Lady with glowing skin

Self-isolation means more self-care

If you’re reading this, you’re probably stuck at home, because of the current context of Coronavirus (A.K.A Covid-19). You spend your days binge-watching boring series on Netflix and scrolling on Instagram, and reading posts on Reddit. How frustrating, right? Look in the mirror: is your skin starting to look dull and are your brows looking bushy as ever?

Maybe you should start focussing on yourself! I mean, just watching series is cool, but we all need more productive activities! During this time of home-jailing, we should grab the opportunity to make better versions of ourselves. This way, when this catastrophe goes away, we’ll be more ready to face the world!

A better version of oneself requires flawless skin, yes dear. I mean, it’s great to be successful, but it’s even better when you can see it. Pretty skin means healthy skin.

Okay. Just because no one can see you apart from your cat, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t wash your face twice a day. Pick a gentle face cleanser and start making bubbles!

Glossier Milky Jelly cleanser

Glossier Milky Jelly Cleanser (€16)

My favorite cleanser ever. I’ve been using it for a year now and haven’t found anything this great since. At first, you’ll really wonder if this thing is going to clean anything, because of its super soft texture and the absence of foam. But trust me, if you’re looking for a cleanser that won’t dry out your skin, this is your sidekick.

REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic

REN Ready Steady Glow Daily AHA Tonic (€32)

Looking for a texture-smoothing toner that won’t burn your skin? REN’s got your back! This AHA Tonic gives you glow, almost instantly. The acids contained in it are gentle enough not to be too abrasive, but they still provide an efficient exfoliation. Plus, the citrusy smell is awesome in the morning!

Saturday Skin Quench Intense Hydration Mask

Saturday Skin Quench Intense Hydration Mask (5 Masks – €28)

Where do I start with this one? I honestly cannot rave enough about this sheet mask. I’d just thrown it in my basket to reach a minimum amount for gifts on Cult Beauty (don’t judge me!) and was not super motivated to try it out at first. But then I ran out of sheet masks, so I opened this one and… Magic happened. Like, this mask deserves its name. It QUENCHES the hell outta your skin! After using it, my face was so plump and fresh! I couldn’t believe it!

Good Molecules Overnight Exfoliating Treatment

Good Molecules Overnight Exfoliating Treatment (€5,60)

This serum is not only the cheapest you can find, but it’s the most powerful I’ve ever had.
Good Molecules is one of those brands that I have a special love for. Pretty much like The Ordinary (but with a scientific feel to it), this brand offers high-efficiency skincare products for a very affordable price. What I love about this overnight treatment is that when I wake up in the morning, my skin always looks smoother and more refine. Pretty magic if you ask me.

Work out!

You might hate me for this one, but you need to work out too! Sweating is actually a great thing to unclog pores – but I guess I’m not teaching you anything new here. It’s also a great way to avoid gaining weight, since it’s pretty much the only physical activity you’d be getting in these few weeks. I strongly suggest following the tutorial below by Holly Dolke, her channel has really helped me out with home workouts!

Stay safe! (and home)
