1. Java Plum Avocado Mask

The Java Plum Avocado Mask by JUARA is so moisturizing that you may find it's hard to keep your fingers off your face. You'll likely notice the immediate improvement in skin moisture levels and suppleness.

This magnificent mix of mango, avocado oil, java plum, shea butter, and banana brings a big hydration boost to your beauty ritual. The nutrient-rich botanicals deliver lipids, essential fatty acids, vitamins, and minerals, which are all critical for skin health.

The fruit in this formula also possesses skin-revitalizing polyphenols. If you're not familiar with this term, let's take a minute to sing the praises of polyphenols.

Polyphenols are a family of antioxidants that help protect the skin against ultraviolet (UV) radiation and also enhance skin cell growth. Including polyphenols in your skincare regimen will help slow the signs of aging and help skin look healthy.

While there's still no fountain of youth, this mask may be the next best thing.

You can use this product as a mask or in place of a night cream. It works wonders for dry and sensitive skin, and in fact, can benefit any skin type.

With repeated use, the skin barrier will be strengthened and supported.

Whenever you feel dryness, tightness, or the need for deeper hydration, just apply this mask to cleansed skin. There's no need to rinse it off, as it absorbs into the skin and works from the inside out to give you that glow.

All of this helps explain why the Java Plum Avocado Nourishing Mask is one of the best hydrating face masks for dry skin.

2. Radiance Enzyme Mask

Dead skin cells and dirt can build up and block pores, making it harder for your skin to do its job of moisture regulation, protecting you against the elements, and more. That's why it's important to exfoliate.

To ditch dull skin and radiate your inner beauty outward, you'll absolutely want to try this next skincare essential.

The Radiance Enzyme Scrub, Cleanser & Enzyme Mask is a multi-tasking skin-beautifying superstar. It will decongest pores, clarify your complexion, and balance uneven skin tone and texture.

This rejuvenating formula draws on several skincare staples from the Indonesian beauty and wellness tradition that inspires the JUARA brand. From candlenut oil to turmeric to clove flower, this product harnesses nature's gifts like no other.

Apple enzymes dissolve dead skin cells and stimulate skin cell turnover. This is in addition to natural exfoliants like bamboo and jojoba beads that gently exfoliate and scrub surface debris to reveal softer and smoother skin.

Turmeric, clove flower, and the plentiful vitamin C in this recipe help protect and brighten skin, keeping the complexion clear and youthful.  

Cinnamon, with its natural antibacterial properties, has healing effects and is especially great if you have oily skin.

Candlenut oil makes this hydrating mask even more nourishing, as it is one of the best body oils out there. It has linoleic and linolenic acid, which helps moisturize and soothe dry skin. This oil increases moisture levels by forming a physical barrier that prevents trans epidermal water loss (TEWL).

When all these ingredients get together, they make a most excellent mask.

3. Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask

We've all left a clay face mask on for longer than the recommended time, only to take a look in the mirror and see a veritable desert landscape, complete with cracks (though probably sans tumbleweed).

If you want to have the benefits of a purifying face mask without that undesirable desiccation, we have the perfect answer.

JUARA Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask is a surprisingly hydrating face mask if you're used to other brands that contain clay. However, our unique formula includes the more mild kaolin clay, as well as moisturizing elements like candlenut oil and glycerin.

Candlenut oil, as we alluded to above, is a super nourishing oil, and a great addition to any face mask. Turmeric contains antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties that protect skin from free radical damage.

Glycerine, like hyaluronic acid or aloe vera, is a hydrating humectant that draws moisture to the uppermost layer of the epidermis. This is important if you want to defeat extremely dry skin.

Kaolin clay is generally considered to be a mild and gentle clay commonly used in skin care. It works well at absorbing excess oil or sebum in acne-prone skin, but can also (especially if combined with certain ingredients) help manage dry skin.

Ranella Hirsch, a board-certified dermatologist based in Boston, says that while there are "no real contraindications" to using it on our skin, you may not want to use clay too frequently if you suffer from very dry skin.

However, if you have combination skin or acne-prone skin, and still deal with dryness, you should try a hydrating clay face mask for dry skin, like our Turmeric Antioxidant Radiance Mask. It brings the benefits of a clarifying clay mask without the hardening or stripping effect.

Try it out and see for yourself. When you hold your face in your palms you'll be pleased with how soft and supple your skin has become.

4. Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask

With their Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask, Youth To The People has formulated a real winner. When it comes to a crowd-pleasing face mask for dry skin, they've certainly checked several boxes.

Much like JUARA, this eco-friendly company abstains from animal testing and its products don't contain parabens or phthalates.

Youth To The People Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask combats dryness and evens out skin tone and texture. Recommended as an overnight mask, this product brings several anti-aging benefits and delivers deep hydration while you dream away. 

This face mask for dry skin contains maqui, a powerhouse when it comes to antioxidant protection. Antioxidants benefit all skin types, and are particularly important for sensitive skin that's prone to problems like acne or rosacea. 

The Vitamin C used in this formula will provide additional relief for irritated skin. Vitamin C reduces inflammation and calms skin, helping to brighten and beautify your complexion. 

