The 5 best times to apply a face mask

Don't banish your face mask to the bathroom! There are plenty of opportunities during the day when you can nourish your skin, boost its radiance and purify those pores using a mineral mask. Ten minutes are all you need.

1. Nail-time

After a long day's work, or during the weekend, treat yourself to some pamper time and apply a hydrating and refreshing face mask like the Quenching Mineral Mask from Vichy. While you're relaxing, take the opportunity to paint your nails or dry brush your body to scrub off dead skin cells. Alternatively, why not use your me-time for some reading? There's a chapter that's just waiting to be read...

2. TV-time

Slim down your Netflix queue and, while your Quenching Mineral mask is working its magic, catch up on your favorite TV show. Do us a favor though, and don't forget the #spoiler hashtag! 

3. Chore-time

Chores are annoying but inevitable; apply a facial mask to transform duty to beauty! Vacuum while you cleanse your pores with Vichy's Pore Purifying Mask. It's formulated with two ultrafine white clays : Kaolin and Bentonite clay, the two teams together and acts like a ‘magnet’ to draw out excess sebum & impurities.

4. Pre-party-time

While you're deciding which outfit to wear, make sure your skin is as radiant as your look with a Double Glow Peel Mask. Be the belle of the ball, and glow from the inside out, thanks to the mask's formula which includes fruit acids to peel off dead cells while exfoliating volcanic pumice sloughs off dead skin. Vitamin CG brightens and uniforms skin tone for even more glowing results.

5. Flight-time

A flight, when your skin is likely to become dehydrated, can be the perfect opportunity to apply a face mask. For an added boost of the refreshing sensation, spritz some Thermal Water over your face after five minutes of wearing the mask, massage in small circular motions, then leave for another three minutes.
