view gallery VIEW GALLERY

Whether you want to draw out impurities or plump skin to appear more youthful, pick a product that packs a punch

1. Fruit and Flower Acid Mask

Chantecaille was developed to address inflammation on the skin. This contains grapefruit and hibiscus acid to dissolve dead cells, resulting in a fresher complexion.

£74, Chantecaille, spacenk.com

2. Black Rose Cream Mask

For those who like to treat their skin to only the best, this mask is a must-have. It contains extracts of black rose along with anti-ageing ingredients for a smoothing effect.

£93, Sisley, houseoffraser.co.uk

3. Dragon's Blood Hyaluronic Mask

This product's slightly scary name refers to red sap from the sangre de drago tree. It's great for dry skin, with its intensively moisturising and hydrating formula.

£35, rodial.co.uk

4. Enzymatic Peel Mask

If getting a skin peel is a step too far then this is a great substitute. The peel mask works with exfoliating and brightening ingredients first to refresh the skin and then to deliver a more radiant complexion.

£29, Caudalie, boots.com

5. Essential Cleansing Mask

Best used on combination skin, the clay will draw out impurities. Rose and marshmallow balance out the cleansing with their soothing and nourishing properties.

£27.50, ESPA, espaskincare.com

6. Blue/Black Berry Enzyme Mask

This has blueberry and blackberry extracts for oxygenating, lavender to reduce inflammation, and papaya enzymes to renew skin cells.

£36, Ole Henriksen, lookfantastic.com

7. Skin Brunch Kukui Rejuvenating Mask

Skin Brunch is rich in antioxidant ingredients. There are also essential oils that deliver a calming scent, and macadamia and coconut oils leave the face feeling hydrated.

£23, Orico, oricolondon.co.uk

8. Mini Mask Lift

Ideal for ageing skin, this mask has a hydrating and lifting formula that works to firm and smooth the skin. The ingredients include wheat protein and amino acids.

£22, Crystal Clear, crystalclear.co.uk

9. Skin Resurfacing Mask

This face mask is from Champneys, a leading name in luxury spas, and it doesn't disappoint. It delivers a gentle exfoliation to revitalise skin while keeping it feeling soft and nourished.

£10, Champneys, boots.com

10. Prolagene Lift and Fill Wrinkle Mask

This is a highly effective mask which is applied directly to wrinkles to tackle them at the source, leaving skin feeling firmer and looking plumper.

£32, Decleor, decleor.co.uk
