How to stay occupied during this stressful time
The new normal is a stressful time, especially when you’re cooped up inside. Finding constant comfort can be difficult when there are so many unknowns. That means self-care is more important than ever! Self-care can come in different forms – from organization and skincare to binge-watching your favorite show and meditation. We know times are tough, but we also know that you are tougher. Honest is here for you and hope these tips help you with some self-care during these difficult times
Organize Your Vanity
We all know how easily skincare and make-up products can pile up on the counter, in your drawers, or on the vanity and it’s super easy to keep delaying any organization. Putting your beauty products away can be tedious but we promise, it is so worth it. Everyone’s different which makes organizing preferences different too! Take a look at this Into the Gloss Post on the different methods of organization. There are several methods for organization for every type of person. Whether you’re a thoughtful minimalist or a project-oriented maximalist (or everything in between), there’s a method for you from the organizing experts.
DIY Lip Scrub
There’s no better time than now to really get your skincare routine down. It may be difficult to get a hold of your go-to products and that’s what DIY skincare is all about! When it comes to skincare, exfoliation is a key step because it removes dead skin cells. Did you know that exfoliating your lips is also important? Lip products may cause build-up so give your lips a smooth refresh with our DIY Lip Scrub recipes. These easy recipes require simple ingredients like sugar, honey and coconut oil. Get ready for soft lips!
Explore National Parks (Virtually)
Help keep your adventurous spirit alive by exploring National Parks. While you may not be able to get out and explore these parks IRL, you can bring the beauty of nature right into your home through a virtual tour! These tours are a great way to bring your family together and really discover a place outside of the home without leaving. You can even use these tours to plan for a future trip to one of these National Parks.
