Quarantine Skincare Tips Using Watts Beauty

While social distancing has allowed people to get creative for communications, work, and dining out, it has left many struggling in the self-care department. Manicures, root-touch ups, and other spa related treatments are now in the far-off future. But beauties, that does not mean that you can’t implement at-home treatments, especially when it comes to skincare.

So, if you want to find out what can you do to maintain a skincare routine at home and not look like a hot mess, continue reading!

Stressed Out Skin
We are bringing this up as stress can really have an impact on the skin. Not only does stress cause a chemical response, but it also has a hormonal response, where there is an increase in your cortisol levels (AKA stress hormone). Which, in turn, can lead to a breakdown in elastin, causing wrinkles. And I don’t know about you, but the last thing I want after quarantine is dull, aggravated skin and premature wrinkles to add to my gray roots, that I couldn’t cover.

Did You Know Stress Causes Dehydration?

So, let me get this right; I can have gray roots, wrinkles, and will also become dehydrated? Yes, unfortunately. And if your body is not hydrated, your skin starts to feel and look, lackluster, dry, and flaky and downright old!

Ways To Add Hydration Back Into The Skin
For a dewy, hydrated complexion, you want to make sure you are drinking plenty of water (alkaline water if possible). Even consider adding some fruit to it for an extra detoxification and antioxidant boost.

There are some skincare products, like those with hyaluronic acid, that you want to add to your routine, which we will discuss below.

What are the benefits of hyaluronic acid by top beauty blogger barbies beauty bits and wats beauty.

Hydrate And Vegetate With Hyaluronic Acid
So, while you are on that Netflix binge, you can still be taking care of your skin. Our go-to skincare ingredient during quarantine is Hyaluronic Acid (HA).

Hyaluronic acids are so essential in skincare. Let’s first talk about how it can help with that dehydrated skin caused by stress!

How Hyaluronic Acid Helps With Dehydration
Hyaluronic Acid attracts up to 1000 times its weight in moisture. This means it is excellent for retaining skin moisture, keeping the skin plump allowing for the space that the renewal process needs to continue cellular turnover at a much faster pace for younger-looking skin!

Wait There's More
There are other benefits of using skincare that has hyaluronic acid in it-Antiaging…

You see, as we start to age, our hyaluronic acid levels decrease, resulting in collagen declines, and wrinkles and discoloration become more visible. Maximizing and protecting collagen levels will keep the skin supple, which is why it is essential to incorporate products with Hyaluronic Acid in them.

Product Suggestion: Watt's Boost Hyaluronic Serum

Time To Get Serious About Serums
Serums are a win, win for the skin, especially those that contain peptides, like Watt’s Peptide Complex Serum. Enriched with potent peptides hyaluronic acid, and L-Arginine, this combination is a must for a radiant complexion.

Why The Heck Do I Need Peptides In My Skincare
Peptides form to make proteins, and proteins are the fundamental building block of the skin. Without these building blocks, the skin does not stay intact. Meaning, collagen will break down, and this is when you start to see sagging, loose, aging skin!


The benefits of adding retinol to your quaratine skincare routine by barbies beauty bits

Reveal Radiance With Retinol
Retinol is one of the top 5 age-defying ingredients. To me, if I had to pick one ingredient, retinol would be it as it can offer so much to healthy,  younger-looking skin.

Benefits Of Adding A Retinol Product To Your Skincare Routine
  • Fighting acne
  • Reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles by increasing the production of collagen.
  • Stimulate the production of new blood vessels in the skin, which can help with discoloration.
  • Minimize large pores
  • And my favorite promoting cellular turnover

Do derma rollers work by top beauty blogger barbies beauty bits

We’re On A Roll With A Derma Roller
If you have not heard about the Derma Roller or at least the term "Derma Rolling," then your skin has been missing out. As it is a "MUST HAVE" beauty tool used by almost every skincare expert & beauty blogger.

What The Heck Is A Derma Roller

A derma roller is a skincare tool that has a wheel on the end that is covered in hundreds of fine needles. WTH, yes, I know at first glance this might look like a mid-evil torture device. But once you learn about the benefits of derma rolling, you will want to implement it into your skincare regimen.

