Thyme Organic promotes practising self-care in self-isolation. Social distancing has been the perfect excuse for us to take some time for ourselves, spoil our skin with a new daily skincare routine and give it that little bit of extra attention that it deserves. Thyme Organic has come up with a few suggestions on how you can help your skin look healthier than ever. Be Badass and Beautiful for yourself (since we can’t step out of our homes).
BE REGULAR WITH YOUR SKINCARE ROUTINE
You may not be wearing as much makeup (if any at all), but it’s still important to cleanse your skin and maintain a thorough nighttime skincare routine. We know it can be tempting to jump straight into bed, but we promise the results will be worth the extra 2 minutes. Go for Activated Charcoal Face Mask that’s accumulated over the day will help to unclog pores — you’ll thank yourself in the long run. Don’t miss out on Triple Correction Under Eye Serum which will be essential if you spend hours working on computer screens.
FOCUS ON MOISTURIZATION
It’s crucial to ensure you keep your skin moisturized and hydrated during self-isolation. Finding your perfect moisturizer is essential to keep skin nourished and looking plump and fresh. We recommend the Deep Nourishing and Hydrating Lotion. A fast-absorbing formula that naturally helps increase skin’s ability to retain moisture. We recommend using this as a daily moisturizer, apply after you’ve washed, and cleansed your skin as part of your morning skincare routine.
FACE EXFOLIATION TWICE/THRICE A WEEK
Exfoliation and scrubbing will help shed the dead cells and speed up healing. The most effective exfoliator for managing hyperpigmentation is the DeTan Face Scrub. They penetrate more deeply into the skin than physical exfoliators and do not damage your skin.
We should probably have put this at number 1 as it’s a tried and tested method to get clear skin. Not only is water essential to life, but it clears out toxins that are harmful to the body. So even if you can’t survive the day without your morning latte, just make sure you’re sipping water consistently throughout the day. The recommended amount is 2 litres which are easily achievable if you refill a sports bottle a few times.
GET SUFFICIENT SLEEP
It may sound simple but getting the recommended 7–8 hours of sleep a night is vital for good skin health. When you’re sleep-deprived, your body produces more of the stress hormone cortisol, which can lead to increased stress and inflammation in the body and skin, triggering breakouts. We’ll take any excuse for an early night.
Now that you know all about the things that you should follow for great skin. Staying at home and stressing over work will certainly be a task. But stay strong, give yourself some time and believe in yourself.
