As we enter our fourth week of Lockdown, we start to adapt to the new way of life. There are multiple routes we can go down – we either become lethargic, begin to take exercise seriously or start organising all the little things in life we never got the chance to do before lockdown.

Most people seem to be a merger of all three types, so we’ve created a small guide for staying productive during the lockdown period.

Explore Different Exercises

Many personal trainers are offering free online classes to help keep your blood pumping and body moving. This includes HIIT classes, yoga and cardio-based training, meaning all you need is a device with a camera, an internet connection and an area to work out in.

Mindful Meditation

Delve into the world of mindfulness and gain a sense of perspective during this time of mass uncertainty. Headspace is an excellent entry-level app designed for home mediation. Meditation can help deal with stress during quarantine

Skincare Detox

Now is the ideal time to experiment and find the perfect product for your skincare routine. As we spend more time at home and our forms of communication include more video calls and even going as far as online Monopoly. It’s never been more important to look after the skin around our eyes when it’s so regularly being strained by screens. A great form of treatment is the Alphascience Eye Matrix. This eye contour restructuring treatment is the first and only treatment that actively restructures the skin matrix of the eye area with 85% of clinical trial participants seeing stronger skin around the eye. To say thank you to everyone putting their life on the line to help stop this terrible disease, our sister company, EF Skin, is offering 20% off to anyone working in the NHS, Social Care, Emergency Services or Armed Forces. 

A Good Night’s Sleep

As we spend more time in front of the TV and less time outside, many of us are experiencing trouble sleeping. In one of our podcasts, our Founder, Esther is joined by her old friend Tej Samani to discuss the importance of sleep and how technology is fuelling a modern epidemic of exhaustion - which has never been more relevant than now. This podcast is full of tips for enabling a good night’s sleep and answers questions put towards our sleep experts. As our skin cells regenerate in the evening, this is a prime time to focus on restoring your damaged skin. You can also create your very own pre-sleep skincare routine, head to EF SKIN for a full overview of pre-sleep products.
