You can maintain your beautiful locks and skin just by adapting to the right skincare routine, which includes choosing the correct products, sticking to a routine and eating right.

So here’s a list of 8 at home beauty tips for you. Let’s have a look.
8 Tips To Up Your Beauty Game
1. Sip on Detox water
The easiest lockdown beauty tip we have for you is detox water. We all know how important it is to consume 2-3 litres of water every day, yet most of us are not even close to the mark. Drinking water removes all the toxins from your body and aids in fighting skin problems. To increase your water intake, having it in different forms can be very helpful. After all, taking care of your skin just on the outside is not enough.
You can add in a lot of different juices in your diet, green tea, lemon tea, hot lime water etc. to increase your water intake.
Adding natural flavour to water increases its vitamins and minerals composition, makes it more tempting to drink and keeps you hydrated always. You can prepare your detox water by taking a jar of water and adding a few mint leaves, lemon slices and a few cubes of your favorite fruit such as orange, watermelon, etc. Let it sit for about 30 minutes so that the water absorbs all the nutrients from the fruits. After that, you can sip on this water throughout the day.
2. Get Your Beauty Sleep
While we are all working from home right now, some of us tend to forget to keep a difference between our personal and professional lives. The ultimate lockdown beauty tip is to get as much sleep as you can.
Sleeping 7-8 hours every single day is extremely crucial to avoid dark circles, under-eye puffiness and dull-looking skin. Avoid working late hours and manage your routine in a way that you can get enough sleep. If you have trouble falling asleep at night, try putting a few drops of lavender or peppermint essential oil on your pillowcase which helps in getting better sleep and reduces stress.
3. Break a Sweat
Staying at home 24*7 has reduced our daily body activity drastically. Working or studying for long hours, sitting at home in one place, can affect our body posture. Indulge in some form of physical activity every single day as it helps you sweat which makes your body stronger, gives you glowing and healthy skin and hair. Walking, skipping, Zumba, yoga, HIIT workouts can be helpful to a fault. There are thousands of videos about the same on YouTube which you can follow for a good workout routine.

4. Cleanse and Moisturize Your Body
We often fail to think of taking care of our body and tend to focus only on our hair and face. To get rid of all the buildup of dead skin cells, use a good scrub and a moisturizer. Exfoliating once a week makes sure your skin is clean and smooth. I would recommend you going for the MCaffeine’s Body polishing range. It comes with a body scrub and body butter. The range is free from all sorts of toxins. The aroma of the coffee is super soothing and also helps in the rejuvenation of your skin cells. The coffee body butter is thick and creamy which penetrates deeply into your skin leaving it thoroughly moisturized. You can easily order it from Nykaa.
One of the simplest ways of taking care of your skin is following the CTM routine twice a day. CTM stands for Cleansing, Toning and Moisturising. No matter what kind of skin type you have, this routine is a must to follow. Pick the products which suit your skin the best and start practising this routine as soon as possible. If you tend to step out a lot during the day, follow up the moisturizer with a good sunscreen. You can also try out the Biobloom’s CTM kit which is milk and apricot based and is also sulphate and paraben-free. It is also suitable for all skin types. The kit retails for INR 1479. The product is available on Amazon and Nykaa.
6. Follow a Hair Care Routine
Following a hair care routine is acutely essential, especially when the weather is changing and we cannot go to the salon to get a hair spa done. One of the best at-home beauty tips is to indulge in personalized hair care. Usually, in the salons, the stylists give our hair treatment according to what they think our hair needs. Personalized treatment is what gives our hair the ultimate salon-kind look. So instead of going for a generic shampoo at home, you can go for a personalized haircare range. Take Freewill’s hair assessment to understand what your hair needs by answering questions about your lifestyle, hair type, hair goals, etc. and get your shampoo and conditioner set. All the products are free from any SLS and parabens.
7. Oil Pulling For a Beautiful Smile
What is more attractive than a sparkling white smile, right? Dental hygiene is as important as the rest of our body. To take care of it, you can practice oil pulling once a week. Not only is it a lockdown beauty tip, but this is something you can follow for your lifetime. All you have to do is, take a big spoonful of pure coconut oil in your mouth and swish it in your mouth for about 10 minutes. After that, spill the oil out. Doing this not only improves your overall oral hygiene but also has great health benefits. It’s also a great exercise for your face. You can try out Cureveda’s coconut oil for this process which is 100% natural and easily available on Amazon, or you can go for any other pure coconut oil of your choice.
8. Improve Your Diet
What goes inside, shows up on the outside. Maintaining a healthy diet has immense benefits for our skin health. Especially if you have oily skin, cut down on fatty and processed foods. Incorporate more nuts, seeds and fruits in your diet such as walnuts, flax seeds, chia seeds, ground nuts etc. which are proven to ameliorate your skin in the long run.
So, these were 8 tips to up your beauty game.
