I planned to emerge from quarantine like a butterfly out of its chrysalis—but unfortunately pandemic stress on top of my usual levels of anxiety has not been kind to my skin. (Clearly my neurotransmitters did not get the TPWK memo from Harry Styles.) This has made me extra diligent about my skin-care routine, because while of course fine lines and wrinkles are a normal part of the aging process, I want to prevent the aforementioned anxiety from damaging my skin. From now until July 7, Sephora is offering 25 percent off all Fresh products plus free shipping. This means you can snag the day cream that I—and many other of our editors—swear by at a discount. (Run, don't walk!) Fresh Lotus Youth Preserve Moisturizer is on sale for $38, down from $50.

Fresh is a beauty editor-beloved skin-care brand that blends efficacy and sensation (read: the products actually work, and also feel nice when you apply them). Such is the case with this cream. It feels indulgent to apply, but is lightweight, sinks into skin, and has a fresh (ha) scent. It's lovely for summer because while it is super hydrating, it doesn't feel greasy or heavy. Round of applause for the hyaluronic acid—a humectant that attracts and retains moisture within skin—which helps this moisturizer pull off such a feat. It also wears nicely under makeup.

Super lotus is the ingredient that stars in Fresh's "Lotus" line. Super lotus is loaded with antioxidants that fight against free radicals—pesky unbound electrons that result from a number of things and are often the culprit behind fine lines, age spots, and collagen loss. Antioxidants help to pair off these electrons so they don't roam your skin making trouble. On top of the skin-bettering antioxidants, the resulting dewiness from the product isn't bad, either. At 25 percent off, this moisturizer isn't going to stay in stock much longer (many of our other favorite Fresh products are already sold out). *Adds to cart*
