Don’t worry, nobody’s proposing you ditch the sweats. But if you want to feel a little fancier, your skin is a good place to start.

Can you remember the last time you did something just for you? If you’re feeling fancy, level up with these three splurges.

1. Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask

Let a face mask do the heavy lifting. Drunk Elephant F-Balm Electrolyte Waterfacial Mask contains super-hydrator coconut water and texture treater niacinamide to even out your complexion. Slap this on when you’re about to embark on your kids’ marathon bedtime routine. It’s designed to be worn overnight, so you can consider your skincare routine sorted. When you rinse it off in the morning, you’re left with nearly newborn-level softness. $68, sephora.ca

2. Dermalogica Awaken Peptide Eye Gel

Since your eyes are barely closing these days, tending to the skin around your peepers is basically an essential service. Dermalogica Awaken Peptide Eye Gel contains a blend of soothing ingredients like rosemary leaf extract, to minimize puffiness and the appearance of fine lines. Dab below your lower lashes and on your orbital bone (just below your brows) using your ring finger, which applies the least amount of pressure to the delicate eye area. $77, dermalogica.ca

3. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum

Serums contain smaller molecules so they can go the extra mile to penetrate below the skin’s surface. But with so many options—some with prices scarier than a poonami—it’s hard to know which bottle to choose. Caudalie Vinoperfect Radiance Serum is an oil-free blend that gives skin a glowy boost, calling upon viniferine, a sap from grapevine stalks, to brighten skin, as well as ultra-moisturizing olive squalane. $95, shoppersdrugmart.ca
