    The One For Sensitive Skin

    Sensitive skin needs TLC and Peter Thomas Roth’s cucumber gel masque knows how to give it.

    This cooling mask reads like a who’s who of friendly, antibacterial ingredients. Aloe vera aids skin regeneration, soothes inflammation, and acts as a natural astringent. Chamomile calms skin following sun exposure, peels, waxing, facials and extractions. Meanwhile bilberry, papaya and pineapple extracts create an antioxidant cocktail that moisturizes, exfoliates and protects against free radical damage and UV rays.

    No wonder approximately one Peter Thomas Roth cucumber gel masque is sold every minute worldwide!

    The One For Dry Skin

    Once a humble south Korean trend, the sheet mask has become known as a facial in a packet. Where a traditional face mask cleanses and exfoliates, the sheet mask intensely hydrates and leaves behind a layer of serum. Erno Laszlo’s White Marble Sheet Mask is testament to this. Sure it looks like something from Phantom of the Opera, but it’s soaked in powerful ingredients and feels like silk.

    Soybean extract, which has long since been used in Asian skincare formulas, works to naturally brighten the complexion; vitamin C clarifies skin and delivers on antioxidants and yuzu, a zesty fruit commonly found in Japan, leaves skin smoother, clearer and more radiant.

    This face mask serves as an excellent addition to your hand luggage. Wear one on a long haul flight to prevent dehydration and ensure you step off the plane fresh-faced.

    The One For Combination Skin

    Astara’s Violet Flame Enzyme Mask is an action-packed ingredient story.

    Natural fruit enzymes target your T-zone, sloughing away dead skin cells and extracting debris trapped in pores. These super active enzymes also stimulate circulation, bringing available nutrients, oxygen and moisture to any dry patches on the skin’s surface.

    Expect a tingly sensation, which just means the mask is hard at work removing toxins and giving skin texture a boost.

    The One For Dull Skin

    The Wei Brown Sugar Ready Glow Exfoliating Mask is packed with brown sugar, which is a natural humectant, absorbing moisture from the environment and depositing it into your skin. It also contains glycolic acid, which fights bacteria and supports cell turnover,

    The recipe also contains kakadu plum: only the highest natural source of vitamin C out there (100x more than an orange) and a natural skin brightener.

    If there was ever a face mask that was going to leave you looking bright-eyed and bushy-tailed, this is it.

    The One For Anti-Ageing

    The Sundari Gotu Kola and Indian Asparagus Mask is a herb-based powerhouse, highly concentrated with peptide actives which act as no entry signs for wrinkles and turbocharge elasticity. It’s also the harlot of face masks.

    The gel formula is enriched with gotu kola oil, which helps activate tissue regeneration, collagen synthesis and blood circulation, and Indian asparagus. In Hindu medicine, Indian asparagus is used to promote overall health and vitality and also works as an aphrodisiac. In Sanskrit, the ingredient’s other name, Shatavari, means ‘She who possesses 100 husbands.’

    Scented with nothing but essential oils, this face mask and a silk slip is the starter pack for a long, healthy marriage.

    The One For Mature Skin

    Peel masks are designed to stimulate the blood supply and tighten, making them ideal for mature skin.

    June Jacobs’ Perfect Pumpkin Peeling Enzyme Masque has a kick to it. It’s probably the pumpkin enzyme, which digests dead surface cells, aids cellular turnover and enhances the skin’s tone and texture.

    Pumpkin is naturally rich in essential fatty acids, Vitamins A and C, as well as zinc, a mineral that heals tissues and an antioxidant that shields against the formation of free radicals.

    Using this face mask is like pressing Ctrl + Z on the ageing process.

    The One For All Skin Types

    Skin has mood swings too, and you might find your skin type changes from time to time. Luckily, there’s a face mask for that.

    The Farmhouse Fresh Splendid Dirt Mud Mask stars Illite and Bentonite clays, organic pumpkin puree and active yoghurt cultures that deep clean pores and improve the appearance of broken capillaries and uneven skin tones.

    You’ll start buzzing when you apply this naturally formulated face mask: that’s just oxygenation and circulation increasing, which eventually leaves skin calm, soothed, chilled.
