While we are all following lockdown Protocols and sitting inside our homes working towards breaking the Covid transmission chain, most women are missing their essential beauty routines. Keeping that in mind, we are going to look at this problem in detail and also propose some DIY natural beauty hacks for lockdown days that could be prepared using bare minimum ingredients.
With the whole lockdown situation, the entire family is stuck at home for what feels like forever. While we do have some Covidiots, who are enjoying walks, exercises and gathering socially thereby fulfilling their aim to become human bombs, most of us are working hard to make sure everything runs smoothly at home while still being locked down.
Since we are living in four walls, we land up losing interest in following routines which earlier used to define our lives. A typical excuse during this time is that most of us have too much on our plates and by the end of the day, we hardly have any energy left (especially mothers who have so much more on their plates now). Who has the time to think or follow a routine, who is keeping track anyways but here comes the TRUTH!
Following a routine is a great way to stay positive and also keep some semblance of control in your life. Taking care of our body and mind is very important to stay healthy, especially during this time. When you look good, you feel good so following your beauty routine is of utmost importance.
Another thing that comes to our mind is that we might not have products that suit our skin or body. And obviously these don’t come under essential services which means you can’t order them online so this is the best time to introduce a few DIY beauty hacks for lockdown days. These might come handy later as well as you should always be against chemicals touching your body. Read about harmful chemicals in your beauty products
