Our tips on how to maintain your beauty regime during coronavirus self-isolation – The Sun

LET’S face facts. All this time indoors can wreak havoc with your beauty regime.

Spending so long at home is giving us “indoor skin”, according to some experts.

I asked Dr Ross Perry, from the Cosmedics skin clinic, for ways to pamper at home on the cheap. Time to grin and bare it . . .

High and dry. Being stuck indoors can leave your skin feeling dry and irritated.

Ross says: “This can happen when people wash less and get out of normal routines.

“Heating and air conditioning also dry out skin.

“Expect to experience dried-out skin and blemishes during this period.”

Try to keep up your usual cleansing routine.

Fresh air can help too.

My tip: I still love the reusable face pads from Face Halo, £15 for three at qvc.co.uk.

They shift cosmetics with just water, so you needn’t spend money on make-up remover.

They can be washed and used repeatedly so are OK for the environment and will save you pounds in the long run.

DIY details: When it comes to facials, Ross advises: “For DIY products, it is important to overuse them.

“Less is more, as the skin requires time to heal and recover between treatments.”

My tip: For a gentle exfoliator, raid your kitchen cupboard.

Half a cup of porridge oats and a few spoons of honey work wonders.

Back to basics: Sometimes the “no-frills” option is the best.

Ross says: “Simple moisturiser such as E45 will suffice during this time.

“More expensive options might have additional active components, such as vitamin C or vitamin A.

“They are often good products but with luxury options, you often tend to be paying for upmarket packaging.”

My tip: Pick up E45 at Asda, currently £4, down from £5.50.
Hands too. My hands have been left seriously dry from lots of hand sanitiser.

Ross says: “If you have a skin condition such as eczema, try using an antimicrobial moisturiser as substitute soap wash.

“I like Dermol 500 Lotion, which is available a pharmacies.”

My tip: I like using products for sensitive skin and even for children.

I like Cetaphil’s range but order their moisturising body lotion at superdrug.com for £8.99, instead of £9.50 at boots.com.

Coconut oil is also a good moisturiser and you can buy a jar for £1.69 at Aldi.

Deal of the day

It has more than 450 different suggestions, free.

Cheap treat

PICK up two jars of Colman’s mustard or other condiments for £1.50 at Tesco.

Reader's saving tip

YVONNE WALKER, of Nuneaton, Warks, says: “The plastic fruit tubs from the supermarket have holes in the bottom and are perfect for planting seeds in. Just add compost and watch ’em grow.”
