A Simple Skincare Routine For People With Depression & Anxiety

Inatur Mental Health Products Review Mahevash Muses

Fact: People with depression often struggle to maintain personal hygiene. Things that come easily to others—like brushing teeth and taking a shower—are arduous chores for us. Now you might be wondering what’s up with the title of this post, right? If we struggle to do the basics, how can we have a skincare routine?

Your question is valid. However, just because we are depressed doesn’t mean we have to accept a dull, tired appearance as our default. Without using stuff like serums and sheet masks on the regular, it is possible to have good skin. Thanks to Inatur, it is possible to have a quick, affordable skincare routine that will help you look good and feel good.

First and foremost, use this facewash at least once a day. For if you do, you don’t have to use sheet masks and serums for good skin.

The first thing you have to do is use Inatur’s vitamin C and hyaluronic acid facewash.

The bottle  I got is the same size as shown in the above image. And it has done my combination skin a world of good. The potent combination of vitamin C and hyaluronic acid has helped my skin become softer, clearer, and brighter. I am using the same bottle for about five weeks now and I only need a bubble-sized amount twice a day, it’s obviously going to last me for another month. Honestly, I can’t believe how good this face wash is!  Even in this awful summer heat, my skin feels hydrated and young.

I am convinced now that all I need to do to glow and prevent wrinkles is wash my face with this marvel. And use sunscreen, of course – which is first in the line of protection from aging and skin cancer.

The next product I am going to rave about is the Lavender body mist. It smells good and helps me feel less anxious.

Lavender is known for helping one feel calm, which is why as an anxious person, I have long used lavender body washes/soaps and candles. Sadly, they have only helped for a few minutes at most, because how long can I bathe or be around a lit candle?

What makes Inatur’s lavender body mist special is that I can feel calm wherever I am simply by spraying the mist on my wrist. Again, a little goes a long way. The bottle is going to last a long time even though I use it frequently. For the past few weeks, it has helped me cope with mild to moderate anxiety. Occasionally, it also helps me fall asleep on nights when I’m worried due to intrusive thoughts. This body mist is a lifesaver and I am going to definitely purchase it whenever it’s on sale. 

And now, let me tell you about this amazing hair color.

Like many people, the pandemic make me reckless when it came to my hair. For the first time in my life, I bleached it and colored it red (2020), then purple (2021). I did it twice each time and I used box dye. Needless to say, my hair began to look and feel like hay by January 2022.

I wanted to be my brunette self again but I was too afraid of box dye at this point. So I began to look for natural solutions that did not cost a bomb. That’s when I discovered Inatur’s brown henna. Seeing that it was organic and affordable, I decided to give it a shot. It scared me but I did not want to waste money at the salon. Plus, the henna hair color was obviously a lot safer than the harsh, chemical-laden dyes I had used earlier.

Thankfully, it was a good decision. Check out the before and after photos below for proof.

Hair Before And After Inatur Hair Color

To my shock, my hair feels softer than it used to be…even the shine is back!  I was tired of being disgusted by my dull, unevenly bleached hair. Never again am I bleaching my hair at home again! Anyway, my brown hair is one of the few things that’s normal in my life these days. The world is not back to normal yet but my hair is! I highly recommend this color for anyone who wants brown hair that looks natural, healthy, and lustrous.

The massage oil was underwhelming.

Nothing is perfect, and in Inatur’s case, their Narayana oil is flawed. Depression and anxiety often cause aches and pains, so I hoped this massage oil would help reduce my chronic pain. Unfortunately, it did not do much to alleviate my pain. Maybe it just didn’t work for me though, so don’t take my word for it and try it yourself. It’s super affordable and like other Inatur products, organic and of good quality.

Using these products has helped me cope with depression plus anxiety and look more presentable. And that’s all I have to say on this topic. Ciao!
