Singapore’s “lockdown” measures will be eased soon with many places beginning to open from June 2. Eventually, we’ll be able to meet people again too but it’s important not to get complacent.
To get you prepared, we’ve rounded up a list of post-circuit breaker essentials that every Singaporean will need for the “new normal” way of life.
Finally, we can see the light at the end of the Circuit Breaker tunnel. As of June 2, we can start heading out again. Although we’re restricted to our workplaces or schools and relatives’ homes, it’s a fresh taste of freedom in almost two months for most of us. But before we start flexing our ‘fits and traveling around the city again, we need to make sure we’re ready. And that means stocking up on our post-circuit breaker essentials.
What goes into the post-circuit breaker essentials, you ask? Simply items that’ll keep us safe while feeling and looking good at the same time. This includes sanitizers, creams, bags, and more! Check out our full list of post-circuit breaker essentials below.
Keep your hands clean
The biggest thing we have learned from this pandemic is the importance of keeping our hands clean. So, make sure you have a bottle of sanitizer on you at all times and a bottle of hand soap ready at home. You can never be too clean.
Plus take care of your hands
All this cleaning and sanitizing will remove the oils responsible for keeping our hands moisturized. Keep your hands from cracking with these creams.
We used to rock masks for the ‘fit pics but now we have to use them for real. Stock up on a variety of masks, with different colors and patterns. That way, the mask can be part of your outfit rather than a necessary addition.
Smell good through a mask
Even though we are wearing masks all the time, we have to still smell good. Not just for others, but for ourselves. Here are some scents we recommend you check out.
Rock a cap, don’t touch your head
Here in sunny Singapore, there will be moments where you will have the sun shining in your face. Whatever you do, do not put your hand on your face. Instead, have a cap or sunglasses at the ready. Just pop these on and you are good to go.
Pack it all up
Will all these new essentials needed for our post-CB lives, we will need a bag to carry it all. Here are some options for every occasion – be it a quick food run or a long day out at work
And everything else
There are other items you may want to consider, like a shoe horn so you avoid touching your sneakers or straws that you know are completely clean and reusable. Here are some items we recommend you add to your essentials.
