The new face masks your skin is begging you to try
Pick the one that delivers the results you want most
New Idea Contributing Editor / October 19 2017
For a simple and effective way to a glowing complexion, a weekly mask is a must. Masks not only exfoliate, clean and detoxify the skin, but when used as part of your beauty routine they also improve the performance of other products. Serums and creams are better absorbed, leaving you with a clear canvas. Check out the latest releases and buzz-worthy face masks we love right now.
Best for anti-ageing
Mask to try: Aspect Gold Probiotic Sleep Mask
This mask is perfect for mature or dry, dehydrated skin. Simply apply a five-cent sized piece to cleansed skin in an upward motion, leave on for roughly 20 minutes and rinse off before bed. Skin will awaken deeply nourished, soft and supple.
Best for sensitive skin
Mask to try: Trilogy Very Gentle Hydra-Mask
This ultra-gentle nourishing mask is packed with calming ingredients, including macqui berries and sweet almond to help reduce redness and inflammation while deeply hydrating reactive skin.
Best for tired eyes
Mask to try: Blaq Hydrogel Eye Mask
If you’ve had a few too many cocktails on a balmy spring night, or if you’re simply lacking sleep, it tends to show in the eye area. These eye masks with activated charcoal are perfect to de-puff and detox in a mere 15 minutes – perfect to keep the delicate eye area hydrated on long-haul flights, too.
Best for organic skin care lovers
Mask to try: Snow Fox Skin Care Artic Breeze Detox Cooling Mask
Snow Fox Skin Care is aimed at sensitive skin, with no nasties in the ingredients. This 100 per cent cotton detox sheet mask is a multitasking machine. It’s moisturising, tightens pores and is packed with essential oils to extract dirt and build-up from deep within the skin. This is also a great mask to use if you’ve exposed yourself to a little too much sun as it helps repair damaged skin.
Best for those wanting to look glowing and sun-kissed
Mask to try: St. Tropez Self Tan Express Facial Sheet Mask
This single-use sheet mask mixes St. Tropez’s tanning serum with hyaluronic acid to hydrate dry skin while developing a slight tan. The longer you leave it on, the deeper the shade. A moisturising mask and foolproof faux glow in 15 minutes – wow!
