    1 / 8 These are the best hydrating masks to try out now

    Whenever someone asks me for my best skincare advice, my answer tends to be the same: use a face mask every single day. It’s something I’ve been religiously practising for the last four-and-a-half years and it has seriously made a difference to my complexion. There are many types of masks out there – mud packs, sleeping masks, sheet masks and the like, but I tend to gravitate towards sheet masks on most days. Sheet masks are pampering, hydrating treats for my combination skin and they always leave my mien soft and glowing after. Having been a major mask addict for a while now, here are my top seven recommendations for the best sheet masks to try.
