Whatever your skin concern, a radiance-boosting face mask is at the rescue.


Dry and sensitive skin

Evening: Clinique Moisture Surge Overnight Mask, $79: Use this mask instead of your regular night cream twice a week; it will be a well-received drink of water for thirsty skin.

Perfect pick-me-up: Lancome Hydra Intense Hydrating Gel Mask, $87: Apply a thick layer to calm stressed skin and enjoy a glowing complexion for days.


Brown spots and sun damage

Morning: HydroPeptide Instant Peptide Miracle Mask, $85: This product is an ageing skin’s dream; it fades brown spots and gives skin a shot of moisture at the same time.

Evening: Wei Golden Root Purifying Mud Mask, $75: Brush this mud mask on skin to ease brown spots and dry skin. It leaves open pores barely visible.

Perfect pick-me-up: Clinique Turnaround Instant Facial Masque, $87: Five minutes of massaging this mask into skin and it feels like you’ve had a microdermabrasion spa treatment.


Fine lines and wrinkles
