Our starting routine for the day has changed a lot in recent weeks. While getting used to our normality of not leaving the house, many of us stopped wearing make-up altogether. But for Ashley Graham it’s the opposite! Saying that wearing make-up in times of uncertainty raises her mood and makes her feel right, Graham told Refinery29 how she struggled with the COVID-19 pandemic. Taking care of her two-month-old baby, Graham gave tips on how to have a positive outlook on life.
BE STABLE IN YOUR SKIN CARE ROUTINE
Ashley Graham, who said that she did not wear make-up every day during her stay at home, said that her skin care routine was stable. “Even though I don’t wear makeup every day, it’s important to me to have a balanced skincare routine. I consistently use products such as Vitamin C serums and moisturizers in my day and night routines,” said Graham, adding that he pays attention to keeping certain things exactly the same in times of uncertainty.
DISCOVER MAKEUP STYLES TO UPGRADE YOUR MODE
Ashley Graham, face of Revlon’s cuteness campaign, said, “I drew on personal memories when Revlon told me they wanted to launch a tropical makeup collection. My favorites are travels, shoots and a swimsuit collection. I used many different tones in my collection, inspired by the beautiful tropics and the culture of the islands. I hope these colors will warm people up and reflect the sun’s rays on their dwellings during our time of social isolation,” she said. Makeup may seem like an unnecessary luxury these days, but Graham focuses on the feeling of wearing makeup. Graham, who wore a make-up like a regular day last week, said that it inspired her creative side and raised her mood and spirit. Stating that she wears make-up at meals or image talks with her family, Graham said that adding ordinaryness to uncertainty makes her feel beautiful.
MAKE TIME FOR YOUR PERSONAL CARE
Saying that her two-month-old son Isaac is her priority, Graham stated that the unconditional love she has for her son makes her happy. Graham said, “As mothers, we make many sacrifices for our babies, but at the same time, we need to take care of our personal care for the health of our family.” Saying that he likes the night care routine very much, Graham prefers works that work at night while he sleeps.
BE POSITIVE AND DON’T DISCONTACT
Noting that everyone’s economic situation is different in the health crisis we are in, Graham said, “This is an extraordinary time to check and contact our loved ones every day to see if they are doing well.” Emphasizing the value of hope to improve his mental health, Graham underlined that we will tackle this problem together without fear. “If you can stay at home, please do not leave the house. Everyone is in different conditions and there are people who cannot stay in the house. We are grateful to these people and we should all be in faith, stay home and be healthy by doing our part as truth,” said Graham, emphasizing that those who have the opportunity to stay in housing should be in social isolation.
