4 ways to restore your hair & skin health during the lockdown

Healthcare routine tips

Think of all the efforts taken in managing time for your beauty & upkeep amidst your busy daily routine, and look at all the time that you have got now to pamper yourself to your heart’s content by looking after your hair and skin. Self-care is also a good way of keeping anxiety at bay and indulging into something that you truly enjoy. And when there’s zero exposure to the pollution, this is the right time in indulging in everything that makes you shine. Seeing the results will also motivate you to utilise all the spare time that you have got in restoring your skin and hair health.

Here are some quick ways that you take up to utilise this lockdown to work on your hair & skin health:

Body Scrub: 

When you have ample time, indulge in full-body scrubs that will exfoliate your skin and remove the dead skin layer. It will also improve blood circulation and nourish the skin from deep within. The only thing to keep in mind is not going overboard with it or you can harm the skin. Remember to hydrate and moisturize your skin afterwards.


One of the most recommended ways of relaxation is a full-fledged facial. Starting with deep cleansing, followed by scrubbing, massaging and putting up face masks, facial can be a good way to rejuvenate skin and relax. As you continue to #stayhome during the lockdown, avoid makeup when not required and let the skin breathe.

Hair Masks:

In your normal routine, you hardly get time to put hair mask for the recommended duration and you often wash it off in a hurry. But now, you can experiment with various hair masks, put them on and see which one gives you the best results. You can also go for deep hair oiling and massage, and keep it for as long as you want. With no college or office to attend, you can keep your hair oiled and replenish all the care & nutrition it needs.

Manicure & Pedicure: 

With an increased number of household chores, you are bound to neglect your hand and feet upkeep. Take out time and indulge in long manicures & pedicures at home. Take advantage of staying home and not stepping out and prevent your hand and feet from dirt and dust. Soaking your feet in warm water will also destress you in a wonderful way.
