7 Pinays Share Their ECQ Beauty Routines

Has yours changed, too?
Featured

Ever since the Enhanced Community Quarantine was put in place, we’ve all had to make major changes in our daily lives. Part of those major changes? Our regular routines—including those for our hair, skin, and overall beauty regimens. While some may think this is just a minor part of our day-to-day, for a lot of us, having that beauty routine is a way to sneak in a bit of “normalcy” into our lives during these strange times.

Ahead, we asked seven girls to share how their beauty routines have changed over the past months, plus similar products you can get for yourself from the Shopee 5.5 sale:

  1. "One night, I decided to go through the samples I had stashed in my skincare collection and decided to try them out. I ended up being hooked on the Dear Klairs Freshly Juiced Vitamin E Mask and Dear Klairs Supple Preparation Toner. I’ve had these products for such a long time, but I never got around to trying them out. I finished the samples in a week and immediately looked online where I can get the full sizes. This combo left my skin soft and dewy. Perfect for my low maintenance skincare routine during this ECQ. I think these days, it’s okay to slack off from your tedious skincare routines. The less products you use, the better—especially if they really work!"  – Retty

  2. "I am one of those compulsive beauty hoarders who buys more products than any woman needs in one lifetime. So I didn't really think much of it when they announced the lockdown. Then, last week, it came to my attention that I've run out of two things: Conditioner and sunscreen! I couldn't believe it. We were approaching the long weekend, so even if I ordered online that day, I wouldn't be getting my package for another three days. I rummaged through my beauty cabinet and old paper bags, and I found three sachets of the Too Cool For School Egg Remedy Hair Pack I got from Korea last year, but never had the chance to try. The hair masque was a revelation! I've never tried anything like it. It was perfect for my dry hair—it left my locks hydrated and shiny. And it smelled really good, too! I’ve now added “hair masking” to my beauty routine, and I think everyone else should try it, too." – Janice

  3. "My beauty routine now depends on my mood! Before the ECQ, I used to be very strict with following my routine, but now I've become more lenient with myself. Some days I just use a facial wash, while some days, I feel more masipag and do the whole routine that I used to do. Just having that freedom to choose is nice." – Pam

  4. "Honestly, when the ECQ started, I thought my skin would be okay or even better than ever, because I won’t be going out or wearing makeup often—I was wrong. While my skin behaved for the first week, I noticed that I started getting bumps and breakouts after. It could be from my diet—it’s been hard to eat healthy lately!—or stress from working from home. I decided it was time to try acids to hopefully fix my skin issues, so I tried The Ordinary Glycolic Acid 7% Toning Solution. OMG, I am now a believer in acids for exfoliating the skin! My skin’s texture hasn’t been this great since…ever, LOL. 10/10 would recommend to my friends to try." – Kat

  5. "I’m a hoarder so I always have stocks of my skincare faves on hand. That’s why I haven’t had to change my skincare routine all that much yet. The only difference is that I’ve been doing weekly mask sessions more religiously as part of my lockdown self-care routine." – Maggie

  6. "My eczema has been acting up because of the summer season. It’s been absolute torture for me because my skin has been red, dry, and itchy almost all the time—that goes for my face and body. I’ve turned to using a face mist to refresh my skin as often as I can throughout the day, and I’ve also switched to a moisturizer that can relieve my skin." — Cindy

  7. "To be completely honest, I stopped doing any sort of skincare since the ECQ happened. I didn’t see the reason for using anything when I’ll just be indoors for days. But then one day, I realized my skin felt mahapdi, even if I was just in my unit. Then it hit me—could it be because of the sun?! I like to work near my condo’s window for some ~natural light but it never occurred to me that sun damage could still happen even if I was still indoors. I also read that light from computers can damage your skin, too. Since then, I’ve replenished my sunscreen stash and made sure that I apply it every day! I’ve also added an essence to my routine because a friend told me this is one step I can do to get ~plumper skin. Gotta fix what I can!" – Ysa
