Quarantine Skincare Tips

Top Quarantine Skincare Tips

Being quarantined and stuck in the house means environmental stressors like the sun, pollutants, pollen, etc. should no longer affect your skin. Also, you are probably refraining from wearing makeup and keeping up with your skincare routine. So, after spending time inside your house to maintain social distancing, your skin should be glowing, right?

Well, not really. While it is a promising idea to give your skin a breather, neglecting your skin during this lock-down could undermine your skincare routine when things get back to normal. So, what can you do to maintain a skincare routine at home and make the most of this quarantine time?

Here, we have outlined our top quarantine skincare tips to rejuvenate your skin in the comfort of your own home.

Moisturize Your Entire Body

Most people when they hear the words "skincare routine," they only think of the face. But that is further from the truth, as a great skincare regimen is one that involves moisturizing and exfoliating our skin from the head to the tips of your toes and do not forget those hands!

Yep, your hands are one area that is going to need some extra TLC, especially when you are washing them multiple times a day as well as using hand sanitizer. Hence, you want to use a hydrating lotion, preferable a non-greasy formula.

Did You Know the Skin on Our Hands Shows Our Age More So Than the Face?

That is right, the skin on our hands is much thinner than the skin on our face, and it is one area that can really show your age. Plus, with the constant daily exposure to hot water, soaps, and antibacterial, it can affect the skin's ability to retain moisture.

If you do not want to use a simple moisturizing cream, try some at-home staples such as a mixture of coconut oil, honey, and olive oil. These three powerful ingredients are enriched antimicrobial properties and hydrating humectants to moisturize the skin and make it radiant and glowing.

Dry Brushing

Considering most of us have a lot of free time, there is no better time than now to implement some dry brushing. Dry brushing is a terrific way to eliminate toxins and detoxify the body as it increases the blood circulation, stimulates the nervous system, unclogs your pores, and exfoliates your entire body.

How to Dry Brush

Dry brushing is easy. All you need is a firm bristle brush, and you want to sweep the brush across your entire body. Both the brush and your skin are dry; this is not something you do while wet in the tub. Since dry brushing can leave your skin feeling dry, you want to make sure to nourish the skin after with a product like our body butter. This fast-absorbing whipped formula revitalizes and nourishes the skin, leaving behind lasting hydration and a velvety soft finish.

Exfoliate for Younger Looking Skin

Just because you are not wearing makeup every day does not mean you should not be cleansing and exfoliating. We suggest exfoliating your skin once a week to help eliminate those built-up dead skin cells, dirt, and oils that can clog the pores. Well-exfoliated skin holds its moisture better and offers a glowing, deeply conditioned complexion. Our go-to product during quarantine is our Pure Mint Exfoliating Cleanser. This cleanser's energizing peppermint scent makes it the perfect way to start your day!

Now You Are Ready to Try A Hydrating Mask

Why not take the time to spa at home. With products like our Sahara Rose Bubble Mask. This bubbling face mask infuses your skin with oxygen and antioxidant-rich botanicals to deliver a surge of nourishing hydration. It is an instant fix for dull, lackluster skin.

Want to Know A Secret?

It Is Hands-Free Beauty

Now you are probably wondering how it that possible as it is second nature to use our hands when it comes to skincare. What is more, the CDC advising against touching our faces, which can make applying your skincare products a bit tricky. But no need to feel any apprehension as there are plenty of everyday items you have in your beauty aerosol, that can make it possible to apply your skincare products without having to use your hands. Look at some of our favorites!

Beauty Sponge

Whether a beauty blender or a generic beauty sponge, they are not just used to apply makeup. This little pink beauty is also great for applying toners, serums, and other skincare.

Makeup Brush

Makeup brushes are one of the easiest ways of applying your skincare products. With the variety of synthetic makeup brushes out there, you will most certainly find one to accommodate your skincare needs.

Q-Tips

These little bad boys have been around forever, but it is one item that many of us do not think to use to apply skincare. With the skin around the eyes being so delicate, Q-tips, dipped in your favorite eye cream, is a wonderful way to eliminate dry skin, dark circles, and fine lines.

Do Not Forget to Cleanse Your Beauty Tools

With everything else we have been cleaning and sanitizing, your beauty tools need to be included. Not only do these devices harbor dead skin cells and bacteria, dirty makeup brushes and sponges can lead to premature aging by exposing our skin to oxidative stress caused by free radicals.

So, as you can see there are tons of ways to keep up your beauty routine and even find some extra me time!
