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