With Singapore in circuit breaker mode, most of us are confined home. But it doesn’t mean we should let our skin down! Here are 7 tips to help us maintain good skin practices:
Keep stress in check.
Social distancing has caused people to become isolated. For some, separation from friends and family can be stressful, and in turn, lead to facial breakouts and premature aging. Fire up Facetime and check on your relatives, your mental health will thank you, as will your skin!
Keep active as you are confined at home, it’s important! Exercise increases the influx of blood flow and oxygen to your face. This improves your skin and helps relieve some of the stress.

Avoid touching your face.
Since the outbreak of Covid-19, advisories have placed a lot of emphasis on not touching your face. Although most of us are confined to our homes, this does not mean we should neglect this rule. Not touching our face is actually a great practice to prevent the spread of dirt and other bacteria to our facial skin.
