With the summer firmly on its way, I've been spring cleaning my exercise routine and skin care in anticipation of the long hot (more like warm) summer days. I've been enjoying going to boot camp over the last few weeks and when I get home I like to soak in the bath to ease my muscles as it's a bit of a killer. While I'm doing that, I like to exercise the art of multi tasking by applying a hair mask and putting on a face mask.
My face mask of choice lately has been the Detox Mask from the brilliant budget brand Dirty Works. It is a thick green clay based mask that helps to detoxify and revive the skin, particularly if it's looking lacklustre and dull. I apply a generous layer of this mask all over my face and down onto my neck before waiting 10 minutes for it to harden. I love the way the mask feels when it starts to dry as it really feels like the kaolin it contains is drawing the impurities out of my skin and really giving it a good cleanse. It also contains willow bark which is known for its skin clearing properties and it is packed full of blueberries which are full of antioxidants to protect and nourish the skin.
I remove the mask using a hot muslin cloth to polish the mask off my face in circular motions. I find that this combination of using the detoxifying mask with the exfoliating cloth leaves my skin looking smooth and glowing. It isn't a quick fix, not many masks are. It needs to be used in addition to a good skincare routine but if you're looking for something to detox and perk up your skin ready for the summer then this one is great!
Retailing at £4.99 for a 100ml tube from Sainsburys, this is a great option for those on a budget who are looking for a great quality skincare treat.
