Quarantine Self Care, Tools And Techniques That Have Me Glowing!




I don’t know about you but these last few weeks of not wearing make up every day has been doing wonders for my skin. But I have now set myself the goal that I would like to come out of quarantine looking better than ever and I figure I would share some of the products and techniques I have committed myself to daily so far.

The answer: a whole new series of gadgets, gizmos, and techniques, to tide me over until I can go and get some real aesthetic work done.
Here’s what I’ve been doing…

Rose Quarts Rollers

Using a Rose Quartz Roller is great if your face is looking bloated or puffy, I have been using it in the morning and at night I cleanse after I have cleansed my skin and applied a facial mask or sheet mask to help it penetrate my skin,  lymphatic drainage and facial massage which feels great, and very relaxing.

When done Facial rolling can improves headaches, sinus congestion, eye strain, and puffiness of the lower eyelids. Additionally, because the roller is cold, blood flow is restricted and the pressure pushes lymph fluid to the lymph nodes, helping to  filter out toxins.
Here is a link to the exact one I use Here. It’s rose quartz (which is not only pretty and my fave colour but a very important self-love crystal!) and also comes with a gua sha tool.

Hydrogel Eye Patches 
Koelf Gold Royal Jelly

I have been incorporating eye gel patches into my beauty routine for some time now to combat the dark circles around my eyes, and of late I have been finding that I am wearing them more during the day while I am working and I will probably will do more as the temperature gets warmer and I’m still stuck inside.
Currently I swear by  Koelf Gold Royal Jelly which you can purchase Here but there are many other types of Gel Eye patches on the market which boasts various beauty benefits

Facial Radiance Pads  First Fab Beauty
This is a new product that I am adding to my regime as I have a tendency to be hard handed when using traditional exfoliating techniques, this is also my first time using aa product like this but after seeing many rave reviews about it, I decided to give it a go. Facial radiance pads are cotton pads that are soaked in exfoliating acids which are said to be the most effective way of gently exfoliating the skin.

They also contain lactic and glycolic acids; the lactic acid is good for resurfacing skin and works well on dry skin whilst the glycolic acid is great for resurfacing and stimulating collagen production.

 Watermelon Glow Ultra-Fine Mist 
Glow Recipe
I cannot stress how fine this delicious smelling facial mist is which is also made with a dewy skin-inducing formula consisting of 84% watermelon, hyaluronic acid, hibiscus flower, AHAs, and more botanicals. The ingredients separate when you leave the product standing still, so you need to give it a little shake before you spritz and you can use it throughout the day to refresh your skin

Watermelon Glow Sleeping Mask 
Glow Recipe
Originally I would use the Watermelon Glow Sleeping in the same way as a night cream before going to bed and I always wake up with the smoothest and hydrated skin. Since I have been using I have seen a defendant  improvement in the appearance of my pores, Since the quarantine I have also been using this product in the day time also after I cleanse my skin in the morning


Precleanse
 Dermalogica 

Ok I have to admit that I actually prefer the precleanse balm as I find it easier to use and I like that it some with a  double-sided Cleansing Mitt for mild exfoliation.
However unfortunately I ordered the wrong item but I’m using it anyway until it runs out.
Deep-cleansing oil melts impurities and make-up from skin and in combination with a face wash helps to achieve ultra clean and healthy-looking skin. The Deep-cleansing oil melts away layers of excess sebum (oil), sunscreen, makeup, environmental pollutants and any residual products that build up the on skin throughout the day Add water to transform this hydrophilic (water-loving) formula into a milky emulsion that easily rinses debris from the skin’s surface, allowing your Cleanser to penetrate even further for amazing cleansing results.

Multi-Active Toner 
Dermalogica 

Defiantly one of my MVP products;  The Multi-Active Toner Light facial toner spray hydrates and refreshes while Helping to condition and prepare for proper moisture absorption when you spritz all over the face and decollate  after cleansing, and before applying my Moisturizer. I also spritz throughout the day to refresh my skin

Body Brushing



Epsom Salts

CBD Body Balm 
Raise Sprit

Perhaps a bit controversial but it is a god send for my joint an muscle pains as well as my rashes. This Organic and vegan CBD Body Balm
Cleanse yourself fully, appreciate your body and generously massage our Organic CBD Body Balm over yourself with kind and loving intentions.
CBD has very powerful anti-inflammatory properties which help support the skin’s natural healing processes. CBD also contains potent antioxidants - more powerful than vitamin C and E. CBD binds to a special set of receptors in the skin known as TRPV-1 receptors, where it can help feelings of heat, itch, and pain, which explains CBD's soothing effect on the skin. The anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial properties of CBD naturally help improve skin conditions such as rosacea, eczema and psoriasis. By using the flowers of the hemp plant to source our cannabidiol, we ensure you are provided with the full spectrum of cannabinoids, allowing for a synergistic healing effect, as nature intended.
Tip: try massaging into the soles of your feet just before bed for a deep, relaxing, stress-relieving sleep!
