How to maintain your beauty routine during lockdown

As we enter into the second national lockdown, hairdressers and beauty salons have once again been forced to close. However, that doesn’t mean you have to let your beauty regime slip.

There are lots of ways you can maintain your beauty routine during lockdown. Here, you’ll discover some of the best tips to look your best during lockdown.

Taking care of your hair

While you might not be able to achieve that fresh out of the salon look, there are things you can do to take care of your hair during lockdown.

Start by ensuring your shampoo and conditioner are sulphate-free. This will help to keep the hair shiny and healthy. If you have coloured hair, you can make the colour last longer by using a toning gloss. Also, keep it moisturised with a hair mask throughout the winter months.

These simple tips can help you to maintain luscious locks until the hairdressers re-open.

Make time for pamper sessions

Being stuck indoors can really dampen the mood. So, to help maintain your beauty regime and stay happier, it’s recommended you make time for pamper sessions.

You can pamper yourself from head to toe, using face masks, lotions and foot soaks for example. You could also invest in professional style nail equipment like acrylic powder to give yourself the ultimate manicure. By taking care of yourself, you’ll look and feel a lot better.

Keep your skin hydrated

Your skin might also suffer due to being stuck indoors. This is because it needs Vitamin D to stay healthy. The main source of Vitamin D is sunlight, which means you’re going to be missing out on a lot of it for the next month.

You can keep your skin looking fresher by keeping it hydrated. This includes moisturising, as well as drinking plenty of water. Top up your Vitamin D levels by investing in a good quality supplement too. The more hydrated the skin is, the healthier it will look.

Stay active

During lockdown, it’s going to be a lot easier to slack off on your exercise routine. However, if you don’t stay active your appearance is going to suffer. You’ll also find it can lead to mental health issues.

Aim to get at least 30 minutes exercise each day. You can stay active through workout videos, gardening, cleaning and going for short walks. When you stay active, you’ll notice your skin glows and you look generally healthier and happier.

These are some of the best ways to maintain your beauty routine during lockdown. It might be a little more challenging, but the above tips can help you to ensure you look your best until the beauty industry re-opens.
