Mastering the art of social distancing and multi-tasking has been the mantra for the self-quarantine time during COVID- 19. Buoyant days for our skin and hair are back. Take this time to learn about your skin needs by following some easy steps and making the quarantine a self-care vacation. From using natural ingredients to SPF protection, here are four ways you can take care of your skin and hair.

Go natural
Gone are the days where we stood in front of the mirror perfecting our hair and make-up before stepping out. But, now it’s the best time to avoid make-up and also hair styling tools. Pamper your skin and hair with natural ingredients available in your kitchen and pantry.
Don’t skip the SPF
“I am going to be inside and the sunlight is at bay. Why would I need a sunblock?” Sounds familiar right? That’s because many of us live under the impression that sunblocks are required only when we are exposed to that harsh sunlight. But, that’s a myth! Even when indoors, our skin is exposed to UV lights which can lead to damage to our skin. Make sure to use a sunscreen to avoid signs of ageing like wrinkles and dark spots.

Use essential oils to beat stress
This is a time where we all are putting our inner negativity at bay. Aromatherapy as we know it is a great way to relax at home. From using essentials oil in skincare, bath to rooms, there are many ways you can calm your body and mind.

Make sure to workout
As isolation became normal, its toll on our life starts to emerge in subtle ways like our health. Since there is not much we can do during this lockdown and our physical activity has gone down drastically, its best to indulge in a daily workout routine. Any form of exercise will benefit your body and your skin too. It helps to flush out the toxins and also increase blood circulation.

Last but not the least, stay indoors and stay safe. We’re in a battle against Corona together so let’s continue to strive and eschew it from our lives.
