Best Face Masks For Glowing Skin
1. Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Anti Blemish Pore Purifying Clay Mask
A detoxifying mask to unclog pores & let skin breathe.
We love it as it’s recyclable, vegetarian and dermatologically tested.
Super Facialist’s anti-blemish face mask helps to rebalance blemish prone skin for a fresher and smoother complexion. With a blended expert concoction of Salicylic Acid, proven to unclog congested pores. Plus all round skin enhancer Niacinamide (Vitamin B3), and Sea Mud to absorb excess oils which can lead to breakouts. Even using just once or twice a week will help to clear skin of dirt and excess oils. Both of which can lead to blemishes and breakouts.
125ml RRP: £10
2. Omnilux Contour Face LED Light Therapy Mask
Omnilux offers medical-grade light therapy, that rejuvenates your skin naturally.
Based on the world’s leading Omnilux Medical light therapy technology, the Contour LED collection uses optimized wavelengths of red and near-infrared light, to deliver dermatologist-level skin rejuvenating results. It stimulates collagen production for firmer, more youthful-looking skin. Improves redness, inflammation and pigmentation. Refines skin texture and tone for an effortless glow.
All this, and from the comfort of your own home.
3. Ayurvedic Red Sandalwood Face Mask with Vetivert
The rejuvenating and anti-aging properties of this Ayurvedic Red Sandalwood Face Mask may appeal particularly to older skins. Or those keen to counter fine lines and wrinkles. But its anti-inflammatory quality makes it equally appealing to those with residual marks from acne or from sun damage.
Vetivert also protects the skin from environmental damage. It nourishes the skin promoting the growth of new cells to rejuvenate it. The antiseptic and anti-inflammatory properties of vetivert facilitate healing. Not to mention the disappearance of acne, rashes, and scars to make the skin healthy, clear, and smooth.
