Taking care of your skin is more than just not applying makeup. During this lockdown, there are lots of factors that can influence your skin appearance. I am busy during this lockdown but I try to take good care of my skin even when I decide not to bath very early in the morning since I am not going out.
My lockdown daily skincare routine.
1. No makeup all day, only when needed
- I Clean my face with wet wipes
- Wash my face and apply very little coconut oil with Nivea cream moisturizer.
- I Take my bath by noon. I apply very little coconut oil and Nivea cream moisturizer.
- At night I clean my face and apply Nivea cream moisturizer.
2. Eating good food can help your skin.
I love eating and during this lockdown, I eat in between meals but that isn't so good. It is good to eat healthily and avoid eating late at night. Simple carbohydrates like the refined sugar found in most cakes, cookies, candy, and non-diet soft drinks cause insulin levels to spike and create a wave of inflammation throughout the body. This inflammation leads to a breakdown in collagen and elastin, the fibers that give skin its elasticity and strength.
3. Stress and depression caused by restricted movement, less activeness at home, and fear.
Are you aware that stress is a big enemy of our skin because stress tells a lot about our skin? As humans, when we stress, it causes our body to produce hormones like cortisol, which signals glands in our skin to produce more oil. Oily skin is more prone to acne and other skin problems. Stress can also make skin problems worse. Just try to relax your mind and enjoy the moment, do something that makes you happy, be positive, and stay active at home. Part of my skincare routine is staying happy.
Everyone's skin is different and unique. Not every skincare product recommended by another person might work for you so it is better to study the skincare market and know what works for you before purchasing at random. I haven't struggled with my skin for long, I can't remember the last time I had a proper skin breakout. Just go with the flow but make sure your skin is dirt-free at all times. We are all home and very relaxed, but that doesn't mean we should ignore our daily skincare routine. Whether you go out or not your skin produces oil and also dirt and dust settle on your skin which can cause break out and other skin problems if you do not wash and clean your face properly.
I use a few products which include Goli nutrition supplements which I will be reviewing soon and how it has helped my skin so far. I am not all about the perfect skin, I am not freaked about having the best skin, I do my best by taking care of my skin and I try not to disturb my skin with lots of products. Some people use almost every product they read about online or see a YouTuber review. Trying out products isn't bad but not all products are going to work for your skin so I recommend that you visit a dermatologist if you are facing severe skin issues for guidance, proper medication, and product prescription to avoid making mistakes. Tho, there are products you can try on your own but make sure you read the content of any product before using it if you do not know about a particular ingredient check for it online.
Just so you know most high-branded beauty moisturizers, wipes, facial oils, masks, and all are made with almost similar ingredients so sometimes 20$ beauty products can actually work just like a $50 beauty product. Learn to survey the beauty market and read before investing in some beauty products.
Here is the coconut oil I apply on my face
I got it from a local store, so you can get any pure coconut oil if you like the effect of coconut oil on your skin. MAY body Natures Line coconut oil universal, 100 ml. If you are looking for quality coconut oil, check out the MAY body Natures Line. It is an excellent natural face, body, and hair care product. The oil intensively moisturizes nourishes and stimulates the regeneration process and collagen synthesis. The product smoothes wrinkles and increases firmness and elasticity of the skin. Increases the protective properties of the epidermis. Intensively softens coarsened areas of the skin, and gives smoothness and tenderness.
