To keep your skin healthy, skincare routine, a bit of sunlight and fresh air is a must. Check out these DIY beauty hacks you can do at home.
TLC to your dry hands
Give your hands some tender love and care. Wash and dry your hands cautiously especially the under rings. Every after wash, make sure you apply a hand cream to keep it moisturized all the time. To rejuvenate your hand skin, mix some avocado and extra virgin olive oil into the hand cream, apply it on your hands and cover with cotton socks all night. It will help rejuvenate the skin.
Make avocado face mask
To nourish your skin, make an avocado face mask. Mash half avocado, 1 teaspoon honey, and mix. Lather on your face, leave for 15 minutes, and remove using a clean, wet cloth.
Get a home tan
An extra color can make your skin glow. You can do a self-tan at home - literally in your backyard or poolside. A little sun is not bad at all, as long as you do it at home. Always remember to use sunscreen to protect your skin.
Let your hair rest from blow-drier and hair straightener.
Since you're staying most of the time at home, let your hair rest from the heat. There’s no need to blow-dry or curl your hair. After a shower, dry your hair with a clean and dry towel, comb it through and let it dry naturally.
Leave your eyebrows and lashes alone
Your brows have suffered enough from pulling, threading, and shaping them. They have been over-plucked, why not let them grow for a while? Salons are closed anyways, so just let them grow. Let your lashes rest from false lashes or tint too.
Skip the nail polish too
