With most of us spending more time at home these days, finding small sources of joy is more important than ever. Naturally, we’re all seeking ways to take better care of ourselves inside and out, and that’s where skin care comes into play. Remember, carving out moments for self-care isn’t shallow or selfish—it’s a way to pause and check in while doing something nice for yourself on a daily basis. Taking care of yourself allows you to take better care of others.

Go ahead and indulge with one of these skin care sets—and if you care to share the love, they all make great gifts for any skin care enthusiast on your list.

1. Multi-Masking Made Simple

Peter Thomas Roth Mask-A-Holic® 5-Piece Set, $75 ($220 value)

Re-create the experience of a high-end facial at home without ever having to leave the comfort of your own bathroom. Designed to tackle a variety of common skin concerns (dryness, breakouts, dullness and aging), this choose-your-own adventure features all of PTR’s greatest hits.

2. The Low-Maintenance Glow

Dermalogica Your Best Cleanse + Glow Holiday Set, $95 ($143 value)

We get it, a complicated multi-step routine is not at the top of everyone’s list. Which is why this streamlined, three-step system is a strong choice for those who want to maintain their glow with minimal effort. Start with a gentle double-cleanse courtesy of a plant-based cleansing oil to remove makeup followed by a soap-free gel to rinse it all away. Finally, a microfoliant helps slough away dead skin cells to reveal smoother, brighter skin.

3. The Brightness Booster

Caudalie Vinoperfect Instant Brightening Set, $79 ($123 value) 

Achieve a brightness that will rival your neighbor’s holiday decorations thanks to the power of organic grapes (specifically, viniferine) and skin-loving ingredients like squalane, glycolic acid, niacinamide and hyaluronic acid. Boasting a serum, brightening moisturizer and overnight cream, these French-focused products help combat dark spots, even skin tone and increase radiance.

4. The Dewy Skin Duo

Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare Peel. Love. Joy., $154 ($238 value)
