As you probably already guessed, we’re pretty fond of dry masks—and for good reason. For starters, they’re super customizable which means they’re great for just about any skin type. Also, upon activating a dry mask, you’re unleashing all the benefits the ingredients have to offer, which in turn, ensures the potency of each ingredient. So if you’re wondering what exactly you can mix our dry masks with besides just water—then you’re in luck! We’ve rounded up our favorite mixing agents below, all of which can most likely be found right in your pantry or fridge.
This one is kind of a no-brainer, but still worth mentioning because both of our masks have been formulated to be extremely effective with just mixing in a few teaspoons of water and this works for just about any skin type.
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apple cider vinegar has gotten quite the hype over the last few years—but for good reason! If you tend to have more oily, breakout prone skin, then mixing your dry mask with some apple cider vinegar may be the answer you’ve been looking for. It helps to balance out your pH as well as calm any active breakouts. If you’re nervous to use apple cider vinegar (since it can be a bit strong) try mixing with a little bit of water and vinegar instead.
If you’re looking for something with a little more exfoliation power then Greek yogurt is the one for you. It naturally has lactic acid, which helps to break down dead skin cells, which is key if you have skin that's more on the oily or combination side. Another tip—you can mix the mask then pop it in the fridge for a few minutes to make it extra cooling (which feels great on a hot day btw).
This option is super moisturizing and perfect if you have dry or sensitive skin. Honey is a humectant which means it helps to retain and attract moisture, so mixing it with either of our dry masks means you’ll be left with soft and hydrated skin.
Aloe is another great option if you have dry or sensitive skin and is also a humectant, which not only makes it moisturizing but incredibly soothing. You can also mix a little bit of aloe and honey together with the mask if you’re looking for a little extra hydration.
