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

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.

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.
