Do you suffer from dry skin? Are you using retinols, or do you travel frequently? A good hydrating mask is something everyone can benefit from, whether you have dry skin or not. There a few different ways you can use these masks. Apply a thin layer at night and sleep with the mask in place of a night-time moisturizer and you will wake up with smooth, perfectly-hydrated skin.
Apply in the morning after you cleanse, leave on for 10-15 minutes, then cleanse or tissue off and proceed with your normal skin care regimen. Feel like you’re always on an airplane? Flying is very dehydrating to the skin. You can apply a mask at the beginning of your flight instead of a moisturizer, or use it once you touch down to combat your skin’s dehydration.
Everyone can benefit from a hydrating mask every now and then. Here are a few I recommend:
Sothys Hydradvance Mask
This mask contains two types of hyaluronic acid; one that penetrates the skin deeply, and one that sits on the top layer for an instantly smooth result.
Skinceuticals Hydrating B5 Mask
This mask contains hyaluronic acid as well as Vitamin B5 that is reparative and provides the skin with essential nutrients.
ARCONA Wine Hydrating Mask
This mask contains nourishing macadamia nut oil which mimics the skin’s natural oil, as well as hyaluronic acid.
