Martha Stewart shared some quarantine beauty tips alongside her selfie

But first, she warned her followers against attempting "frivolous fixes" to their hair, skin, and nail routines while staying home.

"I warn all of you to not attempt frivolous 'fixes' during this time," Stewart wrote on Instagram. "Wash your hair, condition it, air-dry it. Remove chipped polish and lightly file your nails. With all the hand washing, apply lots of rich hand lotion and reparative ointments."

"Cleanse your skin well and moisturize morning and night," she continued. "Tinted sunscreen is good all day, and lip gloss of course. Apply masks two or three times a week! If you can find CBD masks and serums, use those."

According to the lifestyle expert, it's also important to go outside and maintain a healthy diet while social distancing

After sharing her beauty tips, Stewart advised readers to "watch your diet."

"Baking is fun, but too many cookies, too many cakes - careful!!" she wrote. "Hone your cooking skills, make new salads, try new vegetables, try new ethnic dishes."

She also advised going outside "as much as you can," so long as you wear a mask, gloves, and stay away from other people.

"We will survive this newest life challenge," she said. "I know it is painful and hurtful and difficult, but it is not war. It is a virus. We know what we have to do. Do it!"

Representatives for Martha Stewart did not immediately respond to Insider's request for comment.
