The Importance of Self-Care
Although watching TV shows can be comforting, sometimes self-care can be greatly affected. With hours indoors all day, your skin can sometimes feel dry and unmoisturized. During these times – it is vital to take care of yourself.
If your skin ends up breaking out during quarantine this could be a variety of things: the amount of stress that has been circulating from the pandemic, lack of physical activity and sleep, changes of your diet, and finally, overuse of technology
However, this doesn’t mean that it is not possible to achieve healthy skin! If your main skin concern is dullness, it may be because of not wearing sunscreen. With the combination of staying indoors and UV rays being present from windows, sunscreen is our most valuable friend.

Striving for self-balance may be hard during such an intense time, so make sure to especially take care of your skin, be consistent with your sleeping schedule and food habits, and still treat yourselves to these worthwhile shows!
