How to care for your skin during lockdown

Posted by Melissa Barker on 6 May 2020

How to care for your skin during lockdown: Image 1 Rushing to work, keeping up a busy social life and staying on top of jobs in the house can leave us feeling frazzled at the best of times, but as we all adjust to an enforced ‘slow-down’, many of us find ourselves with more time on our hands than ever. During lockdown, why not take time to do the things you wouldn’t normally do, whether that’s a pampering face mask, a long energising shower or a complete skincare regime. Organic beauty pioneers Green People have created a how-to guide to keep you looking your best.

Deep Cleanse
Take time out to pause, rest and relax while giving your skin a treat too with the Green People Coconut Charcoal Purifying Face Mask. This brightening, deep-cleansing face mask works wonders on the complexion, detoxing your skin with visible results. Activated charcoal and bentonite clay absorb pollutants and reduces the appearance of pores, while alpine willow balances oil production for smooth skin. Gluten-free oat lipid is rich in ceramides to help slow skin ageing, while the organic formula helps to mattify the skin and reduce excess oil.

Skincare
An effective skin-care regime needn’t be complicated and drawn out – just a few simple products will have your skin glowing in no time. Now is the time to get into the habit of properly caring for your complexion and establish a regular routine.

Start with an exfoliation to get rid of dry skin cells, using the Green People for Men No.1 Exfoliating Face Scrub. Natural clay draws out toxins and impurities while bamboo extract and cranberry powder buff away dead, dull skin. Next up, the Green People for Men No. 2 Soothing Shave Gel, a 2-in-1 certified organic face wash that doubles as a natural shaving gel. Soothing Aloe Vera hydrates and refreshes while grapefruit helps calm skin irritated by shaving. Finish up with the Green People For Men No. 3 Cool Down Moisturiser, a certified organic non-greasy post-shave moisturiser. Peppermint cools and relieves irritation after shaving while shea butter and almond oil nourish the skin.

Beard care
Treat your beard to a nourishing treat with the Green People For Men No.4 Taming Beard Oil. This organic beard and facial oil softens and replenishes, moisturising the skin and taming dry, frizzy facial hair. Vitamin-rich baobab and black cumin seed oil nourish the skin and hair while tea tree oil calms ingrown hairs and blemishes. Just a few drops massaged into your beard is all you need for a truly-pampering treat.

Haircare
Itchy scalps are one of the most common skincare issues, especially in men. Overloading hair with products containing silicones and SLS can exacerbate scalp problems. The organic actives in the Green People for Men Itch Away Shampoo will keep hair fresh and clean without irritation. Antibacterial tea tree and pineapple enzymes guard against a build-up of dead skin cells to keep the scalp fake-free. For styling, look to Green People For Men No.11 Texturising Styling Gel. Made with 96% certified organic ingredients, this gel creates natural movement and light hold without any scalp irritation. Protein-packed quinoa, anti-inflammatory rosemary and nourishing B-vitamins work to condition and lightly style the hair.
 
Body care
Without a morning commute to wake up for, treat yourself to a long, luxuriant shower; just a few extra minutes taking time to properly cleanse and rinse will start your day off right. The Green People for Men No. 5 Energising Shower Gel packs an energising punch with fresh mint and eucalyptus oils. It can also be used to cleanse the hair, with pineapple enzymes to gently calm flaky skin and quinoa protein to keep hair feeling strong. Follow up with Green People For Men No. 8 Stay Fresh Deodorant, a pre-biotic packed formula designed to keep body odour under control without clogging pores. Lightly scented with organic essential oils, underarms stay cool and comfy for 24 hours.
