How to adapt your skincare regime to the ‘new normal’

New habits from frequent hand washing and sanitising, to wearing face masks inside shops and on public transport, applying less make-up and getting ‘Zoom-ready’ for video calls, mean we have had to adapt our skincare regimes to the ‘new normal’ of 2020.

THE NO MAKE-UP LOOK

During lockdown, many people opted for the ‘no make-up look’ whilst they worked from home. This ‘new normal’ of wearing less make-up has encouraged people to pay more attention to their skincare regime to create a natural radiant glow.

Revitalise your complexion with Nourish London’s Antioxidant Multi-Tasking Super Balm (50ml), £32.00. This supercharged, 3-in-1 multipurpose anti-ageing balm can be used as a cleanser, nourishing treatment mask and an intensive moisturiser all-in-one. The formula uses a potent blend of pure, natural plant oils and extracts, including Macadamia oil, Borage oil and Pumpkin seed oil, plus a patented anti-ageing French marine algae extract. The cleansing and nourishing balm works wonders on the skin either as a gentle yet effective cleanser or as a nourishing skin treat.

FACE MASK FRICTION

Whether you are on public transport, out shopping or if it is compulsory for work, wearing a face mask for a long period of time can have an effect on your skin causing irritation or breakouts.

Reduce inflammation and calm the skin with a nutrient-rich face mask, such as Nourish London’s Probiotic Multi-Mineral Repair Mask (30ml), £23.50. This innovative organic and vegan face mask is scientifically crafted with probiotic minerals essential for skin repair. Infused with Damask rose and Lavender, this powerful anti-ageing mask will help to boost collagen, diminish wrinkles and restore firmness. Magnesium helps to address inflammation of the dermis that can lead to acne and rosacea. This skin smoothing treatment also features natural minerals such as zinc (to repair skin-damage), copper (to increase collagen and cellular repair) and iron (to oxygenate the skin) to rejuvenate your complexion.

Relax and soothe stressed skin with a beauty SOS treatment, such as Nourish London’s Argan Skin Rescue (30ml), £34.00. This intensely nourishing organic and vegan face oil treatment helps to soothe and repair the skin. It is enriched with Argan oil to boost suppleness, Abyssinian and Neroli oil to improve elasticity and hydrate the skin. It simultaneously repairs stressed skin, enhances natural collagen and provides protection from further damage.

ZOOM READY BEAUTY

Getting ready for a video call can require a lot of preparation – from checking you have the right lighting, the perfect background and a strong Wi-Fi signal, to making sure you are Zoom beauty ready. 

Keep your skin hydrated in between video calls with a refreshing facial mist, such as Nourish London’s Antioxidant Peptide Mist (100ml), £22.00. This luxurious multi-tasking organic and vegan facial mist is scientifically formulated to instantly hydrate, brighten, protect and calm the skin. Powered with antioxidant Turmeric, Probiotic minerals and anti-ageing Peptides, this invigorating facial mist offers daily skin protection and reinforces the skin’s natural defences against harmful environmental damage, such as pollution and oxidative stress. It contains hydration boosting Hyaluronic acid and Liquorice to help brighten the skin and boost radiance, whilst a soothing blend of essential oils, including Petitgrain, Geranium and Lavender helps to calm the skin and relax the mind.

Make sure you pay special attention to your neck area to prevent a ‘Zoom neck’ – an aching neck caused by poorly positioned and excessive video calls. Invest in a firming neck cream, such as Nourish London’s T.S.L. Tighten, Sculpt and Lift Neck Elixir (30ml), £23.50. This nourishing organic and vegan neck cream has been specially formulated to lift and firm the neck. Antioxidant-rich bioactives and peptides stimulate collagen and elastin production to protect the structural components of the skin and minimise the signs of ageing. Vitamin and mineral-rich Kale and Griffonia extracts protect skin from environmental stress and damage.

HAND WASHING & SANITISING

Regular and frequent use of some antibacterial hand soaps and sanitisers can leave your hands feeling dry and prone to cracks.

Invest in a natural hand wash that is kind to your skin, such as Nourish London’s Lemon & Black Pepper Hand Wash 100% Natural (300ml), £12.00. Formulated with a gentle combination of 100% natural plant-based cleansers and blended with zesty Lemon, soothing Ho leaf and invigorating Black pepper, Nourish London’s 100% COSMOS certified natural hand wash is kind to your skin, but tough on germs and laboratory tested to kill 99.9% of bacteria. Free from sulphates and parabens, this gentle yet effective cleansing hand wash helps to retain the skin’s natural moisture, and nourish the hands leaving them feeling refreshed and gently fragranced.

If you are out and about, make sure that you pack a hand sanitiser spray such as Nourish London’s Lemon & Black Pepper Hand Sanitiser Spray (100ml), £9.50. This handy spray sanitiser features a combination of Ethyl alcohol blended with Lemon, Ho leaf and Black pepper essential oils to sanitise your hands on the go, leaving them clean and gently fragranced.
