As people adjust to a new way of life, wellness and beauty store Watsons offers recommendations on how to stay strong and stay beautiful during uncertain and different times.
More important than face masks and face shields is keeping our body clean and protected and our immune system strong. Products from Safeguard and Dove not only protect but also pamper skin—especially since frequent hand washing and sanitizing can dry out skin—while Listerine, Oral-B, and Himalaya take care of oral health. Vitamins and supplements from brands such as Enervon, Stresstabs, and Watsons Generics take care of protecting from the inside.
Stocking up on over-the-counter medicines is essential to staying ready during these times. It reduces the instances of going out to buy what’s needed at the last minute. As a safe alternative, Watsons recommends shopping online. Always have a relief for common sicknesses like cough, colds, and fever at the ready, like Strepsils, Sinecod Forte, Vicks, Solmux, and Biogesic.
Staying at home means more time to take on projects such as taking care of our skin. Watsons says it helps keep emotional well-being in check and is a great way to enjoy some self-care and motivate one to reach a personal goal. Brands such as Belo, Ponds, Celeteque, Neutrogena, and Dermaction Plus by Watsons have products that can help keep skin nourished and glowing.
With current restrictions placed on salons, many have tried to give themselves DIY hair make-overs. While not necessarily an essential, a little change can help boost self-esteem, too, said Watsons. L’Oreal Excellence, Beautylabo, and Naturtint offer hair coloring products, while Pantene and Naturals by Watsons take care of maintaining hair health.
“For men, think of self-care as a way to level up your game even during these times, may it be about fitness or grooming,” said Watsons. Following a simple skin care routine is a great way to start. Adidas, Old Spice, and Gillette—available at the wellness and beauty store—offer men’s products to help with skin care and grooming needs at home.
As a special treat to its Watsons Card and Elite members, Watsons is giving free 100 bonus points for a minimum P1000 purchase of participating products on select weekends from July 31 to August 1 and August 14 to 15.
