The Beautiful Upside of Social Isolation
How has social isolation been in your household? It’s normal to find yourself sliding away from disciplines and good habits you’ve built for yourself. While we have this “time off”, I’m appreciating the beauty benefits to be found in our new downtime! Here are some tips to keep you fresh and rejuvenated:
Build a new ritual for your face. Start each morning with a deep cleaning using your favorite facial cleansers and lots of steam and warm water. Take your time, massage your skin and rinse thoroughly. Weekly exfoliation is a good treat for smooth glowing skin. Follow with your favorite anti-aging moisturizer, giving yourself another slow deep facial massage. If dark spots or pigmentation is an issue, we have stabilizing creams available for you. The good news is, you can take your time and really enjoy the experience of caring for yourself in this way! Heavy up on the moisturizer and lighten up on the makeup for these great ’stay at home’ days. Even inside, don’t skimp on the SPF.
Go wild with the Big Three: Water. Walk. Sleep. These are three big gifts for your complexion, and if you do all three with great abandon, your mirror will reward you with a younger brighter you! Drink those 8-10 glasses of water today and everyday. Take long brisk walks every day – rain or shine – and breath deep as you go. And finally, sleep more than you’ve ever imagined you could. Make 8 hours your new minimum! Your skin will love you for it.
Finally, before bedtime, treat yourself to another facial cleansing and slather on the rich night cream with Retin-A to nourish and restore your skin while you sleep. We are happy to recommend the best products for you! Make these simple tips part of your new routine.
