Working from home is the new normal. While it has its pros and cons, having a daily routine is important to keep you productive. Building one might be a struggle for some but you may start with doing your pre-pandemic routine so you wouldn’t have a hard time as you are already familiar with it. If you’re a skincare enthusiast, skincare is probably a part of your daily routine but if not yet, no need to worry ‘cause we got you! Here are some tips to help make your skin virtual conference call ready:
Step 1: Cleanse
Cleansing is a very important part of a skincare routine. Starting and ending your day without cleansing is like letting the dirt and sebum sit on your face. Meaning, you are more prone to breakouts. Make sure to use a cleanser that does its job without stripping off natural oils and matches your skin type so you get the most out of it.
Step 2: Tone
Working from home doesn’t mean skipping essential skincare steps as it gives you more time to take good care of yourself. Toners help prepare your skin for the next skincare products that you’re going to introduce as it enhances absorption of serums and oils and helps make your skin soft and hydrated. Depending on the ingredients, some toners also help fight off acne-causing bacteria so make it a point to read the labels before investing in one.
Step 3: Treat
Research shows that blue light from the screen can speed up the skin’s aging process and could also lead to pigmentation. While most of us are working from home and are facing the screen all day, we have to keep in mind that prevention is better than cure. So go on and slather some Vitamin C serum into your skin. It’s an antioxidant so it protects your skin from free radicals and repairs your skin at the same time.
Step 4: Moisturize
Most of us might be confined in an air-conditioned room because of the humid weather that we currently have or just for the sake of having that “office feels” to keep you productive. Don’t forget to apply a moisturizer to protect your skin barrier and keep it hydrated to maintain soft and supple skin.
Step 5: Protect
We know that this is everyone’s dilemma and we usually get questions regarding this last step. Wearing sunscreen even when you’re staying indoors is a must as the UV rays can still penetrate the glass windows in your house. You may use sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to keep your skin protected from the harmful UV and prevent premature aging and unwanted pigmentations.
Being at home for long periods can cause us to slack off our usual routines.
