Remote Work: Beauty Habits to Adopt Behind Your Screen

After extended periods of lockdown, remote work has become widespread and is now part of our daily lives. Many continue to work from home behind a computer screen. What beauty routines should be adopted? Let's focus.

The effects of remote work on our skin.

Remote work can often be associated with a form of laziness in self-care and/or makeup application. Daily makeup is far from essential; the return to natural with the "no makeup" trend is indeed very fashionable these days. Nevertheless, certain daily beauty routines are still essential if we want to continue to look good, even without makeup.

Furthermore, another drawback of remote work is the lack of sun exposure. If you rarely go outside, your skin may become more sensitive to the sun's rays. Even though UV rays are harmful to the skin, it still needs them to synthesize vitamin D. The goal is not to tan for hours, but it is recommended to expose yourself for about 15 minutes per day, in the morning or evening. During these short exposures, don't forget to apply sunscreen.

During your remote work days, take a beauty break!

The advantage of teleworking is the ability to stay at home during working hours. Therefore, it's not necessary to wait for the weekend or evening to perform facial masks or other quick treatments that you can carry out during short breaks of ten to fifteen minutes. Instead of a cigarette or snack break, take short wellness breaks by applying facial masks, under-eye patches, etc.

For instance, you can create one of the following masks.

  • The purifying mask with charcoal and organic nettle cleanses the skin without drying it out, regulates sebum production, and combats blemishes. It contains sebum-regulating nettle, mattifying pine charcoal, and purifying green clay.

  • The peeling mask with organic red fruit acids is an exfoliating jelly that unclogs pores, renews the skin, and brightens the complexion. It provides both chemical and mechanical exfoliation.

  • The hydrating & plumping mask with tremella extract and organic aloe vera provides long-lasting hydration suitable for all skin types, relieves tightness and discomfort, and smooths dehydration fine lines. Its gel-like texture melts onto the skin, providing instant soothing.

Protecting oneself from the blue light of screens.

Just like the sun, the blue light emitted by computer and mobile phone screens could also be responsible for premature skin aging, albeit to a lesser extent than UVA rays. Indeed, according to a study, by infiltrating the dermis, blue light gradually reduces the skin cells' ability to regenerate. However, it should be noted that current studies on this subject are contradictory.

While teleworking, we are increasingly exposed to blue light as we are typically constantly in front of our computer, with meetings being conducted remotely.

To protect yourself from this "digital aging", opt for 'shield' formulas containing antioxidant molecules. For instance, our antioxidant serum brightens and evens out the complexion, helps combat skin aging, and firms the skin. It contains 3% ferulic acid and 3% resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that works both upstream (it prevents the formation of free radicals) and downstream (it neutralizes existing free radicals). The serum has a somewhat thick texture but it quickly penetrates through the skin. It can be applied in the morning or at any time during the day. It should be stored away from light and moisture in a dry and cool place. This serum naturally turns yellow over time, but this effect does not alter the product's effectiveness.

Furthermore, accumulated visual fatigue also impacts the area around the eyes, resulting in more pronounced dark circles. Therefore, we recommend taking frequent breaks to relax the eyes. You can use these breaks to apply patches or treatments for the eye contour.
