Cleanse Renew Moisturise: 3 Masks
I’m always on the hunt for Face masks that “actually do Something” and deliver results – that make a visible difference, and with more time spent at home during the winter weather I find that’s the perfect opportunity to pop one on.
So here are 3 face Mask favourites because they are all: relatively purse friendly, natural based (paraben & mineral oil free) and deliver results.
But firstly how do face masks work ? Well Regular cleansing will remove surface dirt and grime, but only a face mask will actually draw out impurities from beneath the top layers of the epidermis. Face Masks help exfoliate the dead layers of the epidermis and unclog, rehydrate or renew your skin (depending on the mask type) thus improving the effectiveness of your daily beauty items.
Aesop Parsley Seed Cleansing Mask
This mask is an anti-oxidant clarifying mask that is designed for frequent use (if needed) and is suitable for all skin types it utilises kaolin and bentonite clay (a super clay) combined with Parsley Seed, Aloe Vera, Rosehip Seed and Evening Primrose. This mask helps to decongest skin by unclogging and deep cleansing pores (so it will also help reduce blemishes – not acne) It gives the skin a lovely squeaky clean feeling and smooth touch once removed and as with all Aesop products the fragrance is just divine. A real pamper potion. Aesop Parsley Seed Mask £27
Kimberly Sayer Hydrating Anti oxidant Facial Mask
This mask is quite unique as in it’s a leave on mask designed for use twice a week. I prefer to use it as an overnight mask but as long as you don’t have breakout prone skin this could be used as a pre make up treatment or better still pop on during a make up free moment. This mask delivers results comparable to stronger masks that contain AHAs (acids that take off the dead skin cells, but that come with some contraindications) the results are remarkable smooth soft rejuvenated skin. This mask is suitable for all but oily and skin is brilliantly effective. Kimberly Sayer Hydrating Anti oxidant Facial Mask £21.60
NUXE Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute
The NUXE moisturising mask Creme Fraiche de Beaute is a lovely little quick fix – it only needs 10 minutes so it’s perfect if you’re in a rush. It’s not too heavy for sensitive or break out prone skin but still concentrated enough to restore, soothe and moisturise. This mask is fragranced with orange blossom which is quite refreshing and reminiscent of summer. It leaves skin fresh and supple (note: this item is only 80% natural for those who prefer totally green/natural products) NUXE Masque Creme Fraiche de Beaute £19.50
