We are now almost a month deep in a government mandated lockdown during what I’m casually calling a mini apocalypse. If you’re anything like me, then your taste for block cheese and midnight ventures to the refrigerator have developed into full blown habits. This, coupled with my now daily ten hour marathon of bashing keys behind a thin, bezeled screen five feet from my bed has resulted in a less than stellar dermis. For me, my skin has been the biggest loser of the covid-19 pandemic. This is due in equal measure to the slipping of my own erstwhile skincare routine and the lifestyle adjustment that ensued following the news that we would no longer be dining out.
My skin, much like (probably) yours, could do with a tune up. The great indoors is no place to foster a glowing complexion. If you have found yourself in the position I am currently in (overdue for a haircut and in desperate need of vitamin D) then the below will serve as a constitution to amend and remedy the month of inactivity. These are the things you can do right now to cure Lockdown Skin.
