How to Look & Feel Good in Quarantine
If there was ever a time to be kind to yourself, it's now.
We are without a doubt currently living in strange times. For the past 3 weeks, we have been asked to partake in social distancing and quarantine in our homes. With stay-at-home orders in place, only essential businesses remain in operation, leaving many people staying inside. Staying home all day can easily disrupt our sense of time, and before you know it, you have important self-care routines to catch up with. We can no longer run to the salon for nails, facials, eyebrow waxes, etc. We are now fully responsible for our own grooming. You may be busy working, taking care of the kids, etc. Establishing a new self-care routine is easier than you think. Stay with us as we reveal our top 5 personal care regimens that take under 15 minutes to complete.
#1. Color Therapy
Since nail salons are no longer an option, opt for a 5-minute mani at your desk. We all know the process. Remove, reapply, and dry. Easy! Here are the top 5 nail polish colors trending for 2020:
#2. Deep Condition Your Mane
Our hair is our crown and it needs to sparkle. Apply a deep conditioner to your ends while sending emails or on a conference call. Your hair will have less breakage, be soft to the touch, and extraordinary shine! We have listed a few of our favorites here at Muse below:
#3. Hydrate, hydrate, hydrate!
The past winter weather has left many of us with dry, cracked skin. Be sure to always use your favorite body butter or lotion (ideally right after you get out of the shower) to seal in moisture. We like these:
#3. And most importantly, don’t forget to hydrate from the inside!
If you are unsure about how much water you should be drinking each day, stick to the 8x8 rule. Eight 8-ounce glasses every day which is equal to 2 liters or half a gallon = 2000 ml = 67.63 oz. Bleeeh! That’s a lot of math. Here are our top picks that you can find at just about any local retailer:
#4. Show Me Your Teeth
Your face and teeth are vital in not only looking healthy but staying healthy. There are a ton of over the counter OTC(over the counter) products that you can buy without having to see a professional. Try these products for a brighter smile:
If whitening strips aren't your thing, then opt for a toothpaste that not only cleanses but whitens as well. This Colgate Whitening Toothpaste was voted #1 by Good Housekeeping for the best teeth whitening toothpaste. Please see below:
#5. It's All About The Face
Are you taking good care of your skin? If not, then it's time to start! It's been proven that most women feel better about themselves when they believe their skin looks good. This is why it's so important to take time out of your day to focus on your face. Applying a facemask 2-3 times per week can help boost self-esteem. Because like we said before, when you look good you feel good!
These days there is a face mask for everything. With so many new products available, it can be hard to find the best options. Here are a few of our favorite products for different types of skin issues including, dry skin, oily skin, adult acne, & more.
For Dry Skin
For Puffy Eyes
For Stress Relief
Ready, Set, Relax...
We said it once and we'll say it again. Be kind to yourself during this time! Staying indoors for days can leave us feeling blah. But hopefully, these tips will leave you motivated and excited to work on you. Do you have any self-care recommendations? If so, please leave a comment or email us at email@example.com. Happy social distancing! XO
