Even if you're a skin-care newbie, chances are, you already know the importance of washing your face and implementing a solid skin-care routine. While you wouldn’t necessarily categorize these seemingly simple, small tasks as fun, a cute skin-care headband can make the experience a lot more enjoyable. 
Fortunately, there are dozens (if not hundreds) of skincare headbands available in an array of materials, styles, colors, and patterns to suit your personal style preferences. Ultimately, regardless of which material you choose, the best skin-care headbands offer comfort and support to protect your edges and keep hair out of your face as you apply your products and cleanse your skin.
Additionally, many of the best bands are made with super-soft, stretchy, and machine-washable materials like microfiber and terry cloth. Some include luxurious details like silk fabric or a hook and loop closure instead of velcro. Others offer adjustable designs and elasticized backs, both of which make for a more customizable fit — sans rubbing, tugging, or irritation.
Whether your nighttime routine calls for a chic printed band or morning prep needs a straightforward, yet efficient, Amazon find — we've rounded up a useful batch of skin-care headbands to transform your self-care experience.

Glow Recipe's Blueberry Spa Headband is just as fun to wear as it is functional. The adorable bendable bunny ears ensure your hair stays pushed back as you get ready for the day — or night — ahead. Plus, it's made with recycled cotton: an added bonus to feel good about when hitting "add to cart."
Between the soft pink color and embroidered logo, this Kylie Skin Headband has Instagram selfie written all over it. Pair the soft terry cloth band with a full Kylie Skin product lineup, or stick with your own skin-care routine. Either way, as you work your way through your cleansers and creams, prepare to snap a few photos in the process.
Honest Beauty Fuzzy Headband feels like a soft teddy bear against your head. The cozy fabric easily stretches to get around your head, but then sits securely without sliding off while you wash and work around the band. Plus, the little ears are simply adorable.
Free People's Leila Soft Headband works just as well with an outside outfit as it does with your bathrobe. The classic bandana-style pattern comes in three colors, including this mint shade show above, and can be worn gathered up into a tight band or spread the fabric out to cover more of your hair like a headscarf
Volo Beauty's elastic Spa Headband is constructed with a super-soft blend of nylon and polyester fabric. It's designed to gently keep hair in place without slipping or sliding out of place. Choose from two neutral shades: light gray (show above) or pale pink.
This chic leopard-printed Microfiber Spa Headband from Kitsch features a plush microfiber fabric — and the band is multifunctional, too. Use the built-in slit at the back to pull your hair back into a ponytail without relying on a separate hair tie, and then secure the front of hair with the velcro closure. 
At just under five dollars, this adorable Pocova Microfiber Bowtie Headband is a total steal. Its plush bowtie design adds a playful flair to any bedtime or morning routine, while the thick and sturdy microfiber and elastic material prevent the band from losing its shape.
Slip's Pure Silk Headband is — as its name so appropriately suggests — made with 100 percent silk. The elastic back prevents the band from sliding around your head, while the knotted front design keeps hair out of sight, out of mind. You can easily get away with wearing this one out of the house as you would any standard headband
Love a bold accessory? Consider this vibrant, statement-making Lele Sadoughi Pink Multi Terry Cloth Knitted Headband. The wide, moisture-absorbing terry cloth material keeps hair dry — even through a double-cleansing routine — both around the hairline and strands that might spill over from the crown. 
Another ideal option for thick, full hair is the Appearus Stretchable Spa Headband, which can expand up to 28 inches (from 21 inches). A hook-and-loop closure offers a secure fit while the terry cloth material keeps hair in place and dry through every step of your skin-care routine. The band comes in a pack of four so you can easily keep one at home and pack another when you travel. 
Live The Process' signature headband is designed with a blend of moisture-wicking fabric and offers a four-way stretch for added comfort. The front-twist design also adds a stylish touch. And if you like to coordinate your bath accessories, this band is available in 19 different colors.
