Spending so much time indoors during the past month has gotten a few of us to be more forgiving over our personal daily standards of aesthetics, whether it is scrimping on our skincare routine or even skipping it entirely. While your skin might be at its best baby-like state with less exposure to free radicals and pollution, this is the best time to harness and lock in the hydration and treat yourself to a little mini spa in between your video conferencing meetings.

Here are a few tips for your daily self-love routine, plus the best beauty and personal care products you can order from Lazada’s Beauty by LazMall while on quarantine:

1. SPF Should Still be Your Best Friend
Yes, you still need to apply sunscreen even when staying indoors as our skin is still exposed to harmful UVB and UVA rays of the sun. It is equally important to protect our lips too and why not add a little pop of color to your face in preparation for your virtual meetings. Who knows? Putting on your favorite lip screen might even provide you a much-needed sense of normalcy.

2. Cleanse Daily and Exfoliate Every Other Day
Even with little to no exposure to the sun, and assuming you put on your sunscreen every day as you should, it’s important to prep your face first thing in the morning through a good cleanse and strip all the sunscreen off before going to bed to avoid clogging your pores. Exfoliating is key too! Avoid breakouts and rejuvenate your skin while getting rid of all the unwanted dead skin cells keeping your glow from shining through.

3. Conditioning Your Hair Is Essential too
The climate In Manila poises us to shampoo our hair every day, sometimes more often than we should. Non-conditioner users often ask what’s so important about it and how often it should be done. The answer is simple: every time you shampoo, you should condition too. Conditioners primarily allow healthy hair growth, smoothens and detangles hair while reducing breakage and split ends. If you’re an avid user of styling products, now would be the perfect time for your hair to recover and get back that healthy mane.

Whether you’re beginning to explore the best body wash for your skin type or you’re trying to address various skin concerns, understand what your body needs and don’t forget to enjoy and relax while cleansing your body.

5. Keep Your Skin Hydrated with Ample Moisture and Protection
After stepping out of the shower, lock in all that moisture to keep your skin hydrated, soft and supple. Snail White offers their Body Booster lotion with SPF30/PA+++ that you can use during the day to protect your skin.

Putting a little makeup on weekdays to get that glam on for virtual meetings can definitely reduce anxiety and be a perk for your co-workers to discuss more engaging topics beyond the current situation. Plus, getting a healthy dose of Vitamin D by stepping outdoors for a while at least three times a week can do your skin favors and step up your beauty routine while on lockdown too!
