COVID-19 lockdown has impacted our lives in many ways. In this time of lockdown, we need to remind ourselves that it is important to focus on self care, mental health and relationships.
Take time to develop your morning routine, you skincare routine and your eating routine. Give yourself attention that you’ve been lacking since a while. Along with that, make your bedtime routine. Nowadays because most of us have plenty of time, try experimenting some home-made masks as well as face packs.
Here Are Some Of The Self-Care Tips You Can Follow
How To Grow Healthier Lashes
- Castor oil
Castor oil is one strong ingredient to give your lashes a boost. Applying castor oil on the lashes every day will give you thicker lashes and will also stop them from falling out.
Mix few drops of castor oil with coconut oil and apply it on your eyelashes with a q-tip or a mascara wand. Make it your daily bedtime routine and wash it in the morning.
- Green tea
Drinking green tea can be very effective, not only for your weight but also for your hair. It stimulates the growth of new hair and keeps your current ones healthy. Drinking green tea regularly and also apply it on the lashes works wonders.
Freeze a used green tea bag and place it on your eyelids. It will grow your eyelashes and will calm your tired eyes. Doing it on the alternate days or every day depends on your own comfort.
- Petroleum jelly
Vaseline petroleum jelly is a great conditioner and moisturiser for the lash lines which contributes to the fast growth of eyelashes.
Take a clean mascara wand and apply some Vaseline Petroleum Jelly on it and smooth it down with your eyelashes, try not to put too much as it will make your eyes uncomfortable.
Treat your nails
- Keep Your Nails Moisturised
Moisturising is not something which will grow your nails but it can definitely prevent them from breaking. So ensure that you moisturise the cuticles from time to time.
You can also apply some olive oil to keep them from breaking often.
- Wear Rubber Gloves While Working With Water
Don’t let water ruin your perfect nails or the so not perfect manicure you’re left with. Wear rubber gloves while working in water, doing dishes or laundry. This will protect the nails against chemicals usually found in soaps that can cause nails to break.
Things That Enhance Your Skin Health
- Exfoliate regularly
The most important thing you can do for your skin is to exfoliate. Scrub away all that dead skin cells to give yourself a fresh-looking skin. By getting rid of these dead skin cells, get closer to achieving clear skin.
Make yourself a good exfoliator scrub by mixing coffee and a little coconut oil.
- Lemon Juice
Lemon juice is a widely used ingredient to lighten skin tones. It helps in effectively reducing skin problems like dark spots, pigmentation, blackheads, pimples and acne.
- Gram Flour, Yogurt and Rosewater
Mix gram flour, rose water and yoghurt together to form a smooth paste. Apply the mask all over your face and let it stay on for about 20-30 minutes. Rinse with warm water.
