Body masks for glowing skin and hair: Pamper every part of your body with a DIY spa

Mask on

Text: Emily Heng

There are so many brilliant things to get up to this weekend. On our schedule so far: stuffing our faces with the best of Mexican roast cuts; pounding pavements with the hottest new kicks; and lounging the night away with Netflixwine (Cersei Lannister style) and a mask on while at it. And not just for your visage, mind. Go all out and indulge in masks for your entire body that will leave skin feeling smooth, supple, and oh-so-ready when the new week (inevitably) rolls around. Below, the best body masks to give you the top-to-toe pampering you deserve, from scalp to booty. Get it, girls.

Hair mask: Briogeo Don't Despair, Repair! Hair Cap System

Constant heat styling and humidity can leave your tresses dry, straw-like, and increasingly impossible to tame. Rectify this by getting to the root (pun intended) of the problem with a hair and scalp mask. This one by Briogeo allows for optimal penetration of repairing nutrients with the provided shower cap, which keeps moisture trapped (and absorbed) into the hair cuticle. To use, simply slather hair and scalp in the mask, then pull the shower cap over. Leave on for 15 minutes, and wash off after. Good hair is that easy, folks.



Eye mask: Kao MegRhythm Steam Eye Mask

Peering at your laptop screen all day — whether for work or leisure — makes a wicked case of dry, strained peepers. Give them some love with a self-warming steam eye mask that helps relieve and relax tired eyes. We recommend getting some shut eye while you're at it, considering how it comes in both chamomile and lavender scents to lull restless sleepers.


Boob mask: Nannette De Gaspé Uplift Revealed Bust Mask

Hey, we're sure being suffocated in bras and layers of fabric ain't exactly a pleasant experience. Make it up to the girls with a mask that claims to boost the volume, suppleness and bounce of your bust, with users claiming to see lifted and more elastic skin along the area with sustained use.



Butt mask: Bawdy Shake It Firming + Illuminating Butt Sheet Mask

It seems your cheeks aren't the only in need of sculpting. If you need a little help to contour your behind, opt for a lifting and firming mask. This one by Bawdy comes packed with plant-based collagen to plump as well as oat extract to firm. What do you know: a J.Lo-like derrière might not to be too distant of a dream.


Foot mask: Baby Foot Exfoliant Foot Peel

For those who never understood the appeal of fish nibbling at your feet, an exfoliant foot peel works just as well — if not better. Formulated with 16 types of natural extracts, the inclusion of fruit acid removes all unwanted dead skin while hyaluronic acid moisturises. Slip them plastic baggies onto feet and watch as the magic happens; you'll be shedding like a snake (gross but effective) in no time.
