11 Super Calming Face Mask Ingredients to Soothe Winter’s Dry Skin

September 15, 2017

Skin feeling parched? These face mask ingredients combat dryness and quench even the thirstiest of complexions. Just sit back, relax, and let them work their moisturizing magic.

We're betting you're already familiar with hyaluronic acid (HA), but just in case it's new to you, here's what you need to know: One of the best-known and most effective hydrators—it holds 1,000 times it's own weight in water! While HA is present in the human body and is essential for maintaining moisture in skin tissue, as we age, we produce less, which can result in dryness, loss of elasticity, and wrinkles. (Remember, what your skin needs varies by decade. Don't miss the skincare rules for every stage of your life.) Which is why so many brands have started harnessing the youth-boosting power of hyaluronic acid in facial formulas ranging from serums and lotions to face masks, like Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Hyaluronic Marine Hydrating Modeling Mask, Edible Beauty Bloom of Youth Infusion Mask, and patchology FlashMasque Facial Sheets - Hydrate.
