5 FACE MASKS THAT WILL TRANSFORM YOUR SKIN

If you’re one of those people who forgo face masks as part of your regular skin care routine, then keep reading.

Face masks are an important part of any skin care regimen because they offer an added skin boost from the usual cleanser and moisturiser routine.

Sure, they can seem somewhat inconvenient for the time-poor — they are an extra skin-care step that requires up to 20 minutes of downtime and sometimes follow with a rather vigorous rinse. So, why bother?

Here’s why: these treatments can leave your complexion hydrated, glowing and radiant — much like a pricey facial would — in about the same time it takes to blow-dry your hair.

But with masks varying from oil-absorbing clays to hydrating cloth sheets, it’s easy to get confused about which one is best for your skin.

How to decide? Here, you’ll find your new face mask cheat sheet…

1. ORIGINS GINZING REFRESHING FACE MASK

Got dull, tired skin? Wake it up with this icy cool gel mask. The gel-like texture features coffee beans to energise skin, cucumber to cool the complexion and hoelen mushroom to soothe. The result? Your skin’s get-up-and-glow is rapidly restored within just 10 quick minutes. Worth every second.

2. SK-II FACIAL TREATMENT MASK

Considered the gold standard of sheet masks, this is the only cloth soaked with Pitera – a unique combination of vitamins, minerals and amino and organic acids. It works to clear the complexion and give your skin a “holy-hell-it-has-to-be-seen-to-be-believed” type of radiance. Still want proof? Just look at Kate Bosworth and Cate Blanchett.

3. BIODERMA SENSIBIO SOOTHING MASK

If your skin is so sensitive, you’re sceptical about masks then meet your new best friend. This mask, specifically designed for sensitive skin types, instantly soothes feelings of overheating, redness and tightness while restoring radiance. It also raises the skin’s tolerance threshold – meaning the skin becomes more resistant and better protected against external aggressors, making it less reactive. Winner.

4. NUDE MIRACLE MASK

Can’t get your skin’s texture to look even? We’ve found the solution. This dual-action exfoliating mask blends natural AHAs with rice beads to transform tired and uneven skin to gorgeous and glowing. Pores are refined, and skin renewed, revealing a flawlessly smooth complexion. Simply use a small amount and apply to clean skin 1 – 2 times a week. Leave on for just 5 minutes and remove thoroughly with warm water. If you feel it tingling, then you know this mask is working its magic.

5. GLAMGLOW THIRSTY MUD SKINCARE TREATMENT

If you have dry skin, you’ll want a mask that deeply hydrates, like GlamGlow. This luxurious formula provides extreme hydration for instant results and long term benefits. Used 2 – 3 times a week, this bad boy is suitable for men and women of all ages and skin types. It can even be used as a post-shaving treatment. After 10 – 20 minutes, you can remove the excess with a tissue or massage any remaining residue into the skin and neck (never forget your neck!) for a seriously indulgent experience.
