If you have read my blog for any amount of time, you will probably know that I am a skincare junkie and face masks are my ultimate favourite treat for my skin. I own far too many and am on a mission to use them up and then just keep a small number in rotation. Today, I am sharing my top three masks for my dry and dehydrated skin. These masks keep my skin congestion-free, exfoliated and hydrated. So let's get started!
First up is Omorovicza Deep Cleansing Mask, which is my most recent mask purchase but I have fallen hard for it. It is a gentle clay mask that deeply cleanses the skin without stripping it and it doesn't leave my skin red like some other clay masks do. It doesn't tingle but it does deeply cleanse so I wouldn't recommend using it the night before a big night out or wedding etc because if there is anything lurking, it will come to the surface. Unusually for a clay mask, this leaves my skin feeling hydrated and soft. It is expensive at £57, but I expect this pot to last about 6 months or possibly a little longer because a small amount goes a long way. I think that this mask would work for all skin types.
GLAMGLOW ThirstyMud is the most hydrating mask that I own. I like to use this as an overnight mask but if my skin is in need of some urgent moisture, I will whack it on for about 20 minutes. Afterwards, my skin always feels soft, silky and very hydrated. I absolutely adore the caramel scent, I love that it doesn't feel sticky on the skin and most of all, I love how plump my skin is when I use this mask. I tend to use this once or twice a week and couldn't be without it because dehydration and dryness are my biggest skin concerns.
Finally, I have my absolute favourite mask: Oskia Renaissance Mask. If I could only own one mask, then it would be this one. This uses fruit acids to gently exfoliate the skin and lactic acid to reduce the appearance of fine lines. It is perfect even if you ave sensitive skin and won't leave you red-faced. After cleansing, I apply this and leave for about 15-20 minutes before removing with warm water. My skin feels soft and looks clear, bright and more youthful. It is a product that gives instant, visible results. It doesn't require the use of a hydrating mask afterwards because this mask literally does it all. Simply the best mask ever. If you like Ren Glycolactic Radiance Renewal Mask, then you will LOVE this!
I would love to know if you have tried any of these masks or if there are some that you think I should try if you have a similar skin type to me? Please tell me in the comments below!
