DRY SKIN
Dry skin tends to be dull, tight and a bit flakey so to counteract this you need to use a product with plenty of hydrating qualities to replenish skin with moisture. Hydrating masks tend to be similar to think creams or gels and are often overnight products that need the time to fully soak in and boost skin’s moisture.

OILY SKIN
