It's easy to look like a zombie as soon as January hits. You're shivering, chapped, pale as a milky, startled ghost and swaddled in insulating fabrics; you just want your chafed face to look less like a piece of used sandpaper and more like a dewy tulip, fresh out of the ground on a warm spring day. And because your skin is so dry, you're starting to get that particularly cruel breed of acne that only crops up when the temperatures are freezing. (I'm really psyched for the winter — can't you tell?)

I recently discovered this tea tree-infused sheet mask from the geniuses at Tony Moly, and used it just after a particularly terrible travel day. Just as the product promised, it transformed my splotchy, tired skin into something noticeably more moisturized. The green tea leaf extract is a time-honored and natural anti-inflammatory agent, meaning that my small flock of airplane-induced zits looked less aggressive than earlier in the day. My face was thirsty, but after just 20 minutes, it was quenched.
