Dental care

If you've been wanting a brighter smile, Amazon Prime Day is prime time to stock up on whitening products and tools — including Crest Whitestrips and electric toothbrushes from Oral-B, Colgate, and Philips Sonicare. Even if your regular dentist appointments have been pushed around, you can definitely achieve a brighter smile and maintain healthy gums at home with the right products and tools. 

Make sure you're switching out your toothbrush every three to four months, or better yet, get an electric toothbrush with that helps you create and maintain better brushing habits and just replace the heads. Don't forget to floss, either — in fact, a Waterpik flosser is a great way to get rid of all the plaque hiding in the nooks and crannies of your teeth.

Skin care

There are a few things your beauty cabinet always needs, including sunscreen and makeup remover. EltaMD's tinted moisturizer evens out your skin tone and provides SPF 44 to guard your skin against UV rays. Refresh skin or remove stubborn eye makeup with hydrating micellar water from Bioderma, and pair your favorite cleansers with the Foreo Luna Mini 2 to get every bit of dirt and oil out of your pores. K-beauty brands such as Cosrx, Hanskin, Neogen, and I Dew Care are offering 30 percent off of popular products, including the Advanced Snail 96 Mucin Power Essence and PHA Pore Cleansing Balm.

Hair care

No blowout appointments? No problem. You can still style your hair to perfection with the John Freida Hot Air Brush or Cake Beauty The Curl Whipped Curl Mousse. But before you get to styling, strengthen your hair with Pantene's damage-repairing shampoo and conditioner, or quench dry curls with Carol's Daughter Coco Crème line. 

You can even skip your usual conditioner and revive your hair in less than 10 seconds (yes, you read that right) with the L'Oréal Paris Elvive 8 Second Wonder Water, which won a Best of Beauty Breakthrough Award this year. Or prolong wash day altogether with an Oribe dry shampoo — because what's another day, anyway?

Top off your above-the-mask look with a Sigma Beauty palette filled with beautiful everyday eye shadows, and skip your foundation in favor of a Lorac contour and concealer palette. If your day is filled with Zoom calls, reach for a Peripera Ink Velvet lip tint for the perfect burst of mood-boosting color.
