at-home beauty rituals

In a time when looking after ourselves (and each other) is paramount, we’ve put together a self-care roster of at-home beauty rituals to try. Be kind to yourself and recharge with any (or all) of the following…

SKIN GYM JADE ROLLER

Step away from your screen and indulge in some light facial massage instead. This naturally cooling, instantly gratifying jade roller will soothe puffiness, aid lymphatic drainage (helping to reduce fine lines) and sculpt your skin. Beauty Editor Grace Gargini’s top tip: store in the fridge to enhance the calming effects.

THE LIGHT SALON BOOST LED MASK

Treat yourself to The Light Salon’s LED at-home facial. The near-infrared light boosts your circulation, removes toxins, delivers oxygen and nourishes the skin, while the red light gets to work stimulating collagen. Lasting 10 short-but-sweet minutes, twin it with some mindfulness exercises to maximise your downtime.

THERAPIE ROQUES-O'NEIL BATH SALTS

If sinking into a bath is your idea of the ultimate relaxation, add Therapie Roques-O'Neil bath salts for serious heaven. A cup or two in your evening soak will help balance energy levels and alleviate stress (thanks, Himalayan Detox Salts).


Transform your bath into serious downtime. How? Add drops of essential oils (lavender or ylang-ylang – thank us later), rediscover old music favourites (guilty pleasures are encouraged) or put on a feel-good podcast (for belly laughs: 'Dear Joan and Jericha'). If you were looking for a better excuse to dip into your wine reserves, it doesn't exist. Pour yourself a glass and let the zen commence.

PHILIP KINGSLEY ELASTICIZER EXTREME

Use this time to indulge in treatments you’d ordinarily be too busy for – like this cult hair mask by Philip Kingsley. The pre-shampoo treatment works miracles on all hair types, and for 20 minutes it goes to work repairing damaged tresses (especially over-processed or coloured hair) to nourish and restore bounce. Just add your favourite Spotify playlist.

KIEHL'S CRÈME DE CORPS BODY MOISTURISER

Applying a body moisturiser isn’t just about tackling dryness; it’s a comforting ritual in itself. Enriched with jojoba, sesame and olive fruit oils, this Kiehl’s one is deeply nourishing and perfect for upping your post-shower morning (or evening) routine.
