Don’t like jostling with the crowds? Check out these mobile beauty services for a relaxing session in the comfort of home. By LYDIA KWON.

Pandemic or not, there’s no reason to stop taking care of yourself. While Singapore’s COVID-19 restrictions on beauty services that require mask-wearing have recently been lifted, you might find yourself more comfortable staying home instead of heading out. Enter mobile beauty services—ranging from facials to manicures, that allow you to pamper yourself at home. After all, beauty treatments have been shown to effectively relieve stress and help us relax, particularly in these trying times.

We’ve rounded up five wellness companies that provide house call services, so you can get your long-awaited beauty fix in a jiffy.
