After the cocooning months of winter, Spring is finally – and decidedly – in the air, so there’s no better time to shed the layers, in more ways than one, and reveal a revived skin regime.
These Be Berry masks – by skin experts Formula 10.0.6 – deep cleanse the skin, and whip off any dirt and impurities, leaving a clear and glowing complexion. The Formula 10.0.6 brand was originally developed by a chemist back in 1933, with products that were to be dispensed exclusively to pharmacists, so it has a long history at perfecting skincare. It’s now known for its fresh, natural ingredients in products that target troublesome skin complaints.
The masks form the basis of the skincare collection, and can be used two-three times a week. I think many of us tend to view skin masks as ‘once in a blue-moon’ products, but these are aimed to be incorporated into your overall regime and to be used regularly. This Clear Illuminating Peel Mask, £7.50, is great for skin prone to spots or imperfections. It smooths on easily and contains raspberry and açai to help minimise pores and clear any break-outs. Leave it on for 10 minutes and it peels easily off to leave brighter, clearer skin.
For tired, sallow skin, opt for the Awake Energizing Peel Mask, £7.50. It peps up the skin with its antioxidant-rich yumberry (also known as a Chinese Strawberry) and pomegranate. Great for mornings – if you have time – it’s like a ‘sleep injection’ for the skin. Put it on as you potter around pre-shower and peel it off just before you jump in the water. You’ll be surprised to see a lifted, rejuvenated complexion.
Finally, the Skin Clarifying Mud Mask, £7.50, is the best deep cleanser around. It tackles clogged pores, and contains strawberry and rosemary to eliminate impurities and yarrow for clarifying skin. Gloop it on and leave for 15 minutes, this is a rinse-off formula but it leaves skin feeling really clean and clear.
