Has anyone given any thought to what a beauty routine might look like for the next 3 weeks or more that stops skin from going to pot, but doesn't use up/waste products that really only prep the skin to be seen? I can only think of things like self tanner, or glow drops, but I wonder if I need to be using retinol or hyaluronic acid serum or vitamin c if I'm not leaving the house. Does anyone know?

I'm upping my retinol as I can flake away without being seen!

I will try and use my nu face every day. Great idea. I paid enough for it I should see some results if I persist and I'm not rushing to be at work.

I am in Southern Hemisphere so pre winter I am going to lather on body lotion regularly.
Be good and regular with retinoids
I have short fine hair which usually cut every 4 weeks just been Cut last week so hope it lasts through my 4 week lockdown
My eyelash tint will have worn out by the time I can go back to beauty therapist and all those fine hairs will have grown back on upper lip and chin.
I am a healthcare worker and COVID 19 scares the sh-t out of me - it is amazing that you can worry about your blonde moustache with all this stuff going on.
I also decided if I was wearing a mask and no jewellery to work then I would make sure my eyes are well made up.
No shops except supermarkets open so will have to but some maybelline from supermarket when my lash tint runs out - anyone know if maybelline OK with contact lenses?

I am not wearing any make up but showering once a day and washing my face, eye cream and moisturiser twice a day

Also trying to keep up with microneedling and laser hair removal. Using the Tria and after once use hair hadn’t grown back after a month so will try to keep using that and on other areas

I’m very casual and basic (comfortable!) when I’m at home
