If there’s one thing Korean beauty brands do well, it’s a mask. And whilst their face masks are undoubtedly worthy of praise, there’s a whole wealth of masks available for every area of your body. From paper-thin sheet masks loaded with skin-nourishing serums, to intense treatment packs for the feet, if you’re looking for a little TLC then look no further than some of the new arrivals, and faithful favourites at Beauty Bay. From the tips of your hair right down to your toes, there’s a mask to suit your most specific of needs. Here’s our edit of head to toe masking.
If they aren’t already, hair masks should become a mainstay in your routine. Acting as a supercharged weekly conditioning treatment, they deliver nutrients deep into the hair cuticle for stronger, shinier and healthier hair.
Oh K!’s single use treatment takes hair masking one step further, with an included bonnet to be worn over the hair whilst the mask is applied. The cap traps natural body heat escaping from the head, warming the treatment mask and opening the hair cuticle, allowing for a more intensive action.
When it comes to face treatments, stick to the tried and tested sheet mask method. Cut to perfectly fit the contours of the face and loaded with serum, Leader’s Daily Wonders masks are a simple to use addition to your masking regime that will give quick results.
Just avoid answering the door until you’re done!
For plumper, smoother, more hydrated lips, look no further than Starskin’s Dreamkiss Lip Mask. Especially designed to perfectly mould to the shape of your mouth, the bio cellulose mask delivers serum deep into the skin. Leave it in place for fifteen minutes for visibly improved lips.
It’s the ideal prep step before matte lipstick application, too.
Ever wonder if your neck is missing out on some vital care? We advocate treating the area to the same level of care as you do your face. Talika have the answer in the form of their unique sheet mask created specifically for the neck area.
Designed to tackle the signs of ageing in this area, it visibly firms, hydrates and smooths skin keeping it looking youthful for longer.
One of the most innovative ways to mask that we’ve seen to date, Kokostar’s patch masks feature individual miniature sheet masks that can be applied anywhere you fancy.
The face is an obvious choice, but why stop there – the hydrating Rose Petals are ideal for delivering a hit of moisture to elbows, knees, hands – just about anywhere!
Continuing the floral theme, Oh K!’s hydrating hand mask is the ultimate treat for overworked hands. Featuring serum-infused gloves which are activated with friction, the treatment is a mess-free way to intensely nourish the skin for a more youthful appearance.
Only requiring ten minutes of your time, it’s an easy addition to your routine.
When you’re thinking of masks, chances are nails are the furthest from your mind. But, Kocostar have filled the gap in your head to toe masking session. 10 little pouches fit perfectly over fingertips and are filled with a hydrating serum that penetrates the cuticles and nail bed, helping to strengthen and nourish nails.
Just slip them on whilst you’re watching your favourite TV show and leave to soak for fifteen minutes. Simple!
Last but not least – instead of desperately scrubbing your heels every week, why not switch to an exfoliating foot treatment mask? Magic Hour by Starskin is an innovative way to gain super smooth feet – simply wear the socks for up to an hour and a half and allow the Lactic Acid infused serum to soak into the skin.
Then, over the next seven to ten days, skin will gradually peel away revealing baby soft feet!
