How to Glow Up During Lockdown

With lockdown 3.0 officially in full swing, isn’t it fair to say that we’re all, well, struggling? I mean, if you’re anything like us, our life (mostly) consists of scrolling through Twitter memes and TikTok every 10 mins - because, er, have you seen the weather outside? Sure, our methods of self-care may have changed since last year in that we’re not sitting in the garden drinking gin at 3pm, but the good news is that it’s still possible to glow up during a winter lockdown. So what is a glow up and how can you have a glow up in the middle of a pandemic? Well, that’s kind of where we come in. A glow up is a physical transformation. This could be anything from sporting a dramatic new hair ‘do, to getting absolutely snatched. Keen to find out how to glow up during lockdown? Whether you’re committed to embracing your very own glow up challenge or you simply want a few glow up tips to help you slay hard when lockdown’s over, we’ve got you. Check out our top ways to glow up in our latest go-to guide. Don’t forget to snap and save our glow up checklist and get ready to grow your glow up arsenal.

1. Daily Walk

Walking has proven time and time again to have multiple benefits for the body; from increasing general fitness, to reducing stress. Getting in a daily walk may not seem like one of the best glow up ideas for a drastic transformation, but it’s a simple way to get started. Whilst it may be tempting to binge your way through your favourite Netflix series and order Just Eat, looking after your mental and physical health during lockdown - and any other time - is absolutely vital. Remember, a glow up isn’t always about changing what’s on the outside, it’s about glowing from within, too. 

2. Cook Your Own Meals

Lucky enough to love cooking? Or do you absolutely hate the thought of struggling by a stove? Either way, the popular phrase ‘you are what you eat’ couldn’t be more true, and with plenty of time on your hands, now is the perfect opportunity to work on your culinary skills. Following easy online recipes on Youtube or Instagram allows you to not only save money on food, but can also give you control over what you’re putting into your body. Because once you start eating good, you feel good, girl! Easy yet effective, this is one of our favourite glow up tips.

3. Start a Skincare Routine

If you’re wondering how to glow up in a week, we hear you. Whilst we know that miracles don’t happen overnight, a good skin care routine can help you seriously glow in such a short amount of time. With numerous tutorials taking TikTok and Insta Reels by storm, we are all about prioritising skincare as one of our must-have ways to glow up. Whether you’re a beginner or more advanced, there’s truly no nicer feeling than when you totally boss your beauty regime. And let’s be honest, what could be more satisfying than that natural glow from applying your last serum? Insta-worthy without a filter in sight!   

4. Drink More Water

PLEASE. If there are any glow up tips to take away from this article it’s to drink more water - seriously! You may have a killer skincare routine, but what’s the point if you’re naturally dehydrating AF? Water has a multitude of benefits and can really help your glow up hit differently. Contributing towards a healthier skin and complexion, a glow up is honestly not as expensive as you think. 

5. Get Dressed

Sorry, are we starting to touch a nerve? Your ex-boyfriend’s hoodie may be the comfiest thing you own, but did you even wash it this week? We’re all guilty of throwing on something a lil more, well, comfy, but that is really not likely to motivate you. Instead of wearing your gym wear when you’re not exercising, why not try grabbing some new loungewear in bright shades? It’s a fact that when you look good, you feel good, which is why we recommend getting dressed for the day, even if Zoom meetings are the only thing on the agenda. So whether it’s something as small as investing in a new hoodie or sweater set, or having a day dedicated to snapping pics for your ‘gram, simply getting dressed can totally level up your mood. If you were wondering how to glow up over night, then please get dressed!
