Feeling confident and comfortable in your own skin is a mood boost that cannot be underestimated. Put on a dress that feels amazing and it can take you from the doldrums to dancing. Or maybe it’s the scent of your favorite lotion on your skin that makes you stand up tall and sing your praises. Sometimes, changing the lighting or the look of your room will even make you feel your sultry best. It’s all about reaching that peak mood that feels so right.

Try these 35 clever little ways to look and feel at your peak (that actually work) and you’ll see. Let the fireworks begin.


Making Your Skin Glow With A Lightweight, Hydrating Oil Mist

When you step out of the shower — with your skin still warm and wet — spray yourself all over with this moisturizing dry body oil mist made with jojoba and oat oil. The oil and water will hydrate, the oat will soothe, and the jojoba will give your outer layer a soft suppleness that feels delicious.


Getting Softer Feet With A Glass Foot File

Skip the pumice stones and other methods and go straight to this glass foot file for a quick, effective, and gentle method of removing hard skin and calluses from your feet. Buff your hard heels dry or in the shower and you may be startled by the near-instant results. It’s amazing what a difference it makes to use the right tool for the job.


Giving Your Hands An Intense Moisturizing Treatment

Give your dry hands a pampering treatment to help boost your mood. Pull on these collagen-infused gloves and wear those mitts for a few minutes. The intense shea butter and botanical serum that lines the gloves help infuse your hands with intense moisture so they emerge softer and refreshed.


Dry Brushing Your Skin With This Massager Brush

Use this body brush to turn the moment before your morning shower into a moment of self-care that will help leave your skin soft, improve circulation, release toxins, and exfoliate. It also feels terrific. A loop makes it easy to hold the brush in your hand, the built-in massager nubs give deeper stimulation, and a long handle helps you access hard-to-reach areas.

“The [...] Body Brush not only [sloughed] off dry skin, it helped with blood flow and invigorated my skin. What a great feeling!” said one reviewer.


Going One & Done With Makeup Using This Multi Stick

Keep this multi-stick handy for a quick touch-up to cheeks, eyes, and lips, and give yourself a makeover without the need for an entire kit. The simple, blendable colors work as a monochromatic, all-over look or just as an easy blusher or lip color. The creamy texture is hydrating, too.

“This little blush stick is hard working and so convenient!” said one reviewer. “I use it as blush and lip color. It glides on and blends easily.”


Soaking In Some Moisturizer While You Bathe

Fill a hot bath, squirt in a little of this body oil, and soak in the relaxation and deep skin moisturizing all at once. Or apply it directly to your skin after a hot shower for a similar effect. The light sesame oil leaves your skin feeling smooth, silky, and pampered. Give it some nourishment and it will glow.


Mastering A Perfect Winged Cat Eye With This Stamp

If you love a cat eye, now you can get the perfect line — without having to redo it a thousand times to get there — with this winged eyeliner stamp. Get both eyes the same, in a quick and easy move. This is the winged eyeliner to accomplish it all in just a few minutes.

“This eyeliner took no time at all to apply, both sides were even, and I didn’t have to try again and again like I do with stick or gel liners,” said one reviewer.


Using This Ancient Remedy To Encourage Softer Hair & Skin

A mixture of cold-pressed olive oil, almond oil, vitamin E oil, and lavender essential oil, the formula of this simple oil moisturizer will help cure what ails your outer layers. Skin and hair drink up the lightweight oils. The result is hair that is more manageable and skin that is soft.

“Even after the first use, my skin felt amazing,” said one reviewer. “It has completely replaced any and all moisturizers for me and my skin hasn't looked and felt so good in longer than I can remember.”


Pumping Your Hair Volume With The Power Of Polymers

Turn up the volume of your hair with this dry texture spray that helps plump, lift the roots, texturize, and separate your hair strands by adding modifying polymers. The result is a fuller look without the stiffness or crunch of hair spray.

“It's like INSTANT HAIR for those of us who were not blessed with thick hair,” said one reviewer. “I love the fact that the spray is so fine, and yet it holds your hair up, making it appear like you have much more hair than you actually have.”


Releasing The Smoother Feet Within Using This Foot Peel Mask

Want a complete reset on your feet? Slip them into these peeling foot masks. It’s like wearing socks while you relax and read or watch a movie. When you take them off, the magic starts.
