Our favorite ways to pass the time and indulge in this essential skincare ritual.
– Keys Soulcare
Ever notice how 15 minutes flies by during the course of our day, but can feel like an idle eternity when we’re told to let a great beauty ritual sit and do its thing? (Just us? Didn’t think so!)
We were curious about what everybody else was doing mid-mask — so we put a question out to the team. From embracing the art of doing nothing to tackling our soulcare to-do lists, here’s how mask multi-tasking is adding an extra layer of indulgence and attention to our rituals.
“I’ll reach for the nearest non-digital media: newspaper, a book, or a magazine. Nothing says chill time like the absence of a clock and the temptation to check in on what anybody else is doing during my ‘me’ time.” — Tiffany, content director
“A face mask can quickly become a spa moment, so I usually end up soaking my feet and grabbing a book.” — Mikel, user experience manager
“I like to listen to R&B and journal my thoughts.” — Britney, community relations manager
“I love reading a good book while I mask, it makes the time fly by — making me mask and read more!” — Shana, brand manager
“For my face mask moments, I like to keep it on for 15-20 minutes so it really sinks into my skin. While I’m waiting for the mask to dry, I love to play Nintendo Switch, watch HBO Max, and play with my pup.” — Justin, social strategist
“At-home manicures!” — Ayanna, social media manager
“After dating my now-fiancé for six and a half years, I’ve finally sold him on the game-changing magic of face masks. So, we usually do them together and let the time pass by chatting or watching our of-the-moment shows. Whenever I see his mask dry up, I know to take mine off, too!”— Kelsey, editor
