Whether it’s the ice-cold temperatures, the wind chill, or the dry heat of our home, our winter skin is exposed to all the elements, which can cause severe damage to its barrier. As a result, it tends to become dryer, duller, and in desperate need of some moisture. Fortunately, face masks are a great way to nourish the skin while quenching its thirst with a high concentration of active ingredients. We’ve rounded up 10 of our favourite products – from sheet masks to gel masks – you can apply one to two times a week in addition to your skincare routine. You’re welcome!
