People have embraced self-care after months of social isolation and working from home: meditating, taking walks, and investing in a skincare routine can all help enhance your mood.
In fact, a recent study found that more than half of those polled intended to increase their self-care in 2021. Selena Gomez, who has been honest about her mental health struggle throughout the years, has long advocated for doing so.
She recently offered some self-care ideas with Vogue’s Beauty Secrets series, stating that being “in a healthy headspace” is a crucial part of her daily routine.
The Only Murders in the Building actor filmed her overnight beauty routine, which included lighting candles, pouring essential oil onto her wrists, and applying cucumber eye masks to her cheeks to reduce puffiness.
The single-use masks are formulated with all-natural components including watermelon and cucumber extract. They are also free of potentially dangerous substances such as oxybenzone, parabens, phthalates, sulfates, formaldehyde, and others.
The best part is that the eye patches are vegan and come in recyclable packaging, which helps to reduce the product’s single-use materials.
Selena says she likes to start with a clean canvas before applying makeup, so she uses Tatcha’s Dewy Serum for five minutes while the eye pads set. Hyaluronic acid and squalane are used in the serum to hydrate and plump the skin.
After both products have dried, the “999” singer has a smooth base that is ideal for developing her characteristic cat eye and dewy shine.
Naturally, Gomez isn’t the only fan of Sephora’s cucumber eye masks. Over 100 reviewers gave these masks a perfect rating, saying that they “help with dark circles” and make their skin feel softer. “I love prepping my skin with this before makeup to help keep my creasing under the eyes at bay,” one shopper wrote.
“I have very dry skin/dermatitis and have to be really careful of what products I use,” another added. “After trying this mask, my eye area felt refreshed and it didn’t upset my skin. I’ve actually bought many of these because they work for my picky skin. And, of course, you can’t beat the low price!”
With Selena’s approval and loads of positive feedback, these $4 relaxing eye masks are likely to be a welcome addition to your self-care routine. Today is the day to pick up a set at Sephora.
