Face masks have become essential, but they don’t have to be boring! Jazz up a plain white face mask with tie dye – a trend that’ll never go away. It allows you to unleash your creativity with bold colors or pastel feels.

Scrunchies, on the other hand, are a trend that’s come back as wristwear. Create a cute matching set for your bestie, with a tie dye scrunchie and face mask, to help accessorize their fave loungewear looks!
