Work from home – beauty edition

April 29, 2021

In recent times, many of us are continuing to work from home. From working your usual Monday to Friday now in bed. You find yourself a bit more lazy and secretly wearing pajamas instead of your usual silk blouse and black pleated pants. With the action of telling your coworkers that you’re in a meeting but you end up scrolling online for the latest beauty products needed in your collection. The uncertainty of when the pandemic will be over is real – assuming that we’ll be working from home for another couple of months (fingers crossed it’ll be sooner!). You then think to yourself…let’s make working from home fun – it’s face mask time!

I give a sheet!

Remember the time when you were younger and collected Pokemon cards? Well now we’re all grown up and you’ve collected face masks instead. With that reminder, you rush to your beauty drawer and see stockpiles of facemasks screaming to be used. It is a quick and easy way to pamper yourself, all while working on your laptop right? So which ones should you use? Well let me tell you! 

Let’s say you had a glass…or bottle of wine the night before. You wake up and it’s 9:00am and you have to rush to your laptop to clock in before 9:30am. After getting up, you look at yourself in the mirror and find your face looking dull and dehydrated. Well, Dr. Braun Miracle Hydro Mask is the perfect product to quickly hydrate your face while you work away. Sold as a pack of five sheet masks, each sheet contains 30ml of solution. Filled with deep penetrating serums and nutrients for the ultimate hydration. It contains Niacinamide, Squalane and Snow Mushroom Extract for the ultimate glow and dew! Other notable mentions are the Skinceuticals Phyto Corrective Masque which contains highly-concentrated botanical extracts to help calm the skin from irritation; and the Complexion Clearing Masque (Formerly Sulfur Masque) by ZO® if you’re face is feeling congested and is in need of declogging of all the excess oil and debris!

Zoom meeting woes!

You’ve been working in your pajamas for the last week but your manager wants to check in on your progress from home so he/she/they requested a Zoom meeting. It’s now 2:00pm and the sun is peeking through your window while you’re dreading to put makeup on for the first time in days. Not wanting to wear a face full of full coverage make-up since you’ll be taking it off once the meeting ends. You want something light and quick to put on. Well Jane Iredale PurePressed® Base Mineral Foundation is a great lightweight oil-free powder that helps with evening out your skin tone while providing you with SPF20 protection. This product comes in an array of colours and contains antioxidants that help fight free radical production caused by sun exposure while being water resistant for up to 40 mins. It’s also cruelty free, vegan and does not contain talc, parabens and all those additional unwanted ingredients! If you’re not a foundation type of person, the Colorescience® Sunforgettable Mineral Sunscreen is another option to add that little bit of coverage while being the only brush-on powder sunscreen recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation.

Get your glow on

While working from home you feel as if you’re on your phone more. From scrolling through Instagram or taking a break from typing all day. You turn your camera on to take advantage of being at home in your nicely decorated bedroom to take selfies. But oh no – you used your whole box of Dr. Braun Miracle Hydromask and your next order won’t come in for another couple of days. You want to make sure your face is still looking rejuvenated and glowly. Well, the first step to a glowing complexion is to start with cleansing. The Gentle Cleanser by ZO® is great for all skin types and leaves your skin soft and clean, but never stripped. Truthfully, I’m on my fifth bottle! Next, load up on that b5! Dr. Braun Miracle B5 Serum is a unique product that stimulates cellular regeneration while containing 5% concentration of vitamin B5 to leave you having that glass skin look! But don’t people say that glowing skin starts from within? Well look no further because Skin Accumax™ by Advanced Nutrition is an oral supplement that contains Vitamin A, C & E and the detoxifying phytonutrient DIM. This product tackles your acne, rosacea and excess oil which leaves your skin looking and feeling like a million bucks! 

So there you have it. Your Monday to Friday work from home has gotten even better. You now feel like you don’t want to go back into the office because the beauty routine now created at the ease of your own home and pajamas is that much more fun. So the next time you work away on your laptop, grab a face mask and give a sheet! It can be exciting and something you’ll look forward to. Therefore, get your other co-workers to join in on the fun.
