These are uncertain times we are all navigating through. We hope that you and your loved ones are keeping safe and healthy. Many businesses are closed, and we understand that you might not have access to your skin care treatments or your soothing self-care routines.
It might feel challenging to deal with everything that is already happening and not have your usual pampering moments accessible. We wanted to create some simple steps to help you take care of your skin while at home. The following suggestions can be easily included in your morning routine to care for your skin and create some consistency for yourself.
Wash Your Face
After a night of sleep, your skin can have unnecessary oils and impurities on it. You can remove these by washing your face first thing in the morning. The skin on your face is more sensitive than the skin on your body. For your daily routine, you will want to focus on a gentle cleanser or a hydrating cleanser. This will make your skin feel fresh and renewed!
Serums are rich in nutrients for your skin. You want to apply your serum to your skin when it is clean and bare. There is not a one-fits-all serum formula. You will want to choose a serum that offers the benefits you are in need of. If you have not found your perfect match yet, View our favorite serums here!
Nurture Your Eyes
The skin under the eyes is very delicate. This is the first area that begins to show lines and wrinkles. Eye creams help to fight morning puffiness and brighten the eyes. They also make the skin under the eyes look more youthful by softening fine lines. This will go a long way to keep you looking your best for video-calls with your friends!
After washing your face, it is really important to re-introduce healthy moisture back into the skin so that it does not become dehydrated or dry. A good moisturizer should have your skin feeling balanced. If you are planning to go outside onto your sunny balcony or your backyard, we recommend that you use a moisturizer with SPF or add SPF after moisturizing.
Integrating these skin-care steps into your morning routine is a great way to take care of your skin during self-isolation. Taking time to care for yourself has never been more important. In addition to healthy skin, taking a pause each morning to pamper yourself will help keep you emotionally grounded and positive throughout the day.