So, What Exactly Does This Bad Boy Do For My Skin?
Derma rolling is a form of micro-needling, a technique that involves a series of tiny, very fine needles that are passed over the skin, creating micro-injuries that trigger new collagen and elastin synthesis as the skin begins to repair itself naturally.

Used regularly, Derma Rollers can help to...
  • Improve the appearance of fine lines and deep wrinkles
  • Even out your skin tone
  • Reduce the appearance of pores
  • Smooth and plumps the skin
  • Diminish acne scars
  • When used in conjunction with Watt’s Peptide Complex Serum, it boosts the absorption of vital ingredients up to 90%.
Does Size Matter?
Yes, size does matter when it comes to Derma Rollers. Watts Beauty offers a variety of sizes as each size addresses specific skin concerns and areas of the face and body.

The size YOU need depends on your SKIN CONCERNS and the area in which you will be using the Derma Roller such as, are you Derma Rolling your FACE or BODY?

Top 6 Benefits Of Lavender Water


Top 6 Benefits Of Lavender Water By Barbies Beauty Bits

So, what is up with lavender water? I'll tell you what's up; it is has become my secret weapon for my skin while being quarantined and supplementing my beauty regimen with products that have multiple uses.

What Is Lavender Water Used For? The origin and history of floral waters are nothing new. Did you know that ''Lavender'' comes from the Latin word “lavere,” which means "to wash."  The use of lavender water can be linked back to ancient Thrace as nature was people’s answer to grace and beauty. It still is now with its purity and perfection in beauty products.

The many benefits of lavender water for the skin and hair by barbies beauty bits

One product I've been using these past few weeks is Thracian Bio Lavender Water, made from steam-distilled premium lavender blossoms, with nothing else added.


Thracian Bio Lavender Water is 100% pure essence of premium lavender from the highest oil-producing lavender blossoms in the world, Bulgarian lavender. Bulgaria has overtaken France as the world's largest producer of lavender and is famous for its lavender plantations!

Lavender is not only fantastic for the skin and hair, but it has plenty of health benefits, including being therapeutic and detoxifying.

And beauties, that's not all it can do! Check out some more benefits on why lavender water is a secret weapon to glowing, radiant skin and healthy hair.

Imagine a beauty product that can do it all!
The Many Benefits Of Using Lavender Water
Lavender Water Acts As A Toner
A toner is that in-between skincare step that a lot of people forget to include in their skincare routine. But trust me, adding a toner to your skincare regime is a must. Not only does lavender rebalance and hydrate the skin. It is excellent at removing any stubborn dirt or leftover makeup after cleansing, leaving your skin ready to absorb your other skincare products.

Minimizes Enlarged Pores
When the skin produces too much oil, it can mix with dead skin cells and dirt in a pore. This oil and dead skin get trapped, causing the pore to become inflamed.  Lavender water is very effective at exfoliating the dead skin cells, unclogging, leaving your complexion tightened and radiant.

The Many Benefits Of Using Lavender Water By Barbies Beauty Bits

Lavender Is Rich Of Vitamins And Minerals
Lavender is a source of vitamin A, helping to speed up healing and supporting the skin's immune system. This means its anti-inflammatory and antiseptic properties are excellent for acne-prone skin.  It has some other significant calming effects on the skin like reducing redness while fighting and preventing further skin irritations.

Most Popular Anti-aging Herb

Our skin is continuously exposed to tons of environmental factors that are harmful to our complexion, preventing cellular turnover. Aggressors like UV rays, dirt, pollution, even makeup can settle into our pores, dulling our skin's radiance. But lavender is here to the rescue as it contains powerful antioxidants to fight free radicals that can lead to premature aging, including a loss of collagen and wrinkles.

The benefits lavender has on the hair by barbies beauty bits

Helps To Achieve Healthy Hair
Lavender has amazing antiseptic properties that aid with a dry, itchy scalp. If you have oily hair, it will keep the production of sebum in check. On the hair itself, lavender water restores, moisturizes, and softens dull, dry hair.

Lavender improves blood circulation, which is why some people use it to give their hair that extra boost towards growth and thickness.
