“I’ve never had a quintal of milk before,” said Charlie, who runs a training business.
But the epidemic happened and you don’t dress like you used to, even to work.
“I was upset with two kids and I was stuck in the house, my husband was gone, so I spent a lot of time outside the house without makeup, and I realized that no one cares,” she says.
Charlie feels that the epidemic has given her the confidence to take on a more natural look. And she is not alone.
Cosmetic use was declining by 2020, but a study of 10,000 British women in the Cancer Research Center showed significant changes in post-locks.
Over the past two years, the number of makeup purchases and clothing products has dropped dramatically, by almost a third.
Charles’s colleagues agree with Reno Safety, a suburb of Cheshire Sandbach.
Director Kate Walter admits that she is working on her nails and eyebrows. But her daily rule is small; A little acne and maybe mascara for a day in the office.
“I just don’t want to look sick,” she jokes.
Although the business is relaxed, Kate says she has definitely noticed a change since the staff started working remotely.
“You don’t have to spend a lot of time on your face, especially since you only look from the waist down,” she says.
“When you sit at your kitchen table, I don’t expect you to be completely makeup and full of clothes,” she said.
Cancer has surveyed 300,000 women worldwide, and according to cost data, British women have made the biggest change in jewelry in recent years.
“Manufacturers are struggling and they have to work hard to get our money from us,” said Catherine analyst Maya Zawislak.
Since 2019, cosmetics sales have declined by 19 percent, but the epidemic is only part of the story.
Ms. Zowski adds that the cost of living could affect what consumers buy.
The cosmetics industry is struggling on two fronts. When the pressure on all of our budgets starts to subside, people are looking for ways to reduce costs.
But the plague has given some women the confidence to try makeup or shave their hair.
Skin care products do not have the same side effects as cosmetics because we drink vigorously after antibacterial gel. And self-care has become an important buzz word in this difficult time.
In general, people seem to be reluctant to spend on things that seem trivial, but to be more happy with what seems to be doing them well.
According to historians, lipstick sales are growing during difficult economic times. Traditionally, this small luxury can be a way for consumers to treat themselves financially.
But this time, the use of masks and remote work has reduced the sales of red lipstick products by 40%.
On the other hand, some people switch to different products instead of buying a little.
“I can buy a little now, but I can buy more expensive products,” said Charlie partner Julie Hopwood.
Julie uses color moisturizers and a little eye shadow. “I think our eyes are more important when we all wear masks,” she said, adding that she was inspired to try new things during the locker room.
Both Julie and Charlie spend about half an hour preparing for work and one hour on weekends. Changes in their morning routine can be spent in the gym or with family instead.
The fun we wear to work began long before the epidemic broke out in many areas. But the outbreak appears to have accelerated, so last month the National Bureau of Statistics removed men’s clothing from a “normal” consumer basket.
In the cosmetics industry and related issues, such as work clothes, fashion and behavior, these new habits will remain or disappear.
Sarah Finn, one, hopes they stick together.
“I was a strange person before, because I did not wear makeup,” she said. “I got up, washed myself, and went out the door.”
Now, Sarah says, no one else seems to be wearing makeup, and perhaps, like her, they decide to go to bed early in the morning.
