It’s a masking minefield out there, so find the one for your skin with our tried-and-tested guide. By HANNAH COATES

Face masks have come a long way since the cream-and-cucumber days. Now, the best ones tackle all manner of complexion concerns, from dry skin to sallow cheeks. “Unlike serums, which give results over time, a mask gives long-lasting results after just one use,” says La

Congested and problematic complexions will love Sisley’s new Tropical Resins mask. It’s a white clay-based formula that absorbs the oil and surface impurities which jeopardize clear skin.

With any clay-based mask, Czech recommends applying straight after you’ve cleansed with a hot flannel to open pores and leaving it on for 10 minutes, once
or twice a week.
