Condé Nast Traveller · The Best At-Home Beauty Kits and Treatments, According to Experts

“For me, an at-home spa experience doesn’t have to be complicated,” says Chanel’s skincare expert, Melanie Grant. “Sometimes the simple act of setting aside a little time for yourself is enough to de-stress and decompress. Masking is the best way to infuse the complexion with vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, and actives, with minimal effort. Focus on what your skin needs at the time, or mix and match to target multiple concerns simultaneously. Recently, I’ve been applying a mask and letting it infuse while I catch up on emails or soak in the tub. Simply apply with your fingertips and allow it to activate for 15 to 20 minutes before removing with tepid water. I’ve been using the Chanel Hydra Beauty Camellia Repair mask because my skin has been a little dry and devitalized. I love this mask as you can apply a thick layer and remove after 20 minutes or you can use it as a sleeping mask by applying a finer layer and simply massage it in before going to bed.”

Grant says she always keeps Biologique Cryo-Sticks in the fridge. “They’re incredible for de-puffing, soothing, reducing inflammation and reactivity, and sculpting. You can also run them over a sheet mask to boost absorption and combine masking and massaging in one step.”
