Dr Michael Prager Urban Protect Acid Peel Mask - £150
This 'Urban Protect' mask is perfect for those concerned about skin tone, pigmentation and radiance. It contains three AHAs - Glycolic Acid, Lactic Acid and Mandelic Acid - that exfoliate and stimulate the turnover of epidermal cells for a softer, smoother and more refined complexion. It's also formulated with Salicylic Acid that's said to reduce pore size, blockages and spot formation, as well as Sodium Hyaluronate to increase moisture retention.

Illuminating Pearl Mask 50ml - Hydrating & Brightening - £39.95
This luxurious mask restores balance and harmony while creating the perfect beautifying ritual. Honey delivers complex nutrients and hydrating properties to visibly improve tone and radiance. Turmeric's bioactive compounds leave your skin feeling calm, making this mask ideal for sensitivities. Skin brightening pearl powder enhanced with uva ursi and licorice transforms your complexion to have an everlasting glow.

Turmeric - a long-revered super food known for its potent properties and skin loving nutrients, organic turmeric root oil boasts a wealth of anti oxidants and bio-active compounds that leave your complexion feeling calm, soothes and nourished.
Pearl - Traditionally pearl powder has been used in Chinese medicine to promote radiant, beautified skin for centuries. The impeccably-sourced pearl powder at the heart of this mask encourages topical glow and contains an antioxidant that boosts the efficacy of superoxide dismutase*, one of the strongest antioxidants in the body.
Mountain Wildflower Honey - this natural humectant from the Colorado mountains is equal parts nourishment, replenishment and purification. It helps absorb and retain moisture to the skin - plus it is rich in active enzymes and gluconic acid, a mild alpha hydroxy offering brightening properties.
Licorice and Uva Ursi - Licorice root extract and Uva Ursi act as a potent duo of skin-illuminators thanks to powerful, naturally occurring compounds that have been shown to improve the appearance of dark spots and temporary redness while soothing sensory complexions.

*Superoxide dismutase is an enzyme that helps break down potentially harmful oxygen molecules in cells, which might prevent damage to tissues. It is being researched to see if it can help conditions where oxygen molecules are believed to play a role in disease
