5 FEB DETOX FAVES

We’re in the depths of winter and our skin is taking a beating from cold weather, and hot heating. This is a great time to invest in a good Face Mask to use once or twice a week to get your skin looking the best it can look. Below are my ultimate favourite detox face masks, that I regularly use on my clients before Red Carpet events.

SUPER ACIDS X-TREME ACID RUSH PEEL

Selfridges £75

Best for: the night before a party

For an instant quick fix, apply this before going out, it quickly brings skin back to life, giving an even tone and layer to apply make-up on. BUY

“A potent combination of azelaic, glycolic and lactic acids effectively exfoliate and retexture, revealing a new layer of skin with the appearance of imperfections and fine lines and wrinkles reduced. A complex of pronalen fruit acids and powerful prozymex enzymes brighten and refine, reducing the appearance of age spots, skin blotches and uneven skin tone” – Rodial

REN GLYCOLACTIC RADIANCE RENEWAL MASK

Feel Unique £32

Best for: mid-week mask

Exfoliating, brightening and clarifying, apply this mask for 10 – 15 minutes; you will feel a slight tingle sensation as the life enzymes get working on dissolving dead skin cells. I have used this for years and it is still one of my favourites in my kit. BUY

“This four fruit-acid complex formula removes dead skin cells to renew your complexion, reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and combating blackheads and blemishes” – Ren Skincare

RODIAL SUPER ACIDS X-TREME HANGOVER MASK

Selfridges £45

Best for: after a night out

This is better for oily skin, to remove impurities and detox from the night before! Apply and rinse before bed and the following morning your skin looks more refined and uncongested. BUY

“A triple action rub off clay mask to deeply cleanse, exfoliate and restore a radiant looking complexion. Pronalen™ fruit acids gently exfoliate and retexture whilst age-defying laracare® and argireline hexapeptide help to minimise the appearance of fine lines for skin that appears lifted with improved skin tone and texture. This is the perfect post-party recovery clay face mask to revitalise tired looking skin and draw out impurities” – Rodial

CHANTECAILLE JASMINE & LILY HEALING MASK

SpaceNK £60

Best for: sore & sensitive skin

This is ideal for older or more sensitive skin as it really does, exactly what it says. It is such a gentle product, skin feels nourished afterwards, it is less exfoliating and more plumping and hydrating. BUY

“Doubling as a rich, calming night cream, this soothing mask revives dull, dry complexions. Specially created to protect sensitive skin, it works brilliantly to calm and hydrate even sunburned, jet-lagged or wind-chapped skin.” – Space NK

GLAMGLOW YOUTHMUD TINGLE EXFOLIATE TREATMENT

SpaceNK £25-50

Best for: nights out

This is another brilliant one to apply the night you are going out as it instantly removes dead skin cells, dries and shrinks pores and is incredibly quick! Apply the clay to the skin and it slowly dries, removing excess oils with it, as you wash the mask away, gently rub and it removes dead skin cells with it. BUY

“When you need great skin and a glowing complexion in 10 minutes.  This performance driven super mask is an absolute must for those who seek the highest quality ingredients and exceptional results, even if you have never used a mask before Glamglow is unique. It doesn’t just take care of one skin concern, it delivers everything you need for great skin, whatever your skin type” – Space NK

Try and remember to apply a face mask once a week, or at least before an evening out. Make-up performs so much better on skin that is rid of dead cells and in great condition! For more beauty tips click here.
