Is your skin looking exhausted? This time of year mine goes totally ‘meh’ when my summer glow wears off – thanks to depleted energy levels, colder weather and the central heating onslaught, my skin looks down-right tired. It puts me off updating my new season makeup because, well, I’m just not feeling my face.
Happily there’s a simple solution in the form of a facial fix without the price tag: the at-home face mask. All those in desperate need of transitional TLC, read on…
1. plump & glow
Ashling-approved, this serum sheet mask is jam-packed with hyaluronic acid and comes in a bumper x4 pack that will last you a month.
I love the format of this vitamin C rich mask: gel base + treatment powder = a rubbery gel that dries airtight to your skin for maximum penetration. Futuristic.
Ali’s fave, this light formula transforms with skin’s natural heat, instantly breaking into hydrating water droplets.
2. detox & renew
A powder mask rich in antioxidants and minerals that deploys a potent blend of organic seaweeds, organic plants, organic tea and clay to deep clean skin.
Rhassoul is a Moroccan lava clay with high absorption properties to purify skin. Great value for money – a little goes a very long way.
3. soothe & calm
Puffy & sensitive, unsightly redness, uneven skin tone? Then these are for you…
Increase skin’s ability to cope with stress, leading to long term well-being of your skin. ‘Nuff said.
Oooh, you’ve got to love a sheet mask with a jelly texture. It’s pretty expensive for a one-shot use but I promise it’s worth every sensitive skin penny.
Rich in Avène Thermal Spring water, this mask is intensely nourishing and helps to restore skin’s natural barriers.
