If I didn’t have the choice to treat myself at home, dealing with all of the stress and anxiety of the pandemic it would have been far more difficult. When things were too much to handle and there was no sign of relief in sight, I would find a quiet corner in my house, put my feet up, and focus solely on relaxing. And what’s my most powerful beauty weapon for casting these home-spa spells? Face masks with heavenly scents, moisture-dripping properties, and ultra-nourishing properties!
You can agree to disagree, but in my opinion, there’s no beauty hack that’s as quick and painless as using a face mask to indulge in some self-care. All you have to do now is unpack and unwrap the nutrient-rich mask, then spread it evenly on your face. Grab a book to read or apply two cucumber slices to your eyes as your skin is lavishly pampered without you having to leave the house. By investing in a face mask, you’re essentially bringing a spa and a salon into your own house.
When I truly want to wash my skin effectively, I use a face pack. I adore the feeling of being squeaky clean after using a mask. In an ideal world, I’d make something in the kitchen, but I’ll be honest: if there was a country for lazy people, I’d be the queen.
Many of the face packs I use today are the same ones I used in college, and they still give me great results — each one giving me a long-lasting glow. All of these masks are suitable for all skin types and gently cleanse the skin, leaving a faint glow.
