Putting on makeup in lockdown has helped women to feel better. Says a study

According to a survey of chain Boots No7, nearly half of the 1,800 of the women surveyed in the United Kingdom, has continued to put on makeup every day, despite the lockdown. 80 per cent of them said she felt better with herself, and 52 percent revealed that they have changed the essential beauty routine in the last few weeks.

This study has confirmed that beauty can give a psychological help, and the cosmetics are a boost to mental well-being and self-acceptance.

“Self-care is fundamental to our well-being, to show our body some love and attention, reminds us how much we are appreciated,” said the psychotherapist Lucy Beresford in an article in the Telegraph reports the study. “Skin care and makeup can play a critical role in normalizing our daily routine and improve our mood during periods of turbulence or uncertainty”.

During the pandemic have emerged definitely two schools of thought: there are those who took a break from the beauty products in favour of a more natural appearance, and who has even increasing your beauty routine by taking advantage of the greater time available. Whatever the choice, the important thing is that it is made in a conscious way, with the intent of feeling better, and not with the carelessness that we want to presentable only for others.

Among the men, certainly more sensitive to skincare than once, but not yet with a beauty mindset perfectly run-in, is overcoming the wild look. Many are leaving to grow the beard in an unconditional way. The actor Jim Carrey, for example, has promised “to grow the beard until we all return-to-work”, encouraging his followers to Instagram to do the same.
