8 Of The Best Hydrating Face Masks For Winter

Best Hydrating Face Masks for Dry Skin | Space NK
It’s that time of the year when no matter what your skin type is, it is probably starting to feel a little bit dry, tight and maybe even itchy. As the cold weather sets in, we recommend switching up your skincare routine to give your skin more hydration and take good care of your skin barrier.

While you might use a good hydrating face mask all year round, it’s a product that really comes into its own using the autumn and winter months and in our opinion, is an absolute must in every skincare arsenal. Whether you like to use a face mask once a week or every evening to channel your best skin slugging, it is one of the easiest ways to top up hydration levels and soothe dry, irritated skin.

During the winter months, we reach for the formulas with deeply hydrating ingredients, think hyaluronic acid and ceramides to nourish the surface of the skin and work on the deeper layers. We’ve selected some of our favourites, read on for the hydrating face masks we really rate and will be using this winter.

Our Top Picks for the Best Hydrating Face Masks this Winter


Summer Fridays

Jet Lag Mask, £26.00

Best hydrating face mask for travel
Inspired by post-travel dry and dehydrated skin, the Jet Lag Mask helps to restore hydration within 15-20 minutes thanks to the blend of shea butter, glycerin and hyaluronic acid. Created by influencer Marianna Hewitt, Summer Fridays is all about formulating quick fixes to keep your skin glowing all day long. We love that you can keep the Jet Lag Mask on for a few minutes or you can leave it on overnight.



Water Sleeping Mask, £28.00

Best overnight hydrating face mask
We call this beauty sleep in a jar. Korean skincare brand Laneige is dedicated to quenching dry skin and this overnight mask is the proof. Apply a generous layer at night and let the glycerin and squalane work their magic. We guarantee you’ll wake up with hydrated and brighter skin. For even better hydration, pair with the Laneige Sleeping Lip Mask.


Drunk Elephant

F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Hydrating Mask, £48.00

Best plumping face mask
Give your skin a burst of energy with this Drunk Elephant cult favourite. Supercharged with electrolytes, this creamy formula is exactly what your skin needs when it’s starting to look dull and tired. This face mask is one of our favourites when we want our skin to look and feel plumper and bouncier.


Emma Lewisham

Supernatural Sleeping Face Mask, £74.00

Best hydrating face mask for sensitive skin
Made with glycerin, squalene and ceramides, Emma Lewisham’s Supernatural Sleeping Face Mask is supercharged with hydrating ingredients to plump, smooth and brighten skin overnight. The whipped texture gives the formula a luxurious feel, almost like enjoying a facial in the comfort of your home – the results aren’t too dissimilar either.


Farmacy Beauty

Honey Potion Plus Mask, £37.00

Best hydrating face mask for redness
Boasting the benefits of honey for skin, this Farmacy face mask not only hydrates the skin, but it also helps calm inflammation and reduce the appearance of redness and inflammation, as well as boost your skin barrier. We also love using the Farmacy Beauty Honey Halo Ultra-Hydrating Ceramide Moisturizer, £23.00 to give our skin similar care every day.


Dr. Jart+

Dermask Water Jet Vital Hydra Solution, £5.85

Best hydrating sheet mask
Instantly quench thirsty skin with this Dr Jart+ sheet mask. Infused with nourishing ingredients, this sheet mask deeply hydrated and plumps the skin, leaving it feeling well-hydrated. We love taking this on-the-go face mask if we’re travelling as all you need is 15 minutes to allow Dr. Jart's Super Vital Complex to refresh and revive skin.



Rose Deep Hydration Sleeping Mask, £52.00

Best cooling face mask
With rose petals and rosewater, this super soothing Fresh face mask helps to hydrate and calm skin. It’s perfect for when the cold weather and central heating take their toll on your skin, and it feels dry and tight. We also highly recommend this face mask if you have a big event ahead as it helps to depuff and brighten skin.



Velvet Sleeping Mask, £112.00

Best hydrating face mask for party prep
While Sisley-Paris Velvet Sleeping Mask has been formulated to use overnight – and is exceptionally good at reviving your skin while you sleep – we also reach for the potent formula if we have a special event where we want our skin to look its very best. The rich, buttery formula contains soothing honey and nourishing shea butter to help smooth, soften and hydrate skin. The result? Plumper, fresher looking skin. If we’re in a rush, we apply it while we’re doing our hair.
