As much as I love an all-rounder face mask - sometimes my skin is obviously suffering in a certain department and it’s great to have something on-hand that I can trust to sort things out. These are five face masks that are amazing for tackling five different skin concerns. Hopefully one of them will be perfect for you!

- IRRITATION -

First up we have my favourite for soothing and reviving my skin when it’s feeling and looking tired and irritated: the Dr Roebuck’s Tama Healing Mask* | £25. This mask is formulated with manuka honey, turmeric and avocado oil - I leave it on for 15 minutes or so for the ingredients to work their magic before rinsing it off. It’s so nice and nourishing, calming the skin down and reducing redness using effective but natural antibacterial ingredients. If I’ve had a rough day or when the weather has been harsh on my skin - this is the product I reach for!

 - BREAKOUT -

Luckily I don’t get many breakouts these days but when I do, there’s a product I can always trust to clear my skin up in no time: the Super Facialist Salicylic Acid Pore Purifying Clay Mask* | £10. Salicylic Acid is a BHA (Beta Hydroxy Acid) so chemically exfoliates the skin and is able to penetrate deep into the pores. Not only does this mask give my skin an instant glow boost once I remove it (I leave it on for no longer than 5 minutes) but if I use it in the evening; I can be confident that by morning any active blemishes will be gone or the swelling and inflammation will be massively reduced. Using this also helps prevent the scarring left behind by bad breakouts, as it’s exfoliating the skin at the same time. It’s a clay mask that feels pretty intense on the skin, but it’s well worth it for the amazing results!

- CONGESTION -

When my skin just needs a deep cleanse: I reach for the Niod Flavanone Mud* | £28. This mask isn't for the faint-hearted or the sensitive-skinned! It's a mud-based mask that I apply a thin layer of to my skin and leave on for as long as I can (up to 10 minutes). It hardens on the skin and does feel very intense, however it leaves my skin glowing, clear and incredibly clean and fresh. It's formulated with copper-rich clays, which is why it has this amazing renewing effect. It draws out impurities and removes any built up dirt, grease or residual makeup.

- DULLNESS -

If I have an event or occasion I want my skin to look its best for; I reach for the Peter Thomas Roth Pumpkin Enzyme Mask* | £46. This mask contains very fine microexfoliation particles to physically exfoliate the skin but also pumpkin enzymes and AHAs (the sisters of BHAs - these are usually more suitable for dry, normal or dehydrated skin) to chemically resurface your complexion. So you simply massage it in to loosen up any dead skin cells and leave it for 10-15 minutes for the acids to do the rest of the job. My skin has never felt smoother than after I've used this product! It gets rid of dry patches, reduces uneven skin tone and texture and gives my complexion an amazing glow boost.

- DEHYDRATION -

A newer discovery I've been loving for when my skin is tired and lacking in moisture is the Bioderma Hydrabio Moisturising Mask* | £15.50. This is a lightweight cream-gel mask that you apply, leave for 15 minutes and then remove the excess with a cotton wool pad; so it's a leave-on mask of sorts. I tend to use this in the evening when I've taken off my makeup and things are looking a bit lacklustre. It's formulated with Bioderma's own hydrating biological complex and calming niacinamide, so I would also recommend this if your skin is more on the sensitive side. I loooove how soft and smooth this leaves my skin and it really helps reduce the appearance of the dehydration lines I get when my skin is thirsty. It's really affordable and this has become one of my go-tos!
