Facial masks for your face are like vitamins for your body: a necessity, and they should be used every day – just never the same kind back to back.
You read it right: Use a facial mask EVERY DAY. For example, if you start with a hydrating mask on a Monday, Tuesday’s could be a deep-cleansing mask, followed by an anti-ageing one on Wednesday and so forth. The exceptions: Those with dry skin should use moisturising masks every other day, while oily complexions should opt for a clarifying mask two to three times a week, and intersperse them with whitening, hydrating, anti-aging or soothing ones. Here, a few you can try.
For Tired Skin
Guerlain Abeille Royale Repairing Honey Gel Mask is fresh, gel-textured, and has royal jelly and honey extract to repair, nourish and soothe. $200
For Grease-Clogged Skin
Kose Infinity Pure Advance Deep Clear Mask uses tiny beads to remove surface dead skin and blackheads (massage the cream in a circular motion), and clay to suck up sebum and dirt from pores. $55
For Delicate Skin
La Mer Intensive Revitalizing Mask not only boasts the brand’s signature skin-healing miracle broth, it also has a purifying ferment made of lime tea concentrate and glacial kelp to supposedly neutralise free radical damage caused by stress and pollution. $265
For Tired, Dull skin
Origins Ginzing Refreshing Face Mask cools with its gel texture. It has caffeine to supposedly boost skin cells’ energy output so you’ll look radiant and rosy. $50
