5 Hydrating Masks To Replenish Dry Winter Skin
To mask or not to mask? This is a seriously important question as we are edging closer to winter and the air is getting drier by the day. By the late fall, we are definitely noticing a drop in humidity, and our formerly supple summer skin is turning dull, flaky, dry, and tight. Colder temperatures suck moisture out of the skin, so it’s even more important to swap your products with picks that hydrate deeply and form a barrier to prevent further moisture loss.
If you seriously want to replenish your skin, then you definitely need to mask. Many of us think that applying our daily moisturizer is enough, but truthfully, as we get into the colder months, we are losing more moisture in the top layers of our skin than we can replenish with just a lotion or a cream. Our selection of top-rated masks not only infuse hydration into the skin, but use botanicals, active ingredients, and powerful technology to replenish that moisture barrier and bring back suppleness and glow to your complexion!
