Skin Care Basics – Step 4 - Masks

Unmask Your Best Skin: Why Face Masks Belong in Your Beauty Routine

We all know the importance of a daily skincare routine. Cleanse, tone, moisturise - it's the gospel of glowing skin. But what if there was a secret weapon you could add to your arsenal for an extra dose of beauty? Enter the humble face mask!

Face masks are more than just a pampering ritual (although they can definitely be that too). They're concentrated treatments packed with powerful ingredients that can take your skincare to the next level. Here's why you should consider incorporating them into your routine:

  • Targeted TLC: Unlike your daily cleanser or moisturiser, face masks can address specific concerns. Feeling dry? Hydrating masks quench thirsty skin. Got blemishes? Clarifying masks can help minimise breakouts. There's a mask out there for everything from dullness to wrinkles.

  • Deep Cleanse: Our daily routine tackles surface dirt, but masks can go a step further. Clay masks, for example, draw out impurities and excess oil, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and decongested.

  • Boost and Brighten: Tired, lacklustre skin? Face masks can be a game-changer. They often contain ingredients like vitamin C and antioxidants that can brighten and revitalise your complexion.

  • Exfoliation Powerhouse: For a smoother, more radiant look, masks with exfoliating properties can be your secret weapon. They buff away dead skin cells, revealing the fresh, healthy glow beneath.

  • Self-Care Sanctuary: Let's face it (pun intended!), applying a mask is a chance to relax and unwind. Take 20 minutes, put your feet up, and enjoy the pampering experience.

Ready to Mask On?

Face masks are a fun and effective way to elevate your skincare routine. With so many options available, finding the perfect one for your skin type and concerns is easy. Remember, consistency is key! Use your mask a couple of times a week for optimal results.

Pro Tip: Want to take your masking to the next level? Try mask mapping! Apply different masks to target specific areas of your face. For example, use a hydrating mask on your cheeks and a clarifying mask on your T-zone.

Tropics Masks


Comfort Food: Blending antioxidant-rich berries, revitalising resurrection flower extract, and calming allantoin and bisabolol, this mask is like a calming, moisture-giving glug of goodness for your skin, making it bouncier and more resilient with every helping.


New Horizons: Bamboo charcoal dives deep into pores, sucking out excess sebum and impurities, while salicylic acid stops acne-causing bacteria in its tracks.

Don’t worry about it drying your complexion out either. Plant-derived humectants top up your skin’s moisture levels, while blue spirulina promotes skin repair and soothes inflammation. Enriched with lime and rosemary essential oils, it’s a zingy treat for the senses, too.


Electric Bloom: While electric daisy extract brightens and tightens complexions, kaolin clay gently empties out pores without drying or stripping the skin. Rich in vitamin C and fatty acids, sea buckthorn spurs on collagen production for plumper, brighter skin, while AHAs work to resurface.

So why wait? Unmask your best skin and discover the power of this beauty essential!
