Over the next few weeks restriction may be relaxed gradually, but most of will still be spending major of our time at home. Hair dressers will most likely be closed over the next coming weeks, there’s also likely to be side effects of sitting inside for long period of time.

So i thought i would put together a list of health and beauty essentials for you to look over. These’s could be vital for your time spent at home! I hope this list will help.

Hand Cream – With us being advised to wash/sanitise our hands multiple times throughout the day, can result in super dry hands. So to help keep our hands to be comefortable and nourished, hand cream is really important.

Vitamin D – Whether or not you believe that vitamin D helps the immume system, the fact is by spending large amount of your day inside can result in lower levels of vitamin D (this doesn’t mean you have a deficiencie, but could contribute later on), it can also cause fatigue, weakness, hairless and pain.

Professional Hair Scissors – Like i mentioned at the beginning, hair dressers most probably be closed over the next coming weeks or even months. Saying that, your hair will still need to be cut/trimmed at some point- Which is daunting to think. However, if you are thinking about doing it yourself, make sure to be armed with professional hair dressing scissors. Never use kitchen scissors.

Pillow Spray – Adjusting to situations for some can be quite difficult in many ways, especially in these testing times. So if your finding that your brain isn’t switching off, instead your worrying about endless things – most probably from consuming to much news, then why not try out some amazing apps like, headspace. It can help to reduce anxious thoughts especially at night, but if your not into the apps, why not try pillow spray.

Hand Sanitiser – It’s alway handy to have a small pocket sized hand sanitiser bottle on hand, especially now since covid.

Lakeland Cosmetics | Hand Gel 70% Alcohol £3.99

Non-Foaming Cleanser – Whether you wear make-up or not not, a is still important. If you wear make-up then a heavy-duty cleanser would be ideally to remove make-up residue at the end of the day. On the other hand, if you aren’t wearing make-up then a lighter non-oil based cleanser would be better suited – this will remove surface oil dirt on the skin, rather than stripping. 

Garnier Micellar Water Facial Cleanser £5

Paula’s Choice | Defense Gel to Cream Cleanser £22

Self-Massage Rollers – With many of us likely to be sitting for long periods of time, is protientally going to cause muscle to become tighten, especially hips, chest, shoulder blade, neck, leg muscles and glutes; so getting up and walk around every hour or so a great start to preventing muscle pain. If walking around doesn’t help on smaller trigger point, then a single or double massage all might just do the trick. An alternative from a massage ball is a foam roller – great for the leg and back muscles.
