There's nothing quite as relaxing as kicking your feet up, stretching out on the couch, queuing up a new episode of Stranger Things, and draping your face in a hydrating sheet mask. While you sit and watch Millie Bobby Brown kick ass, you can pamper yourself in an incredibly low-effort, low-cost kind of way. But why give your face all the attention? Over the past few years, masking has stretched way beyond the face and into the neck, body—even your fingertips (yes, really). So why not wrap yourself up like a mummy and give every inch of your body some love?
Below, we've outlined some of the best masks (sheet, clay, and beyond) to help care for those forgotten areas of your body. Consider your weekend plans made.
Perhaps you watched the latest episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians where Kendall and Kourtney slathered themselves from head to toe in a detoxing mask. While the sisters were sure to have spiked interest in the treatment in that moment, women and men alike have been doing full-body clay treatments for ages, so what better time to hop on board than right now? This Body Shop mask absorbs excess water and oil in the skin to help tone your body, making it the perfect pre-event ritual.
Individual finger-size sheet masks lined with rose and lavender help hydrate dry cuticles and brittle nails for a pseudo-mani while you catch up on your DVR. Plus, how cute is the packaging?
The first of their kind, Nannette de Gaspé's dry sheet masks are infused with sodium hyaluronate to improve firmness and marine collagen to stimulate natural collagen production. These particular masks from the line are actually proven to boost your bum and bust to help them look plumper. (We told you there was a mask for everything.)
As the name infers, Frownies were originally designed to help reduce frown lines and other natural facial creasing, but the brand's popular neck mask is a favorite of senior editor Hallie Gould, who says reusing the mask for several days helped lessen the visible lines on her neck. Its clear shell also allows you to be discreet (ahem—desk-side neck mask, anyone?).
Come fall, our feet have taken a serious beating from summer's sandal-clad days. What better way to treat your feet than with these relaxing booties (especially because of the added lavender scent) that deliver a serious dose of hydration to cracked heels and callused tootsies. You can thank us later.
You've definitely heard of hair masks, but this cap acts like a sheet mask that locks in a deep-conditioning blend and opens the hair cuticle to drive nourishing agents in even further. It's even got biotin (commonly found in hair vitamins) to strengthen your hair and prevent breakage. Assistant editor Maya Allen is a big fan!
You've probably seen celebrities using pink jelly masks in the shape of lips on social media, but we'd argue this ultra-moisturizing sleep mask provides much longer-lasting results. Similar to a lip balm, this rich blend of raspberry, strawberry, cranberry, and blueberry extracts delivers antioxidants to the lips to protect, moisturize, and reverse signs of aging.
Have you ever tried these masks? Which was your favorite?
