The best celebrity face mask selfies

No matter what beauty look they rock on the red carpet, stars from Doutzen Kroes to Chrissy Teigen always have radiant, flawless skin. It seems they share the same beauty trick in achieving their healthy glow, turning to face masks to boost their complexions.

Often giving fans a sneak peek of their beauty routines, skincare-savvy women from Ellie Goulding to Miranda Kerr often share behind-the-scenes snaps of themselves enjoying a spot of pampering with a face mask.


Chrissy Teigen often gives fans a glimpse of her beauty routine which includes face masks

Sheet masks are a major beauty craze at the moment, with models Karlie Kloss and Adriana Lima regularly giving their skin a perk with these luxurious masks. Unlike regular face masks, these sheets – made of soft cotton or fibres- are soaked in light serum-like substances. Worn for 10-20 minutes, the serum is slowly absorbed into the skin. Plus, the sheets are mess-free making for an ideal solution for those who are often on the go.

There are plenty of benefits from including a face mask in your skincare routine. These include helping skin clear up by deep-cleansing and refining pores, as well as increasing hydration and softening the skin cells to give them more elasticity. Regularly using face masks can also reduce signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and brown spots, often leaving you with a softer and smoother skin texture.

Ellie Goulding and Dougie Poynter recently enjoyed a night in of pampering with eye masks

It's not just full face masks which can give your skin a boost – some stars also turn to eye masks to help with puffy eyes and dark lines after a hectic few days. Ellie Goulding recently revealed boyfriend Dougie Poynter joined her for a night of pampering, quipping that he was not going to be happy when she shared the photo.

"Girlz night in (he's going to kill me)," she jokingly captioned a photo of the pair with their masks on Instagram. "Nah but Rodial Dragon's Blood eye masks are seriously good. I bloody love @Rodialskincare."
