April 13, 2020

It’s the little things that matter the most. Whether it’s daring to be brave and finally giving that bold lip colour hiding in your drawer a shot or having happy tips by opting for a fun nail colour or lifting your mood up by spritzing a fresh and subtle scent. These beauty pick me ups will have you feeling better and instantly lift your mood up during social distancing.

1 - Make body moisturising a ritual

When it comes to moisturising we give our face and hands a lot more attention than our body. Now that we are housebound and have all the time to take good care of ourselves, pamper yourself by moisturising your body. You can opt for body lotion or a body oil. Body lotions and oils are available in different flavours and scents. Body oils are more effective in helping us relax and release stress.

2 - Try a new fragrance

A surefire way to ignite the senses, perfumes have the power to help us feel a little less stressed. Roll onto pulse points for the ultimate quick fix.

3 - Master the art of make-up

Now is the time to master that perfect winged liner or blending your make-up like a pro. Let your inner Lisa Eldridge out and practice, practice, practice. Who knows your make-up look might soon be trending on Instagram.

4 - Master the manicure

Isolation means bringing your nail salon to your home. Give your neglected tips the attention they deserve. Confused where to start? Check out tutorials online and show your nails some love. Depending on your mood and preference pick a colour and get painting.

5 - Face masks and facials

Your social distancing days will prove that expensive products or salons are not the only way to de-puff and glow. Skim through your kitchen cabinets and fridge and you’ll find hidden gems which work wonders on your skin. For step by step instructions go online and watch tutorials, it will be worth it.

6 - Use a scent diffuser for your room

As we spend all day and night at home these days, diffusers should be your new best friend! Set a good work-from-home vibe by using an aromatic fragrance. You can also use room sprays which act as perfumes for your room. Choose a scent of your choices from the array of scents available easily.

7 - Light a candle

The flicker of the right flame can be as meditative as taking deep breaths. Look for scented candles to get your fix while creating a soothing environment in your home. Opt for light and subtle scents to help you relax and feel good instantly while you snuggle in your bed or enjoy your meal.
