What to do when you’re staying home and craving a little beauty TLC? Bring the spa to you. While we know nothing can quite compare to visiting your favorite med spa, there are a few things you can do to keep yourself looking fresh and feeling pampered without stepping out your front door.
Grab your favorite candles, set your phone to “do not disturb,” and get ready to luxuriate with these 3 tips for creating the perfect “stayspa” experience.
1. Embrace the Eye Mask
We recommend: SkinMedica® Instant Bright Eye Masks and Eye Crème
Nothing brings that spa experience to life more than an eye mask. Swap out those classic cucumber slices for hydrogel masks that smooth, hydrate, and depuff all at the same time. As part of a daily routine, eye masks are the perfect morning pick-me-up while you’re sipping coffee or driving to work. But while you’re pampering at home in the meantime, they’re just what you need to make your spa dream a reality. You might even get your family in on the fun. (Take it from us: no one can resist a great eye mask.)
On those days when working from home has you particularly stressed, we highly recommend including eye masks as part of your nighttime wind-down routine. Follow your mask with a rich eye cream for hydration that lasts.
LJC staff says: “I love using my eye masks in the morning to smooth the undereye area and plump any crepiness or fine lines… They always leave me with hydrated, happy eyes.”
2. Exfoliate the Day Away
We recommend: skinbetter AlphaRet® Exfoliating Peel Pads
While you’re between chemical peel appointments, these exfoliating pads can keep dryness, dullness, and dead skin buildup at bay. With a combination of glycolic, lactic, and salicylic acid, they exfoliate the skin and leave it smooth and bright. They improve both skin texture and discoloration, so you don’t have to miss out on that healthy, glowy, “just left the med spa” feeling while you’re home.
We recommend using these 3 times a week after cleansing at night and then following with the rest of your usual skincare protocol.
3. Give Your Lashes Some Love
We recommend: LATISSE®
If you’re missing your regular lash appointments as much as we are, don’t worry; you can keep your lashes long and healthy with some at-home care. LATISSE is an FDA-approved prescription lash growth serum that lengthens, thickens, and darkens lashes. It’s an easy at-home fix for lashes that may be thinning and will help you emerge from your stay-at-home period looking even better than before.
