Feeling Bored? Try These Beauty Activities This Weekend

Best At-Home Beauty Treatments

There has never been a time when we feel like we’re done with self-care and maintenance. There’s always some hair on some part of the body waiting to be plucked or some dry area that’s in desperate need of moisture.

Those areas that you usually skip when you’re doing your skincare could use some TLC with at-home beauty treatments when you’ve got some free time.

Whether you’ve been lazy with skincare care, or you’re simply bored, below are the best beauty activities to try at home.

Best At-Home Beauty Treatments

1. Give Yourself an At-Home Facial

We all love a good 10-step skincare routine. Make it official and try the whole thing by giving yourself a facial at home. Start with steam, open up the pores, and apply several masks, serums, and creams. If you’re not sure where to start, here’s our guide to how to give yourself a facial at home.

2. Give Yourself a Pedicure

If you don’t have the necessary tools at your disposal, you may not find this too appealing. However, even soaking your feet in warm water while watching the reruns of your favorite TV show or listening to an inspiring podcast will help you relax.

3. Try Faux Lashes

Faux lashes can give the illusion of fluttery lashes just like that. In my opinion, individual lashes look more natural and they’re not as messy as full lashes may be. Try adding 2-3 individual lashes starting from the outer lashes. You’ll see that your eyes look bigger and your gaze is flirtier.

4. Use a Jade Roller

Try using beauty tools to apply your skincare or give yourself a massage. Jade rolling with a nice-smelling face oil is the easiest way to relax and work your products into the skin. You can also try Gua Sha tools for this.

5. Dry Brush Your Body

Dry brushing your body keeps your skin smooth and flake-free. It’s the perfect way to exfoliate to get rid of flaky skin. Moisturize all over and enjoy smooth and glowing skin.

6. Try Red Lips

It can be intimidating to step out of your comfort zone and try a different makeup look. Even though you keep splurging on fancy makeup products, you end up doing the same thing over and over again. But there’s one makeup look that’s guaranteed to look good on everyone! And that’s wearing a casual everyday red lip. You do a simple base makeup, then define the lashes with mascara. And then you apply red lipstick. You can also try burgundy or berry. The idea is to do a light coverage base but go very bold with the lips.

7. Try Warming or Cooling Masks

There are self-heating face masks that heat up once you start rubbing them in. These are perfect for clearing up pores and congested skin. Cooling masks, on the other hand, make the skin feel tighter and reduce the appearance of pores.

8. Use a Sheet Mask

Sheet masks work fast. They tend to be hydrating and brightening for the skin. If you have a couple of them lying around in the house somewhere, use them up. You can use a Jade roller to apply the sheet mask too.

9. Curl Your Hair

Curling your hair, as easy as it seems, is tricky. I don’t know about you but something’s off with the way the curls come out. Curling in the wrong direction, sectioning your hair the wrong way -these things require practice! Now that you have some time to practice, try perfecting those beachy waves and curl your hair with a styling tool.

10. Try a Body Mask

Skincare isn’t just about your face anymore. Body care is also a part of it. And just like face masks, there are body masks you can use. You can try a foot mask, a hand mask, or even a chest mask to achieve moisturized, glowing skin all over.

11. Try a Hair Mask

Haircare takes time. And it can be messier than skincare. But hair masks do offer some quick solutions like softening your hair or making it look shinier. Try a moisturizing hair mask to nourish and soften those strands.

12. Try a Body Scrub

Scrubs can be too irritating for the face. But they’re great for the body. And a full-body scrub makes an incredibly satisfying at-home beauty treatment when you have time. Try a coffee scrub, a sugar scrub, or body peels to gently exfoliate your body.

13. Do a Full Glam

When all else fails, a full-blown glam with smokey eyes, full-coverage makeup, and bold lips is the quickest way to get a mood boost. Play with your makeup. Use that contour palette and master the art of sculpting.

14. Try Dermaplaning

Dermaplaning is a great way to get rid of unwanted hair on the face and achieve super soft and smooth skin. Plus, it gives you a more put-together look. It also helps your foundation coverage and increases the absorption of your skincare products. Try this beauty treatment if you’re dealing with dullness.

15. Tint Your Eyebrows

Tinted eyebrows give the illusion of fluffy eyebrows. And defined brows can seriously up your makeup game. Use an at-home kit to tint your brows to make them look fuller and thicker. You can also experiment by filling in your brows with an eyebrow pen. If that’s not going to work either, then use an angled brush and dip it into an eyeshadow to fill them in.

16. Exfoliate

Chemical exfoliation decongests the skin, brightens the complexion, and smooths the skin texture. You can try skincare products with alpha and beta hydroxy acids such as a glycolic acid toner or a salicylic acid serum. You can try exfoliating face masks, or an exfoliating toner or use peel pads for wrinkles to improve skin texture and increase your skin’s radiance.

17. Try a Self-Tanner

Use a mess-free spray tan to warm up your skin tone. A nice tan, for some reason, increases self-confidence. It also helps your outfit, your manicure, and your smile. Plus, think of all the different looks you can try with your bronzer now that you have a tan.

18. Try Anti-Aging Beauty Tools

You can try anti-aging skincare devices at home such as LED masks or massage tools. They’re like mess-free skincare. You turn on the device and let it do its work.

19. Fill in Wrinkles with a Wrinkle Patch

Use wrinkle patches to plump up wrinkles instantly. They’re fun to do and they work fast. Use an under-eye patch to plump up fine lines around the eyes. You can also try silicone patches for smile lines, which are more difficult to deal with. But wrinkle patches work great for those lines.

20. Try Multi-Masking

Multi-masking is the most fun way of masking! And it’s an excellent at-home beauty treatment to try especially when you have samples. You apply different face masks on different areas of the face. For example, you put on gel patches on the eye area, apply a peel-off mask on the nose, a clay mask on the cheeks, and a cream mask on the rest of the face. This way, you get to address several skin issues at the same time.

21. Organize Your Beauty Cabinet

This is my favorite beauty activity. Get all your skincare and makeup products together. Organize your beauty products by using a cute organizer or repurpose your old Sephora boxes. Go through your stash and see if there’s something in there you haven’t been using. Make sure you use them up before they expire. Is there anything you don’t like to use anymore? Consider repurposing your skincare products or gifting them. Open up some space in your beauty cabinet. If there’s a moisturizer you don’t like to use anymore, put it in the bathroom and use it up as a body lotion later on.

22. Wash Your Makeup Brushes

Our makeup brushes and beauty sponges require regular maintenance. This makes them work better when you’re applying makeup and also keeps things clean. Whether it’s your foundation brush or bronzer brush, put all your makeup application tools together and clean your makeup brushes.
