The Coronavirus pandemic is wreaking havoc around the world, with the number of identified cases rising sharply with each passing day, which has forced governments to impose rigorous lockdown measures, including self-isolation at home for at least a couple of weeks. Any crisis that involves social distancing and staying at home ensures more downtime than usual – it means a change in your entire routine that can prove to be difficult at first. Combing through social media and watching TV can get boring after a while, so why not use this time to develop a healthy beauty routine for yourself?
Combating Self-isolation Via Meditation
It is normal to feel stressed and agitated when you are cooped up at home – it might seem like you are losing control. But it is important to stay focused and motivated, so why not use this time to relax and unwind? Meditate on a regular basis (best time is morning) as it helps to soothe frayed nerves, while inducing a feeling of tranquility. Our Beauty Meditation app is perfect for this purpose, which can be paired with daily skincare regimens. It not only takes good care of your skin, but is aimed at reducing stress too. With over 200 guided sessions, this app is just what you need to get through self-isolation.
Beauty And Self-Care Tips During Isolation
Drink Lots Of Water
Staying hydrated is a must when it comes to maintaining healthy and glowing skin. It flushes out toxins and other impurities from the skin. Not only does water keep your skin hydrated, this life-saving drink eventually affects every organ system of your body, right from the muscular to the digestive. Try the Water Break Meditation in the Beauty Meditation app to turn you water break into true self-care moment!
Even if you are maintaining social distance from others, it doesn’t mean you have to stop smiling. Reminding yourself to be happy and content is equally important. Take some time out from bingeing TV series or reading, to look at the mirror and smile at yourself. Even if it doesn’t sound very fulfilling at first, you will be astonished at how cheerful you feel after doing it regularly. Use the Mirror Meditation session from the app – get your family members involved in too, the more the merrier!
Stress and tension are the biggest enemies in today’s times, as they can impact both physical and mental health. Staying confined in your home lets you manage stress levels, say goodbye to tension, and actually relax without worrying about meeting deadlines at work. There are more than 200 meditation sessions, exercises to be done at home, ASMR (autonomous sensory meridian response) techniques, and calming music, incorporated into the app. Stress affects your skin, so the more relaxed you are, the healthier your skin becomes. You will sleep much better as anxiety and stress won’t be able to bother you anymore.
Create A Beauty Routine At Home
Just because you can’t run to the salon doesn’t mean you have to compromise on your beauty regimen. You can easily whip up face masks at home with household ingredients. Or else you can try organic, plant-based and cruelty-free products like the Respekt Sheet Mask – there is a specific meditation session that can be conducted while you apply this mask. You can opt for face mists too, like the Respekt Vita C Mist, which is great for moisturizing. Every product by Respekt contains natural ingredients, sans harsh chemicals, so you can rest assured it won’t have unwanted side effects later on.
Positive Thoughts Go A Long Way
Yes, things might not look that positive right now, especially when you see the number of infected cases (due to Coronavirus) rising with each passing day. But positive self-talk is necessary, so you can appreciate and remind yourself that though these are dark times, they will soon pass. The Beauty Meditation app contains sessions that aid in positive affirmations that boost confidence and determination.
Take Good Care Of Your Hair
Noticed a lot of hair fall? Have lots of split ends and frizz? Self-isolation is the apt time to give your hair some “tender loving care” by using products to combat hair fall, split ends, and other problems. Brushing your hair regularly is also vital – consult the Brushing Your Hair session in the app for more details.
Pay Attention To Your Body
A beauty routine doesn’t just involve taking care of your face, but other parts of your body as well. Treat yourself to a pedi with some bathing salts – soak your feet in bubbly luke warm water; it feels awesome. Follow up with a manicure – trim those nails and put on your favorite nail polish. In fact, why not get creative with quirky nail art? You neck also deserves to be taken care of – check the Caring For Your Neck session in the app.
These are tough times, and living in self-isolation is quite tedious and daunting, but follow these tips, stay focused, and you will emerge as a stronger and more self-reliant individual when the crisis ends.
