Though we are all a bit nervous right now, we should stay at home and keep calm and take care of ourselves – as much as possible. Body care is one of essential things we should do, and I have some easy tips to keep your body cool!
Do Basic Body Care
Hot water and long showers or baths remove oils from your skin. Limit your bath or shower time, and use warm — rather than hot — water. Avoid strong soaps as they can strip oil from your skin. Instead, choose mild cleansers. Shave carefully. To protect and lubricate your skin, apply shaving cream, lotion or gel before shaving. For the closest shave, use a clean, sharp razor. Shave in the direction the hair grows, not against it. Pat dry. After washing or bathing, gently pat or blot your skin dry with a towel so that some moisture remains on your skin. Moisturize dry skin. If your skin is dry, use a moisturizer that fits your skin type. For daily use, consider a moisturizer that contains SPF.
Do Daily Stretches
Movement has become even more essential now that we’re mostly home-bound and unable to go to our typical exercise facilities. Try some simple stretches to help your body stay relaxed and limber and to keep it from getting too stiff during this time of quarantine.
This point is now more important than ever. Uncontrolled stress can make your skin more sensitive and trigger acne breakouts and other skin problems. To encourage healthy skin — and a healthy state of mind — take steps to manage your stress. Don’t underestimate the importance of using this time to get some rest. Sleep is important for the whole body, not only for your face – it’s healthy. Keep calm and relax before going to bed, use various sprays (you can DIY them) on your bedding to get to sleep faster and easier.
Eat A Healthy Diet
A healthy diet can help you look and feel your best. Eat plenty of fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean proteins. Drinking plenty of water helps keep your skin hydrated.
