Top skin care tips for working from home

Top skin care tips for working from home

Now that so many more of us are working from home on a permanent basis, it's time that we adjust our skin care routine to meet our new needs. 

Here we share our tips for supporting your skin while working from home.

 

For pressing pause on pore-blocking phonecalls

Working remotely can mean that your working day is spent with a phone screen filled with bacteria pressed against your check. This might help you to power-through your workload but if the bad bacteria transfers onto your skin, you may find yourself battling blocked pores and breakouts.

An easy way to avoid this is to conduct your calls using hands-free technology and ensure that you are regularly cleaning the surface of your smartphone. Drinking Green Tea can also give your body a boost of catechins and help the skin to fend-off acne bacteria.

It is also a good idea to start and end every working day by gently lifting trapped dirt and bad bacteria from the skin with our anti-blemish Foaming Face Wash.

Applying our Purifying Coconut Charcoal Face Mask once a week will then remove deep-seated dirt and bacteria from the skin and prevent pores from becoming congested.

We also recommend supporting the skin’s supply of good bacteria by regularly applying our skin-balancing Willow Bark and Prebiotic Day Solution moisturiser.

For when you start to slump

Whether you’ve got a nice little garden office set-up or a more mobile workstation, it’s easy to let your shoulders slump and develop a nasty case of ‘laptop neck’.

This poor posture will not only increase your risk of muscle strain, you could also find that the skin around your neck and jaw starts to look a little saggy.

To help keep your neck firm and supported, practice facial yoga throughout the day and nourish the skin with our Anti Ageing Facial Oil.

A little of this skin-plumping product goes a long was as the Jojoba and Rosehip oil ingredients work in synergy to restore skin’s suppleness and elasticity.

 

For your hard-working hands

Working from home is no reason to neglect your hand washing! Clean your hands regularly and keep the skin barrier strong by regularly replenishing the skin with a moisture-boosting hand cream.

To keep hands looking in top form whilst you type, smooth on our Scent-Free Everyday Hand Cream.

 

For close-up conference calls

The beauty of Zoom and FaceTime calls is that they make it easy to remain professional whilst working in your comfiest pyjamas. If you’d feel more comfortable video calling with a little make-up on but want to keep your look natural and your pores free to breathe, dust a little of our Pressed Powder SPF15 over the skin or use our Clear Skin Blemish Concealer to cover and clear spots.

To hide tired eyes, apply our Firming Eye Serum and a sweep of our lash-lengthening Volumising Mascara.

For the post-lunch lull

Working from home can be lonely and it is easy to fall foul of post-lunch lull when you’re missing office banter and tea break camaraderie chats with your colleagues.

To stop yourself from feeling sad, schedule regular screen breaks and use them take a moment to reconnect with friends and colleagues on your WhatsApp group chat. Or use your lunch hour to get a change of scene and go for a jog or a walk.

Making time for a moment for self-care with your favourite hand cream or skin care product can also help boost your mood.

Our Ultimate Wonder Balm has a permanent spot on our desks and, because it can be used everywhere from your eyebrows to your toenails, it’s great for treating your skin to a post-lunch pamper and keeping that pesky dry skin at bay.

 

For Friday fatigue

Do you need some Monday motivation to get you in the mood for work or a burst of energy to fight that Friday fatigue feeling? Start your day with a natural pick-me-up such as a shower with our Energising Shower Gel.

Once the skin is clean and dry, pamper it with our Pure Luxe Body Oil.
