There couldn’t be a more perfect time for a spa day in. Times are tense, most stores are closed, and there’s plenty of downtime to fill. Plus, you want to limit your trips to the drug store as much as possible, so ordering your go-to toiletries online is much more ideal. Take the opportunity to chill out and treat your body and mind to a little self care, whether that means switching up your hair color or giving your nails a refresh. We rounded up 10 of our favorite at-home spa treatments and on-demand toiletries to try right now, so you can make the most of your time indoors.

Le Mini Macaron Maxi Deluxe Gel Manicure Kit

The lamp is USB powered, so it can plug right into your laptop for a mani anytime, anywhere.
