Let’s be real. We’re always on the run. In our busy lives, we never seem to stop, especially not to take a moment to indulge in intricate beauty rituals. But we always have those moments when we need a little beauty pick-me-up. Maybe you’ve been traveling and your face is dry and congested from the airplane, or perhaps you shaved a little too quickly, leaving your legs sensitive and a bit chapped. Whatever beauty woe you may be facing, here’s our favorite 60-second skin remedies to help you look and feel your best in a minute.
Hands looking a little worse for wear this winter? Break out your SkinOwl Body oil. This powerful moisturizer works wonders all over your body from your heels to your hands. Take a small amount of your body oil and give yourself a hand massage, focusing on your cuticles, nails, and palms. Your now smooth and hydrated hands will thank you.
Face & Body Sugar Scrub
Need to exfoliate in a pinch? Grab a spoonful of brown sugar and pump of your Body oil for a deeply moisturizing, body scrub. Gently rub into the skin in circular motions, focusing on the calves, hands, feet, and elbows. Simply rinse off with warm water. No soap needed!
Looking for a face scrub. Take a 1/2 spoonful of brown sugar and mix it with 1/2 spoonful of ground oatmeal and a pipette-full of your Beauty Drops. Rub your hands together and gently massage mixture into your face. Be careful not to scrub too hard, let the brown sugar do the work, removing dead skin and debris. The oatmeal will calm sensitivities and promote an even complexion, while your Beauty Drops moisturize and treat your skin for a youthful glow. Looking for more moisture? Mask it! Leave your mixture on for 10 minutes or so and follow up with your SkinOwl Beauty Whip.
Had a little too much fun in the sun? Or perhaps, feeling a little windburned after a day on the slopes? We’ve got a 60-second skin remedy for you! In a blender, blend 3 spoonfuls of aloe vera gel, 1/2 a small peeled cucumber, and 2 pumps of Neck+ together. Apply to your face and body as a mask. Cucumber will cool inflamed, sunburned or chapped skin while aloe deeply hydrates, calms irritation, and promotes healing. The witch hazel in the Neck+ will help reduce itchiness and pain, while Irish moss and jojoba oil soothes and softens the skin. This mask is your best friend when you’re looking for sunburn relief.
Brightening Enzyme Face Mask
Got date night and looking for a little extra glow? Try this brightening enzymatic face mask. In a small bowl or with a mortar and pestle, crush a couple of blueberries or a chunk or two of pineapple. Add a pump of Neck+ and mix together. Apply to your face and relax for 10 minutes, letting the enzymes dissolve dead cells, revealing plump, radiant skin beneath. Finish up this beauty remedy with a pump of Beauty Whip or your favorite Beauty Drops.
We hope that these 60-second skin remedies have inspired you to take a minute out of your day for a mini at-home spa experience. Taking the time to pamper yourself with little selfcare rituals helps calm the body and mind, releasing stress and helping you unplug and disconnect.
