Some of the best days, these days, seem to start when you're feeling down-and-out, wondering if the news alerts pinging your phone by the hour could get any weirder, and then in stomps a new skin-care product you've never tried before — all creamy or gel-like, ready and willing to lift you right up. At your service, you imagine them saying, as if that's not the scariest beauty equivalent to Toy Story ever.
You see, a good moisturiser or face mask (and no, not that one), or even a soothing sunscreen can work wonders at sparking joy or boosting your mood. Not even POPSUGAR beauty editors are immune. That's why we asked them to share the skin-care treatments that offer a dose of self-care on a less-than-perfect day — even though they all sort of blur together at this point.
"OK, yes, I realise this is a shower head, but hear me out here. Since being at home for an extended period of time, I've made sure to only partake in the steps of my beauty routine that I actually enjoy, and while I'm certainly not showering more (in fact, uh, quite the opposite) I want to make sure it's the most luxurious it can be. The Vitaclean HQ Handheld Showerhead + Filter ($70) adds to the overall self-care experience, with its citrusy scent that steams from the head and impressive water pressure. The filtering system also means my skin is getting fewer harsh chemicals from the New York City water. Win-win." — KC
