Just like the gang at INIKA Organic, we believe that looking after yourself should always be your number one priority. Particularly during times of uncertainty or change, practicing self care can play a huge part in maintaining your overall mental health and wellbeing.
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues and daily routines and habits are disrupted, it’s only natural to feel a little anxious. In our opinion, this makes self care and wellbeing more important than ever. Ways to practice self care vary between people, but for many beauty enthusiasts, there’s plenty of comfort to be found in a regular beauty routine and at-home spa day.
Whether you’re working from home, practicing social distancing, or both, make time in your schedule to follow our self care tips and find calm during this challenging time.
1. Keep your hands soft and nourished
Practicing good hand hygiene is one of the best ways to do your bit for preventing the spread of COVID-19 and to protect yourself from becoming unwell. Still, washing your hands more often than usual - likely with an antibacterial hand wash or hand sanitiser - can be seriously drying. The alcohol in most hand sanitisers, similar to the surfactants in many antibacterial soaps, can strip your hands of not only germs and pathogens, but also of moisture and essential oils.
To protect your hands, we recommend regularly massaging in a generous amount of our Phytofuse Renew Avocado Hand Cream. Enriched with the powerful Rose of Jericho Extract, this nourishing hand cream creates a physical barrier against moisture loss, making it the best hand cream for dry hands.
2. Indulge in your regime
With so many daily routines disrupted, it’s important to hang onto the ones that you can continue to do as a means of finding comfort and consistency. If you already have an established skincare routine, continue with that - if not, now is a great time to start one! Better yet, treat yourself to a relaxing spa day at home by following our tips below.
Step 1: Cleanse
Start off by removing all traces of makeup, dirt, oils, and impurities with a natural facial cleanser like our Phytofuse Renew Camellia Oil Cleanser. With a unique in-built silicone brush head, this natural cleanser gently massages the skin to ensure a deep cleanse while providing a sensory spa experience.
Step 2: Buff away dead skin cells
Improve skin texture and remove dead skin cells with the Phytofuse Renew Caviar Lime Exfoliator. The clarifying formula of this gentle exfoliant includes AHA fruit complexes that purify pores and remove dead skin cells, leaving you with clear, radiant skin.
Step 3: Restore your skin’s natural barrier
Repair damaged skin with Phyto-Active Botanical Face Oil, our potent face oil that delivers serious hydration and skin protection. This elixir combines 18 botanical oils to reinforce the skin’s natural moisture barrier and boost cell renewal, leaving you with perfectly plump, moisturised skin.
