Quarantine is a great opportunity to focus on your personal growth. This includes care regarding your face too and it isn’t too hard by the way. You can include face care in your day to day routine and then it won’t be very hard to practice this on a daily basis. And the results? They are like never before!! Cracked lips, dark circles, pimples, oily skin, dry skin- all of this is covered for you in this post and presented on a platter. So there isn’t a need to visit your salon immediately for face related issues even after the lockdown gets over.
So let’s start with the most common face problems and their remedies.
Here’s how to take care of your face during quarantine.
These make you feel much more terrible than probably what a heartbreak makes you feel. So the immediate cure to this is ‘spot treatment through oil’. It is a known fact that cinnamon, rose, lavender and clove are the fighting agents against acne or pimples. Lemongrass is also very useful. So using their oils is a good choice.
Studies have also discovered that acetic acid and citric acid are also good to go with acne. Do the spot treatment once or twice a day after washing your face with a face wash. You’ll see results soon.
2) Cracked Lips
This is a problem very commonly faced when too much lipstick is used and not removed properly or either the lips are bitten off too often or not taken care of.

Use a good but not so harsh lip balm. Use a lip scrub to even out the lips. Aloevera, coconut oil, honey with sugar, cucumber are very useful. Apply one of the above once in a day and leave it for around 15 minutes before washing. You would see glamourous results if you follow this for a few days.
The popular cure for this is a clay mask. But what if you aren’t really a mask person? Use a mixture of two tablespoons of baking soda and two tablespoons of water and mix it together to form a paste. Leave it on your skin for less than ten minutes. Repeat this just 2-3 times in a week or else the baking soda can cause dryness.
You can also use a mixture of brown sugar, honey and lemon juice and apply this once in a day and you would be good to go.
4) Oily Skin
Honey is the purest natural cure you could ever find on this planet. It has antibacterial and antiseptic elements benefiting oily skin and acne too. Apply honey once a day on your face and leave it for 10 minutes and the miracle you will notice is just wow!
