The new post-quarantine normal poses many reasons to upgrade our approach to health, beauty, and overall wellness; and with summer fast approaching, now is the perfect time to implement that update. From health care to self-care, so much of our physical existence has been altered by the COVID19 pandemic and the subsequent stay at home order, so getting our wellness affairs in order might require a little extra assistance.
To that end, I’ve gathered a few functional finds, or as I like to call them quarantine EXITsentials, to help with our post-pandemic revival and fill in some of the health & beauty blanks created while we were under quarantine. Drumroll please…
