Work from Home Beauty Tips to Make You Feel Your Best During Quaratine
Just because you may be working from home now, doesn’t mean you can’t spend some time making yourself look and feel beautiful before you start your day. With the entire world on pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic, our lives have seemingly been thrown upside-down, making it all that more important to invest in self-care. With that in mind, here are some skincare and makeup tips that will help you put your best face forward while working from home.
Take a good look at your skin.
Before you can even start on developing a skincare regime, you’ll want to take a good look at your skin and evaluate what is going on. Your skin is your body’s largest organ, and it is full of clues about your diet, sleeping habits, level of stress, and anything else that may be going on in your body. Skin goes through stages of cell renewal, so keep a note of how your skin feels and looks over a weeklong period. Then once you have an idea of what your main concerns and problems are, you’ll be better able to decide what you want to accomplish with your skincare routine.
Use sunscreen daily.
Even though you may not go outside as frequently as you are used to, your skin will still be exposed to the sun from your home. So make it a habit to put sunscreen on every day, especially if you are working next to a window! But make sure you use different formulas for your face and for the rest of your body; general sunscreen for your body can clog your pores, causing more breakouts.
Develop an easy makeup routine.
There’s no need to wear a full face of heavy makeup during the day, but if you want to still look refreshed and made-up, there are some great options for you. Instead of a full coverage foundation, choose a tinted moisturizer and a spot concealer. Or, instead of heavy eyeshadow and thick eyeliner, pick magnetic eyeliner and lengthening mascara. Fill in any bare spots on your eyebrows, add a moisturizing gloss, and you’ll be ready to face the day in no time at all.
Mask during meetings.
Your skincare regime doesn’t have to stop when you start work; the perks of working from home can be that you take some time for self-care throughout the day! So next time you’re in a meeting that could have been an email, turn off your camera and put on a face mask. There are plenty of different options to choose from, from hydrating to purifying, and just a few moments of caring for yourself will make you feel refreshed and renewed in no time at all. There’s no such thing as too many face masks, so feel free to have fun and experiment.
Let your hair do its thing.
Constantly blow-drying and heat styling your hair can be detrimental to its curl pattern, texture, and growth. So why not ditch the heat tools altogether and let your hair air dry and do its own thing? There’s no need to have your hair look extremely perfect for those zoom meetings, and who knows, you may fall in love with what your hair looks like air-dried! For an extra boost, you can choose specific styling products that are meant for air drying to give a little extra bounce and hold. Additionally, if you want to invest a bit extra in your hair, choose a hair, skin, and nails vitamin to give your body the nutrients it needs to grow healthy hair.
The best part of a quarantine beauty routine is that you can be creative and have fun! With these tips in mind, invest in some self-care in the upcoming weeks and you’ll feel refreshed and beautiful in no time at all.
