Less commuting plus little to no make-up surely equals a clearer, glowing complexion, right? Not necessarily… a dramatic change in lifestyle can wreak havoc with your skin for so many reasons. Aurelia’s brand manager, Antonia gives us the lowdown on why your skin might not be loving lockdown.

Increased worry and anxiety can have a huge impact on the skin. In very simple terms, cortisol (the stress hormone) is not our facial friend. It can accelerate the aging process, exacerbate skin conditions such as psoriasis and eczema and even cause breakouts.

We love: Cell Repair Night Oil (50ml).  The mesmerising blend of Neroli, Lavender, Rose and Mandarin help to relax the mind whilst BioOrganic botanicals help to fight free radicals to repair and renew the skin cells.


For some this will mean missing out on those regular facial appointments, others simply have fewer hours in the day due to the demands of juggling work and childcare. Something super simple, like adding one quick step to your routine can make a massive difference. If you are yet to try a serum (post cleanser, pre moisturiser) – this is the perfect time to give one a go!

We recommend: CBD Super Serum (30ml). One of our newest products that has been flying off the shelves. Containing Hyaluronic Acid to help banish signs of fatigue and CBD crystal isolate to rejuvenate and  improve skin texture, it’s a true customer favourite already.


Some may find themselves eating less fruit and veg due to not being able to go to the shops as much while others may be caught up in a sugary snacking cycle. These changes don’t go unnoticed by our skin either, hence the tired or bumpy complexion you may be experiencing.

How to treat: Brightening Anti-Pollution Mask (60ml). With precious pink clay to detoxify, probiotics to calm the immune triggers within the skin and the anti-inflammatory properties of Arnica it’s the skincare reset button you’ve been waiting for.


Although we can now technically get out to exercise as much as we want (in the UK at least), how many of us are still doing fewer steps than we used to? We’re working from home, getting out less and online exercises classes sometimes just aren’t the same. This can lead to sluggish circulation which can slow down cell turnover and repair leading to dull or dry skin.

We love: Refine & Polish Miracle Balm (75ml). Fruit enzymes help slough away dead skin cells whilst the lightly exfoliating natural rice beads can be massaged into the skin to encourage blood flow to the muscles for a bright and glowing complexion.

We’ve put together an edit of our favourites and top sellers to help get your #ISOLATIONSKIN on the road to recovery.
