Why am I getting breakouts and spots and why is my skin looking dull when I’m not rushing around like I used to?
The worry and stress of being in lockdown may very well create breakouts and skin irritations. When your body is continuously under too much pressure or stress, cortisol levels can rise resulting in different symptoms including spots and tiredness.
This is the ideal time for adults and teens to get on top of your skincare routine, making your skin look and feel healthy and bright. Start and end your day with your skincare routine, even if you have been in your pjs all day. It will make a difference and commitment is key. Many of the botanical ingredients in our skincare have antibacterial and antiseptic properties which can help reduce inflammation and soreness. They are also full of vitamins and minerals that clean and clear the skin, bring a more even skin-tone, soothe and calm whilst nourishing and leaving your skin feeling soft and bright.
Routines have seriously changed and a few adjustments could help make a difference to your skin and well-being. ‘Treating yourself’ and sugary snacks won’t help with breakouts or the waistband! Instead opt for leafy green vegetables, wholegrains, oranges and mangos which are all in season. Full of vitamins C, D, zinc and antioxidants, they can boost your immune system and aid your digestive system. Nuts are a great alternative to snack on as they provide omegas and essential fats that help to soften and nourish our skin tone.
More time is spent indoors and technology is playing a bigger part in our lives than before. Redress the balance and try to exercise and take time outside in the sun, breathing in the fresh air, making you feel energised.
Rest your mind and body, with a good night’s sleep and leave technology and worries behind. Your skin is busy regenerating and healing itself whilst you sleep, so this time is very important.
Above all, be kind to yourself. Good day? Bad day? – You have to go with it. Look forward. Tomorrow dawns a new day.
