by using it hot and then cold. Placed over the skin, it improves comfort and wellbeing while also giving you time to breathe and de-stress at the end of the day. If you’ve ever used a clay mask, you know how messy things can get. Those days of cleaning a charcoal mask off your favourite dressing gown will soon be a thing of the past with Skincity’s The Mask Brush. This ingenious tool makes applying any face mask quicker, easier and more precise, meaning no more messy masking ses- sions! Made of pliable silicone, the wide shape of the brush head expertly smoothes any mask over the skin, almost like an artist’s paintbrush, creating an even layer that stays put, making it ideal for multi-masking. Not everyone loves a face mask, but if you ever feel like your skin needs a more intensive skin treat during the week, there is a way to convert your existing skin care products into a prob- lem-solving sheet mask. The Lotion Mask is a clever product that turns your can’t-live-without-it serums, lotions and essences into a use-anywhere sheet mask. Reminiscent of those flannels you had as a child that turned from a tightly packed disc into a fun colourful washcloth when dunked in water, these tiny tablet-like discs soak up any liquid poured over them before expanding into a mask that can be unfurled and placed over the skin. Whether you want to increase moisture levels, brighten dullness, exfoliate rough skin or calm a breakout, these compressed masks will help you do it. With winter on its way, it’s time to turn your attention to your hands. Prone to extreme bouts of dryness and tight-feeling skin, your hands are often left depleted by Christmas so make your hand cream work harder by using it along- side The Treatment Gloves. Worn over the hands after slathering them in a hydrating cream or serum ensures that all the active ingredients can penetrate the surface undisturbed by exter- nal nuisances. You can wear them for a matter of minutes or overnight while you sleep but, once removed, your hands will feel the softest they have ever felt.
