Your skin always reflects what’s going on in your world: stress-inducing energy can trigger inflamed and red skin, the weight of duties could be a cause of clogged pores, a busy social calendar often leads to dryness, while compassion and sensitivity might translate to overly reactive skin.
These days are extremely stressful to everyone but we all can use our isolation learning, actually, how to avoid stress. Just think about this rare opportunity: we can listen to ourselves, our real needs, and we can help ourselves. In spite of all new problems that corona-virus has brought to us, we can and should to stay in tune with needs of our skin and mentality.
If you have clogged pores, use beauty products with bamboo charcoal like our natural soap “Bamboo Forest” or a whipped sugar scrub. A gentle at-home detox procedure like a clay mask application will help your skin and your mood.
Does your skin feel extremely dry? Moisturize at least once a day. Use rich creams that contain shea and cocoa butters, glycerin or silicones, and squalane in facial products – these ingredients keep skin firm. Drink often – it will help you to hydrate your body and stay resistant to a virus.
I know, you are now providing a lot of support to your family, friends and, if you are an essential worker, – to your community. You relate to the world at large and it can be (and IS) very exhausting. Emotional tiredness often leads to very sensitive skin.
Simplify your skincare routine to fewer steps and avoid strong fragrances, abrasive cleansers, and harsh ingredients. Use our slightly scented botanical soap with extracts of lavender, roses, or aloe. Rich with vitamins oils of avocado, olive and castor will less likely to cause chaos, and more likely to reveal you from stress.
Find your balance through taking care of your skin, and enjoy your glowing look.
