3 Lockdown Essentials to Add to Your Skincare Routine

[4 MINUTE READ]

2021 is here and so is another lockdown in the UK! Since this is officially our third lockdown in under a year, like us, many of you may be feeling fed up and unmotivated. However, in times like these, it really is about finding joy in the small things.

We've put together our 3 current favourite products and devices for you to add to your skincare routine. They will truly form part of your lockdown essentials by helping you to relax and to improve the appearance of your skin.

 

 

 

1. The FOREO BEAR

Kicking things off with our new favourite; The FOREO BEAR UK. This nifty device not only works immediately to create a depuffed and lifted face, it also works overtime to support your skin in producing more collagen and reducing fine lines and wrinkles. However, the thing that I have been loving the most during lockdown is that the FOREO BEAR really helps release the tension on your face! For many of us, this past year has been incredibly stressful and I personally, do not want the stress to show up on my face!

 

Enter the FOREO BEAR. The BEAR and the BEAR mini use a microcurrent facial to help release the tension on your face and neck in only 2 minutes! The microcurrent pulsations help relax the muscles and smooth out the skin, resulting in a relaxing 2-minute treatment and sculpted younger-looking skin! Win-Win!  Shop the FOREO BEAR UK now, or if you are interested in finding out more about the device, check out the full review of this product here.

 

2. Dr.Jart Colour Correcting Treatment

Obsessed doesn't cover it! If you suffer from sensitivity and redness like us then this product is incredible, especially during these more unprecedented times! This product has recently gone wild on TikTok, and for good reason; some of the before and afters really are mesmerizing. If you need a soothing and anti-redness product to replace your foundation, then this is the one! Check out the application process on TikTok to make sure you do it right by warming the product and pressing it into the skin. Then, simply watch as the green formula adapts to the colour of your skin tone, all the while masking any redness.

 

The product's hero ingredient is Tiger Grass. This is a type of grass that tigers roll around in after getting scrapes and burns as it helps soothe their skin and helps with recovery over time! The instant soothing effect of applying this product on the skin really is one of those 'ahhh and breathe' moments!

 

3. Clinique Moisture Surge 72 hour Moisturiser

If you have been a reader for a while, you will know that this is truly one of my favourite products of all time. I recommend it often and many of my nearest and dearest (as well as many of you, our lovely readers) now swear by it too. The texture is super light, which is amazing for all skin types, whether you are blemish-prone or more on the drier-end of the spectrum. The mix of hyaluronic acid and Aloe water creates a perfect formula that doesn't irritate my skin and hydrates deeply.

 

I have even used this magic formula during/after extreme skin reactions and it is always one of the very few things that helps my skin recover during those extremely sensitive times. If your skin needs hydration or is generally unhappy, this product is a fab addition to your skincare shelfie; it will not let you down!
