From not squeezing spots to screen breaks – ten rules for a heavenly complexion while staying indoors.
MAYBE you had big ideas of getting a glow on in quarantine, giving your skin space to breathe after years of caked-on make-up.
But instead your face feels dry, itchy and irritated, as you spend days inside with little fresh air and endless blue light from screens.
Not sticking to a regular skincare routine, the stress of juggling work and children and anxiety over what lies ahead . . . it all takes a toll.
But as Lynsey Clarke discovers, stick to these ten complexion commandments and your skin will not just survive but thrive.
Thou shalt not forget sunscreen
JUST because you are not going outside, does not mean you can stop using your daily SPF.
Skin-damaging UV rays can reach your skin through windows and overexposure to the blue light emitted from devices can speed up the ageing process.
Lisa Harris, skin expert and celebrity facialist to Ruth Langsford and Jason Gardiner, says: “Apply an SPF of at least 30 to keep your skin protected from sunlight and blue light radiating on to your skin.”
