What are the Best Face Masks for Dry Skin?
If you suffer from dry skin, you know that slathering on your favourite heavy-duty moisturiser sometimes is not enough to smooth over dry patches and return your complexion to its former radiance.
There are multiple reasons why you may have dry skin: you’re exfoliating too much, using harsh cleansers, using acne products that can disrupt your skin’s barrier and dry it out even further. Or it could come down to the weather and your genetics.
Sometimes, your skin needs an extra boost. And that’s where face masks come in.
Hydrating masks are particularly great for dry skin. Unlike other face masks, hydrating ones are usually rich in ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, which can provide a plumping affect without harming your skin’s outer layer.
Other dry skin boosters to look out for are plant oils and butters, vitamin E, glycerin and aloe vera.
