Now that we’re half-way through 2021, the novelty of a snap lockdown has well and truly worn off. I’ve been using the down period to spend time with family, get on top of life admin, and look after myself — namely by indulging in my beauty routine.
Little rituals like facial massage have been a saving grace, and proof that beauty can be a force for good (especially as far as stay-at-home orders are concerned).
So if you’re thinking of doing the same, I’ve compiled twelve of my current clean beauty favourites — the ones I’m leaning on during lockdown (and to nourish parched winter skin).

Masking and dry winter air can really take a toll on lips, but this balm-oil hybrid from Ipsum is the perfect cureall. Rich in jojoba, macadamia oil and shea butter, it melts onto the lips, leaving them smooth and hydrated.
Whilst in lockdown, I’ve swapped out traditional heat styling for air drying. I simply shampoo, towel dry, comb a little of this Curl Balm through mid-lengths and ends, and let nature do its thing. It adds moisture and shine while helping to reduce frizz.
A do-it-all skin salve is a winter staple in my household. Rish in calendula, coconut oil and shea butter, I like it on cuticles, elbows and on chapped lips.
Did you even experience a lockdown if you didn’t apply several face masks? Rich in AHA’s, the Instant Glow Mask from Retreatment Botanics removes dead skin and restores luminosity.
RETREATMENT BOTANICS DISCOUNT CODE:
With notes of frankincense, fir, vetiver and grapefruit, this is the perfect Earthy, grounding scent to wear at home. It’s made using pure essential oils and on a base of jojoba, so it’s good for the skin as well.
SERENE BODY HEALTH DISCOUNT CODE:
Lockdown seems to be impacting my sleep pattern, so I’m leaning on this luxurious eye cream from Edible Beauty to de-puff and brighten in the morning. It’s formulated with gold leaf, coffee extract and botanicals to care for the delicate skin.
EDIBLEBEAUTY DISCOUNT CODE:
I love a lightweight body lotion that smells great and absorbs quickly, and this one from Cannabella ticks every box. It’s full of essential oils, making it a lovely post-shower ritual and smells like a tropical holiday.

8. Pod Organics Snuggle Pod Calming Mist
Formulated with chamomile, geranium and blue tansy this soothing mist is perfect before bed, or to calm the frazzled nerves that come with homeschooling.
Made right here in Sydney, Recreation is a really beautiful brand that specialises in clean, plant-based formulations. The Vibrant Skin face Oil calms and soothes, while the addition of bakuchiol minimises the look of fine lines.
A DIY facial massage is the perfect way to boost your skincare routine during lockdown. I love this tool from Ere Perez because the shape makes it easy to de-puff and release jaw tension. I pair mine with an organic face oil.
11. Inika OrganicPhytofuse Renew Avocado Oil Hand Cream
I’ve been extra diligent with washing my hands, so this Inika Hand Cream has been great for reducing signs of dryness. It’s rich in plant oils and butters to nourish without any residual greasiness.
12. Joso Glowso
This TGA-approved supplement is designed to support skin health by increasing collagen production, plus provide vital nutrients needed for strong nails and hair.
