    My hands have been really dry lately, so I decided to treat myself to a hand mask. The gloves feel a little cold at first, but the sticker tabs at the wrists help seal the ends. And once they’re sealed, the heat from your hands make the mask super warm and help the serum sink deeper into your skin. I left them on for about 15 minutes and my hands were so soft afterward.
