There's never a better time to divulge in a little R&R than the holiday break. Whether you're home from school or simply taking off a few of those last vacation days you've stocked up at work, there's nothing quite like waking up sans alarm clock, leisurely strolling to the couch, and spending no less than 30 minutes deciding what to watch first on Netflix. If this sounds like your ideal schedule for the break, why not incorporate a little skincare indulgence into the mix. Masks can sometimes be too much of a hassle during a busy work night, but a wide open afternoon with nothing but Netflix on the brain? Now that's prime time to try a new treatment. Check out four masks to give a go this break!
This is actually bliss's most popular add on treatment at their spas, so naturally it's a fantastic option for a little mini spa day at home. This vitamin C-rich mask channels powerful antioxidants to brighten tired skin. The modeling mask molds to every contour to douse skin with ingredients and get the most out of your 20 minutes of masking. Plus, the bubbling and rubber finish will make any Snapstory a must watch.
Sheet masks might be the easiest masks to done, but they're not always the fastest. During your break, take some time to actually leave your mask on for the full 20 to 40 minutes—or an episode of Parks and Rec, if you will. This one from Dr. Jart+ boasts serious lifting skills thanks to coenzyme Q10 and beta-glucan, which help promote collagen and elasticity.
OK, so these might not technically be masks, but hear us out. Sometimes to see real results, you gotta bring in the big guns in terms of ingredients. With 10 percent glycolic acid and vitamin C in each of Murad's new wipes, this peel is certainly a powerhouse in terms of skincare. Because peels can be a little rough on your skin (and glycolic acid takes some time getting used to), there's no better time to treat yourself to a peel than a lazy day free from meetings or appointments.
