5 Things To Start Instead Of A Diet During Lockdown



Drinking more water

Your skin is an organ.

In fact, it’s the largest organ in your body, and it’s mostly made up of water. Without water, your skin can’t function at its best and can become dry, tight and even more prone to aging.

Getting your daily intake (8 glasses) is truly one of the easiest and best beauty treatments you can give yourself. Will you be ready to get rid of all of your favourite beauty products because you’re drinking more water? No. But you can expect an improved complexion, reduced puffiness, a reduction in the appearance of lines and wrinkles, and a better balanced pH (vital for good tanning!).

RuPaul's Drag Race 

There are some people that we just need to stop and applaud or bow down to upon arrival, and RuPaul fits into that category. Drag Race sends a message to every man, woman and child that you can be what ever you want to be and we’re here for that.

Tune in for the tea, the pageantry, words of wisdom, amazing guest judges, the incredible runways and of course the weekly ‘Lip Sync For Your Life’ episode finale.

Best of all? You can double up on your binge with 13 juicy US series already streaming on Netflix UK and Season 2 of Drag Race UK landing on BBC this Thursday 14th at 7pm!

 

Going Makeup Free

If the very sentence sends shivers down your spine, then that is all the more reason go without your makeup or at least your base and no better time than in lockdown to start.

Do we love makeup? Yes. But it should be a source of empowerment and creativity.

If you’ve gotten so used to seeing yourself with it on, it will feel strange to see yourself without it. And when you do, you mightn’t love what you see. Your dependence may be doing your confidence more harm than good and we want all of our Lusso Girls to feel their most confident in 2021.

Give it a go for 30 days. We promise the time will come and go, work and life will carry on and you’ll be nothing if not comfortable in your own skin as a result. And if you need a little support – try our Golden Glow Face & Hand Mist. A lightweight face mist, infused with antioxidant Vitamins A & E for a more even skin tone and gorgeous golden glow.

 

Daily Gratitude

Perhaps you went to bed last night thinking about overdue bills, lockdown restrictions and the problematic people or situations that you might have to face today or this coming week.

This morning you woke up.

Did you give thanks?

If you didn’t, it’s probably because you forgot that when praise goes up the blessings come down.

By starting each day with gratitude, you are showing the universe and yourself that you are truly blessed and it can have tremendous benefits on your quality of life.

If you have trouble sticking with a physical journal, we love the Five Minute Journal App. Complete with morning and evening prompts, it has the option to upload a daily picture which is amazing to look back through and as the name suggests takes no more than five minutes a day. 

 

Weekly Tanning

Why do we save looking our best for others? Lockdown has suggested, that for many, dressing up and donning a sunless tan was an inconvenience we have been carrying on with all our lives because it was the socially acceptable thing to do.

At Lusso HQ we’ve decided we’re no longer dressing up primarily for others, we’re doing it for ourselves. There are some things in life you instinctively know will make you feel good and wearing a sunless tan is one of them.

There’s no easier way to achieve a flawless and stress free application than by following the Lusso Tan 3 Step Ritual and if you nail it now, then come Spring this weekly routine will be second nature!
