For those of you who get to spend your working day outside and in the sun – we envy you. For the rest of us, who work from an office, we’ve got your back. Whilst the office provides caffeine, a controllable climate and protection from the rain, it’s not the best for our skin. We think this is why you need some office skincare tips, just to ensure your skin is always on top form.
Are Offices Really That Bad For Your Skin?
In a nut shell, yes. You may not know it but the harsh air-conditioning can suck any remaining moisture out of the skin, which isn’t ideal when you’ve spent time on your grooming routine. It also provides you with the perfect opportunity to snack throughout the day, whilst that may seem great, your snack choices may be effecting your skin. We’re here for you – we have a couple of tips to help prevent skin dehydration even in the most frigid air-conditioned environments.
We’ve mentioned this before, but it’s worth mentioning again. Water is essential in keeping your skin hydrated. If you’re feeling dehydrated on the inside, it will definitely show on the outside. Whilst it may be easy to say ‘drink more water’, let’s face it, water can get a bit boring. Try adding slices of fresh fruit to your water, it’ll give it that extra kick. You could even snack on some water dense fruits and vegetables, including watermelon, celery and strawberries.
Top Up The Moisture
Moisturising is key in any office environment. You’re sitting indoors for most of the day, and air conditioning can dehydrate your skin. It’s good practice to top up your moisturiser over lunch, however if this is too heavy for your skin, try a moisturising mist to keep your skin hydrated and fresh.
