Amid social distancing—and a heightened need for self-care—now is a good time to consider trying out new beauty treatments. Figure out what you like, or don’t, while in the privacy of your own home. After you’ve mastered the DIY manicure and whipped up a kitchen-sourced lip scrub, here are six fresh beauty ideas to try at home before Monday.
Slip on a Hand Mask
With all the washing and sanitizing, our hands could use a little TLC. Give cuticles the hydrating boost they crave with these hand masks: Patchology’s self-warming gloves are made with soothing Vitamin E and fruit extracts while Korean powerhouse Innisfree’s solution delivers natural herb extracts for softer hands and better looking nail beds—a truly hands off approach to weekend chill time.
Reveal Glowing Skin With a Peel
If the word “peel” immediately conjures up images of a raw, red-faced Samantha Jones from Sex and the City, it’s time to give the 10-minute treatment a second look. A proper peel—known for its exfoliating and glow-inducing properties—can help reduce fine lines, improve the appearance of acne scars, and even minimize pores. On our list? There’s Dermalogica’s pumpkin enzyme and lactic acid formula that gets to work in just three minutes, and Glo’s new multi-step retinol peel that promises brighter and smoother skin in just one use.
Try a Spray Tan
Especially for spray tan novices, now is the perfect time to experiment with faux sun-kissed skin. St. Tropez’s new body mist delivers a golden tan and a boost of hydrating skincare ingredients—think Vitamin C, hyaluronic acid, and hydrating green mandarin water. If you’re looking for a mousse formula, pick up Australian Glow’s Kakadu plum-infused tan that delivers a completely streak-free, light glow in four hours. Make a mistake? The brand also makes a tan remover mousse that instantly reverses any misplaced color.
DIY a Hair Mask
While your tan settles in, consider heading to the kitchen and whipping up a three-ingredient hydrating hair mask. “This has been taught to us by our mums and our grand-mums,” explains Priyanka Chopra Jonas of her custom shine-boosting treatment. Her recipe combines cold full-fat yogurt, a whole egg, and some anti-inflammatory honey. Apply from root to tip and leave on for 30 minutes to reveal rejuvenated lengths.
Whiten Your Teeth
In between Zoom calls, give teeth-brightening a go. There’s Colgate’s professional grade whitening option that helps remove stains in 10 days with an LED device or, for a 360-degree approach, look to celebrity dentist Dr. Michael Apa’s White Kit. The pro, who splits his time between New York, Los Angeles, and Dubai, has designed a three-step routine for brighter teeth that’s housed in a sleek lucite tray designed by downtown interiors whiz, Jonathan Adler.
Catch Some Rays
Spending just 20 minutes a week with an LED mask can tackle a variety of skin concerns including spots, fine lines and even acne. While red light increases collagen production in the skin, blue light decreases bacteria and breakouts and yellow tackles inflammation. Consider slipping one on while pressing play on a guided meditation for a clear mind and complexion this weekend.
