Now that you’re working remotely and self-isolating, have you let your normal beauty routines slip?
Good for you! Giving yourself a makeup break allows your skin some well-deserved rest. Your largest living organ, skin is an unsung hero that never stops working to replenish and heal itself.
However, be careful not to slack off too drastically. Here’s why:
Routines are comforting.
There are countless benefits to maintaining routines, even self-care rituals like applying makeup or skin care products. When life gets unpredictable, maintaining personal self-care routines helps you stay balanced.
Looking good improves your mindset.
Researchers at Northwestern University discovered that study subjects who wore lab coats demonstrated improved focus.* Now, we’re not suggesting that all of us go out and buy lab coats to boost our productivity. But it stands to reason that if we make the effort to “put ourselves together,” however that may look, we are more likely to feel better and more likely to have a better day. Ever notice how refreshed you feel after taking a shower? The bottom line here is that self-care is more important now than ever.
Aside from wearing makeup or lab coats, other examples of self-care include bathing every morning, wearing fresh clothes, eating healthy, exercising, keeping a tidy living environment and so on.
