Allow these historically frigid temperatures outside to give you an excuse to dedicate a few extra minutes—or a whole day—to pampering. Read on the the ultimate beauty add-ons for literally head to toes: your face, hair, body, and even hands.
An all-day at-home wellness retreat is the ultimate unwind.
Sinking into the bath is key when time is on your side. Throw in some powerful aromatic salts and bath oil while the water is still running. Once you’ve had a good soak, use a scrub mitt to deeply exfoliate and slough away dead skin. Hop out and cover yourself in your favorite body oil while your skin is still damp and absorbent. Then wrap up under a plush towel or robe as your body sweats from the heat and bath salts (it’s super-detoxifying). We won’t judge if you take a midday nap.

Get some quality face time with a trio of masks that purify, exfoliate, and hydrate. Together they work wonders. Start with a thick layer of clay to pull any gunk to the skin’s surface. When the mask is nearly dry, wash it off and use a gentle scrub to rid skin of dry bits. Finish up with a deeply hydrating mask.

Don’t let your face have all the fun and your hands do all the work. Apply a sheet mask for hands—basically magical moisture gloves. Next, massage in a generous amount of cuticle oil—your number one defense for keeping nails happy and cuticles snag-free— especially one with a moisturizing base such as sweet almond or argan oil.
