My beauty routine during isolation has become quite pared back and I’ve found myself gravitating towards the same products. I’ve been focusing on the basics and trying to hit reset on a few things — if I’m going to be at home for awhile, I figured I may as well take advantage of it. My focus has been on nourishing hair, skin and nails (the building blocks of any beauty look) and really giving them a big nourishing boost. Hopefully by the time things go back to normal they’ll all be in top condition and stronger and healthier than they were pre-isolation. Here are some of my current favourites.
Vida Glow Marine Collagen
I’ve always believed that if you start with a good foundation for your beauty look then everything else will just sit better and the result is a nicer finish. I’m currently taking Vida Glow marine collagen supplements twice a day and I can definitely see the difference in my hair, skin and nails. It’s a really easy thing to incorporate into my routine as I just mix a sachet with water and drink.
Nivea Rich Nourishing 48hr Body Cream
I’ve tried a range of body moisturisers but this is without a doubt my favourite. I like it because it’s unfussy and does what it’s supposed to which is essentially to nourish and moisturise my skin. It’s got a great consistency, smells really nice and I lather it on and walk away with skin that feels great. It’s also the easiest thing in the world to get as it’s stocked so widely.
Sally Hansen Hard as Nails
I’m trying to give my nails a break from nail polish to restore them. With events and race days on pause for awhile I figured it was the ideal time to avoid polish and just leave my nails be for awhile. Wearing nail polish so often can really take a toll so I’m using this Sally Hansen nail hardener to try and make them strong again.
