Masking your impurities

Thursday, 19th October, 2017 9:56am

With Halloween fast approaching, and as is tradition with this month, I have decided that it is time to discuss masks and the type we should all be using twice a week to keep our faces looking good. No matter what your skin type or budget is, there is a mask that will help heal smooth or hydrate your skin.

Yon-Ka Excellence Code Masque, €69, has an instant lifting effect, eliminating signs of tiredness and leaving your skin plumped and refined and your complexion immediately bright and fresh. Enriched with anti-aging and radiance-boosting ingredients, this invaluable care mask defies all signs of aging to produce visibly younger skin.

Image Ageless Overnight Retinol Mask, €89, will help reveal new radiance with its concentrated overnight retinol masque, formulated with water bank technology to continually release hydration and lock in nutrients for the ultimate beauty sleep. It creates a thin film to ensure optimal coverage and controlled penetration, reduce trans epidermal water loss thus opening pathways for active penetration and offer a time-released action of retinol. This increases firmness, reduces the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and improves skin imperfections.

Neutrogena Visibly Clear Light Therapy Acne Mask (€76.99) provides a whole new way to treat mild to moderate acne. With clinically proven light therapy used by dermatologists for over a decade, the mask harnesses the energy from red and blue lights to treat mild to moderate acne. The blue light kills acne causing bacteria whilst the red light reduces inflammation. For clearer, healthier looking skin, use every day.

Light therapy has been used by dermatologists in their offices for over a decade. LED lights work by gently penetrating the skin at various depths to stimulate the skin’s physiology. Blue light targets acne-causing bacteria while red light reduces acne inflammation.

This one step treatment covers your face and is easy to use at home.

After cleansing, put the mask on. Push the button and let it work for ten minutes while you can sit back and relax.

The Charcoal Detox Instant Facial by Seoulista (€8.99) is a natural bamboo mask designed to help purify and cleanse the skin. This clever no-mess mask has been infused with an impressive duo of charcoal and volcanic ash which eliminates toxins and impurities while cleansing the skin. After just 20 minutes your skin is cleansed, defined and detoxified revealing a healthy, clear complexion.

I packed these on a recent holiday and must say they were a godsend.

The Body Shop Anti-Pollution Mask (€25) is enriched with matcha green tea from Japan, dandelion extract and soul-soothing Community Trade aloe vera from Mexico.

This indulgently creamy, 100 per cent vegan masking formula deeply purifies, gently exfoliates and liberates your skin from the weekly build-up of city pollutants and everyday impurities.

Hair Mask: There’s dry hair and there’s hair that’s so parched, so thirsty, so starved for moisture that only a serious drink could bring it back to life. Joico Intense Hydrator is the cocktail of choice.

It's a profoundly nourishing treatment, offering immediate hydration to hair and is the perfect choice for frizzy, erratic, dry locks that have been zapped of moisture from by everything from chemical treatments to the environment, pulling and hauling from tongs and straighteners.
