We all love a good face mask. Face masks are such a great way to unwind and relax at the end of a long day. Nourished, hydrated, and detoxified skin, what could be better? Well, have you ever considered using a face mask before heading out? Whether you’re off to a party, a catch-up, or work, a face mask will help promote refreshed and energized skin. Plus, if you fancy putting on makeup, applying a face mask beforehand will help achieve an airbrushed-looking base. Perfect for those Instagram selfies! Think about how easy it’ll be to apply your makeup too. Your skin will be so smooth it’ll just glide on. Trust me; you need to try it.
I’ve rounded up my top 5 face masks that’ll help prep your skin before Eid.
Kiehl’s Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask
As the name suggests, this mask will energize the appearance of tired and dull skin and help restore your healthy-looking glow. This mask is formulated with Turmeric Extract and Cranberry Seeds to reveal a brighter-looking complexion and help visibly even your skin tone. My favorite part about this mask is the Cranberry Seeds; they’re crushed and provide a gentle exfoliation to improve the texture of your skin. You’ll instantly feel a difference once washing it off. The easiest way to get rid of dead skin cells is by exfoliating. Getting rid of the flaky layer of dead skin will make your makeup application miles better as you’ll be applying makeup to a smooth canvas. Want to know the best part? This mask is suitable for all skin types, including those with sensitive skin!
Garnier SkinActive Anti Fatigue Ampoule Sheet Mask
This Anti Fatigue Sheet Mask from Garnier is brilliant if you’re in a rush to get ready or have very little patience when waiting for a face mask to do its magic. In just 52 minutes, your skin will be rehydrated and radiant. It’s also super easy to apply. You could even put it on whilst choosing your outfit!
Didn’t get enough beauty sleep? No worries, its vegan formula contains two fantastic ingredients for the skin- Pineapple Extract and 1% Vitamin C. Pineapple Extract is full of antioxidants and vitamins to rejuvenate your complexion, whilst Vitamin C works to brighten and energize the skin. I highly recommended this sheet mask as it’ll also reduce the appearance of fine lines and tired skin. You’ll be glowing and looking well-rested at Eid.
Clarins SOS Pure Mask
A clay mask is a fab option if you have oily or combination skin. Applying a clay face mask before putting on your makeup will help absorb any excess oils from your pores. The result? A less shiny complexion.
The star ingredient in this mask is Alpine Willow Herb Extract. This organic extract will soon become your best friend as it will help mattify your skin, reducing the appearance of pores and minimize shine. In 10 minutes, this purifying clay mask can work to absorb any impurities, thanks to the help of Green Clay and White Clay. Its cream-gel texture will leave your skin feeling supple, clean, and luminous.
