FACE OFF

Treat skin to a sum­mer pam­per­ing with any one of these gor­geous masks

Northern Rivers Style - - LOOKING GOOD - HE­LEN HAWKES

Lie back, relax and treat your face to a sa­lon-style ex­pe­ri­ence with a qual­ity face mask. Maybe you want to com­bine your beauty treat­ment with a soak in the bath or a re­lax­ation CD.

You could even place a few drops of es­sen­tial oil on your tem­ples to relax you be­fore you start, apply prod­ucts with a brush rather than your fin­gers, use down­loads of tran­quil spa sounds dur­ing your DIY treat­ment and relax with the lights down and an eye mask on while ap­ply­ing a leave-on-and-wait prod­uct.

Here’s some top prod­ucts to try:

Erno Las­zlo White Mar­ble Sheet Mask, $100, is a true sa­lon-qual­ity treat­ment de­signed to re­duce dark spots and re­store lu­mi­nos­ity with in­tense hy­dra­tion in 10 min­utes. Stock­ist:

www.sephora.com.au. Add a sa­lon touch by steam­ing first with the Homedics Cleans­ing Fa­cial Sauna, $49.95. www.homedics.com.au.

Achieve dewy fresh­ness with the aptly named Magic Stripes Hyaluronic Fa­cial Treat­ment Mask, $62, in­cred­i­ble for de­hy­drated com­plex­ions post-heat­wave. Or try Chante­caille Detox Clay Mask, $116, which feels su­per lux­u­ri­ous and smells heav­enly, just like you are at a spa. Stock­ist www.mecca.com.au.

Em­i­nence’s Lime Stim­u­lat­ing Mask (HOT), $107, is high in nat­u­ral phyto-hor­mones and vi­ta­mins as well as ther­mal wa­ters to sup­ply fresh min­er­als to the skin. We also love Napoleon’s slightly space-age Col­la­gen Hy­dro­gel Face Mask that firms and tones skin with con­di­tion­ing agents such as honey, caviar, salmon egg and, of course, col­la­gen. Masks come in in­di­vid­ual packs, $15. www.napoleon­perdis.com.

Try lux­u­ri­ous Ar­bonne Sea­source Detox Spa Sea Mud Face and Body Mask, $66.50, to draw out im­pu­ri­ties. An­tiox­i­dant prop­er­ties, vi­ta­mins and min­er­als from marine botan­i­cals and blue-green al­gae help detox­ify and con­di­tion the skin’s sur­face, leav­ing it gor­geous and glow­ing.
