There's no better time than the middle of winter to try self-heating hair, makeup and skincare products. From a spicy lip oil to a warm clay mask, these 11 must-haves will give you a temporary reprieve from the polar vortex.
Bright On2 of 12
H2O+'s brightening mask targets discoloration and dull skin, all while providing your skin with a gentle warming sensation. It contains ingredients like sophora root and algae, which are supposed to inhibit melanin production and prevent dark spots.

Worth Salt3 of 12
Exfoliate dry, flaky skin with Bliss's self-heating salt body scrub. The benefits are twofold: Sea salt sloughs off dead cells, while eucalyptus and rosemary oils hydrate your skin, leaving it smooth and soft.

Heat opens up hair cuticles so hydrating ingredients can absorb into each strand and moisturize. On the flipside, cold water's known to close cuticles. Apply L'Oréal's repair treatment to your locks, allow it to heat up for up to three minutes and rinse out for silkier, smoother strands.

In addition to hair cuticles, heat can also help open up your pores. That's the idea behind Biore's cleanser, which warms your skin on contact. Then the cleanser's ingredients, like clay and salicylic acid, work to clear skin of dirt and grime.
