Spa Day? YES WAY!
From organizing a girl’s night in on Zoom to setting aside a little “me” time for self-care, spa treatments are mood-boosting, even when you DIY. So start pampering YOU with these indulgent, skin nourishing and easy to do spa masks.
Hope or Hype: Do face and body masks really deliver big-time results in as little as 15 minutes? Experts say YES! “Masks deliver concentrated ingredients into the skin, where they do the most good,” says NY-based cosmetologist Wendy Fatticone. “This is especially true with masks that have an outer “wrap”, like K-beauty sheet masks, or hand mask gloves.”
Face up: Set aside some me time and light a candle, brew a cup of tea, turn on soft music, spread a charcoal mask on your face, and relax while the mask goes to work... it’s that easy! Charcoal draws out impurities like dirt and oil to give pores a “breather”. A good one: Skin Polish Charcoal Mask, available in peel-off and wash-off options ($5.99-$6.50, JOAHbeauty.com and select CVS stores).
Footsies: Après bath or shower is the best time for a foot mask, when skin is most receptive to deep moisturizing benefits. Foot & Toenail Mask Socks ($2.99, KISSusa.com) are purely therapeutic. Your tired tootsies will love you for lavishing them with shea butter, macadamia oil, and calming lavender. After just 15-20 minutes your feet will look and feel as though you’ve spent an hour in the salon.
Handy helpers: Frequent hand washing is a must now, but as it removes germs, it zaps every drop of natural moisture from your hands, fingers and nails. To the rescue: Hand & Nail Mask Gloves ($2.99, KISSusa.com) with argan oil, collagen, and vitamin E to rehab the driest, roughest skin. After wearing these babies, your hands will feel as soft as if you never had to overwork them all day long. There’s also Manicovery Recovery Care Kit ($7.99, KISSusa.com), a multitasking K-Beauty trio that revives weak, brittle nails & also repairs damage from artificial nails, gel polish and acrylics. It includes adorable nail masks you pop on to rejuvenate nails and cuticles, along with Strengthening Cream & Cuticle Oil that makes nails look healthier after 1 treatment!
