Mask away your skincare issues

There’s a popular meme that’s doing the round. *does a face mask.* This is going to fix everything! It makes a funny joke for two reason – one, it’s relatable. We’ve lost the number of counts the number of times we put on a mask in hopes it fixing all our skin issues. The second reason? There is some truth to it. Of course, your skin wouldn’t be magically transformed into glass-like wonder, but it is a step further to it. Face masks contain a higher dose of active ingredients, making up for the times you wiped off makeup in a rush or skipped a skincare step. Additionally, they’re also pretty darn indulgent. So if your constant skincare goal is clear skin, read up to find out a mask that’s meant just to combat your skincare issue.

Ideal for anyone who struggles with dry under eyes, these gel patches are infused with hyaluronic acid to help lock in hydration. They're also packed with caffeine, collagen, and marshmallow root extract, which helps soften the appearance of fine lines. Each tub contains 30 pairs.




It goes without saying that less tends to be more when it comes to treating spots, but if you’ve never tried a mask before to halt a breakout, it’s time to get muddy. Just try to avoid green clay-based masks as these tend to be a little dehydrating. We love the GlamGlow Youthmud Tinglexfoliate Treatment for spot treatment. It’s pricey but it works!




It’s the oldest trick in the book for a reason, because it works! Any mask laced with cooling ingredients really will work to soothe flushed skin, and sometimes even calm conditions like rosacea. Try storing Ren’s Evercalm Ultra Comforting Rescue Mask in the fridge overnight to supercharge its anti-inflammatory powers.

Acne and blemishes

For your skin to be squeaky clean, you first need to address the excess sebum production. The pollution around can turn up oily skin with blackheads, whiteheads and pimples. Include a deep cleaning face mask like Dr. Sheth's Clarifying Sulphur Face Mask. The clay-based mask is customized specifically for Indian skin and weather that affects it. This will not only balance out the oil production but also keep the skin supple while taking care of it.




While ageing skin is usually dehydrated, hydration is not all it needs. For mature skin that needs anti-ageing benefits, look for a mask with collagen, antioxidants, AHAs and hyaluronic acids. The Kiehl's Ginger Leaf & Hibiscus Firming Mask is highly invigorating, with potent ingredients. Apply it after moisturiser on skin and keep it on all night long. Your skin should feel tighter, radiant and plumper overtime.




If you can’t fathom where, to begin with, your dry skin, a nourishing, hydrating mask could be the answer. This cooling face mask from Clarins will replenish skin with lost moisture. The mask is infused with vitamins, plant extracts and has a huge dosage of collagen to leave it plump and supple.




While all face masks can brighten up dull skin, there some that do this better. Look for a fruit-based face mask like this one from Juicy Chemistry. The Kakadu Plum and Acai Berry mask have the highest amount of vitamin C. Prolonged use of the mask can help to remove dark spots too.
