You already know that the key to maintaining healthy, youthful-looking skin is to adhere to a consistent skincare routine. However, now that you are indoors, you may believe that skipping or abandoning a few products from this routine is acceptable. However, the truth is that doing so can be detrimental to your skin in more ways than you can imagine. The following are the reasons why you should continue with your morning and evening skincare routines even if you are trapped indoors.
Dust and other pollutants found indoors:
While your skin is no longer exposed to smoke and pollution on the outside, it is still exposed to dust and indoor pollutants, which can accumulate on the skin’s surface and cause problems. If you’re cooking, oil, heat, and smoke in the kitchen can also cause skin irritation if not properly cleaned. As a result, it is necessary to cleanse your face twice daily with a mild yet effective cleanser and to maintain your lockdown skincare routine.
Even when you are indoors, the sun’s rays can cause damage to your skin. Did you know that UVB rays can pass through glass windows and cause skin damage? Not only that, but the light emitted by your phone and laptop can result in pigmentation and redness. Even when you are
indoors, skipping sunscreen is not an option. To stay protected, apply a generous layer after cleansing your skin in the morning.
Anxiety and stress:
It is natural to feel stressed and anxious during times like these. It frequently results in stress eating and hormonal imbalance, which can manifest as skin problems such as breakouts or dryness. Learn how to maintain a healthy mind and body by staying physically active and eating a balanced diet. If you’re already using serums or night creams to address specific skin concerns, continue using them to prevent future breakouts.
Sitting in front of a laptop for extended periods of time while working or binge-watching the television shows can be taxing on the eyes. It may even result in dehydrated skin around the eyes and the appearance of dark circles. It is critical to continue using an eye cream to moisturize the area and combat dark circles.
