If you'd like to create an exhaustive skincare routine, now is the time! Being at home all day can affect your skin but it also gives you time to treat yourself to more involved types of beauty routine.

In this article, we'll take a look at all the ways you can take care of your skin during the quarantine. Ready to discover the secrets of effective quarantine skincare? Stick around and find out more!


The Negative Effects of Staying at Home All Day

Staying at home all day can have some serious negative effects on your skin. Some of these include:

  1. Increased damage to your skin from the blue light of screens
  2. More wrinkles caused by stress
  3. No access to salons so you can't have a facial
  4. Acne breakouts caused by the stress of having to stay in place.

Thankfully, a good quarantine skincare routine can help to alleviate all of these factors.


Blue Light Damage

Blue light is hard to avoid during the quarantine. The wavelengths of blue light that screens emit can play havoc with your skin.

Dermatologists believe that blue light penetrates the skin and causes oxidative damage to your DNA. This means inflammation, breakdown of your skin's collagen, and dark spots on your skin.

The best way to handle this is to use a serum! For example, the Defenage 8-in-1 Bioserum. This serum is infused with a fantastic array of ingredients to help rejuvenate your skin and protect you from any damage caused by blue light exposure.

What's more, this serum is excellent value. It packs the punch of eight regular serums into one small and wonderful package. That's why it's one of our favorite products and one that you definitely deserve during this difficult time.


Say Goodbye to Wrinkles

Blue light isn't the only thing that could be damaging your skin right now. The entire world is feeling stressed over the current pandemic and stress can lead to more damage and more wrinkles. The best way to alleviate this problem is to use Neocutis MicroNight rejuvenating cream!

This fantastic cream should be applied at night for the best results and it will make sure that you wake up with fresher, younger-looking skin. The cream is packed with vitamins and antioxidants that your skin needs, and can make short work of dark circles, wrinkles, and other signs of fatigue and stress.

The best part is that buying this product will also help a great cause. It's part of our Quarantine Queen selection: for every product you buy from this curated selection, we will donate $5 to the CDC to help them fight COVID-19!


Get the Facial You Deserve

Are you unhappy that you can't go to the salon to get a facial? Well, don't worry! You can do one at home with a professional-quality kit.

We've slashed the price of our professional peel kit from $200 to $150 to help your skin get everything that you need during the quarantine. This kit is only for aesthetic professionals but we are happy to include certificate training if you need a refresher course in professional peels. The kit comes with enough materials for 9 peels as well as a vitamin c and retinol booster.

This booster helps put the finishing touches on your skin and keep you looking fresh and healthy during the quarantine.

Vitamin C is an effective anti-aging treatment for a number of reasons: it helps boost collagen production and also inhibits your melanin production, which means fewer dark spots. It's also an antioxidant that can help protect your skin from free radical damage.

Retinol is another skincare essential. This ingredient helps to make your skin look firmer, reducing signs of aging like wrinkles and uneven skin tone.

If you are an aesthetic professional, this kit can give you salon-level results in the comfort of your own home. It's also part of the Quarantine Queen set, so you'll be helping a good cause while giving yourself some much-needed self-care.


Stop Acne Breakouts In Their Tracks

Stress is one of the primary trigger of acne breakouts. If you suffer from acne, consider adding a treatment to your quarantine skincare routine. One affordable product that we strongly recommend is Glo Skin Beauty: Clear Spot Treatment.

This treatment targets the bacteria that cause acne and prevents future flare ups with a dose of benzoyl peroxide. It's perfect for stopping acne breakouts as they're developing!


Treat Yourself to Our Quarantine Care Kit

If the quarantine is getting to you, treat yourself to our quarantine care kit! This kit contains everything that you need to stay healthy, happy, and looking your best during the quarantine.

In this kit, you'll find Farmhouse Fresh Luxe hand cream to keep your hands from getting sore and dry with regular washing. You'll also get two 3-ply masks that can help keep you safe when you need to head outside.

In addition to this, the kit also contains products to help you ward off the worst effects of cabin fever. These include a Natural Vitality Calm shake to help you relax as well as a bottle of 600 mg CBD oil, which is one of our best-selling products. You'll also get a Sprinkle of Love commemorative tin.

As with all the other products in our Quarantine Queen selection, some of your money will also go towards the CDC.
