With continued restrictions on group gatherings, dining out and travel, it can be difficult to see the silver lining during this pandemic period. After all, almost 70% of Singapore’s workforce found 2021 to be the most stressful year ever, according to a recent survey by computer software firm Oracle. The survey also noted that markers of success have changed since the pandemic, with work-life balance and mental health being the key focuses now.
Without doubt, our self-care needs have intensified over the past year. Spending quality time to satisfy and enrich ourselves mentally and physically is now the top priority, whether that means meditation or yoga every morning to start the day grounded, preparing nutritious meals while working from home, or a pampering night masking routine before bedtime. At the moment, #skincare and #self-care hashtags garner over 87 million and 54 million posts respectively on Instagram — that speaks volumes about their importance in this turbulent period.
Of course, we can’t talk about self-care and skincare without mentioning Guardian, our comfort shopping destination for all things health and beauty.
