Try These Calming Masks When You're Stressed

Soothe your skin and soul

When stressed, people often visit spas for some relaxing pampering sessions. But if you just want a quiet, quality me-time to rejuvenate or simply don't have time to get a full body massage, you can also go for more budget-friendly options that you can do at home like using a calming face mask. Ahead, our recommended masks to use when you're having one of those stressful days. Indulge in one (or all!) of these masks to uplift your mood.

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask


Tried and tested to be incredibly effective, just one layer of this will leave you feeling fresh and rested the next morning. The Laneige Water Sleeping Mask is an all-time favourite because it delivers real results. Keep a tub of the lavender variant by your bedside for the nights when you don't feel like going through your whole skincare routine. The soothing aroma of this mask will also help you get that well-deserved beauty sleep.

Skyn Iceland's Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels


If you're going through stressful days and having restless nights, we can't recommend this product enough. One of the best beauty finds of the year, Skyn Iceland's Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels promises to infuse the undereye area with Icelandic glacial water and active ingredients that can firm, tone, and brighten in just ten minutes.

Starskin Dreamkiss™ Plumping & Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Lip Mask


Pamper your lips with the Starskin Dreamkiss™ Plumping & Hydrating Bio-Cellulose Second Skin Lip Mask! Enriched with mango butter, flaxseed, sea fern and hyaluronic acid, this lip mask feels so nourishing and indulgent. It will soften and plump your lips, smooth out fine lines around the mouth area and leave you feeling oh-so-spoilt.

The Body Shop's Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay


Grab a tube of The Body Shop's Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay and apply it all over your body to remove impurities and soften your skin. Designed to help you recreate a spa experience at home, this product should be used with a warm towel wrap in order to maximise the bamboo charcoal's purifying effects. Doing this will leave you feeling refreshed which can make way for a deep, satisfying slumber.

Baby Foot


Your feet carry all your weight and yet it's usually neglected aside from the occasional pedicures and foot spas. Give your feet some lovin' and try the cult-favourite Baby Foot mask from Japan. It softens your feet so much that the dead skin simply peels off over the course of a week after using it. Talk about a fresh start for your feet!
