Our skin tends to be more sensitive during the winter period and cold air and wind can make it extra dry. It is important to pay some extra attention and nurture it during these months. First tips we can give you is to drink a lot of water and to skip long showers (they dry out your skin), but since some additional attention might be needed we decided to share with you our five favourite homemade masks recipes that are super easy to make and give great results.
