In Appreciation of: Skincycles’ Recovery Mask
Make way, make way, a new beauty hero is coming through, and this one holds the power to calm stressed out skin
We could all do with building a little recovery time into our routines. Whether it’s taking a rest day within a jam-packed fitness schedule, or booking a Greek island holiday to get away from a hectic job. And our skin is just the same. Sometimes it needs a breather, a moment’s peace to regroup and recover from the many, many assaults it battles day in, day out. And that’s precisely the ethos behind Skincyles Recovery Mask, £120, a pared-back formula designed to calm and soothe stressed out skin.

The Rise to Fame
We’re calling it: the world’s about the fall in love with Skincycles. It’s the brainchild of Alice Henshaw, renowned skincare expert and owner of Harley Street Injectables, a leading London clinic that’s home to treatments that sync to the natural cycles of your skin. Skincycles is simply the take-home equivalent to that ethos, a range of high performance, luxury skincare that’s all about improving skin health.
If you’re a Skinimalist looking to pare back your bathroom line-up to a basic skincare routine, be sure to make room for the Recovery Mask. It contains all those delicious ingredients known to help skin chill out, from hyaluronic acid to allantoin and even bisabolol, a plant-derived antioxidant.

The Star Quality
This stuff is pretty transformative. You could leave it on for a mere 15 minutes, or paste it on pre-bed and let it works its magic overnight. Either way, skin will emerge gleaming: calmer, softer, more hydrated with a whole heap of glow to boot.
