Not able to go for your usual beauty treatments? No trouble! I’m sharing my most highly recommended face masks for at-home facials that are perfect for ensuring your skin remains emaculate between facials and until you’re able to begin your routine appointments again.
I’ve actually been through two of these which is really something considering there is so much product in the packaging. This mask goes on to the skin like a mousse that dries into a clay form mask. It contains probiotics so it’s brilliant at enriching your skin while it cleanses and minimises your pores.
This is another clay mask in my collection that I absolutely love and cherish. One of my bridesmaids, Ana, gave this to me when she came to stay with me a while back and I can see why she recommended it. It’s a traditional clay mask that really removes impurities from the skin and leaves it beautifully cleansed and enriched with the minerals from the clay. In addition to its cleansing properties, it also contains papaya enzymes which gently exfoliate your skin truly giving your skin a beautiful luminous effect. This is a real winner for me.
This mask has a gel-like substance that you peel off your skin once it is dry. Gosh I love peel-off masks! This mask acts like a magnet for any dirt or pollutants on your skin and pulls them right out. This isn’t anything like those dreadful black pore masks that are extremely painful to remove and really pull at the skin. This is very soft and very gentle and I find it adds such a lovely radiance after I’ve pulled off my mask.
When your skin is feeling really dry and tight due to lack of hydration, look no further. This is an intense moisturising treatment. Just a little goes a long way and if you apply this overnight, you will wake up with skin as soft as a baby’s bottom. This mask is an absolute favourite of mine when our very dry winters set in and it gives my skin all the nourishment it needs.
If you’re looking for a gentle skin treatment to firm the skin and prevent fine lines, this is the treatment you need to give a little love to your skin. This is also an overnight treatment which is applied over your nighttime skin care routine as a sweet little extra. Its botanical ingredients are wonderful for smoothing the skin.
This is another mask that I’ve repurchased. This is another overnight moisturising mask that is an essential for me. So much so that I actually keep it in my bedside drawer. Its thicker than a moisturiser but lighter than the Elizabeth Arden 8 Hour Miracle Moisturiser so it’s the perfect middle ground when I’m looking to increase the hydration in my skin. I use this mask frequently and my skin drinks in the moisture. The next morning, I can always notice a big difference. Love this mask!
This may not be a mask but this little tool is such a lovely thing to use when you’re doing at-home facials. I keep mine in the fridge and in the mornings when I’m sipping on my tea or coffee, I’ll roll out my skin and it feels heavenly! The cold stone instantly reduces swelling in the face but by rubbing it you’re also increasing the blood circulation in the skin which gives it a glow and plumps it up. In essence, it’s yoga for your face and I highly recommend it! It’s definitely worth using when you’re pampering yourself with a mask too.
When you feel that you need to take a little time to pamper your skin, I’d recommend multimasking. Perhaps start off by steaming your face to open the pores, use Elizabeth Arden Detox Peel Off Mask for the first light cleanse followed by a deeper cleanse using the the Caudalie Instant Detox Mask. Roll out the skin with the Rose quartz facial roller and finish off with the La Melle Serra Lipid Recovery Face Mask and leave it to sink in overnight. By morning, you will have such radiant, nurished and hydrated skin that you will be positively glowing!
