Confinement is a time of stress and worry for many of us. Sometimes, these feelings invade us to the point of causing us to abandon our beauty routine, wrongly. Indeed, nothing is better for morale than to continue to take care of yourself and feel good about yourself!
What beauty routine to adopt during confinement?
Limit imperfections by wearing a mask
Let's start with a phenomenon closely linked to the arrival of Covid-19 in our lives. The "masked" is a contraction of the terms "mask" and "acne". If you suffer from masked skin, redness, irritation, pimples and / or cysts appear on your face since you have worn the mask, or when you wear it for several hours at a time during the day. These imperfections and discomforts are favored in particular by the mask pressure on your face and the heat contained within. Humidity and heat forge an ideal environment for the proliferation of bacteria, partly responsible for these imperfections.
Usually, the parts of the face most affected by the masked are the cheeks, nose, forehead and chin. In order to fight this masked phenomenon and protect you from redness, pimples and irritation caused by the mask, several gestures are to be adopted. First, you are strongly advised to cleanse your face twice a day with a natural cleanser (organic, preferably) suitable for your skin type. Whether you have oily, dry, combination or sensitive skin, choose gentle cleansers.
Second, consider moisturizing your skin properly. Hydration should always be the number one step in your beauty routine during confinement, and after also! Choosing the right moisturizer goes through good knowledge of your skin type, just like the cleanser. If you have dry skin, choose a natural moisturizer containing vegetable oils. On the contrary, if you have oily skin, opt for a natural moisturizer containing non-comedogenic active ingredients. We also advise you to opt for a product that will control the excess sebum produced by your skin. Sensitive skin ? Choose a hypoallergenic moisturizer, without essential oils and without perfume.
Let yourself be tempted by the layering
Containment is the best opportunity to try your hand at the famous layering or Japanese saho! The principle is both simple and revolutionary: apply to your skin 6 natural and organic products preferably, in a specific order. This method offers a pure moment of relaxation and well-being, while providing your skin with the best care. Enough to de-stress both her skin and her mind! Here are the 6 products to apply for the saho during your beauty containment routine:
- A makeup remover adapted to your skin : use cleansing oils if you have dry skin. If you have oily skin, we recommend natural micellar waters;
- A natural cleanser : if your skin is not too sensitive to perfumes, why not indulge in a bath with essential oils for body and face? Otherwise, choose natural cleansing soaps or gels;
- Tonic lotion / mist : third step, the application of a light tonic lotion to promote hydration of the skin. Don't forget to adapt your products to your skin type, it's essential!
- Eye contour : opt for an organic and natural product and tap lightly to stimulate the blood microcirculation;
- An organic face serum / mask : Choose between a serum or a face mask;
- Your moisturizer : after having chosen it carefully, apply your cream or natural moisturizer. It will bring softness and suppleness to your skin. This step should be done morning and evening.
Small bonus, some people tend to recommend a seventh step for this layering: the lip balm. Even if they are hidden under your mask, they need hydration and nutrition more than ever!
On the makeup side, have a light hand on the foundation when wearing the mask. Prefer a highlighting your gaze and your eyebrows. To unify your complexion and bring radiance in this autumn period, bet on mineral powders which will let your skin breathe and limit the marks on your fabric masks.

Confinement can also be an opportunity to take care of yourself. Where time is lacking in normal times, book your weekends or your late afternoons by giving yourself a cocooning and de-stressing break.
