I have to admit that by beauty editor standards, my beauty routine is relatively low-key. Don’t get me wrong—I love an at-home beauty treatment just as much as the next person, but finding the time to sit down and spend hours upon hours tending to my skin, hair, nails and makeup isn’t so easy. And besides the time aspect of things, I also find myself getting bored very quickly. If you ask me, I’d say that my daily beauty routine is just like any other person’s, but perhaps with just a bit more product variety.
Then, every so often, I get a reality check. It turns out that actually, for most, a structured beauty routine doesn’t go that far beyond a daily cleansing (often just with a face wipe or micellar water) and moisturising. But that was before. Now, everyone seems to be itching to invest some of their recently freed-up time in their beauty routines.
As a result of this, I have been inundated with messages from friends and family wanting to pick my brains on exactly what beauty products I’m using during this trying time. And while I haven’t massively switched up my daily beauty line up, I have been taking advantage of having an extra couple of free hours in the day for a bit of pampering. Along with the rest of our lives, it’s reasonable that over the past few weeks, our beauty priorities are starting to shift too. For instance, I have pared my daily makeup routine right back and have found myself reaching for moisturising formulas that I would never usually favour.
So for those looking to expand their beauty horizons (or simply if you’re feeling a little nosey), keep scrolling for my current working-from-home beauty routine, from the minute I wake up to the minute I hit the hay.
