Hydration Heros for when you are stuck at home

5 Pandemic Friendly Skincare Products

STAYING AT HOME TO QUARANTINE DURING A PANDEMIC CAN PRESENT SOME NEW CHALLENGES AND STRUGGLES FOR YOUR SKIN.

Besides the constant hand washing and sanitizing (I’ve never felt so germaphobic!), there’s also stress, recycled or central air to deal with. In my case, the creek next door has been dug up for construction and there is just so much dust I feel like I’m living in some old lady’s attic. 

Like I said, the struggle. 

I’ve noticed that my skin is definitely feeling more dehydrated, yet I’m getting stress breakouts.My lips are SO dry, and the dullness… oh God the dullness. So that’s fun.

Beyond my regular skincare routines, there are a few products though that have pulled their weight a little extra. Here are 5 quarantine heroes for when you’re stuck inside, and your skin needs a little extra TLC.

Chanel Les Beiges Water Fresh Tint

Chanel Les Beiges Water Fresh Tint

IT TOOK ME 7 MONTHS TO PURCHASE CHANEL LES BEIGES WATER FRESH TINT.

 ..because it was sold out every single time I tried to buy it. For SEVEN months!

Chanel is no stranger to beauty products that gain an insane cult following. Remember when you couldn’t find Soleil Tan de Chanel anywhere? Rouge Noir Nail Polish Anyone? How about Notorious blush which made contouring a thing before it was a thing; People were buying it on eBay for 4-5x times the retail price for years!

Initially, when I heard about Chanel Water Tint I wrote it off as one of those nothing bases. It seemingly had no coverage, was stupid expensive and even seemed a bit… gimmicky.

Clarins Instant LIght Lip Comfort Oil

Must Have Lip Product | Clarins Lip Comfort Oils

LIP GLOSS IS OFTEN SEEN AS PURELY COSMETIC, BUT THE CLARINS INSTANT LIGHT LIP COMFORT OIL IS ANYTHING BUT.

Given the name of this blog, you might have gathered that I’d likely always choose gloss over lipstick. But I am picky about my glosses (I mean, is anyone surprised by this?). I don’t want tacky, sticky or gummy gloss; I have long hair, and you know that trouble lip gloss brings with that!

I also suffer from perpetually dehydrated lips, regardless of how much water I chug a day. So that means I need lip balm in my life, but sometimes balm and gloss don’t play nice with each other. But what if I told you there was a super nourishing lip oil that offered the mirror shine of gloss, but the soothing comfort of a balm?

The best products to get glowing skin

5 Glow Enhancing Products For Natural Radiance

I DON’T KNOW ABOUT YOU ALL, THE WEIGHT OF THE WORLD HAS NOT BEEN KIND ON MY SKIN.

I have dry dull skin on a good day, but the stress of what’s going on in the world, paired with a toddler that’s gone nocturnal has been wreaking havoc on this face. Between dryness, breaking out, all makeup sinking into pores I didn’t know I had and texture on texture- well it’s been rough. 

I’ve been reaching for all the glow enhancing products I can get. I’m craving that radiance, that plumped up skin, that youthful glow that just doesn’t come easy to me. But here’s the thing, not all glow-getting products do it for me; I don’t want glitter, sparkle or for my makeup to feel and stay sticky all day.I want natural-looking dewy skin. 

I want glow, but it still needs to be wearable.

NowMi Pro Cleansing and Sonic Facial Device

NowMi Pro | The Two In One Sonic Cleansing and At Home Facial Device

I’ve been a bit addicted to trying beauty tech lately, and the NowMi Pro is my latest obsession.

When I was approached by NowMi to try their NowMi Pro Facial Skin Oxygenation Device, I was immediately intrigued by its dual usage. Not only is the NowMi Pro a daily sonic cleansing device, but it double downs as a weekly at-home vitamin C facial treatment. You all should know by now, just how much I love vitamin c in my skincare routine, so needless to say I was on board!
