If you have sensitive, reactive skin, we totally feel your pain. This is especially evident in the cold winter months where our complexions have a tendency to become even more reactive and dry. There’s nothing more frustrating than waking up to a random rash or irritation. A lot of the time it’s hard to even pinpoint where the irritation came from. Was is that new cleanser, makeup or sunscreen? Or maybe it’s just hormones. Who knows. One thing for certain is having a soothing mask on hand can be a skin saver. Here are 5 amazing masks that will help soothe and repair your irritated skin all winter long.
