If you're spending Halloween at home, try adding a bit of spice to it - your own self-care masquerade - or shall we say 'Mask-querade.' Drop your ghost mask of years past and swap it for a benefit-filled beauty mask. And why not share the wealth with a few friends too? You and your pals will be skipping on the crowds while also boosting your skin's health and watching a horror flick (or maybe something less scary). Here's how to host your very own self-care masquerade:


BYOM: Bring Your Own Mask

Reach out to your besties and ask them to switch their Halloween mask for their most loved beauty mask for your soirée. With options galore, you can opt to try each other's favorites or simply have each pal enjoy their own favorite mask.


Swap The Uncomfortable Costume For PJs

For a festive fete, opt for Halloween-themed pajamas and fun slippers to set the spooky tone while also sticking to the self-care theme! We're betting it is more comfortable than costumes you have worn in years past!


Select Your Scary Movies

To get into the Halloween spirit, select a few scary movies or shows to watch while you and your guests mask away to healthier, glowing skin. If horror films are not your thing, try a family-friendly film or opt for beautiful conversation and connection as a Halloween-themed playlist sounds in the background.


Prep Your Tricks & Treats

It’s no secret that many of us look forward to Halloween candy each year, but always in moderation. Don't forget to add a few healthy alternatives to the usual sugar-filled Halloween candy repertoire! Find a few easy-to-prepare recipes here.

On the night of, set out your treats, masks, and movies. A few scary good options are below based on your desired #skincaregoals.

BYE GHOUL, HELLO GLOW: Revive and replenish your skin by boosting your glow using ELEMIS Peptide⁴ Thousand Flower Mask. This black-hued treat is rich in minerals, including Nordic Peat, and skin-synchronizing Peptide⁴. Add in a boost of antioxidants and you’ll go from ghoulish to glowing skin. Did we mention it also reduces the appearance of pores?

RID YOURSELF OF THE DEAD (SKIN): If you’ve been dealing with lackluster skin lately, opt for a gentle exfoliating mask such as ELEMIS Papaya Enzyme Peel. The cream exfoliator uses pineapple and papaya enzymes to smooth, moisturize and re-mineralize your skin while getting rid of dead skin cells. Don’t forget to inhale its much-loved tropical scent.

DRINK FROM THE FOUNTAIN OF YOUTH: While the fountain of youth may not reverse aging, preventative skincare definitely helps. Boost your anti-aging efforts with the ELEMIS Pro-Collagen Marine Mask which uplifts the skin and helps to minimize the signs of aging. Quartz paired with Padina Pavonica, adaptogenic Noni, Moringa, and Argan Tree Oil help to lift and hydrate the skin, leaving you with more youthful-looking skin.

Cheers to your very own ‘Mask-querade’ for Halloween and a bit of self-care in between.
