Prior to quarantine, my life was very gogogo. Not enough sleep, not enough water, not enough time for anything. But ever since March, life has been a little slower, and I’ve had time to step up my skincare game a bit, and my skin has reaped the benefits. Among my skin concerns are dryness, dullness, fine lines, redness/splotchiness, and sun protection. (Speaking of sun, I wasn’t getting much at all prior to the pandemic, but since so many of my daily activities (like exercising) have moved outdoors, I’m getting much more than usual.)
At 36, I feel the need to put a bit more effort into my skincare routine than I did in my 20s, so I’m frequently trying out new products. I’ve discovered quite a few amazing ones during quarantine, and rediscovered some that I’d only used occasionally in the past. With this cocktail of products, I’ve seen a vast improvement in the texture, brightness, redness, and fine lines. Needless to say, I’ll continue to use them post-pandemic.
