These days we are not going out much. Consider it a perfect opportunity to give your skin a well-deserved break from fumes, pollution and the elements, and make the most of this time at home to give yourself a little extra care.

Skin essentials:

  • Get enough sleep

Sleep is very important for our overall health. When we don’t get enough sleep our body releases more cortisol, the stress hormone that can cause acne and breakouts. So make sure to get at least 8 hours of sleep daily.

  • Work out regularly

Working out helps our body burn cortisone, which is a good way to reduce stress while helping your skin to stay clear. Also make sure to shower and wash your face right after your workout.

  • Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize!

You have probably been dealing with dryness as a result of washing your hands frequently, and this can impact your face as well. Make sure to use moisturizer after every wash and moisturize your face twice daily after cleansing in the morning and at night.

  • Follow a skin care routine

You should make use of the time you have now and experiment with a good skincare routine that suits your skin type and any problems. You can use skin masks, toners, serums, peels and exfoliators, but only with caution. If you over-treat your skin your pH levels will go up and that can lead to problems. Also make sure to add SPF to your daily skin routine.
