Lifestyle changes including diet, exercise and disruptions to our day-to-day routine can play havoc with the overall look and feel of the skin.

As many of us continue to work from home with restrictions limiting our regular beauty appointments, it can be hard to keep our skin looking it’s best but there’s no better time than the present to take these regimes into our own hands.

Here are some simple tips for getting glowing skin at home.

1. Shake it up

What better time to experiment with new products and skincare routines than while working from the comfort of your own home?

Most brands will offer their ranges in travel sizes or as a starter kit so it’s a great way to try that new product you have been eyeing off or maybe time to switch to an alternative range in-between season (or amidst the interrupted lifestyle changes).

Maybe you are looking for something extra to add to your regular routine? Why not try a Jade Roller? These ancient tools have made a resurgence as of late and with a list of skin-loving perks, why wouldn’t you jump on the bandwagon?

Regular use of these handheld gems is said to assist in circulation and aid in stimulating lymphatic drainage to reduce puffiness and improve skin tone. The best part? Slathering on your favorite serum and massaging your face while working from home in your PJ’s without anyone judging you.

2. Go Go Gadget

If you have perfected your current skincare routine, why not incorporate additional skincare tools to get the most out of your products?

The range of Clarisonic facial brushes uses sonic technology to deeply cleanse the face while unblocking pores and revealing smoother skin. It also works to remove excess dirt, oil, makeup and sunscreen build-up, allowing serums and moisturizers to be better absorbed.

NuFACE handheld devices are powered by microcurrent technology and are quick and easy to use. The non-invasive at-home procedure can work in just five minutes and boasts toning and tightening benefits.

3. Super Powers

With the recent unforeseen circumstances, we are missing our regular skincare appointments but fear not! Giving your skin that extra love can be as easy as incorporating some vitamin boosting serums and moisturizers into your regular at-home routine to see that post-salon skin.

With that extra time on your hands and the wait between professional appointments, why not invest in quality, potent products to boost hydration and vitality of the skin.

Look for:

  • Formulas rich in Vitamin A, C and E for anti-aging benefits
  • Hyaluronic Acid for moisture-boosting benefits
  • AHA’s to renew and resurface the skin
