We all know that getting into the habit of cleansing, toning & moisturising twice daily is the best thing you can do for your skin. But what about when your skin needs that little extra something or a pick me up to ensure that your skin is at its best?

Let’s go through a few different skin types and issues and the best mask available for them.

Dry Skin

Elemis Exotic Cream Moisturising mask is a light creamy mask containing a dynamic blend of Mimosa, amino-acid rich Honey, soothing Samphire, Orange and Bergamot. These work together to leave skin ultra-moisturised and enriched. For optimum penetration of its active ingredients, the mask may be left on overnight.

These super hydrating sheet masks, developed with patented hydro-gel technology, give instant results to dry or dehydrated skin types. After use skin is left ultra-hydrated, plump and packed with youthful vitality. The breathable sheet traps moisture in the skin, helping the active ingredients to penetrate deeper into the skin. Can be used a few times a week and especially before a special occasion to give your skin an immediate boost.
