When it comes to self-care, there’s nothing like a trip to the spa. But when you can’t get out, there are still plenty of ways to achieve happy, healthy skin. Here are 5 steps to keeping your skin healthy without leaving the house.
1. Stick to a daily regimen.
Consistency and routine are extremely important for our physical and emotional well-being. This includes keeping up with our skin! A daily skincare regimen with quality products can make all the difference in the tone and texture of our skin and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
2. Exercise healthy habits.
By getting good rest, staying hydrated, and being intentional about nourishing your body and spirit, your skin will directly benefit. Simple acts of self-kindness and self-care can go a long way. A walk outdoors (don’t forget your SPF), a cup of tea, fresh linens, or a bouquet of spring buds are little things that can make a big difference.
3. Make your own mask.
Facial masks work by driving ingredients deeper into the skin, infusing your pores and allowing the skin to soak up more product. They deliver an instant pick-me-up for dull complexion days.
This gentle homemade mask is for sensitive skin. It’s also nourishing and moisturizing for dry skin but can be used on any skin type. Your skin will feel baby soft and smooth and hey, it’s something to do!
Moisturizing Oatmeal Honey Mask
- ½ cup oatmeal uncooked
- ¼ cup water
- ½ cup milk
- 1 tbsp pure honey
In a small saucepan over medium heat, cook oatmeal, water, milk, and honey for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring frequently with a spatula or spoon. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Massage a thick layer of plain honey all over your clean face and neck before applying mask. Apply mask to your face with upward strokes. Lie down and relax for 10 to 15 minutes. Remove and rise by using a soft facial wash cloth and warm water.
4. Facials to Go!
From the comfort of your own home, you can recreate a professional facial with “Facials to Go”! Many professional skincare lines offer step-by-step programs for daily care of aging skin. With prescription grade products, you will see an improvement of skin tone and texture and erase fine lines.

5. Virtual beauty.
