Face masks are generally seen as a bit of a luxury, a rare moment usually, when you actually have time to take a long soak in the bath. That was me five years ago, until I was introduced to a new face mask by my mum, who works for Lancôme. After seeing the benefits immediately, I haven’t looked back. Now they are part of my weekly beauty regime. Even if I’m busy, I’ll put one on while I'm washing my hair, brushing my teeth or even over night (a must if you’ve taken a flight or been a little excessive with alcohol!). Aim to use your mask at least once a week, but to be honest, you can use them as part of your daily routine. 

There are masks for all skin types, dry, oily, sensitive. Today I will be advising you on on the best anti-ageing masks. They have the added bonus of helping your skin repair its collagen fibres, plumping and smoothing out those lines, sadly this won’t last forever! They will also help the general condition of your skin, cleaning and rehydrating your skin, adding moisture and radiance. So why wouldn’t you use one? 

Here are The Grown Up Edits favourites, with a budget to suit everyone.
