Best Face Masks

by Emma Stoddart |

Packed with hard-working ingredients that deliver a powerful punch, face masks are a great addition to any skincare routine. Whether you want to tackle breakouts, dehydration, fine lines or irritation - there's a face mask out there for every skincare concern.

Then there's the self-care factor. 'Me' time might seem like the stuff of legend, particularly if you're trying to juggle home schooling with working from home, countless Zoom meetings with childcare, you get the picture. But a little time, even a matter of minutes, devoted to yourself pays dividends when it comes to restoring relaxation and calm. A good face mask is a great way to get into a weekly beauty ritual.

Invest in one you love and the prospect of applying it will loom like a bright light on the horizon. Want to take things a step further? Lock that bathroom door, run a bath and apply your face mask while you're enjoying a soak.

Alice Henshaw is a leader in cosmetic injectable and rejuvenation treatments which has led Harley Street Injectables into one of the most sought-after practices in London. She created Skincycles as she struggled to find products with the level of high quality ingredients she was after. ' I initially used my clinic biocellulose masks on my clients after invasive treatments and I never knew it would be such a sell out!'. These masks are focused on providing next level hydration and evening skin tone and texture. High quality ingredients like hyaluronic acid, blue agave and ruby formosa combine to ensure great results. How to use? Apply the middle layer of the mask to dry skin after cleansing. Wear for 20 minutes and once the mask is removed smooth any remaining serum into your face and neck. If de-puffing is your MO put your mask in the fridge for at least 15 minutes before you use it.
