You’ve cleared your social calendar, queued the shows you want to watch, set the air-con to a comfy temperature and you’re all set to start your binge. Whether it’s Love Island, Stranger Things or Sky Castle, why not use this time to also give your skin some TLC? After all, you’re not going to be getting up from there any time soon. We’ve rounded up some beauty products that would make the perfect partners when binge watching your favourite series.
Sephora Collection Coconut Hair Sleeping Mask, $7
This leave-on hair mask is ideal for a binge-watching session because you don’t have to pause the show mid-way to rinse your hair out. In fact, it’s designed to be used on dry hair and leaving it on overnight will yield better results. Plus, the hair cap included ensures the only thing that gets messy is the love triangle on the show you’re watching. We like the coconut version of this mask for its reparative and nourishing properties.
Mount Lai De-Puffing Rose Quartz Facial Roller, $56
Watching your favourite shows would not be complete without a bag of snacks—some of which can make your face puffy. Not only will this roller help reduce any puffiness, it also helps cool and soothe the skin. Plus, rolling it over the face is relaxing AF. We especially like to use it when watching shows that are filled with suspense.
Kora Organics Noni Glow Sleeping Mask, $68
Everybody loves a sheet mask till it’s time to take it off—then you have to stop what you’re doing, wash your hands, and layer the rest of your skincare. You can skip all those steps with this sleeping mask. Slather on a generous layer and let the organic silver ear mushroom, coconut milk, caviar lime and kakadu plum extracts go to work while you catch up on the lives of your favourite characters. And no matter how their stories shape up, your skin will be soft, smooth and glowing.
Clarins Hydra-Essentiel Moisturizing Reviving Eye Mask, $65
If you’re going to binge, do it responsibly by adding this eye mask to the mix. It helps reduce signs of fatigue around the eyes thanks to Irish moss extract that comforts and soothes the delicate skin. Other nourishing and hydrating ingredients ensure dark circles are diminished and skin around the eyes is hydrated and plump so no one knows how late you stayed up to watch the entire series.
Legology Air-Lite Daily Lift For Legs, approx $67
What better time to put your legs up and give them some TLC than when you’re watching your favourite shows. Massage the airy-light hydrating formula from the ankles up, in long strokes and knead the area around the knees and thighs with your thumbs to help reduce fatigue, reduce fluid retention and help prevent cellulite.
