Most of us may be plagued with skin concerns, but do not have the time for a whole skincare routine, especially for those who are working from home.
Well, all you need is 10 minutes for Innisfree’s Volcanic Colour Clay Mask to help you bid your skin woes goodbye. Although traditional clay masks are for those with oily skin, Innisfree’s multifunction range comes in seven different colours which address different skin problems from acne-prone skin to dull and ageing skin.
Tip: While letting the mask work its magic, place two slices of cucumbers over your eyes as they help to reduce dark circles and puffiness.

Considered the holy grail of skincare products with its 4.7/5 star rating on Sephora out of close to 3,000 reviews, The Ordinary Peeling Solution is an exfoliating solution that fights visible blemishes and delivers that extra glow by getting rid of dullness and uneven skin texture.
Said to be as effective as a 10-minute exfoliating facial, this will definitely help you get rid of dead skin and acne to maintain radiant and healthy-looking skin until you can make your way to an actual facial.
Note: It is normal for your skin to sting a bit, but if its effects are too harsh on your skin, do wash the product off immediately.

Resting on our laurels and not making good on our gym memberships during this CB period can leave some of us with a serious cellulite situation on our legs. And while exercise is usually the foolproof cure for this predicament, a coffee scrub like Bean Body’s Coconut Coffee Bean Scrub will aid the process along.
Caffeine helps to stimulate blood flow, while coconut oil hydrates and moisturises, leaving your skin feeling soft and smooth. For caffeine addicts, it’s a bonus that this body scrub smells just like the one thing you can’t live without. But even if you don’t like the smell of a cuppa, don’t worry, the fragrance will wear off after you rinse off, so you won’t be smelling like coffee all day.
