10 of the best face masks for men

Face masks for men have become a booming market and a skincare must-have following the internet trend for multi-masking. It really went crazy in 2016 and social media can take the credit for most of it. The trend for multi-masking has been a real boost for skincare sales in this emerging new category. Face masks were valued at £11.2 million in 2016, increasing by 45% on the previous year according to the NPD Group. Experiencing double digit growth since 2014 face masks are the new must-have.

Brilliant face masks

Once a week the general advice is to treat your skin to a face mask. Cleanse the skin, exfoliate and apply. Choose one according to what your skin needs – whether it’s to calm, nourish or reduce oil or regulate sebum.

Totally Taranaki

THE STORY:  I discovered this gem of a face masque in an art gallery in Taranaki, New Zealand. Using the very best of local ingredients, in particular the volcanic mineral clay, Tailor Masque harnesses the properties of Bentonite Clay (more about that below). So, whilst touring the Govett Brewster Gallery in Taranaki (check it out – it’s fab) I was given a little sachet sample of the face mask. It travelled half way around the world in my soap bag (forgotten and unloved) until last week. I found it, reminisced about my trip to New Zealand and then promptly applied the mask.

I am sure a pot of this would have me looking tip top. THE SCIENCE: Bentonite Clay is an ancient volcanic ash deposit and Tailor Skincare sources it in New Zealand.
