The last year was tough for all of us but what it brought to the forefront was the need to take care of ourselves. As we excitedly welcome the new year, we hope the importance of taking care of yourself doesn’t take a backseat.
Here’s a quick skincare routine for you
Resolve to solve the Maskne mystery
‘Prevention is better than cure’ – an adage that we all swear by. But, what happens when you are greeted with maskne? A type of acne that occurs from wearing a face mask. Not only is it difficult for your skin, but it also discourages one from wearing a mask regularly.
Among the few ways to keep your skin safe, we highly recommend washing your masks regularly, sticking to a three-layer cloth mask and using a hydrating cleanser that keeps your skin supple and soft. A moisturiser that is free from ceramides can also greatly help prevent these breakouts. Using an alcohol-free toner after mask usage will rid your skin of germs and bring in a refreshing smoothness.
Let your skin breathe
Pamper your skin and let the magic unfold. We all know that sometimes ‘less is more’. Give yourself a break from makeup and let your skin heal. We recommend using healing moisturisers or all night hydrating face masks that will give your skin the nutrients it needs. A recovery oil or a cleansing oil that is non-comedogenic is strongly suggested.
Treat yourself to a home spa
This one is a clear favourite especially if you have hectic working hours. A skin spa ritual every 15 days not only rejuvenates your skin but it prepares your skin for harsh weather changes and scattered routines. All you need is a facial cream that is suited to your skin, a cleanser and a face mask that brings back the glow without leading to an-after-facial-breakout.
Excessive screen time calls for effective eye care
Working from home can be a tad stressful for your eyes. Increased screen time can lead to puffiness and dark circles. And let’s be honest, we hardly pay attention to this very important part of our face. An eye cream with retinol, peptides and vitamin A, ensures faster stimulation for better nourishment and makes sure that the undereye area is healthy. An eye cream with shea butter is also a great addition to your skincare regime.
Your skin deserves a dedicated care routine that is seamless, convenient and completely suited to your needs. Make sure to put yourself first and see the difference. Here’s hoping for a rejuvenating, glowing 2021.
