Something I love doing but haven't done nearly enough (if even at all this year) is regularly use face masks. They're great for using weekly to give your skin a treat and help target any problem areas.

Problem skin? Need a Quick Fix? Here’s the solution - wonder masks packed with hero ingredients to effortlessly and efficiently banish everyday skin issues.
Quick Fix Facials Anti-Blemish Mud Mask* for oily and spot prone skin.
The problems: Excess oil, congested, blemish prone skin or a general combinational skin type.
The solutions: dead sea mud – helps absorb and control oil production. Salicylic acid – helps draw out impurities and tighten the pores. Tea tree oil – helps to treat spots and prevent future blemishes.
Before using this I prep my skin my removing any makeup, cleansing and drying my face. I then apply a generous amount and leave for 10 minutes, or longer depending on what I'm doing. I remove it with hot water and flannel, then tone and moisturise like normal.
This mask contains really great ingredients for targeting blemishes. It's not too heavily scent, it just has a slightly fresh, clean scent to it. Also, as it's a mud mask so it sets when it dries. Trying to move your face always feels a little funny and makes for much amusement.
I actually really love this. Before using this I was having a fair few breakouts which were down to stress. It's like a vicious circle, the more I stressed the more I got them, which in turn made me stressed about those. After using this I find any blemishes I do have aren't at all painful and eventually went away. It really helped to calm my skin and get rid of any excess oils.
I think these masks are really great value. You get an average of 10 uses out of each tube, which works out a measly 49p per use. They currently have 5 different masks so there's one that's sure to fit your skin type. Definitely one I'll be buying and using regularly.
