It’s finally that time of the year when we go all out with our friends. Brunches, shopping, spa, house parties, Friendship Day was all about having the best time with the BFFs. However, the new normal has restricted those Friendship Day shenanigans to mere virtual meet-ups. But that doesn’t mean your e-party cannot be lit. Plan a virtual spa day with your girls and unwind over some gossip and binge bites.
You just have to send your group call invites and we’ll line up a complete spa day routine that your girl gang is surely gonna heart.
Scrub: Pull back your hair and start with a gentle scrub that suits each of your skin types. Clean the dead skins, wipe out those oil, and grime to reveal your actual skin texture. WFH and continuous blue light exposures tend to make the skin dull and pigmented even without sun exposure. Some scrubs typically address this issue, bet you want to give it a try.
Mask: Now that your skin is squeaky clean, it’s time to heal with a mask that addresses all you girls’ skin concerns. Normal skin girls can go for a retinol-based sheet mask that repairs and rejuvenates. Dry skin types should try one that hydrates and restores glow. For oily skin, we suggest you go for a clay mask that detoxifies and boosts skin defence. Sensitive skin types can try a sheet mask with Vitamin C that soothes and tightens open pores.
Now, just grab a drink, apply your masks and revisit those spa days from your last girls’ trip.
Serum: Follow up your masks with the nourishment of a serum. There’s an array of serums available nowadays for every skin type and concern. From skin brightening to plumping or age-defying ones, you and your girls can pick any, depending on your needs. You can also try some under eye creams to soothe those dark circles and puffiness that our screen times have blessed us with.
Hydration: Usually the last step of a facial is a massage to lock your skin moisture and make it look supple. Hydration necessity can be different for different skin types but it is of absolute importance to initiate skin cell regeneration and maintain elasticity. Needless to say, dry and normal skin types can go for skin restoring moisturisers that will make the skin plump and smooth. While oily and sensitive skin girls can choose from a wide range of hydration boosting gels that don’t clog pores and balances pH levels.
We have tried to keep your Friendship Day spa routine as simple yet nourishing as possible so that your gang doesn’t get too meddled up in the process and you get most of the time to celebrate each other’s company.