There's also prickly pear packed in this mix, quenching parched skin with its hydrating properties and reducing signs of redness.

To get super hydrated skin, search no farther than squalane, which is made to mimic squalene (with an e), a lipid naturally produced by our skin cells. Since squalene production slows as we age, it's great to find effective emollients like squalane, to help takes its place. 

If you're hoping to get a handle on your dry skin, Superberry Hydrate + Glow Dream Mask may be a good choice.

5. Ultra Repair Instant Oatmeal Mask

When searching for a self-care treat that will aid with relaxation, we often seek out soothing chamomile or skin-calming oatmeal. Both of these ingredients are great for sensitive skin, but let's focus on one oatmeal mask that stands out from the crowd.

First Aid Beauty's Ultra Repair Oatmeal Mask is a favorite within skin care circles. Made with calming colloidal oatmeal, skin-conditioning sea buckthorn, and softening shea butter, this hydrating face mask is a must-try.

Oats contain starches and beta-glucan that attract moisture to the skin, harnessing water in the environment and other layers of the skin to make the surface extra supple. They also help provide a protective barrier that keeps moisture from escaping. 

Many folks with a combination skin type appreciate how a colloidal oatmeal face mask gently exfoliates that top layer of debris while soothing skin and reinforcing the natural moisture barrier.

Multiple ingredients make this mix rich in antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties. Even so, the makers of this mask went above and beyond, adding their own antioxidant booster featuring feverfew, licorice root, and white tea extracts.

A mask like this will purify clogged pores and leave skin glowing. 

It's one of the best face masks as far as affordability and those with sensitive skin will appreciate that it doesn't contain any artificial fragrances.

6. SkinActive Super Hydrating Sheet Mask 

Whether you want to use a sheet mask, apply a hydrating gel formula on your face, or love a good clay mask, there are a whole host of hydrating face masks out there for you. 

Many people prefer sheet masks simply for the clear instructions and easy clean-up. 

There's no guessing about how much product to put on your face, and when you're done with a sheet mask you don't have to hang your head over the sink to wash away the remnants. It's as easy as lifting it off your face and tossing it in the trash.

Garnier's SkinActive Super Hydrating Sheet Mask is a water-based sheet mask featuring hydrating hyaluronic acid and pomegranate extract. It's filled with fatty acids and antioxidants that give you gorgeous, glowy skin. 

Hyaluronic acid is found in the skin naturally, but an additional application can further increase its ability to keep skin hydrated and happy. Hyaluronic acid leads to that lovely dewy look we long for, and brings a bit of buoyancy and suppleness to the surface of the skin.

Sheet masks are often a fun, affordable option that can be used to enhance a mother-daughter spa night or for a quick skin-refresher on any given evening. 

7. Rose Face Mask by Fresh

Skincare products from Fresh frequently address the maladies of dry, oily, or combination skin that's acne-prone. In other words, they have something for pretty much any skin type.

The Rose Face Mask is mild enough for those with sensitive skin, but powerful enough to make a difference in skin tone and texture. It introduces moisture with ample amounts of aloe vera and microalgae extract in a silky gel.

This hydrating mask has both a soothing and plumping effect due not only to the aforementioned ingredients, but also because of the hyaluronic acid, cucumber extract, and rosewater.

After you apply this gel mask, you'll notice an immediate cooling sensation. This cooling formula calms skin and reduces the inflammation often associated with outbreaks or other issues that occur when you have combination skin.

In addition, green tea and other antioxidant-packed ingredients present in this mask can combat oxidative stress to the skin and help restore a more youthful appearance.

This mask contains actual rose petals, which not only adds to its luxurious look, but brings skin-supporting vitamins A and C. 

Rose has many other properties that make it great for tackling dry skin and - along with ingredients like aloe vera - perfect for supporting the skin barrier.

8. Rapid Response Detox Masque

If you're wondering what type of face mask is best for dry skin that occasionally breaks out like you're back in high school, you'll want to hear more about this next product.

The Rapid Response Detox Masque by Renée Rouleau is one of those face masks that manages to do it all.

Sometimes self-care is about knowing yourself well. If you're like a lot of folks, when you're stressed out and sleeping poorly, you can almost set a clock to the coming breakout. Pimples always seem to pop up just when you didn't need one more thing to worry about.

However, if you can catch it in time, this face mask means serious business when it comes to breakouts. 

With tea tree oil and two-percent salicylic acid, this formula fights bacteria and helps slough off dead skin cells before they can clog pores. Meanwhile, the allantoin and sodium hyaluronate (which is a type of hyaluronic acid) soothe skin and saturate it with moisture. 

Some essential oils, like tea tree oil, have been found to consistently reduce the occurrence of breakouts, when diluted or used with other nourishing ingredients. Beta hydroxy acids, like salicylic acid, penetrate the skin's pores, diving deep to unclog excess sebum and impurities. 

Some face masks over-dry or don't provide any help as far as acne. This hydrating mask meets all your sensitive skin needs. 

This video with a DIY moisturizing mask features many of the ingredients we've mentioned above. Of course, you could choose from our list of favorites and save yourself a bit of a mess, but it's up to you!
