Albion Excia Whitening Charge Serum Mask, $167 for 6 Sheets
You might be familiar with the fact that collagen synthesis slows down as we age. But did you know that collagen fibres also stiffens and turns yellow in a process called glycation? Designed to combat this phenomenon, the Albion Excia range uses kojic acid to target the appearance of dull and sallow skin. As one of the most widely researched brightening ingredients in Japanese skincare products, kojic acid works on all stages of melanin production to promote skin clarity for a luminous glow. If you’re looking for an instant brightening and hydrating fix, try this as each sheet mask is also saturated in moisturising ingredients to plump fine lines and wrinkles as well.

The result: not only is your skin soft and supple when you wake, toxins are purged so dullness gives way to a dewy glow.

With a lightweight, oil-free gel texture, it melts into skin once applied to infuse skin with moisture and calming agents without further aggravating it.
