Let’s face it: When it comes to skincare, our faces tend to get a lot more attention than the rest of our bodies. But when it comes to pampering, calming and healing, can there ever be too much of a good thing?
I recently visited Morocco where whole-body rituals are as routine as brushing teeth or hair. Bathing in African Black Soap to purge the body of toxins is part of the traditional hammam, a weekly treatment commonly performed in many Eastern-European countries. My travels taught me that simply taking an extra few minutes per day to focus on full body treatments can do wonders to diminish stress and encourage restoration.
While most of us have a favorite face mask in our bag of tricks, body masks remain largely uncharted territory. Whether you’re looking to de-stress, promote youthfulness, or target specific issues like acne and dryness, these body masks are your golden ticket to proper pampering.
