With COVID-19 pandemic at our footsteps, the world seems to have come to an abrupt halt. Even though it’s scary, the best thing for all of us is to stay indoors, follow the lockdown and protect ourselves from the transmission.
With the lockdown in effect, there’s a lot of free time at hand and this time can be best utilized for numerous things – including detoxifying the mind and the body. Since everyone is staying indoors, this lockdown is the perfect window to pamper your skin in ways that were previously not possible. Yes, there’s obvious protection from the harsh UV rays of the sun, dirt and pollution – and all this can be best used to give your skin the rejuvenation it needs.
Use this time to take care of your skin, which bears the brunt of all the stress. Pamper the skin with natural nourishers, keep it soft and smooth even while staying indoors.
Here’s how you can pamper your skin during this lockdown
Your body is made up of at least 60% water. It’s imperative to stay hydrated if you wish not just to pamper your skin, but your overall health too. Make sure to drink water at regular intervals as it helps flush out toxins accumulated inside your body. The lesser the toxins in your body, the better your skin would feel. One of the best things to do is to start your day by drinking a glass of lukewarm water. Add a dash of lemon juice and honey in it, and you will feel the difference throughout the day.
Let this be a part of your everyday routine. Furthermore, take the ‘one day at a time’ approach and welcome every morning with positivity. After all, this too shall pass.
Cleansing, Toning, Moisturising – the mantra is simple and easy to follow. Even when you are staying indoors, it’s essential to follow this three-step approach to skincare.
Wash your face every day with natural cleansers. Gently exfoliate your face with a face scrub to ward off the impurities. You can either use Mamaearth Charcoal Face Scrub or Mamaearth Ubtan Face Scrub.
After scrubbing, move on to a face wash depending on your skin type. Use amongst Mamaearth’s all-natural range of face washes like Ubtan Face Wash, Charcoal Face Wash, or Tea Tree Face Wash.
The next step is to use a face toner that helps tighten the pores, brightens the complexion naturally and boosts skin firmness. You can use Mamaearth Vitamin C Face Toner which is loaded with Vitamin C, Aloe Vera, Cucumber and Witch Hazel.
Lastly, moisturize your face with a day cream to keep it hydrated, soft, and smooth. For normal skin type, use Mamaearth Natural Radiance Day Cream and further enhance your flawless skin. If you have oily, acne-prone skin, it’s best to use Mamaearth Oil-Free Face Moisturizer.
Use a Face Mask
It’s best to know your skin problem before applying a face mask. However, it’s not a prerequisite in any way. You can still use a face mask to amplify your pristine skin further.

When taking care of your skin during the lockdown period, remember that consistency is the key. Apply the mask regularly to address the skin issues and achieve the desired results. The rule of thumb here is to apply the mask at least twice a week!
Moisturize Your Body
Don’t forget to take care of your body! With face care typically stealing the limelight, taking care of the rest of the body is as essential. Every day, post bathing, apply a light-weight body lotion to moisturize the skin intensively. Use a lotion, body butter or even a body yogurt to give your skin a soft, smooth, and healthy appearance. Apply and massage well, so that it deeply penetrates the skin, nourishes it from within, and helps the skin retain the moisture level.
Rejuvenate Face with a Night Cream or Serum
At night before hitting the bed, it’s time to follow the CTM routine again. However, instead of moisturizing, use a night face cream or a serum. After cleansing and toning, apply a night cream such as Mamaearth Overnight Repair Face Cream to hydrate, nourish and repair your skin overnight.
If you’ve dull skin, want to achieve a radiant look – Mamaearth Skin Illuminate Face Serum is your best bet to rock that skin tone!
Under Eye Skincare
The daily house chores have quadrupled after the lockdown. Under-eye skincare has become all the more necessary as the fatigue does wear out the skin. However, there are many ways to counter this – from DIYs to our beauty products. You can start by applying a sliced cucumber at night to relax and soothe the eyes. Before bed-time, dab Undereye Crème around the eyes to fight against dark circles, puffiness, eye bags, and wrinkles. Apply it to give your eyes lasting freshness for the next day and restorative benefits throughout the night.
Follow these skincare essentials not only during the lockdown but after that too.
Stay Positive and Stay Safe!
