Some beauty products fill me with total, unadulterated joy. In fact, whenever I need a little boost in spirits, beauty is the first thing I turn to. And it sounds shallow, I know, but it really does work for me. When I start the day on a downer, there are very few things that can actually improve my mood. I mean, a slice of freshly-baked Victoria sponge and a cup of tea can only keep me content for so long. And I’m not one of those people that can power through a situation regardless of their mood, either. If I’m sad, anxious, grumpy or just plain angry, it’s an all-encompassing sort of situation.
I have found that over the years, the way that I’m feeling has a lot to do with how I’m treating myself. With a solid beauty routine being one of the easiest ways to show yourself some love, I’ve spent a lot of time honing quick, no-fuss beauty rituals that guarantee to get me out of a funk. It sounds extra, I know, but for me, it honestly works.
For instance, I know that when I’m struggling to sleep, reaching for my This Works Deep Sleep Pillow Spray and a Spacemask will have me out like a light. If I’m feeling anxious, I know my go-to Aromatherapy Associates Revive Bath Oil and Omorovicza Gold Sugar Body Scrub will calm my mind, at least for a few minutes.
But while sleep-inducing and anti-anxiety beauty products are by far two of the most well-known sections of the mood-shifting beauty market, that’s not to say it stops there. Whether I’m feeling frustrated, stressed, forlorn or just plain down in the dumps, there’s a product out there for me.
And sadly, now more so than ever, without the option of blowing off some steam with an outdoor run or a visit to a friend, I’ve found myself turning to my trusty mood-boosting beauty products more so than ever. From zingy hand creams to cooling face masks, keep scrolling to discover the most emotionally uplifting beauty products around.
