and spot-prone. What are we to do?!
Enter the face mask: your does-it-all fix for a host of different complexion concerns.
By building up a ‘wardrobe’ of masks, in a variety of different formulations, you can be sure you’ll always have the right product to hand, whatever the problem. Let us talk you through the basics to help kickstart your collection.
When your skin’s feeling parched, opt for a rich, creamy formula to help rehydrate. Layer on thickly and take a little time to relax. Some can even be left on overnight, ready to remove in the morning.
Voila! That dewy finish is within your grasp.
To brighten up a dull-looking complexion, we love to go for exfoliating textures that work to buff away dirt and dead skin cells. Lightly massage these glow-revealing products into your skin, then remove with a warm cloth and water for that fresh-faced feeling.
Tackle imperfections with pore-refining formulas that help to balance your skin’s appearance. Reducing impurities is a great option for troublesome, blemish-prone complexions. Layer on as thick as you wish, avoiding the delicate eye area, then remove with warm water when you’re ready.
Instant boost masks
For a quick, pre-party fix, nothing’s better than a sheet mask or a fizzy, foaming formula with a vitamin boost. Look for concentrated ingredients that promote a radiant result and make them the first port of call when you’re getting ready for a night on the tiles.
