Don’t feel like washing your hair? We get it. Skip the shower and spritz Living Proof dry shampoo into your roots instead. It actually cleans oil from the hair, instead of just masking it—and it smells heavenly. Spray, brush through, and join your Zoom call looking fresh.
Show your skin a little love with this Rose Quartz Facial Roller. Use the small or large rose quartz (known for its “love” energy) rollers to gently reduce puffiness, stimulate drainage, and apply face oil. Store the roller in the fridge for a boosted cooling effect. You can face massage away while bingeing your favorite shows—skin care is rarely this easy.
When Ole Henriksen launched this game-changing eye cream in 2018, it was impossible to find the jars online and in shelves for months. Why? It works—and it does double duty. The cream contains vitamin C to brighten the under eyes, collagen to firm the skin, and it creates a canvas for seamlessly putting on concealer (if you want more coverage). Banana isn’t an ingredient, it refers to the yellow tone of the cream, which brightens and color corrects. P.S. Your writer is wearing this as she types.
Kiehl’s miracle in a bottle has essential oils and distilled botanicals like lavender and evening primrose that work to soften skin and refine the look of pores overnight. You only need a few drops for results by morning—the reason it has almost 80,000 hearts on Sephora. Add yours.
Now might not seem like the time for a new lip look, but hear us out. The Charlotte Tilbury lipstick and liner basically broke the internet when they launched. Why? The subtle color re-shapes and re-sizes your lips for a natural, but noticeable pout. If you’re distance dating over Facetime (or dialing in for a work presentation), a few quick lip swipes will effortlessly amp up your look.
Spending more time relaxing in bed lately? We’re guilty as charged. Upgrade your linens with celebrity-favorite SLIP silk pillowcases. Unlike cotton and synthetic satin, silk allows the skin to breathe and the fibers won’t get caught in your hair—allowing for a perfect night of beauty rest. If these silk pillowcases are good enough for Chrissy Teigen to sleep on, they’re good enough for us.
Since you can’t get to the tropics anytime soon, bring relaxing and healing coconut properties straight to your bathroom. Herbivore Coconut Milk Bath Soak is formulated with vanilla notes and coconut milk powder, which moisturizes, softens, and soothes the skin. A few scoops go a long way toward vacation bliss vibes.
Have you considered drinking your skincare routine? Collagen is a needed building block for the body, and adding it to your diet can help hair and nails grow. We love Vital Proteins collagen, it’s easy to digest, flavorless, and easily mixes into a smoothie, oatmeal, or with coffee and water. Drink up!
You can’t get to a salon right now to touch up your roots (sorry) but you can give yourself a hair-restoring professional salon treatment at home with Olaplex Hair Perfector No. 3. Platinum blondes swear by this miracle worker—it actually relinks the broken disulfide bonds caused by chemical (hair bleaching) and thermal (your flatiron and hairdryer) processes. What does that mean? It basically fixes damaged hair. Seriously.
