Hydrate your skin
We tried and tested 3 hydrating masks to see if they do what they really do. Here is what we discovered:
Now if you think hydrating masks are just for severely dry, sun-damaged skin, then you are sadly mistaken. In truth they are for normal, oily or combination. Beautician Ina says, ? They are for everyone. When your skin suffers from the over-indulgence of late nights, too much drink, exposure to smoke and unbalanced diets, a hydrating mask is really the only thing to sort them out.?

This oil-free gel mask contains moisturising plant extracts, aloe, kelp, lavender and rosewater is perfect for tired, dry and stressed out skin. It is easy to apply and feels nice on your skin. After the application, the gel becomes a thin sheen that can either be removed after 10 minutes with a gentle swipe or left on overnight.

Lush facial masks
Lush products are fab and spooned from stainless steel bowls on ice, like dips at an up-market deli. Our fave is the Wow Wow mask, which is made of deli-fresh ingredients: oats (to soften), marigold (to tone), limeflower and mushrooms (for thread veins). It feels cool and lumpy but the messiness of the mask was off-putting and a bit of an effort to remove. Not such a great mask.
