‘Tis the season to treat yourself! Our beauty director, Angelique Serrano, teamed up with Birchbox editor, Meredith Stebbins, to bring you the ultimate at-home spa treatment. First, to set the tone for me-time, use candles and dim lighting. When it comes to exfoliating, Stebbins recommends Benta Berry, a favorite facial cleanser of InStyle and Birchbox editors. “Not only are you going to get a smooth surface,” Stebbins says of the exfoliator. “But it’s going to help the products you put on after penetrate better.” Watch the video above to get the full breakdown, and let us know how you’re planning to unwind this holiday.
