Coronavirus has shocked most of the world. It’s forced us into our homes to prevent further spreading of the virus, leaving us with plenty of time on our hands and encouraging us to find ways to keep ourselves occupied.
Considering the stress build-up that can be caused from being stuck in four walls, it’s important that we still take the time to look after ourselves too. We don’t have the privilege of going to our local plastic surgery clinic down the road to top up the botox. Therefore, we have to think of more natural, alternative methods to enhance and maintain our beauty.
We have so much time on our hands, there’s no better time to review our beauty routine. Here are some tips for you.
Apply Moisturiser Morning and Night
This is probably a common routine for most of us, but this is a great habit to get into if you don’t do it already. By moisturizing your skin regularly, it can help to lock in moisture if you’ve cleansed in the morning or just before bed.
Skin appears soft and well treated, providing it the plumpness that you’ve been craving. In the long term, this can provide the youthful skin that you’re looking for, without the dry cracks appearing.
Stop Heating your Hair
It’s always good to look your best, whether you’re heading for a night out and making your way to work. These days and nights are now on hold, so the need to blow dry or curl your hair isn’t necessary.
Instead, replace the heat treatments with natural treatments that can help to repair your damaged hair. It might even be time to re-examine your hair, give it the much needed trim it’s been needing to get rid of loose ends.
Pause the Make-up
The only people you’re likely to be seeing for the next couple of months or so are your parents and close family members. They’ve seen you without make-up from all the times you’ve had a cosy night in, so there’s no need to apply it for a while.
It can be hard for your skin to breathe when it’s constantly covered in foundation and powder. Now is the perfect time for you to embrace your natural beauty and be more comfortable in your own skin. Allow your natural appearance to do the talking whilst you’re stuck indoors and allow it to cleanse naturally.
Drink plenty of Water
Being at home gives you the privilege of having access to your tap water all the time. It means there’s no excuse not to have water when you wish to have it. On average, men should be having 3.7 liters of water daily, whilst women should be having 2.3 litres of water daily.
Not only is the daily recommended amount needed to stay healthy, but it can also do wonders for your skin. It keeps your skin hydrated and helps your nails and provides brighter eyes, enhancing your appearance on the whole.
Now that we’re required to quarantine, many of our routines have been disrupted and our regimes have almost been thrown out the window. On a positive note, it also provides up plenty of time to invest in ourselves. Using these tips can ensure how we look on the outside will have us looking refreshed when we finally come out of quarantine.
