The Best Face Masks for Revitalising and Relaxing

You’ve upped your skincare regime, but are you using your face mask the right way?

By: Helen Culley

When it comes to skincare, face masks offer a potent dose of hydrating, purifying and brightening goodness. They’re much more effective than only using a night-time moisturiser, as they harbour a much higher concentration of active ingredients. But the question is, which face mask is right for you?

Knowing the benefits of different types of face masks is the first step in identifying which is best for your skin type. Cream masks offer an intense dose of hydrating or exfoliating ingredients to nourish skin and draw out the dirt, targeting dullness in the process. Sheet masks come in cotton or microfibre soaked in serum: biocellulose, which is incredibly absorbent for holding a high concentration of actives, and hydrogel, which is like an infused layer of jelly. Clay or peel-off masks purify and detox the dermis, shedding skin cells, de-clogging pores and minimising hormonal triggers along the way. 

Now we know what the different types of face masks are, it's time to move on to which ones are right for you. Below, discover Liberty's edit of the best face masks to relax and revitalise...
