“Cold air, harsh winds, and pumped-up indoor heat can increase facial tissue sensitivity and leave the skin feeling and looking tight, dry, and flaky,” according to Refinery29. In other words, just about all U.S. men and women can expect to have some problems with their skin during frigid winter months — and that’s where facial sheet masks, paraben free skin care, and other, at-home spa products come in. Carefully attending to skin during the winter can prevent even the worst symptoms, from dry, tight skin to eczema. Here are a few pointers for keeping your skin look its best year-round.
Keep Showers Warm, Not Scalding
When it is literally freezing outside, it can be more than tempting to crank up the hot water in the shower. You may get a few minutes of comfort, but your skin won’t thank you for it. “Hot water removes natural oils from the skin, and the more oils removed, the drier the skin becomes,” The Huffington Post writes.
Keep Your Face And Skin Moisturized
Of course, the best way to combat the drying effects of the cold winter air is to moisturize — and hydrating facial masks and facial sheet masks are one of the best ways to do it. Using portable, pre-cut facial sheets, consumers can re-hydrate from just about anywhere, even on the go (such as on business trips), too. The sheets, typically made out of cotton and other soft fabrics, fit the contours of users’ faces. They have a thin layer of ingredients to nourish and moisturize skin. They’re easy to clean up and easy to stow in a purse or a suitcase on your way out of the door.
During winter, all of us risk getting dry, cracked, and itchy skin. Keep your skin looking and feeling great by keeping showers and baths at a reasonable temperature and moisturizing with convenient products, like on-the-go sheet masks.
