How to Use a Clay Mask When You Have Dry Skin
Before applying a clay mask, start by cleansing your skin. For dry skin, reach for a facial cleanser that hydrates and soothes, like the L’Oréal Paris Micellar Cleansing Water Complete Cleanser for Normal to Dry Skin. Saturate a cotton pad with the micellar water and wipe the pad across your face. Then, to use any of our best clay masks for dry skin, apply an even layer to clean, dry skin, leave on for 10-15 minutes, then rinse off thoroughly with lukewarm water and pat dry. Use three times a week for best results. Once you’ve rinsed your clay mask off, finish with a moisturizer, like the L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Normal/Dry Skin or L’Oréal Paris Hydra Genius Daily Liquid Care for Extra Dry Skin.
