Staying at home doesn’t have to mean letting yourself go. In fact, self-care should be at the top of your priority list during times of isolation. With so much going on in the world, finding moments to pamper ourselves can keep us sane, which is a good way to maintain our mental health, too. Remember, gorgeous: SELF LOVE ISN’T SELFISH. That’s why in this blog post I’m sharing my top beauty and lash care tips for quarantine.
Stick to your AM and PM Beauty Routine
Maintaining a routine in times of quarantine is so important. It helps us maintain some level of normalcy, which helps us stay clear and focused. But whether or not you’re in quarantine, sticking to a good morning and evening beauty routine is essential to maintaining healthy hair, skin and lashes. I wrote a whole blog post on creating an all-natural beauty routine, while my post about getting perfect natural lashes offers important lash care tips for your AM and PM regimen.
Avoid Styling and Heat
Now is the time to give your locks a well-deserved break from styling, coloring and heat. With nowhere to go, you can allow your hair to dry naturally. There’s also more time for hair masks and at-home treatments to rehydrate and restore your hair.
Bonus tip: The same goes for your lashes! Now is the time to practice proper lash care and avoid styling with heat.
Choose Your Scent Wisely
Whether you’re working from home, getting dressed and ready in the morning will help you mentally prepare for a productive day. And just like you did in your pre-quarantine morning routine, don’t forget to spritz on a little perfume. Opt for perfumes with calming, grounding scents such as lavender and sandalwood.
Apply SPF Every Day
You may be spending most of your time indoors, but that doesn’t mean you’re safe from harmful UV rays. UVA rays may not cause immediate visible damage (unlike UVB rays that cause sunburn), but they are still able to penetrate through clouds and glass. UVA rays are the primary cause of visible aging, so don’t forget to lather on SPF every morning whether the sun’s out or not!
Lash Care: Give Your Lashes a Break
Your lashes need love all year round, but now is the perfect time to give them a break from harmful beauty habits. Put your lash fill on hold, put the mascara away, and focus on proper lash care. This way, you can restore dry, brittle lashes and finally achieve a dramatic lash look naturally. Be sure to use an all-natural eyelash serum like EVEDARE Eyelash Serum to help your lashes grow longer, stronger and thicker.
