We’ve all dreamed of an epic makeover at the end of summer – after all, everyone wants to look new and fresh. As some schools are offering in-person classes while other schools are not, we all want to make a new first-impression. This can be seen through perfecting our makeup skills, or by wearing fun new outfits. Although, we are perfect inside and out – there’s nothing wrong with changing a few bad habits and implementing new ones. As a “glow up” is defined as, “an incredible transformation” both emotionally and physically – MDSUN introduces the guide of: How To “Glow Up” During Quarantine.
As the skin is the largest organ in our body, it is essential to take care of it. We recommend that you use a simple, yet effective skincare routine. You should start off your morning routine with a cleanser, moisturizer, and sunscreen. You can add a toner or serum, but cleansing is extremely important in the morning.
MDSUN’S Active Cleanser is for those who have oily to combination skin. This cleanser works well to eliminate possible breakouts as well as keeping your skin smooth and hydrated. The main ingredients in this cleanser contain Glycolic Acid, Provitamin B5, Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Lactic Acid, β- Glucan. As Glycolic Acid helps with skin texture, Provitamin B5 is another active ingredient that helps soothe your skin.
Your night time routine can be more complex. You may want to add serums that could help with acne scars, textures, or even wrinkles. Additionally, please look through what skincare products are breaking you out as some may contain fragrance and harsh ingredients.
You can totally reinvent your fashion choice during quarantine. There are many different stores ranging from local thrift stores all the way to online stores. Look for places that you like and you could see yourself shopping at frequently.
Quarantine is the best time to experiment with makeup, hair, nails, and even eyebrows. You may want to make a few touch-ups with your makeup, or go for a completely edgy look. When looking for makeup products, consider what kind of aesthetic you want to go for. Would you rather have a more natural or bold look? Would you want to have a more matte or glossy look? The same can be said with hair, nails, and eyebrows. However, make sure that when choosing those “looks”, that they compliment well with your features. For example, if you have a more round face, get bangs that enhance your features.
As MDSUN has previously stated how vital vision boards are, they definitely play a huge part of “glowing up”. Vision boards are when you collect images, texts, or cliparts that align with your goal. You can put these vision boards wherever you want, as long as they are in places where you check frequently. While some are misled that a “glow-up” can only be achieved physically, your mindset is the most important tool.
Finally, when “glowing-up” make sure that you have time to explore your passions and hobbies. This could be finishing an art-piece that you’ve been working on for a while or even playing your favorite sport. As stated before, a “glow-up” means not only transforming physically, but mentally too. Allowing yourself to creatively explore your interests will not only make you a happier, but stronger person. At the end of the day, a “glow-up” does not happen unless you make the correct steps to approach it.
