6 Quarantine Beauty TipsThe coronavirus pandemic has drastically changed our lives. Forced to stay at home, a lot of people have reconsidered their attitude towards their beauty habits and routines; some have chosen to be more relaxed, while others stick to their beauty regimen even more vigorously than before because it helps them calm down and stay sane. Regardless of which group you belong to, check out these quarantine beauty tips that may come in handy.

Remember That Maintaining Good Personal Hygiene Is Important for Self-Care

Quarantine, self-isolation, social distancing – no matter what you call it, that fact is that millions of people around the world are staying at home. In such a situation, it may be so tempting to stay in bed all day, brush your teeth every other day and stop washing your head – if no one sees you, why bother? However, you should remember that your personal hygiene is directly linked to your mental state: neglecting it is one of the first signs of depression. Daily shower, clean hair and body, and moderate physical activity are essential for your mental health during these tough times.

Take Care of Your Hands

You wash your hands and use sanitizer more frequently than ever, which has probably taken a toll on your skin. To prevent dry and flaky skin, try washing your hands with soap that contains moisturizing and skin healing ingredients, such as carrier oils and panthenol. It’s also a good idea to buy two hand creams; put one on your sink to use it every time you wash your hands, and the other on your nightstand to apply before going to bed. If you go outside in latex gloves, apply cream before putting them on, it’ll help the cream absorb better.

Treat Yourself to Masks

Even if you are working from home and don’t have much time to pamper yourself, you can surely find a couple of minutes to apply a hair or face mask, then go on with your day. Now is the best time to make use of all the sheet masks you’ve been meaning to try but never had time to or those under-eye patches you’ve got as a gift.

Use Body Moisturizer

Body lotion or cream is another great product that many people didn’t have enough time for before the quarantine. If your skin has become dry, buy a thick cream for dehydrated skin or try coconut oil. If your skin is okay, any body cream or lotion will do. Be sure to buy a cream or lotion that smells nice; it will boost your mood and make staying at home a little more bearable.

Figure Out Which Beauty Rituals Make You Feel Better

Many people have decided that they don’t have to stick to a daily routine during quarantine, but the thing is, you need at least some structure in your life to stay sane. For example, you can use beauty rituals to keep track of the days of the week: clay masks on Tuesdays, chemical peels on Saturdays, deep hydration on Sundays, etc. If you’re staying at home with your partner and child(ren), it is especially important for you to have some “me” time and pamper yourself.
