Whenever you ask someone how are they doing these days, they tell you that they are BORED. Getting bored is that one thing that everyone has become pro at. If you have also seen all the shows on Netflix, read all the books available and listened to all your favorite music, now is the time to work on your skin and beauty. While staying at home, there are following BEAUTY TASKS that you can perform.
a) Try a different makeup look
Instagram and YouTube are filled with a lot of artists who actually offer different kinds of makeup looks to the viewers. During the regular day to day routine, it is difficult for the viewers to follow the step-by-step beauty looks shown by these artists. However, now that you have a lot of time in hand, you can try these new makeup looks. Case in point: try the glitter eyeliner and the rainbow eye-shadow look that you have been drooling on, but never got a chance to try.
b) Experiment with new masks
There are varied kinds of beauty masks available in the market, and trying them all might not have been easy for you. However, if you do not have any masks available, you can make new ones at home yourself. There are a lot of recipes available on the internet, and following them you can make your masks yourself. For them to be useful, make sure that you create a mask keeping in mind the type of your skin, as the dry and oily skins have different requirements.
c) Clean the beauty bag
The beauty bag that is loaded with all your beauty items is the most used bag that you have. Constant usage can lead to it becoming dirty and messy. Now that you have a lot of time in hand, you can clean the bag well. Take out all the expired items out of the bag and throw them away. Old beauty products can affect the skin badly. Ensure to replace them with new ones while you are free and have nothing better to do.
d) Make a smoothie
Smoothies are a good way to give your skin hydration and moisture. They are not only delicious but also provide great benefits to the users. Adding maca and other energizing products in smoothies is a way to make a delicious smoothie. An energy boosting smoothie will aid you in having an energy filled day.
e) Massage your hair with some oil:
Despite knowing that oiling the hair and massaging it well with a moisturizing oil will aid the hair well. However, the day to day activities and a busy lifestyle never really give the time to massage the hair well. Now, during this quarantine period, it is a good chance to give your hair an oil massage that it has been deprived of for so long.
Conditioning the hair and moisturizing the roots with a good quality oil is what you need to do. Once you massage the hair well, you should wrap it with a hot towel. This will add more moisture to all the strands of the hair. Along with this, as this as you will be staying at home now, it is time to keep all the hair straightening tools away. Give your hair a chance to breath again, and it will give you healthy strands of hair once the self-isolation period is over.
f) A facial
Cleansing your skin off all the pollution it has accumulated over some time can now be removed by giving yourself a facial at home. Now, it is not required to go to salon to give a facial to yourself. This can be done at home quite easily. Even if you do not have the products from markets, you can do that from all the items that are available at home. The steps include deep cleansing the face, applying a face mask, exfoliating the skin, a peel off mask and a moisturizer. Do it once a week, and you will be able to see a great change in the quality of your skin.
As you are free, pampering your skin through a home facial is a good idea to go for.
g) Go for a few DIY beauty products
Making beauty products at home is really easy. All you need to do is to use some ingredients from your kitchen, and mix them as required. For black lips, you can mix some sugar and almond oil and scrub your lips daily. Doing this will give you moisturized and red lips. If you have open pores, you need to apply milk combined with some honey on your face. Doing it for a few times will close your pores.
h) Give yourself a manicure and pedicure:
Manicures and Pedicures do not need a visit to the salon. This can easily be done at home, using those products that you already have in the bathroom and the kitchen. Fill your bucket to half with hot water, add some apple cider vinegar to it along with some shampoo, and put your hands and feet in it. Let them stay there for around fifteen minuets.
After that, you need to use a good quality cleanser to clean and scrub off the dead skin layer from your feet as well as the hands. Bleach them with either a home made bleach or the one bought from the market. Rinse them well, and moisture them well. This will aid you in giving cleaner and softer hands and feet.
Doing this once a week will give you moisturized, clean and exfoliated arms and feet, bringing a good change in your hygiene.
