1. Blue/black berry enzyme mask

The gel is cool when applied, which provides relief from the day's stresses. Berry extracts aid oxygenation in the skin.

£31, Ole Henriksen, Harvey Nichols, 020-7235 5000

2. Rescue Mask

Spread this clay-like lotion over the face and relax for 20 minutes while it starts to tighten. Rinse off with a warm wet cloth – your skin will feel noticeably softer.

£35, Eve Lom, evelom.com

3. Ionic clay mask

Clay is widely used in spa treatments to draw out impurities. Recommended for those prone to oily skin.

£6.99, Boots Botanics, boots.com

4. Hydration boost night mask

At this time of year skin needs a helping hand with re-hydrating. After your night-time beauty regime, apply this mask which is packed with vitamins for rejuvenation.

£22, Elizabeth Arden, available nationwide

5. Detox face mask

The ultimate in TLC for your skin, this deservedly popular foaming gel will deeply cleanse away the oil, dirt and make-up clogging up your pores.

£29, Malin+Goetz, uk.spacenk.com

6. Skin-reviving rubberising mask

Remember the peel-off masks from the Seventies? This new one is just as fun: apply it quickly before peeling off your rubberised second-skin 15 minutes later.

£35, Bliss Spa, blissworld.co.uk
