Self Care at Home

A few of our favorite beauty brands and beauty influencers

As we enter our first full week of work from home and social isolation sets in, we’ve decided to embrace the opportunity to activate some new beauty self care routines with the goal of achieving glowy, healthy skin.  

In case you want to join us, we’ve compiled our favorite natural beauty brands and products alongside our go-to beauty influencers for self-care success.   

Always wanted to try a facial roller? Us too, and now seems like the perfect time.  We’re trying Skin Gym’s Rose Quartz Facial Roller, which promises a relaxing facial massage that will leave you with radiant skin! Sign us up!  As a side note, Credo Beauty is one of our favorite online stores to get natural skincare and beauty product swaps for everything toxic in your beauty cabinet. 

Another new routine we’re creating is dry brushing after we shower.  Many suggest you dry brush before, but in listening to a recent GOOP podcast and GP’s ask me anything, she suggested dry brushing after you shower. This Purely Elizabeth dry brush is perfect for at home or travel. 

For times when we’re video conference-free, we love to mask. These Juice Beauty Eye Masks are perfect for reducing puffiness and dark circles.  We’re also obsessed with Arctic Breeze’s Rescue Mask for moisture and brightening and Cocokind’s customizable Chlorophyll Mask.

We’re also re-evaluating our daily routines and including weekly baths with Lush Bath Bombs and Ethique Bath Mylk Milk, and getting outside, but now without Josie Maran Cosmetics daily moisturizer and SPF and a daily dose of Vitamin C for our skin, like C is for Colette from Odacite. 

With all our time at home, it’s been easier than usual to get sucked into a social media hole. But that doesn’t have to be a bad thing! Many influencers are sharing what they’re doing to care for themselves and others and it’s beautiful to watch unfold online. 

Seattleite, Kate of @the.skincare.diary shares thorough and honest reviews of all the hot skincare products and ones that may be new to you-- bonus that her feed has an amazing aesthetic. Take this time to try a new Kate-recommended product like Natura Culina Skincare’s Rose’Berry Face Mask.

Another Seattle local, @morgan_lillian regularly openly shares her skincare journey, new products she’s trying, and old favorites she swears by like the Asarai Power Trip Oil. Morgan has also been sharing how to support local businesses during this time which we love to see.

The women of @chemist.confessions share honest, science-based skincare product reviews. Recently, they’ve been hosting live Q & A’s to share more personalized advice or to just hangout with them if you’re feeling particularly lonely during this time.  

How are you practicing self care at home? We’d love to hear from you on Instagram and Twitter!
