How To Streamline Your Skincare Routine Right Now
Our Ultimate Stuck At Home Quarantine Skincare Guide
Bored in the house and in the house bored. That might be you right now, heck I know I have been there too during this quarantine. Amongst a few other positives (i.e. taking a mental break, spending time with family, etc.), it’s the perfect time to give yourself some self-care and create a skincare routine you might not have before. If you’ve been meaning to clean up your skincare routine, maintain healthy skin and hair, or perhaps create a routine, this is for you. Pass some time at your house and make sure that when you leave, your skin will be the best it’s ever been, especially if you are getting married later in the year.
If you want to simplify your skincare routine, this is the perfect time to declutter your skincare products and see what you actually use, as well as what works for you. You really only need 5 products or less when it comes to a skincare routine and many of the products you can use are in your household (and are natural). The top 5 products that I use in my daily routine are:
Tatcha Rice Scrub Gentle Cleanser
Daily Moisturizer by Khiels
Derma-e Charcoal Scrub
Kelp Blemish Stick
As you can see, I keep my daily routine quite simple when it comes to skincare products. However, I also add in some additional maintenance at least once a week depending on what my skin needs. For example, I might put on a sheet mask at least once a week for ultra-hydration or vitamin-c. Though, healthy skin starts from the inside, so if you want to have healthy skin without much product maintenance, then you may need to take a look at your diet. Your skin is the largest organ in your body, so what you feed it will reflect on the outside. I know for myself, when I eat fried foods, dairy and/or gluten, my skin hates me. I immediately have breakouts (almost overnight), and then I’m on damage control. If you don’t want to do that, focus on foods that promote healthy digestion and skin such as:
Foods high in Omega-3 fatty acids (to keep your skin supple)
Foods high in antioxidants (to keep your skin glowing and dewy)
Ultimately, when it comes to skincare, do what works for you and your skin. If you have a product that you know works, then I would stick with it, as sometimes adding in a new product, can disrupt the natural order on your skin, and result in breakouts or dry skin. Though one of the simplest things you can do for your skin is to let it breathe, so now is the perfect time for ladies to avoid wearing makeup (except when necessary) and embrace the time to make sure your skin is as healthy as it can be.
