The quarantine may allow us to rekindle old hobbies, but many of us are struggling to maintain their self care routines. Manicures and lash touch-ups have been postponed, and getting a facial seems like a distant dream. But what can we do to stay safe and get through this pandemic without looking like a hot mess? Here are five must-have products to keep yourself together until you can visit your favorite salon, spa, or wellness center again.

The Revision Black Mask purifies and soothes the skin with high-quality ingredients like Silt derived from European freshwater lakes. It refines the appearance of pores and deeply cleanses the skin.

Illicium Supreme (Chinese Star Anise)
Illicium Supreme has amazing natural antiviral properties. One of its most pharmacologically important compounds is shikimic acid, which many people don't realize has very strong antiviral capabilities and is, therefore, one of the main active ingredients in Tamiflu, a commonly prescribed medication given in the US to lessen the symptoms and shorten the duration of the flu (influenza).
Thorne Vitamin D 5,000
Vitamin D is essential for bone and muscle health, cardiovascular function, and the immune system. Surprisingly most of us have some type of Vitamin D deficiency, so it’s important to take a supplement. This product contains no lactose and no preservatives (like many other vitamin D supplements).
