Staying at home has its many joys, but can leave us feeling a little lacklustre when it comes to our wellbeing – from daily dips in mood as we adjust to new routines to beauty dilemmas such as parched skin. If you’re in need of a pick-me-up, here are six online feel-good beauty buys to lift the spirits and boost your skincare regime:

St Tropez Purity Vitamins Bronzing Water Face Serum and Body Mist 

Your must-haves for a sunkissed look without stepping outdoors. This bronzing duo contains more than 90 per cent natural ingredients, including Vitamin C and D (they are vegan-friendly too). Both are colourless and non-sticky, have a tropical scent – no more off-putting biscuit-like odour – and create a natural glow. Face Serum, £22; Body Mist, £31; cultbeauty.co.uk

Clinique My Happy, £19 each

Clinique My Happy 

With uncanny prescience, Clinique has launched My Happy, a collection of six scents based on the brand’s bestselling Happy perfume, each designed to evoke an emotional connection to (some much-needed) joy. Happy Splash is a fresh floral fragrance with energising citrus; Peace & Jasmin has been created to instil calm; Blue Sky Neroli recalls the uplifting scent of nature after rainfall; while Cocoa & Cashmere resonates as we all hunker down at home – blended to trigger memories of baked treats, it is a fusion of cocoa, vanilla and musk. If you're missing the great outdoors, consider Peony Picnic – a walk in a sun-drenched flower garden – or Lily of the Beach, a scent recalling the exotic flora and salty tang of the ocean. £19 each; clinique.co.uk

Frances Prescott Tri-Body Treatment

Make-up artist and facialist Frances Prescott has followed her popular Tri-Balm with the Tri-Body Treatment – a natural multitasker that not only cleanses but gently exfoliates and moisturises the skin in one gel-to-milk formula. The goodie-packed treatment includes seaweed extract and rice bran oil to lock in moisture, plus an uplifting blend of essential oils – ylang ylang, black pepper, vetiver and lime – promising to promote wellbeing. £44, francesprescott.com

Roja Parfums Figuier d’Italie candle, £95

Roja Parfums Figuier d’Italie candle

The master perfumer Roja Dove describes the aroma of this candle as akin to “sitting beneath the shade of a tree, the woody scent of stems and leaves contrasting against the sweetness of sap and fruit”. Use it to bring the outdoors inside – just sit back, close your eyes and let the fragrance transport you to a summer’s day. £95; rojaparfums.com

Dr Hauschka Moor Lavender Calming Bath Essence

This blissful bath essence is blended to vegan-based organic or biodynamic principles. That might sound like pseudoscience, but basically means that the ingredients used in it are grown using a method of organic farming and gardening with a holistic and spiritual approach. The essence promises to promote calm and boost mood, but, when applied with warm flannel, also makes for a muscle-soothing compress. £17; drhauschka.co.uk

Aromatherapy Associates Aera Smart Diffuser and Capsule Collection

Lighting a scented candle is a great way to relax, but can leave you feeling fraught if you’re accident prone – especially at a time when children might be running around the house. This is a good mood-boosting alternative. Insert a capsule into the diffuser to release the 100 per cent natural aromatherapy oils. Each capsule is estimated to last for up to 500 hours if you’re in need of extra R&R. Diffuser, £200; capsule replacements, £55; aromatherapyassociates.com
