Woman hoping to bounce back from decade of drinking and smoking with sheet mask

A 34-YEAR-OLD woman believes she can reverse the damage inflicted by years of fags and booze with a rejuvenating face mask.

Eleanor Shaw of Leeds discovered the hydrating and plumping sheet mask in Superdrug while looking for ways to lessen the toll chain-smoking her way through her twenties has taken on her skin.

She said: “I stared in the mirror this morning, after another midweek bender, while I was reheating last night’s burger in the microwave, and thought: I’ve got to do something about the way I’m treating my body.

“It was one of those wake up calls where I either have to completely overhaul my lifestyle, or turn to at-home beauty treatments that have really comforting words on the packaging.

“This mask is not only ‘anti-ageing’ and ‘restorative’, it also contains ‘vital ingredients’. It’ll turn back the decades. When I go and buy wine this lunchtime, I’ll probably get ID-checked for having the pale, unblemished skin of a toddler.

“Though I’ll settle for nobody knowing I’m regularly up until 2am with Netflix, a litre of Jack Daniels and a six-pack of Wotsits.”

She added: “How long do you have to keep this thing on for? Can I smoke through it?”
