When skin feels dry, tight, and itchy, sometimes a regular moisturizer just won’t do. You need something that will drench skin in a moisture-replenishing formula and help strengthen and protect your natural barrier system. What your skin needs is a moisturizing face mask.
While a standard moisturizing lotion or cream will provide long-lasting hydration, a moisturizing mask sends a concentrated shot of moisture to the skin for an immediate improvement you can see and feel. They also can help temporarily soothe and calm irritation and the look of redness. Not to mention the fact that they provide intense moisturization without leaving behind a greasy, heavy residue. Apply, wait for a few minutes, then rinse it all away to reveal plump, dewy, soft skin.
While all skin needs moisture, different skin types require different levels of hydration and supporting ingredients. Here, we’ve rounded up the best moisturizing face mask for dry, oily, and combination skin.
Dry Skin: Avocado Nourishing Hydration Mask
Whether your skin is naturally dry or feeling dehydrated, this green mask will give it the nourishment it needs to get back to peak hydration. The creamy formula features Evening Primrose Oil, Avocado Fruit Extract, and omega-rich Avocado Oil to intensely hydrate skin and leave it feeling soft and replenished with a healthier look. It also helps prevent water loss by sealing in moisture. To use, scoop out a generous amount of the mask, then work it between your fingertips until it feels smooth and creamy. Spread on your skin, wait 15 minutes, then rinse with warm water and massage gently in a circular motion. Use it up to three times a week, depending on how dry your skin feels.
Oily Skin: Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask
Yes, oily skin needs some serious hydration, too. The trick is picking a mask that delivers moisture without clogging your pores. The answer to that riddle is our Calendula & Aloe Soothing Hydration Mask. With a lightweight gel texture, it glides on the skin and sinks in, delivering its potent blend of soothing botanicals in a burst of cool refreshment that sinks in to plump and revitalize with a mix of handpicked Calendula Petals and Aloe Vera. Smooth a thin layer across the skin, wait five minutes, then rinse with warm water and massage gently in a circular motion. Use it thrice weekly to restore a healthy-looking complexion.
Combination Skin: Ultra Facial Overnight Mask
If you’re struggling with skin that is both dry and oily, our overnight sleeping mask is for you. Unlike traditional masks, which are meant to be rinsed away, this innovative formula stays on the skin while you slumber. It’s potent mix of Glacial Glycoprotein Extract, Fountain Plant, and Desert Plant Extract provide immediate and lasting hydration, strengthen skin’s moisture barrier, and replenish skin’s water reserves for a healthier-looking complexion. To use, apply a generous amount before bedtime, let sit for 10 minutes, then tissue off (don’t wash!) the excess and head to sleep. In the morning, wash as usual and follow with your usual morning skincare regimen.
