While most of us are hunkered down, working remotely and ultimately, “social distancing,” it’s normal to feel isolated, frustrated and stressed. After all, it’s in our human nature to want to be around others. But the good news? There’s a lot you can do for your skin. And once this phase of social distancing is over, you’ll step out into Spring with renewed, fresh skin. Here are a few ways to improve your skin as you’re social distancing:
1) Start (and keep) your skincare routine
We’ve said this before: every skincare routine needs Vitamin C, sunscreen and retinol. Since you’re home working or doing all the chores on your to-do list, you have few excuses now to skip that skincare routine. So if you haven’t secured that Vitamin C, sunscreen or retinol we’ve been recommending for your skincare routine, now’s the time to order and start using the products. Typically, you’ll notice results after a few weeks – so start it now, and see how beautiful your skin will be when it’s safe to be around other humans.
2) Research that facial procedure you always dreamed of doing
Whether you’re interested in Rhinoplasty or Halo Laser Resurfacing, it’s a good idea to always do your research to get a better idea about what’s involved in the procedure and what recovery may look like. And talk to friends who’ve been through the procedure before to get a better understanding of what real results may be like.
3) Cut back on wearing makeup
We love our makeup too. But it’s good to go a few days without makeup so your skin can actually breathe. And if you’re starting a new skincare routine, it’s good to give your skin some time away from foundation or face powder. Chances are, your pores will thank you.
4) Relax with an at-home mask
With multiple options available on the market, multiple facial mask options can help unclog pores, reduce redness or simply evoke relaxation. It’s no surprise we’re all feeling stressed these days, so a simple at-home mask may be all you need to chill out.
5) Make your skincare appointments
