Weleda Calendolon Ointment (£6.75, weleda.co.uk)

Dermalogica Multivitamin Power Recovery Masque (£34.50, dermalogica.co.uk)

Avene Eau Thermale Avene Soothing Moisture Mask (£11.50, boots.com)

Red, reactive, sensitive skin will love this soothing, softening mask. Apply the milky-white cream last thing at night after cleansing, wipe away any excess after 10-15 minutes and skin feels plump and rested by morning. It doesn’t feel sticky or heavy like some cream masks too.

HealGel Intensive (£37.50, healgel.co.uk)

The ultimate skin saving, SOS gel. Apply this fast-absorbing gel to burns, cuts, grazes and even irritated skin and it will sinks straight in and fast track healing. It also firms and plumps and regenerates the skin, so brilliant on stretch marks, old scars and UV damaged skin.

Laboratories Boiron Homeplasmine (£6, www.thisisbeautymart.com)

Until recently, this natural, homeopathic, calendula-based ointment could only be found in French pharmacies. Hurrah for its arrival in the UK, as it soothes all kinds of irritation – from insect bites, eczema, chapped lips, grazes and even super-dry skin. A little goes a long way.
