There are many ways to reduce stress, such as yoga, morning meditations, or switching up your diet to include more plant-based foods and less dairy. Stripping it back to basics, the simplest things you can do to keep your skin happy are sleep, exercise and drinking lots of water. But as the current lockdown crisis is set to continue over the upcoming weeks, impaired blood flow can have damaging consequences for our health and to our skin. Here are three skincare tips to boost both your complexion and your mood.
NOURISH YOUR BODY
While you’re busy doing everything to fight the effects of the environment, the consequences of the current climate can affect more than just your mind. Allow yourself to relax a little. Feel like you’re in need of a little treat? Indulge yourself from top to bottom in the sweet scent of almond with L’Occitane. For a deep state of relaxation.
