The Just-for-You Checklist to
Revive Your Skin, Hair, and Body

At this point in the year, anything you can do on a daily basis to bring yourself back into your body and out of your head should deliver resounding benefits. Breathing through a short yoga flow, going for a brisk walk, taking two minutes to massage your limbs, running through an easy skin-care routine, taking a bath—all transmit the same stop-what-you’re-doing-and-take-time-for-yourself message. From magic face oil and silkifying body butter to shine-boosting hair serum, these exquisite essentials leave every inch of you glowing, pampered, and deeply replenished.

FACE

Sweep away dead skin cells

Exfoliate a few times a week and the difference in your skin—more luminous, more alive, smoother—jumps out at you. Glycolic acid and physical exfoliating minerals in Microderm gently smooth away makeup, oil, dead cells, and late nights (which truly do your skin no favors), leaving your skin instantly brighter, softer, and practically pore-less.

Flood skin with antioxidants

The antidote to dull, tired skin, the powerful antioxidant vitamin C brightens, smooths, illuminates, firms, and tones—and it works for every skin type. For most people, this daily treatment makes a noticeable change in skin in under a week, but the benefits keep going long-term, too. It’s the best way we know to wake up skin—and to protect it from environmental aggressors at the same time.

Moisturize (and moisturize some more)

Deeply hydrate your skin on a regular basis and radiance returns, wrinkles appear less noticeable, and the need for makeup lessens considerably.

Humectants

Humectants, found in ingredients like aloe, hyaluronic acid, and glycerin, are molecules that attract water. With a light consistency, they sink immediately into skin, so they’re excellent for all skin types (even super oily), and they layer beautifully under more heavy-duty moisturizers as a base.

Face Oil with Bakuchiol

This gives an instant glow, beautiful moisture, and, long-term, a gorgeous antiwrinkle and brightening effect from bakuchiol, a natural retinol alternative. For some skin, it’s great on its own; for drier skin, it helps lock in moisture when layered over cream. It’s also brilliant to pat over makeup to revive midday.

HANDS

This new intensely nourishing, firming hand cream leaves skin almost impossibly baby soft. The blend of jojoba, cupuaçu butter, and shea smells fresh, melts in like a dream, and makes us wish we had a cute tube stashed in every single bag, glove compartment, and bedside table we encounter from here on out.

LIPS

Supple, plumped-with-moisture lips give your whole face a boost and feel as youthful as they look. A swipe of the lip balm from goop—we love the new, sheer pigmented ones as much as we do the OG clear one—deposits a layer of cushiony jojoba, castor, and coconut oils that lasts for hours and leaves lips silky, soothed, and plush.

BODY

A whole-body check-in, at least twice a day, can shift your energy, your mood, and the state of your skin.

Morning

Dry brushing invigorates the senses, smooths away roughness, and kick-starts the day. Sweep the brush up your legs and arms (in the direction of your heart), pressing down hard enough that the natural sisal bristles feel firm against your skin.

Give yourself a massage every morning (we learned this brilliant tip from Erica Chidi, goop Podcast cohost and CEO of LOOM, a reproductive health company) to boost the psyche along with the skin. Whether you prefer decadently rich body butter, oil, or boob cream (the best), the resulting silkiness is beyond.

Night

One of GP’s favorite rituals (she tries to do it every evening) is to light a candle, pour “The Martini” (a time-stopping blend of Epsom salts and passionflower) into a warm bath, and soak—eyes closed—for a good twenty minutes.

HAIR

The easiest formula for coaxing hair, no matter the texture, back into its best shape is this routine:

  1. 1. Work GOOPGLOW serum into dry hair, allowing the blend of frizz-smoothing, moisturizing, replenishing oils to sit for at least twenty minutes.

  2. 2. Shampoo with the pink salt scalp scrub from G.Tox; the salt and detoxifying oils exfoliate and dissolve product buildup and oil to support healthy hair growth.

BIKINI LINE

Whether your vibe is lustrous bush, utterly hairless, or something in between, a soothed, cared-for bikini area feels and looks good. We love the hydrating strip and sleek shave we get from the razor from Flamingo.

Everything from Fur is ingenious: The mitt is saturated with ingrown-hair-eliminating salicylic acid and soothing aloe; the cream, swirled with botanical extracts, helps calm razor burn; and the oil softens hair on any area of the body to make hair removal less painful and more streamlined (for real, it works fantastically).
