We all want to take care of our skin, but it’s easy for everyday life to get in the way. If we’re feeling tired, dehydrated or run-down it always shows in our skin, so every now and then it’s important to give it some extra love and care. Face masks are a great way to do this; offering intensive treatment while giving you an opportunity to sit back and relax. There are plenty of different options available to treat different skin problems so here at HQHair we’re going to give you some help to find the best face mask for you and your skin.
If you’re skin is looking dry and parched, it’s time to inject some moisture. Look for a mask that promises to hydrate and give your face a natural glow. Try the NARS Aqua Gel Luminous Mask (£29.00); it contains the exclusive Light Reflecting Complex which is designed to restore radiance and reflect light like a prism. Apply a generous amount to clean skin and leave for 5-10 minutes before wiping off with a tissue. If you’re looking for a more intense moisturising treatment you can apply this mask before bed and leave it on overnight.
If you suffer from oily skin and often find your makeup slides around or looks too shiny then go for a face mask that will remove the excess oil and sooth your stressed skin. First Aid Beauty Skin Rescue Purifying Mask (£17.60) is a great option; it’s made with Red Clay which helps to draw out impurities for a clearer complexion and Rosemary Leaf Oil to tighten pores and tone the skin. Used regularly, around twice a week, it will also help regulate oil production. Simply apply a thin layer to clean, dry skin and leave to dry for about 20 minutes, then just peel it off!
If pesky breakouts are your problem, you need a mask that will fight the cause of the blemishes without being overly drying or harsh on the rest of your face. One of the best face masks on the market is GLAMGLOW Very Gorgeous Super-Mud Clearing Treatment (£34.99), with its innovative formula that tackles everything from spots and pimples to blackheads, razor burn and ingrown hairs! The Super Mud mask is fantastic at de-clogging pores but also reduces redness and smooths the skin for a fresh and youthful complexion. For best results take a small amount of the mask and apply all over your face, starting at the t-zone and working outwards, leave on for up to 20 minutes and then rinse with warm water. Alternatively use it as a spot treatment on specific areas of the face as needed.
Whether it’s overdosing on heavy makeup or you’re feeling the effects of environmental pollution, it’s easy for your skin to start feeling dull, congested or overworked. You’re looking for a deep-cleaning mask that will wash away all the inevitable build-up and impurities. Try Pür Minerals Dirty Girl Mudd Mask (£18.00) which is formulated with natural clay to cleanse and clarify, salicylilc acid to gently exfoliate and cucumber extract to soothe and calm, all without drying-out your skin. Apply the mask to clean skin and allow it to dry until cracks appear. Rinse thoroughly with warm water to reveal a fresher, more radiant complexion.
If your skin is looking tired and feeling a little rough, but you just don’t have time for a long pampering session, why not try a face mask that works while you sleep? Korres Wild Rose Sleeping Facial (26.00) is packed with 95% natural ingredients including Wild Rose Fruit with its high concentration of vitamin C for repairing fine lines, and Wild Rose Oil which is rich in linolenic acid to help moisturise and soften. Simply apply this mask all over your face before bed, leave it to work overnight and wake up to softer, brighter, more radiant skin (there’s no need to rinse it off!)
