Keep It Simple

 

“I warn all of you to not attempt frivolous ‘fixes’ during this time,” she writes. Instead, she’s sticking to the tried and true. While we’re all self-isolating and away from the manicurists, makeup artists, stylists, and colorists that we depend on, she insists that it’s easy to stay sane and maintained. This is why she recommends something which doesn’t involve rent-check caliber face creams, fancy gadgets, or trendy crystal rollers.

 

Life Isn’t Perfect, But Your Hair Can Be!

 

When it comes to taking care of your locks, Stewart’s advice is simple: “Wash your hair, condition it, and air-dry it.” In other words, step away from the dry shampoo, give your parched strands some TLC and take a break from your blow-dryer while you can—your hair will thank you.

 

Treat Yourself With A Relaxing Spa

Hydrate your skin well. Cleanse your skin and moisturize morning and night. Tinted sunscreen is good all day, and lipgloss is her makeup of choice. Stewart also recommends applying masks two or three times a week! And in a Snoop-approved move, she also champions CBD masks and serums.

 

In-House Mani-Pedi

 

“Remove any chipped nail polish and lightly file your nails. Apply lots of rich hand lotion and reparative ointments to counter all of the hand-washing.” This simple formula will help you remain moisturized after all the handwashing and sanitizers.

 

Take Care Of Your Diet

 

Yes, we can make the most out of this isolation and eat all we like. But hey, all the brides-to-be, you will regret not fitting into your wedding dress once this is over. So take conscious steps and maintain your diet. “Watch your diet -baking is fun but too many cookies, Too many cakes -Careful!! Hone your cooking skills Make new salads, try new vegetables, try new ethnic dishes.”
