It is quite important to drink water every hour even if you are not feeling thirsty. Throughout the day we tend to lose water from our body through urine and sweat. It is necessary to keep your body hydrated to maintain energy throughout the day. Water flushes out the toxic substances from our internal organs. Drinking an adequate amount of water every day helps reduce pimples and acne leaving soft and hydrated skin. It has many other benefits such as weight loss, maintaining blood pressure and much more.
Eat Healthy Foods!
Eating healthy is the first step in your pandemic skincare routine. Fruits are rich in antioxidants that help to protect the skin and maintain the elasticity of your skin. Make sure to include at least five portions of fruits a day. You can include fruits like orange, avocado, sweet potato in your diet that help to maintain an even skin tone. Vitamin C can be included in your diet as it helps to produce collagen for radiant skin. Vitamin C will also help improve your immune system against diseases. Other than fruits it is equally important to take greens as they are rich in antioxidants and several vitamins that are required for healthy skin. Following this on a regular basis, can not only improve your skin but also your health.
Homemade Face and Hair Masks!
At this point in time, sheet masks can be used for an instant glow but in case sheet masks are not available, DIY homemade facemasks can be a great alternative. Fruit facials can be done at home simply by crushing and mixing all the fruits that are available at home. This could definitely help you with a natural glow on your skin.
Moisturizer and Sunscreen!
Even if you do not have many products if you have moisturizer and sunscreen, it is more than enough for maintaining your skin. Whatever might be your skin type is, using a moisturizer is a must. It is better to choose a light moisturizer with no harsh chemicals in it. Instead of moisturizers, skin serums can also be used, they penetrate deep into your skin providing all its benefits. Similarly, even if you are not going in the sun it is advised to wear sunscreens every single day.
Other than these, try to maintain peace within your mind and always try to be happy carrying a positive mindset. Stress-free lifestyle is the real secret behind healthy skin. So try to include some smiles in the pandemic skincare routine every single day!
