Choosing a Facial Mask for Dry Skin

I'm a firm believer of using natural products for natural beauty. Most of my skincare products - especially face masks - come from the refrigerator, fruit basket, or pantry.

There’s no doubting the benefits and healing properties of using facial masks to gain healthy, glowing skin.

Picking out the right kind of mask for your skin type, however, is a very important first step.

You certainly wouldn’t use just any shampoo on your hair - you’d take the time to make sure you got one that was designed for your hair’s needs. Your skin has needs, too.

If you have oily skin, you need a facial mask that doesn’t cause the oil glands to secrete more oil and if you have dry skin, then you need a facial mask for helping your skin absorb and hold moisture.

Contrary to popular belief, dry skin is not always caused by a lack of having enough liquids in the body or environmental issues like irritants or living in a dry climate.

Sometimes dry skin develops due to heredity.

If you come from a line of family members who happen to have dry skin, then chances are you’ll also have it.

You can’t do anything about the genes you’ve been given.

Disease can also play a part in dealing with dry skin - some diseases (like diabetes) are known to cause dry skin problems.

I used to have 'normal' skin, with maybe a bit of an oily T zone until I was in my 40's and then my skin became very dry from the top of my head to the soles of my feet ---- mystery why, but it means I suddenly had to start slathering on moisturizer everywhere, for the first time in my life.

But I don't like it on my face, so I had to find products that help my skin to retain moisture and suppleness.

I like to slather on Aloe Vera gel on my face after a shower, and any time that my skin feels a bit dry.

Whatever the reason for your skin’s dryness, by using a facial mask for dry skin, you can restore the balance that you don’t have and get your skin to look smoother and better than ever before.

Dry skin is skin that has a problem holding on to the moisture that keeps skin supple.

You might notice white flakes of skin around your nose or eyebrows - especially in the cold temperatures because of the humidity changes.

Low humidity can cause skin to become drier.

Add chemicals like harsh soaps or some cosmetics, and your skin can start looking pretty parched.

When you have dry skin, you have to be careful that the products you use (especially on the face) aren’t counter-productive.

While using facial masks is good for making skin look healthy and younger, using one that makes dry skin worse wouldn’t be beneficial.

Always check the ingredients to make sure that the mask is okay to use on dry skin.

One ingredient in facial masks that’s great for people with dry skin is a mask that contains avocado.

This fruit is known for its moisturizing capabilities and is rich in vitamins that bring healing to skin.

It contains natural oils and vitamins that work to restore moisture and get rid of dryness.

Another ingredient to look for in a facial mask for dry skin is honey.

It’s also a moisturizer that can tighten skin without causing more dryness.

Look for clue words in facial mask products like hydration, moisturizing and restores.

Mixing certain natural ingredients like honey and avocado together can create a nice exfoliating mask that’s safe for your skin type.

On this site there are also some great recipes for home made skin facials and other natural beauty remedies and therapies.

The simplest facial is to just mash up an avocado and spread the pulp on your face.

Or you can simply smear some honey on your face with your fingers or a brush.

You can also paint on some natural Greek Yoghurt to your face for extra moisture.

So many of us are busy and it can be all too tempting to cut down on skin care - especially if it’s time consuming.

But it is important to learn how to reduce skin blemishes quickly with simple and safe methods and home remedies.

So what is your favorite way to hydrate your dry skin?

Do you make skin masks at home too like I do?
