It has been a devastating period for everyone. With the total number of cases jumping up vividly in Myanmar, It is very important to stay home and be safe. It’s something that brings boredom to us and we don’t have many options to kill it — watch movies or read books, play games or some exercises to try at home. For ladies, this is also a perfect time to take care of your physical beauty, which we did not have time before with our work, school and other stuff. So, here are some of the home beauty tips that we can try at home for silky hair, glowing skin and healthier life.
Let’s start from the hair, shall we?
Take a break from heat
It is true that blow drying makes our wet hair easier to be styled and it also saves time. But when at home, it is better to take a break from blow drying and let your hair be dry naturally. It will help you avoid the negative effects of the heat damage.
Treat your hair with homemade hair masks
Try out homemade recipes for hair masks from famous blogs. Since they are made with fresh and natural ingredients, it will help you a lot in the growth and health of your hair. Check the following link for some hair mask remedies.
Do not skip your skincare routine
Since there is extra time at home, it is important to focus on your daily skincare routine. The basic steps of a regular routine such as cleansing, toner, serum, eye cream and moisturizer should not be missed out.
Clean your makeup brushes
It is now time to clean your makeup brushes, which you have been using for so long before (and might have not cleaned regularly before). Clean makeup brushes will prevent you from having breakouts and bacteria on your skin.
Avoid nail polish for a while
Take a break from all those dark nail polishes while at home. Cut your nails short, make them healthy with nail strengthener or lemon juice to brighten your nail and remove stains (which I do very often).
Start your workout plan
Now is the best chance to start your workout plan. You can’t go to fitness centres for some period now, yet you can still work out at home and do some yoga. You can watch videos on YouTube or you can also try workout apps. Just try it. You will have glowing skin, increased stamina and even better sleep at night. It will be worth it.
These apps are giving free subscriptions to users for next few months.

Eat healthy food
Try eating healthy food for a while. Snack on fruits and make healthy recipes. It’s good both for your health and your body. Check the link below for some healthy food ideas.
Do not stay up late and try to sleep for at least 8 hours a day. It will be very beneficial for you in many ways — health, beauty and your immunity.
It is important to stay calm and clear your mind during this period. If you have got anxiety and stress over anything, try reducing them with meditation. Stress and anxiety will give negative effects both on your physical and mental health. Just try meditating for about 10 to 15 minutes a day and you’ll feel better.
These are some of the tips that you can practise at home for your physical and mental beauty. I’m also trying some of these remedies to improve myself during the quarantine and hope these help you in many ways.
