Skin irritation from mask-wearing is now so prevalent it has its own new term, maskne.  Frequent hand-washing and steriliser is not kind to skin either, and, while our walks on the wild side and sea swimming certainly keeps the blood pumping, winter weather can challenge the complexion too.

The Buff Day Spa has come to the rescue with its Virtual Spa Parties, where friends and family can get into their favourite PJs and enjoy a pampering session, expert skincare advice, and even a good gossip in the comfort of their own home.

The fun 60-minute interactive online parties are hosted by an experienced skin therapist from The Buff Day Spa, who teaches participants how to give themselves a spa style facial and how to treat individual skincare issues.

Each party guest gets a customised Image Skincare kit delivered to their home ahead of the party, and the cost is €40.00 per person.

Top tips on healthy skin and improving overall well-being are all part of the service with the trained therapists drawing on their expertise in practical skincare, aromatherapy, product selection and problem skin.

We may have to social distance, but that shouldn’t mean losing out on a good skincare regime, or missing quality time with friends, Eileen Fleming, owner of the award-winning day spa on South King Street in Dublin says.

“Whether you call it a virtual spa party or an online girls’ night-in, the catch-up with friends, while getting some reliable beauty advice and motivation, is a great investment in your overall wellbeing these days”, Eileen Fleming says.

The Buff Day Spa organises everything the participants need to know in advance, as well as supplying the beauty goodie bags, making Virtual Spa Parties a popular choice for birthdays and hen night celebrations and baby showers, in particular.

For DIY pampering at home, The Buff Day Spa has a range of its most popular beauty products now available in an online store at, as well as skincare advice blogs.
