Beauty Essentials to Stock Up on During Lockdown
There is absolutely no question about it that the most difficult thing for me during this lockdown has not been the fact that I couldn’t see my friends, but rather that I have not been able to go to the magical Beauty on Park Street, to have any of my favorite treatments done. The quarantine however has forced me to get somewhat creative and there are certain essentials which I stocked up on very early on. If you too are in lockdown then I have some great tips on which products to buy.
Before we get into it I should just say that the important products I decided upon were not showy products like make up or nail polish, because I naturally wasn’t going out. This is a good time to practice your make up if you so wish, but I prefer to use this time for a beauty reset.
I am often guilty of not doing enough in terms of my skincare routine and that is something which I wanted to use this time to change. And so I decided to invest in a cleanser, a toner and a moisturizer for my face, and I made a promise to myself at the beginning of the lockdown that I would follow the routine morning and night, I have done that, and the results are amazing.
I never paint my nails but I have always wanted to be better at looking after my hands, plus I knew a manicure would be a cool way to pass the time during lockdown. I decided then to go mad with the Burt’s Bees products for hands, and the difference has been incredible. These products are so great and they are all natural too, they will leave the skin on your hands supple and fresh, and you’ll be able to see results within just a couple of weeks.
I knew that I would have quite a long period of time without seeing anyone which is exactly why I felt that now was the time to give highlights a go, and I have to say that despite expecting the worst, they turned out really well. If you fancy going for a hair color change then now is the perfect time to take a risk, because if it goes wrong nobody has to see it.
I have to be honest I have never seen a directly positive result from wearing a face mask, I am however sure that they are doing some good. What I do recognize however is the amazing and refreshing feeling which you get after you take off a refreshing mask, and that is why this has been a product that I have most definitely stocked up on. This is even more important given that we are staying home all the time, and the lack of air and sunshine does not do anyone any good. Clean the pores with a face mask and feel fresh and clean afterwards.
