It’s very important to take care of your skin even though you may be quarantined in your home. It can actually be a place where you unwind, de-stress, and even get some deep breaths in for the day. Although my skincare routine has suffered during quarantine, since the level of stress has risen a bit, I have started upping my product use for at-home care.
One of the things I have been doing regularly is masks and light peeling. I have very sensitive skin. I try to be as gentle as I can to my skin. Tatcha’s Violet radiance mask is great right before you start your day. It brightens while giving you a bit of vitamin C and it’s for all skin types. I put this on once a week, twice a week if my skin really needs that jolt. Then I lie down on my bed, pull my sheets over me, start some calm music, and wait for 15 minutes for the mask to do its magic.
As for light peeling, I turn to my 1% retinol at night, see what I mean by gentle. I use Vivier Retinol 1% night complex. I use this twice a week and it really cleans out a light layer of skin to reveal a brighter, clearer complexion. It’s highly recommended for my delicate skin. Another good gentle peel is from Goop Beauty called the Goop Glow. It is a very gentle formulation of 5% Glycolic acid. I do this once a week at bedtime. (Use these products a couple of days apart, never on the same day).
Lastly, to put the moisture back into my skin, I can’t get enough of Khalm’s Overnight Oil Elixir. It is the most decadent oil to soothe the skin and bring back your luminosity. The elixir is made of Khalm’s exclusive Oud Essential Oil, Prickly Pear (one of the most expensive & potent natural ingredients you can put on your skin) but also vitamin C extracts (I can’t get enough of this stuff). The aroma will pull you into another world. It has been transformational for my skin.
Well, I hope this gives you some insight into the products I use while I have been in quarantine. I hope this routine gives you a wellness boost.
