7 Mood Boosting Skincare Products that Work Almost Instantly
A quick route to a serotonin boost this season? Skincare!
“Skincare is rewarding because with consistent skincare routines, you are likely to see visible effects such as smoothness or radiance, and that in itself can boost self-esteem, which in turn will boost mood,” says Dr. Sanam Hafeez, founder of Comprehensive Consultation Psychological Services.
Having a routine can also make you feel like you’re honoring yourself aesthetically, making you feel happier and more energetic. On top of all that, it helps you look forward to something at the end and start of the day which boasts mood-boosting benefits.
The experience is even better when you’re using skincare products with luxurious textures and satisfying scents.
Here, our fave mood boosting skincare products that’ll lift your spirits in a flash.
