We are only a few weeks into winter and it has been a brutal one. Much of the country is experiencing colder than normal temperatures. That makes for a lot of exposed skin that dries out quickly. Make yourself a DIY Ski Mask before heading outside. This quick tutorial is so easy that anyone can make it.
DIY Ski Mask Hack
I do not like ski facemasks that are tight across the face because I feel like I am suffocating. This one is soft, comfortable and not tight.
We went walking out in 15-degree below zero temperatures the other day and the face mask was perfect. The knit fabric does get wet from your breath, but the way it hangs keeps it away from your mouth. You can see that it started to get some frozen crystals on it.
One shirt makes two masks, which is convenient for washing. While they are machine washable, I like to wash one out in the sink and hang dry after each use. The other is always available to wear.
While you are at it, make some easy Shoe Covers to protect your floors from your wet shoes.
