Wash it Away
Most derms agree that a basic face wash is best. This one is ideal for sensitive skin and it cleans without drying.

Even if your skin is pretty tough most of the time, it can get sensitive in winter. If you've noticed it getting red and irritated easily, switch to a special moisturizer like this one, which contains softening cotton extract.

Don't Forget Your Lashes
Think about when you wash your face and there are lashes left behind in the sink (and no, we're not talking about falsies). Depressing, right? This makeup remover is so hydrating-with silk proteins and cornflower water-that it actually strengthens your lashes so they'll grow longer and thicker.
