The best face masks and moisturisers to revive winter skin

After a couple of months of letting our hair down, we are all ditching the boozy late nights for a healthy, more proactive lifestyle. First on our agenda is getting our skincare routine back on track. So, while the nights are still dark, make the most of your evenings and give your skin a bit of TLC by investing in a good facemask.

When the weather is still harsher on your skin, we would recommend using a hydrating formula as opposed to clay. If you have combination skin, we would recommend that you use your clay mask and then go straight in with a hydrating one, for an extra boost. Here are our top recommended face masks to bring back your glow…

Best face masks and moisturisers for winter skin:

#1 Eve Lom Rescue Mask

Whenever we want to revive our winter skin and give it the glow it desperately craves (and deserves), we always reach for Eve Lom. Feeling the effect of a few festive late nights out? The Rescue Mask has honey-infused kaolin clay which absorbs all that excess oil and gets rid of any puffiness. It also gently exfoliates the surface of the skin and has soothing properties to calm any blotchiness or redness. Think of it as an instant detox for your skin.

#2 Avant Skincare Rose and Squalane Revitalising DUO

For when you’re skin is in need of a real boost, Avant Revitalising Duo is exactly what you need. The lightweight formula is rich in nourishing ingredients, including rose extract, squalane and Tocopherol. With rose, this mask provides a dewy glow and the squalane revitalises your complexion with its balancing properties. The cream helps to exfoliate the skin and uplift any dead skin cells, with Tocopherol providing the lotion with antioxidant power to shield the skin from any harmful environmental factors.

#4 Peter Thomas Roth Cucumber Gel Masque

A Coggles team favourite, this mask is for the time-poor person who can’t afford to spend 30 minutes going through the traditional face mask process, but don’t want to compromise when it comes to their skin either. Complete in just ten minutes, this cucumber infused product helps soothe irritated, dry skin whilst the vitamin-rich papaya and pineapple extracts restore softness. It has calming camomile properties and the Antioxidant bilberry extracts which protect your skin from free radical damage. A quick, but result-driven product!
