The 5 Best Face Masks For Dry Skin


There is nothing quite like an evening of self-care, a glass of wine, and a rejuvenating face mask. But a mask does so much more for you than provide a night of relaxation, especially if you have dry skin! Whether it’s a sheet mask, leave on for 10-minutes mask, or overnight mask, it can provide essential deep hydration, combat dull skin, and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.

Fresh Rose Face Mask

Real rose petals provide instant hydration for dry skin with this 10-minute face mask from Fresh Beauty. It targets dryness and dullness, as well as smoothes and tones using ingredients like rosewater, cucumber extract, aloe vera, algae extract, and green tea. The lightweight formula can be used as often as necessary (daily if you really need it!) and even kept it in the fridge for an extra cooling effect upon application. Plus it’s free of sulfates, parabens, and phthalates!

Tatcha Luminous Dewy Skin Sheet Mask

If you’ve got dry or dull skin, this sheet mask from Tatcha has got you covered. Ultra-hydrating rice oils and botanical oils leave you fresh-faced with a dewy glow. Japanese anti-aging superfoods also reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Overall, this sheet mask delivers skin with 20 ml of moisture-packed serum. Simply apply, leave on for 15 minutes, and then remove it, rubbing the leftover serum into your skin – that’s it!

Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

This overnight gel mask is perfect to put on before you catch some z’s, recharging skin while you sleep. It’s deeply hydrating, addressing dullness and fine lines using concentrated Hydro Ionized Mineral Water and brightening skin with apricot and evening primrose extracts. A light scent of orange flower, rose, and sandalwood leave the senses calm and ready to rest. It actually won the Allure Best of Beauty award in 2017, so you know it’s everything it claims to be!

Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask

This clean beauty mask uses an electrolyte cocktail to plump and restore skin overnight. Key ingredients include niacinamide (improves uneven tone and signs of aging), sodium PCA (antioxidant-rich and a powerful humectant), and omega fatty acids (reduces redness and improves skin texture) to hydrate even the most parched skin. Drunk Elephant adds that “tiny beads loaded with vitamin F burst during application to deliver extra emollience and soothing hydration.” This mask is vegan, cruelty-free, and free of the “Suspicious 6”, which includes essential oils, drying alcohols, silicones, chemical sunscreens, fragrances/dyes, and SLS, making it a high-quality and good-for-you option.

Origins Drink Up Intensive Overnight Hydrating Mask

This clean beauty overnight mask leaves skin hydrated for up to 72 hours after a night of rest. Swiss Glacier water provides vital minerals, hyaluronic acid helps skin retain moisture, and avocado butter is rich in healthy fats and nutrients that provide deep hydration.
