Exfoliating masks

They often come in clay form and many include powerhouse ingredients like Salicylic and Glycolic Acid. For a quick fix that also works to improve your skin over time, try GLAMGLOW's YouthMud.

Origins' new Hello Calm mask is perfect for calming and soothing your skin while destressing the senses.

Sheet masks
Originally a K-beauty export, sheet masks have long since moved to the mainstream. They're easy to apply wherever you are, which makes them ideal for travelling or anytime you don't want the hassle of washing one off. La Mer's contains a full 30ml of the bestselling Treatment Lotion for a surge of hydration.

Overnight masks
Your skin works hardest to repair itself while you sleep, so make the most of its natural recovery cycle by applying an overnight mask. A restorative mask like the Sisley Velvet Sleeping Mask will intensely nourish dry skin and help it to regain its strength, while the Allies of Skin Blemish Sleeping Facial contains alpha-hydroxy-acids to gently exfoliate overnight.
