Spending the last year under lockdowns and restrictions has meant that we've been forced to slow down and spend more time at home. For some of us, this has meant finding new ways to take control of our routines and find small silver linings of self care.
Whether that means spending more days makeup free and feeling more confident in your own skin, or developing your very own weekly self care Sunday complete with your favourite face mask and a nice warm bath...have you found any self care silver linings in lockdown that you're going to continue when it ends?
Here are some of our team’s lockdown keepsakes!
“I personally have done a lot more facial yoga/ gua sha/ jade roller and made a point to practice every day! As I have had to get up slightly later (with no school runs!), I made sure to do my whole routine in bed before getting up which is a really nice and relaxing way of starting the day. Schools are back in France and I have carried on doing the same routine before getting up, even with the school runs. Love it!”
Why not try using a jade roller after applying our Hyaluronic Serum 200? Perfect for giving your skin a morning boost of long lasting hydration.
“During lockdown, I stopped using makeup, and although before I was not confident with myself without makeup, I realized that it was fine and okay to be without it as well. I learned that "more" is not necessarily better, but instead embraced my skin and face just as it is, and became happy with it”
Use our Deep Clean Micellar Water to remove your make up and embrace your skin just like Lina!
“I have been addicted to my Rose quartz roller, I use miracle oil and roll on my face for a little break.”
Our Miracle Facial Oil contains natural retinolfrom Organic Rosehip and antioxidants from Organic Argan oil to regenerate and revitalise your skin.
“Over the past year I have stopped using mountains of serums and creams every day and have learned that using a good quality cleanser, toner, serum, and moisturiser are just what my skin needs. I take vitamins as well as eating healthier which has had such a big impact on my skin. I went from having dry, irritated and red skin because of my diet and extensive use of the wrong products for my skin, to finding my favourite 3 products and feeling so confident without makeup in my skin. SPF Moisturizers are a fave of mine now.”
Strip your routine back to basics with our Mini Routine Tester Bundle, featuring five travel sized products designed to care for your skin and hair in 5 simple steps.
“I've really taken advantage of the shorter commute, and take more time over my skincare routine. In the morning I like to do facial massage or Gua sha to perk and sculpt my skin up for a day of zoom calls, especially as I tend to go make-up free at home. If I'm feeling super tired or a bit puffy from too many lockdown snacks/wine I'll pop my gua sha in the freezer for 10 mins before using it. Works better than a shot of espresso!
In the evening I'll do the opposite and warm the gua sha up in a bowl of hot water. The heat really helps to relax the muscles and release any tension, plus it feels amazing (and as close to an at home spa treatment as you can get these days).”
Pair your facial massage or Gua Sha with our Bio-Retinol + C Booster and give your skin an instant brightening boost between zoom calls!
“My lockdown skin keepsake is my newfound love of facemists. Before lockdown I considered this a non-essential luxury item in my skincare routine, but now I couldn't be without one. My Daily Defence Moisture Mist is perfect for spritzing throughout the day to calm and refresh my sensitive skin, and as we begin to enjoy spending more time with friends and family I have been loving using it to set my makeup and refresh throughout the day.”
Keep your Daily Defence Moisture Mist in the fridge for a cooling spritz of hydration throughout the day!
“Over the past year or so I've really enjoyed experimenting with my skincare routine, I've built more confidence in mixing my products together, such as adding some Bio Retinol + C Booster into my Daily Renew Face Cream or mixing it with my Hyaluronic Serum 200. It's made my skin feel much more radiant!”
Our Daily Renew Facial Cream is the perfect base for your skincare cocktail, just add a few drops of your favourite oil or serum and become a skin scientist like Sarah.
