While self-care can take many different forms — from attending a hot yoga class to spending an hour reading at a coffee shop — it’s easiest to practice from your very own home. And, if you want to turn your me-time into something that feels like a spa session, all you need is a handful of skin care products for a self-care routine that delivers a soothing mind-body reset.
Sure, you could think of your bathroom as one of the least-visited areas of your apartment or as a boring, utilitarian space. But it doesn’t have to be — with a sprinkle of beauty essentials (and perhaps some cute decor), you can transform the washroom into a destination for much-needed TLC. Enter: skin care products that were practically designed for a self-care sesh.
While any serum or moisturizer technically counts as something that can be used for some me-time, turning to items like face masks, scrubs, lotions, and beauty tools can really upgrade a simple skin care routine. To help you carve out a spa-level top shelf, Bustle has rounded up six must-have skin care-meets-self-care MVPs.
