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. Then trudge out to Walmart and buy some Lubriderm to heal your dry winter skin.
DIY Ski Mask Hack
Lay your t-shirt out flat. Use a large or extra-large shirt for an adult. Smaller sizes will work for children.
Cut the sleeve of the shirt off just above the seam that attaches it the shirt.
How simple is that? I do not like ski facemasks that are tight across the face because I feel like I am suffocating. The knit fabric does get wet from your breath, but the way it hangs keeps it away from your mouth.
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 for wear.
Dry Skin Hack
While a ski mask is my hack for dealing with cold air, Lubriderm is my dry skin hack. Everyone in the family gets dry, cracked skin in the winter and Lubriderm helps reverse that.
Lubriderm has many varieties of lotion. We reach for the Daily Moisture Lotion.
Lubriderm offers Therapeutic Lotions and Men’s Lotions. Find the formula that is right for you at Walmart. Keep an eye out for Rollback pricing on Lubriderm.
