The Ultimate Self-Care Beauty Routine

Last updated on: 2020


Now that we are a few months into social distancing, it’s common to feel nervous and anxious due to all of the uncertainty around us. Creating a self-care routine is a great way to allow your mind and body to relax despite day-to-day anxieties. Now’s the time to put yourself first. Why exactly? Not only will practicing self-care help you decompress after a long day, but you could even emerge from social distancing with your best skin yet!

To help you get started, we’ve curated a lineup of products to create the ultimate self-care beauty routine.

1. Double-Cleansing

Let’s be real; you’ve got nothing but time. Why not try double cleansing? Especially if it means twice as clean skin!

First, start with an oil-based cleanser to remove makeup, dirt, oil, and grime from your face. We love Versed Day Dissolve Cleansing Balm satisfying melting texture, which gently removes impurities.

Next, follow up with a water-based cleanser like Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Cleanser to leave skin squeaky clean without stripping away your skin’s natural oils.

2. Multi-Masking

Now’s the time to pinpoint your skin’s needs and customize your care with multi-masking! Apply different face masks to different spots on your face based on your needs, creating a tailor-made treatment your skin will love.

Our current fave combo?

First, apply Origins Clear Improvement Active Charcoal Mask around the nose to clear out pesky pores.

Then, follow with Bliss Mighty Marshmallow Mask around cheeks and outer areas of the face to bring radiance and luminosity to your face.

Finally, use I Dew Care’s Cake My Day Hydrating Mask on the forehead and chin to add instant moisturization to dry areas.

3. Hydrating Moisturizers

Being indoors may keep skin safe from harmful UV rays; however, your skin can become dry from exposure to air conditioning. Fix dry skin fast with these hydrating moisturizers!

Have you got dry skin? Higher Education Skincare’s DOUBLE MAJOR ™ Moisture Relief Gel is our holy grail hydration product. Its jelly-like consistency helps strengthen your skin’s natural moisture balance and doesn’t leave a greasy residue. 

Oily Skin Type? Try Tatcha The Water Cream – an oil-free cream that clarifies and refines skin while providing it with much-needed moisture.

4. Hair, Body, and Nail Care

Don’t forget to show the rest of your body some love! These products will give your hair, body, and nails the TLC they deserve.

Hair: Whether you’ve decided to bite the bullet and reach for the box dye or your hair is craving some extra love, OLAPLEX No. 3 Hair Perfector will restore your hair to its former glory. Apply a generous amount from roots to ends, leave in for at least 10 minutes, and see instant results once washed off! You’re guaranteed to be obsessed, don’t say we didn’t warn you!

Body: All skin ranging from normal to extremely dry will love with Alaffia’s Everyday Shea Body Lotion. This lotion uses ethically traded unrefined shea butter to create that extra luxurious feeling.

Nails: We’re currently reaching for Nailtural’s Cuticle Oil to help soften cuticles and nourish nails after suffering through grown out acrylics. Apply on your nails and follow up with their Nail Strengthener for particularly damaged nails. Your nail lady will thank you!
