2020 is that year which will go down in infamy. It started off with such hope, such promise, the beginning of a new era and three months later it was the plot of the Contagion movie.
We adjusted to our new normal thinking it was just a phase; however, the pandemic raged on, people lost their jobs, loved ones and many lost their minds; although a few of us definitely gained a few pounds (the COVID 19).
Amidst the continued fight for the basic human right to live, lies from the oval office and the war on Maskne, we strived to survive in anyway we can. Whether it was hiding from our family/kids with a bottle of fermented/ distilled juice or becoming the next Top Home Chef. Our lives were disrupted and routines discarded for lounge wear and Zoom Calls.
As we side-eye 2021 and all that it has to offer, let's put in practice the following tips:
Skincare Survival Guide for 2021
Establish a Skincare Routine
Our skin is easy to neglect these days and it’s very important to be intentional about our skincare routine especially those who work remotely. Establishing a morning and evening routine will provide structure to your day and keep you skin healthy and glowing!
It’s winter and our skin is affected by the dry frigid air. Exfoliate 2-3 times a week and don’t forget to shave from time to time, it’ll prepare your skin to receive and absorb your moisturizer better.
Every single day. Once or twice a day. Buy a humidifier to add moisture to your air. Drink half your body weight in water to moisturize your insides too!
Oh! Please wear Sunscreen. Daily.
Move! Stretch! Run! Walk! Jump rope ! Do anything to stimulate blood flow, make you sweat and increase your endorphins!
Our body needs rest to recharge all our systems including our skin.
Pray and meditate, carve out time for yourself, It's okay to be Selfish! 2020 has taught me that life is a blessing, kindness isn’t only reserved for others you must be kind to yourself and self-care is a necessity.
Thank you for all the support and love you shown Angella Irving!
