We sheet mask. We glitter mask. We eye mask. But why should our face get all the love? There’s a new mask trend on the scene that goes beyond your mug: body masking. It’s just what it sounds like. Want to get on board? Here are seven spa-grade home treatments to upgrade your next self-care Sunday.
Yep, Body Masking Is a Thing and Here's Why You Should Do It
The Body Shop Himalayan Charcoal Body Clay
We’re big fans of charcoal face masks for their pore-refining capabilities. This one basically does the same thing for the rest of your body, drawing out impurities and deep cleaning skin for a brighter, softer complexion from the shoulders down.

Karuna Hydrating+ Hand Mask
If you’ve ever tried the old Vaseline and glove trick, you know things can get pretty greasy feeling. This hand sheet mask is the cure. Just slip on like a pair of gloves, secure with the included tape and then wait ten to 20 glorious minutes for the serum to work its magic—all with a legitimate excuse not to answer texts.
Lavanila The Healthy Underarm Detox
Between deodorant buildup and sweat, your underarms could likely use a little detoxing. This mask’s activated charcoal formula helps absorb and draw out impurities for fewer bumps and less annoying irritation.

Patchology Poshpeel Pedi Cure Foot Masque Socks
We love a good pedicure, but sometimes they just don’t buff our feet enough. Well, this foot mask gets the job done. Just slip on the plastic booties, pour in the activated essence, and let feet soak it up for an hour (while you catch up on Westworld, obviously). Wash it off and wait for full exfoliation over the next few days.
