Lockdown skin issues and cure
We are all in this together –We did this before, and we can do it again!!
Let us make the most out of it. If you have not done something because of the lack of time, now you may have the time to start.
Skin changes when the environment or our daily routine changes. As we have more time inside, it impacts on skin as well. There are multiple reasons why this change is hitting our skin hard. Here are few key ones:
To keep the stress and anxiety away implementing some relaxing techniques such as deep breathing, walks, spend time with kids, talk to friends or relatives.
To feel good, dress up yourself every day, bring some energy and enjoy the each and every moment. Set proper skincare routine with cleansing morning and evening, exfoliate the full body once a week, moisturise after cleansing.
To protect the skin from this light, apply serums or moisturisers which are rich in antioxidants. These neutralise the damaging effects of free radicals from UV and visible light, as well as from pollution.
4) Use of mask & hand sanitisers: - The increased use of face masks, hand sanitisers and rigorous hand washing techniques have also created conditions and exposed our skin to products it is just not used to.
Avoid synthetic materials in masks. Rather, opt for natural fibres, such as cotton, and remember to wash your mask with every use or use of a disposable mask is a good option. Do moisturise your hands to avoid frequent dryness.
Covid-19 has changed everyday lives and we all are still finding the ways to adapt these changes. Let us make health our priority and save our skin from everyday changes.
