Better than going out

Coronavirus has impacted everyone in different ways, but for many of us who are lucky enough to spend days of self-isolation at home, this is a great opportunity to enhance your lifestyle.

Loungewear has never been more popular thanks to its functionality and ability to make you feel well put together, while the beauty sphere continues to cater to those who want to enhance their daily rituals with the latest products. High performance workout gear helps you keep up with your fitness goals, whilst your creative eye can find new ways to enhance your dwellings.

If you’re still looking to invest in undone dressing, result-driven skincare and one of the kind homeware then Dubai-based online store Ounass is here to help. The platform has gone above and beyond to make sure the safety of their staff and customers. They are now offering contactless delivery, all the orders and the vans are cleaned while the drivers wear face masks and gloves, so you can be sure that your cashmere jumper has been handled with the best care.

Below Ounass has shared with us five reasons why we need to embrace the new at-home lifestyle.

It’s good for personal comfort

Tracksuits don’t have to be just for the gym. A top-to-toe matching set is the new must-have for working from home, and a new brand to Ounass, Les Tien, is your perfect starting point. The LA-based label makes everything in-house and treats fabrics before they’re cut to create the cosy feeling like they’ve been worn for years. Don’t miss our edit’s comfy sweats and hoodies, perfectly laid-back for that Netflix marathon too. Loungewear – making you comfy but pulled together, sartorially at least.

It’s good for your skin

Take this extra time at home to treat your skin to some much-needed self-care, giving it the spotlight it deserves. It’s time to go skin deep with a ramped-up skincare regime, avoid makeup and let your skin breathe.

Start by simply including facial massage steps while applying your moisturiser, or introducing a hydrating mask or retinoid treatment. Pay extra attention to your hands as hand sanitisers and scrubbing can dry your skin out. Also it’s time to take a break from gels and acrylics and go back to your natural nails, using a jojoba-based nail oil to moisturise and strengthen.

Don’t forget the rest of your body too, it is just as important as your face. Spend that extra bit of time and exfoliate two to three times a week, always following with an oil or moisturiser. Take the time to get to know your ingredients and shop from our sustainable beauty edit.

It’s good for your wellbeing

Be sure to keep active while social distancing: do yoga in the garden, take part in online streaming classes and embrace meditation. To keep your motivation going invest in a new set of workout clothes, it will help you stick to your everyday routine and boost your endorphins and energy. Exercise is essential for happy physical and mental health, and there’s no harm looking stylish while you do it too. Look out for brands like P.E. Nation and Good American.

It’s good for your creativity

We all need some home comforts from time to time, and with more of us finding ourselves self-isolating at home it could help to make the place smelling and feeling extra homely. Treat yourself to a new set of coffee or teacups as after all, they’ll be getting their work in. Make your at-home workspace look something out of the Coveteur’s photoshoots with delectable fragrance diffusers, Instagram-friendly candles and a striking vase or two. Making your workspace a place you want to be in will help you be more productive and refresh your home atmosphere.  

It’s good for your style

If you’re feeling a bit bored of wearing the same loungewear, then there’s no harm in getting dressed up for a day of home working. Putting on your normal workwear outfits encourages you to get in the right psychological mindset for a day’s work. Dress from the top up with a classic white shirt and pair with some comfy leggings for a conference call-approved combo. Style up your usual comfortable loungewear with a matching coord instead to look and feel business-ready. Opt for a brighter-than-usual colour palette to liven up your day and make all the difference. Because after all, we dress up for ourselves — don’t we?
