I mood-match my underwear in the mornings. If I’ve got lots of hurdles to jump at work or I’m feeling angsty, I dig around for a hot-pink pair. For a day that promises to be more mellow, I go for a pale ochre. When it’s a crack-of-dawn yoga morning, I choose plain, sleek black. It’s a tiny thing that takes a second to discern yet somehow fortifies me for what’s to come.

Massaging this delicate body balm over my calves, stomach, shoulders, and wherever else I’m dry takes next to no time but has a similarly powerful effect. It’s overflowing with the best skin-brightening ingredients: vitamin C, caffeine, and safou oil, which is extracted from safou fruit and is the balm’s skin-pampering secret. The whipped texture is beyond, the big tub it comes in feels fancy and fun to dip into, and it’s intensely moisturizing yet light. And the way it makes me feel—easy, supple, hydrated—sets me up for the day.
