This year, Halloween falls on an intense blue full moon. A blue moon is a second full moon in a month, a rare event that only occurs once every two or three years. Of course in 2020, when normalcy has taken leave, rare occurrences are par for the course.

With this magnificent moon, and Halloween parties and trick-or-treating put on ice until next year, there’s no better way to celebrate during 2020 than by luxuriating in (socially-distanced) self-care. 

Rituals like using facial masks, taking hot baths, and applying luxe skincare are perfect activities for full moons (especially blue ones) and Halloween nights.
