In need of an instant skin pick-me-up? Mark a masque night into your diary, stat

Once relegated to the too-hard basket, at-home masques are making a comeback. Just take a look at your Instagram feed - amongst the yoga poses and Santorini getaways, you'll find a host of ghost-like models proudly displaying their product-smothered faces. Them: #seeilookgoodnomatterwhat. Us: #f**kyou.

Blame the model's masquerading or the rise of labour-intensive (but incredibly effective) Korean beauty regimens, but the masque is moving up in the world. And with good reason: there's nothing better to quickly revitalise and replenish your skin after winter has had its wicked way with it. So book yourselves in for a night with nothing but Netflix for company and pick your poison from one of the guaranteed face-savers below. Masque selfie optional.

We always look to Ella Baché for results-driven skincare, and their brand spanking new Extreme Regeneration Mask takes the cake. Similar in concept to Korean gel masques, the formula moulds to your face like a second skin, infusing hyaluronic acid, collagen and bio-cellulose to deliver intense rehydration and cell regeneration. Skin appears refreshed, soothed and beautifully hydrated - but you'll look like something out of Aliens as you wear it.

Launched just this week, French skincare brand By Terry's newest addition to their luxe Cellularose range is a brightening masque that doubles as an ultra-rich night cream. Ideal for winter-weary skin in need of a radiance boost, it can be applied onto face and - added bonus - the eye area, and left on for 10 minutes or even overnight. The formula capitalises on roses' native cells to work its magic.
