There are so many things going on at any given time, and it can seem impossible to take even 10 minutes away from your work to indulge in some self-care. Whether you're meal prepping, answering emails, meditating, or just getting in your daily self-care, you can always find a few minutes to mask. Below, check out some of our favorite activities that can double up as self-care time.
Jet Lag Mask + Meal Prep
The beauty of our Jet Lag Mask is that it can be used at any time of day, depending on how thick of a layer you choose, which makes it perfect to use when you're meal prepping. If you're making something easy like a smoothie or chia pudding bowl, apply a thin layer all over your face and allow the product to sink in like a moisturizer.
For the days when you need to cut up a ton of veggies for the week, layer it on thickly so that it sits on top of your skin, sealing in moisture as you chop away. Leave it on until you're done your meal prep and then rinse it off to reveal dewy, plump skin. Either way you put it on, Chestnut Extract will gently encourage your skin's natural exfoliation process, while Niacinamide and Vitamin C lock in hydration for a glowy, fresh complexion.
Overtime Mask + Meditate
When you and your skin have been working, well, overtime, you need something that will help you relax and take a load off. Our Overtime Mask is the perfect product to pair with a quick 10-minute meditation to take you away from the stress of your day.
Apply a generous layer of this to clean skin, massage into skin for 60 seconds, and allow its ingredients to work its magic for the next 10 minutes while your mind takes a mini vacay through a guided meditation with apps like Calm or Headspace. Vitamin E and Oat Kernel Protein work to protect and soothe your skin, and after your meditation is over, pumpkin and apricot seed powder gently exfoliate and balance your skin as you rinse off the mask.
R+R Mask + Shower
Though showering can seem like a mundane daily task, it's likely one of the few times of the day that you have all to yourself. Why not take that time to indulge in a little (literal) R+R? One of Lauren's favorite tricks for using our R+R Mask is to use it in a hot shower. The steam opens up your pores so that your skin is ready to accept all of the nutrients from the mask.
Apply it to your face and leave it on while you condition your hair or shave your legs, then take about 60 seconds to massage it into your face when you rinse it off. The Rose Flower Powder in it will gently buff away dead skin cells, while a mix of Argan, Safflower, Sesame, Avocado, and Grape Seed Oils work their way into your skin to nourish and hydrate from the inside out.
Lip Butter Balm + Work From Anywhere
Your lips always need a little bit of love, and luckily, our Lip Butter Balm is here to help. LBB works doubletime as both a mask and a balm, so you can easily apply it throughout the day as your lips get dry or chapped; you can even apply it over your matte lipsticks to add shine and moisture to your pout. It's the perfect mask for you to reapply at any point throughout the day for a tiny moment of self-care. Vegan Waxes and Shea and Murumuru butters are ultra-hydrating to soothe and heal dry, chapped lips, and the hint of vanilla adds a touch of sweetness to your application.
Though your busy schedule and hectic life make it seem like you can't possibly take time for yourself, let this serve as a little reminder that you deserve a little self-care — even if it means that you're masking and multitasking.
