COVID-19 has rocked everyone’s lives. All over the world, people have had to adjust their way of life, with the stress and trauma of a worldwide pandemic.
It’s not only reasonable for you to be feeling the extra weight of what’s happening right now, it’s also expected. But that doesn’t mean we have to throw self-care out the window simply because we’re stuck at home most of the time.
If anything, that’s reason enough to put more time into ourselves and pour into self-care in a way that sets us up for happiness when this virus and pandemic is behind us.
In order to feel more like your true self during this time, let’s focus on five reasons self-care during COVID is vital to our well beings.
1. Skincare and skin health will make you feel better
There’s a reason the phrase, “look good, feel good,” is so popular. It’s not just a gimmick to get people to look their best. It actually works!
When you prioritize how you look, you’ll feel better yourself. Which means rolling out of bed and yanking on pajamas for the whole day isn’t the best way to care for yourself during a pandemic—no matter how good it might feel in the moment.
The truth is that when we look good, we feel more like ourselves—we feel more like the selves we were before this virus hit.
And this includes our skin and our skincare. Why? Because your skin is all of you. It’s what gets shown first, your very most outer layer to the world. When you take care of your skin, and you wake up with glowing, healthy skin, you can look in the mirror and feel excited, refreshed, and ready for the day!
As tempting as it can be to not even wash your face before hopping on to your virtual job (Zoom skin filter or not), putting your best face forward can help you feel a little more normal during a crazy time.
2. You can still receive top, safe care
We understand the desire to stay home instead of venture out into the world. After all, maskne is a real concern. But in fact, this is even more reason to see a dermatologist and provide some self-care by way of professional, safe skincare.
Our providers are fully committed to maintaining your safety and health while providing care. Plus, now is the best time for those more advanced procedures that result in stunning, long-term benefits but do require some downtime at home.
Some of these include treatments like:
Now is the time to have “down time”! Plus, with ample time spent indoors, there is little risk of sun exposure for these more sensitive but fruitful skincare treatments.
3. You’ll have an easier time getting BACK into the workforce
We all understand how we can let some personal things go during a traumatic time. The way self-care plays into this is taking care of yourself so when you can get back to work and get back into the workforce, you look and feel your very best.
You can pick up where you left off and continue on with your life.
This means prioritizing yourself, your health, and caring for your needs so you can look and feel amazing when you get back to “regular” life.
4. Self-care is easier than ever right now!
We’re not the only ones who recognize how important self-care is during a time like this. Which means not only do we have skincare on our minds for gifts for the holidays, but many others are also prioritizing helping you achieve self-care.
For this holiday season, give yourself the gift of caring and invest in healthy skin care procedures to take you back to your glowy, supple self!
