Self-care is important during this outbreak, skin care too!

skincare routine during pandemic

It has been two weeks since the tightened measures have been implemented in Singapore and the efforts are working. As reported by PM Lee on May 31, relaxation of measures might be possible on June 13.

Although it is still too early to predict how the situation will unfold, people are still advised to stay at home as much as possible, work from home and only go out when necessary. While staying at home, taking care of not only your physical health but also mental health is very important.

Since the very first circus breaker back in 2020, Google searches for “self-care routine” skyrocketed to 250% and queries on skincare routine at home also witnessed tremendous growth.

Self-Care is now trending

Social distancing measures and different quarantine periods have greatly impacted our lives. A recent study found that staying home for too long affects not only our physical health but also our mental health.

Many of us are unable to go to the gym or visit the outdoor park and that makes us less active, which is not good for our overall health. In addition, other people are facing problems with increased stress disorders, mental illnesses such as depression or emotional disorders. Never before like at this moment, we humans are aware of self-care like in the middle of this pandemic!

Self-care is now trending worldwide as it is important to keep yourself healthy and positive. Only when your body and mind are stable can you focus on taking care of those around you! In another report, many people agreed that they had increased their self-awareness about how to keep themselves healthy. Not only that, but 69% of the respondents also agree about keeping mental health in balance as well as having to pay attention to the daily diet.

Skincare is a part of the rising self-care trend

Don’t forget your skin during this pandemic! Since the circuit breaker took place up to now, Singaporeans have used to wearing masks and not going out unnecessarily. This sometimes makes us “ignore” skin care because we simply have limited communication with the outside world.

Honestly, taking care of your skin is just as important as taking care of your general health. Skin is the first line of defense against harmful environmental factors. So a healthy skin can help you fight potential pathogens, strengthen the immune system and boost your self-confidence.

However, in this time, when we can no longer go to beauty care centers like before, applying a proper skincare routine at home will save your skin from suffering from acne, wrinkles and potentially hyperpigmentations.

The basic skin care routine at home that you can try

A basic skin care routine at home will include the following steps:

  1.  Cleanse: this is the first and the most important step of the routine. Good skin starts from clean skin! Remember to select a proper cleanser for your skin to keep it moist and fresh. For some people, considering applying double-cleansing would enhance the effectiveness of the cleansing.
    For example: if you have sensitive skin, Physiodermie Hydrating Milk SL is a perfect choice for you
  2. Tone: Using a toner is critical during your skin care routine at home as it restores the skin natural’s pH level. More than that, toners can help to add a level of protection to your skin after cleansing as it tightens the pores and removes any leftover dirt.
  3. Serum: Serums are highly concentrated products that cater to address specific problems on the skin. For example, a Vitamin C serum can quickly provide an antioxidants effect to the skin which will boost the skin radiance. Because of its high concentration of active ingredients, serums need to be applied as close as possible to the skin. That’s why the best step to use serum is after the toner.
  4. Moisturize: This is a must in all skin care routines at home. Providing sufficient moisture to the skin allows it to regenerate, refresh and glow.
  5. Sun Protection: remember to use sunscreen if you ever go out. Using one with enough UV protection as well as Blue light protection helps you to prevent pre-aging.
