As temperatures rise, you need to up the ante with your skincare. Your skin is your body’s largest organ and it protects internal organs, bones and muscles from harm and harsh environmental factors, the Arabian sun being one of them. Since half of our body is made up of water and the skin helps to retain all of that moisture, it is extremely important that we protect and nourish our skin by ensuring that it remains hydrated.
If you haven’t tried a hydrating face mask, you must. These are a relatively cheap, great way to nourish your face effectively and fast. Whether you have oily, spot prone or flaky, dry skin, every skin type can benefit from a hydrating sheet mask. Sheet masks are having a moment of late and there’s a reason behind the hype; The infused serums in sheet masks get absorbed faster than ordinary clay masks and by leaving it on your face for 15 minutes, the skin will absorb the max amount that it can. The benefits are plentiful and include a more balanced, plumper and suppler skin, a glowing complexion and less skin irritations – and who doesn’t want that?
We’ve picked our top masks from Skin Republic, the hypo-allergenic dermatological skin care range created in the lab by skilled dermatologists.

This super-hydrating hydrogel serum sheet mask instantly reveals a radiant, glowing complexion. Nutrient packed, Sea Minerals nourish and hydrate whilst Collagen and Argan Oil help reduce the visible signs of aging. The potent combination of Collagen which encourages the renewal of cells, and Argan Oil which is a hydrating oil comprised of essential fatty acids, promotes a result of smoother, plumper, more youthful skin.
For the Young at Heart: Gold Hydrogel
Our personal favourite. This face mask instantly minimises the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles with its luxurious hydrogel serum, rich in antioxidants. Age-defying Minerals and Plant Extracts help reduce the visible signs of aging for lifted, smooth and younger looking skin. The ions present in Gold help stimulate the skin’s cells, improving blood circulation. The improvement in circulation leaves your skin glowing.
