    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    The main ingredients are shea butter and oat, and it's unscented, so it won't irritate your skin. You can also get a pair of foot masks, if you want to show your tootsies some love.

    My hands are pretty dry already and with increased hand washing, my skin is feeling extra parched. I normally bathe my hands in cream, but it's just not enough. Enter these ~handy~ hydrating masks. First, I love that they're gloves. I've tried other masks that have a mitten shape and it's hard to sit still for 15 minutes while they work their magic. With these gloves I still have a bit of dexterity, so I can work on my laptop, clean, or whatever I need to do in the meantime. And afterwards, my hands feel so soft and moisturized.

    Get a pair from Amazon Canada for $4.99 (as an add-on item).

    7. This vegan conditioner that uses coconut oil and ylang ylang flower oil to nourish and repair your dry and damaged locks. Reviewers say it prevents hair from getting tangled and frizzy. It also helps repair and prevent split ends.

    12. This game-changing face mask that'll help clear up your acne and blackheads. Clay masks are a great way to detox your skin, and this one uses bentonite clay to deep clean your pores.

    Alice Prendergast/BuzzFeed, BuzzFeed / Via buzzfeed.com

    "Using it is simple: you mix the powdery clay with equal parts water or apple cider vinegar (I like to do a combo of the two), and apply it to your face as you would any other face mask. When this stuff starts to dry you are in for an experience. It freezes your face in place and tightens up every pore, and makes you seriously look like a lizard queen (see above photo for reference). I’ll be honest with you, the feeling is not that pleasant, but hold on – the end result is worth it. You can also just do spot treatments if you don't want to cover your whole face." —Alice Prendergast

    "This mascara feels like it actually conditions my lashes when I have it on, and never feels crispy or clunky (like some do). Like, have you ever put on mascara and thought, frig, is this why my eyelashes are stunted? Yeah, that does NOT happen with this one. It also comes off super easily at night, which is great when I'm feeling lazy and don't want to deal with a full-on scrub down." —Brittany Barber

    22. This tube of rich moisturizer that your dry skin will soak up like a sponge. It’ll soothe irritated skin, so you can use it after shaving — and it can double as a primer or face mask, too.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed

    I keep coming back to this moisturizer because it's just so good. It has a rich, creamy texture without feeling thick or greasy and it's so gentle that it's the one of the only products I use when my skin is freaking out. I also love how multipurpose this product is. I can use a dollop for my daily moisturizer or use a bit more as a sleeping face mask before bed. Plus, it's so hydrating and makes my skin so plump and smooth that I can skip my primer before I apply makeup. I honestly refuse to run out of this product because I don't know what my skin would do without it.

    Get it from Skinstore or $22.88.

    23. The Original Makeup Eraser that’ll remove all your makeup with water — just water! It works gently to remove makeup, dirt, and excess oil from your face, and can be washed easily by hand or in the washing machine when it gets dirty.

    @makeuperaser / Via instagram.com, @makeuperaser / Via instagram.com

    I love using this on the days when I'm feeling really lazy. Instead of using my usual cleansing oil or micellar water, I can wipe away my makeup with this cloth in a couple of minutes. I also love using it when I do a clay mask. It’s so much easier to get the residual product off my face!

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $26. Available in two colours.

    24. These acne patches that'll treat even the largest pimples overnight, so you'll wake up with clearer skin. They're lined with hydrocolloid to help draw out oil and bacteria, without irritating your skin.

    30. And finally, this tube of Caudalie hand cream that'll save your hands from drying out like the Sahara Desert. It's made with grape seed oil, shea butter, and avocado extract to soften, protect, and moisturize your dry hands and cuticles, without feeling heavy or greasy.

    Kaysey Davis/BuzzFeed, @caudalie / Via instagram.com

    I've been washing my hands a lot recently (AS WE ALL SHOULD BE) and it was starting to take a toll on my skin. My hands were so dry and the skin felt really tight immediately after washing. So I started using some Caudalie hand cream, and it's become the second step in my hand-washing routine. The texture is light and it absorbs really quickly, without leaving behind a sticky or greasy feeling. And it has a warm citrus scent that I find very subtle and soothing. My hands look and feel moisturized and soft, and I'll definitely be restocking once I finish the tube.

    Get it from Sephora Canada for $12+. Available in two sizes.
