The heavy application of face creams in winter can suffocate your pores. That’s why you need a cleansing clay mask before you apply any other masks to make sure you absorb all possible nutrients.

Clarins’ mask is especially good for those with oily skin as it has a particularly oil-free texture. $370.

If you need to awaken your dull skin in an unbelievable eight minutes, this treatment is your saviour.
