The recent pandemic situation has made work from home funda highly necessary and popular. It also meant disturbing the existing social routine and taking a step towards an isolation routine. Besides this, the beauty routines of women have drastically changed while quarantining. The air around you, meals, sleep pattern, everything changes and these changes impact the health of the skin. From ultra sparkly and flawless skin to dull and dry skin, it can be anything while you are hidden at home. One of the disadvantages of working from home is that your screen time skyrockets. At this moment, understanding the hidden danger and protecting yourself from the high energy visible (HEV) rays that are produced by your flat screen TV’s, computers, tablets, and mobile phones becomes very important. These radiations are harmful not only to our body but to our skin too. So let’s follow a skincare routine while you are working from home.
1) Cleanse daily
One of the essentials that you shouldn’t miss on doing is cleaning your face before you sleep and after you wake up. Sweat accumulates on the skin and clogs the pores with dirt or bacteria causing acne. To avoid such skin issues, compulsorily wash your face with a cleanser. Another essential that you should follow is cleaning your makeup with cleansing milk before sleep. This is especially important for skin having problems like acne or open pores. Including these in your skincare routine will keep your face acne-free and clean.

2) Exfoliate twice a week
When you work and live in the same room, skincare rituals can help mark the beginning and end of work. It's important to add exfoliation as a skincare ritual even when you're not out of the house. Do this twice a week to get rid of dead skin cells to get velvety soft skin. After this, moisturize your face with a face cream that best suits your skin type. Use the products that have been fetching positive results for you previously to avoid messing up your skin while the parlors and skin specialists are unavailable.
Our recommendation: Aaranyaa Exfoliating Almond Face Scrub is enriched with Almond oil, Walnut granules and traditional Indian herbs that provide hydration and nourishment to the skin through gentle exfoliation. Also try Aaranyaa Charcoal Face Scrub which is made with Activated Charcoal along with Lemongrass and Eucalyptus Essential Oils. Regular use of this scrub will make your skin soft, supple and glowing.
3) Masking once a week
While travelling time has been saved when you work from home, you have some time to spare for skincare home therapy that is, preparing for a face mask. An essential beauty tip after exfoliating or masking is to apply toner on the face. Pour 2-3 drops of toner on cotton pad and gently dab on the face. This helps to close the pores which were once open after masking. This prevents dirt to settle in the pores and cause blackheads. Carefully, take a look at the ingredients that suit your skin type and try a quick remedy to soothe your skin. This is also a good time to invest more in natural remedies that you have never tried before due to time constraints.
Our recommendation: Aaranyaa Rejuvenating Face Pack Turmeric - Turmeric helps clear acne scars and inflammation. It also reduces excessive oil secretion. The unique blend of natural clay and turmeric in this face mask effectively minimizes the appearance of pores thereby toning the facial skin. It rejuvenates your skin and provides a healthy glow.

4) Moisturize daily
Humid air helps to dry the skin more quickly indoors. Moisturizing is the best home remedy for rehydrating dry, parched skin. Moisturizing facial creams complement cleansers as part of a simple skincare routine. This beneficial combination leaves your skin feeling smooth and well-groomed. The best moisturizer should have the right amount of sun protection factor (SPF) to protect your skin from direct sunlight entering your homes during the daytime.
Our recommendation: Aaranyaa Daily Moisturising Cream boosts your skin's hydration, prevents flaking and dullness and creates a protective layer of moisture that lasts all day. The potent formula improves skin texture, masks imperfections and is the perfect base for your makeup if needed.
5) Protection with a sunscreen
Radiations from the screen and sun, both are harmful to the skin. Sunscreens should be included as a year-round preventive health measure for all skin types, be it dark or light. Remember to consider SPF of more than 30 for the skin and 15 for the body. Protecting your skin from UV rays using good sunscreen also lowers the risk of skin cancer. Sun blocks offers many benefits like preventing discoloration and dark spots from sun damage, helping you maintain a smoother and more even skin tone.
Our recommendation: Aaranyaa Sun Block Lotion SPF 40 helps prevent the sun's harmful ultraviolet (UV) radiation from damaging the skin cells and ageing skin prematurely. The non-greasy and water-resistant Sun Block Lotion nourishes your skin from within while Vitamin E reinvigorates and softens the skin.
