Charcoal Anti-Pollution Face Masque by Sukin
Harnessing the purifying properties of bamboo charcoal, rooibos tea and willowherb, the clay- based masque by Sukin targets impurities to help keep pores clear. Bilberry, white tea and pomegranate impart antioxidants for a healthy glow, while quince aids in limiting shine and reducing the visible appearance of pores.
AQUIS towels and turbans are made from a unique fibre called AQUITEX. Hair is at its most vulnerable when wet, losing 60% of its strength due to keratin proteins absorbing all the water. The sooner the hair is dried naturally, the less it swells and stretches. The woven structure in AQUIS towels and turbans leads to faster drying time, meaning hair reaches a damp level quicker, where it starts to regain its strength. Because the hair cuticles are not being roughed up with a normal towel, they remain smooth, so colour and shine are retained.
£30 each for AQUIS turban and towel, or £35 for long hair towel. Available in four colours including white, chevron, cloudy berry and desert rose. Buy from www.aquishair.co.uk, www.beautyMART.com, www.feelunique.com and more online retailers.
