Best For: Clogged Pores

Clay Face Mask, £70 | Beauty Pie 

Dubbed ‘a facial in a tube’, black clay masks are pore-refining heroes. This one from Beauty Pie is one of the best if your skin is feeling congested or oily. A formula of glycolic, salicylic and lactic acids, as well as kaolin clay, is designed to draw out impurities and leave the skin feeling fresher and cleaner. Plus, liquorice and eucalyptus boast antiseptic and soothing properties, which is great if your skin also feels reactive or inflamed. You’ll notice an instantly cooling effect on application – just wait until the mask dries, then wash it off after ten minutes for best results.

Jet Lag Mask, £26 | Summer Fridays

Nourishing hyaluronic acid and skin-soothing niacinamide are a match made in heaven for skin that’s in need of a refresh. This creamy mask does exactly that, plumping, soothing and softening dry skin at speed – there’s a reason one of these is sold every two minutes. Having made the jump from viral to cult, insiders, celebrities and influencers are still buying it religiously. What makes it so beloved is its versatility. It can be used as a face mask, moisturiser, eye cream and just about everything in between.

Best For: Spots & Breakouts

Vinopure Purifying Mask, £26 | Caudalie 

Green clay, zinc and tea tree are the best ingredients to look out for if you want to purify textured skin. This mask does exactly that, working to fight the production of sebum to minimise blemishes, enlarged pores, blackheads and oiliness. You only need to apply it for five to ten minutes once a week – plus, it’s made from 99% natural ingredients. Ideal.

Best For: Dullness

Brightening Tightening Mask, £9.50 | Versed

Kaolin clay and turmeric are great at restoring lacklustre skin. Mineral rich and exfoliating, a mask like this is ideal for buffing away dull skin cells. Apply it like you would any other mask, but when removing it, work it into the skin in circular motions to really benefit from the exfoliation. Your skin will feel smoother, brighter and more radiant, making it the perfect mask to use before an event.

This satisfying, ultra-hydrating gel mask is perfect for skin that needs cooling and calming. Drenching the skin with moisture, you’ll feel instant relief. You can either leave it on for ten minutes before washing it off, or alternatively wear it overnight and let the product soak into the skin for seriously nourishing results.
