Since we’ve been experiencing rather dry skin as of late, we thought it was about time to give a hydrating face mask or two a try. After all, a little extra moisture can only help, right? To find out which masks were worthy of trying, we reached out to dermatologists Dendy Engelman, MD, and Marisa Garshick, MD, for their favorite dry-skin face masks.

According to Engelman, the best masks for people experiencing dry, flaky skin are “sleeping packs and or overnight masks,” as she says our body rebalances hydration as we sleep. She further adds, “When the body is in a deep, restful sleep, the skin’s metabolism increases and cell turnover and renewal escalates.”

While Engelman notes the height for skin regeneration is “10 p.m. and 2 a.m,” Engelman and Garshick have recommended a variety of hydrating face masks that can be done at your convenience—be it while you sleep, while you’re taking a shower, or 20 minutes before work.
