You know those people who are like, “I’d rather be cold than hot”? Yeah, that’s fucking bullshit. No one likes sweating, obviously, but who the fuck likes flaky skin, chapped lips, and possibly getting hypothermia? Um, no one in their right mind, that is. Winter is harsh, rough, and waits for no one. It dries out our skin, hair, and will to live by the time we leave the house, and running to the nearest heater afterwards doesn’t make it any better. Drastic changes in temperatures can really fuck up our skin, so it’s v important that we
spend a lot of money stock up on everything we need to prevent that from happening. After all, you never know when a photo opportunity will present itself. It’s already brick tits out, so here are the best hydrating face masks you need this winter so your skin doesn’t peel off come December.

nightly occasional bottle of rosé. The mask also reduces unwanted wrinkles and refreshes your skin to make it feel extra soft. Use two to three times a week for like, the best results.
