Remote Working: Beauty Habits to Adopt Behind Your Screen

After prolonged periods of lockdown, remote working 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 working on our skin.

Remote working can often be associated with a form of laziness in self-care and/or applying makeup. Daily makeup is far from essential; the return to natural with the "no make up" 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 working is also 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 needs them to synthesise Vitamin D. It's not about sunbathing 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 working days, take a beauty break!

The advantage of remote working is the ability to stay at home during working hours. Therefore, it is not necessary to wait for the weekend or evening to carry out facial masks or other quick treatments that you can perform 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 could 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 moisturising & 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 ageing, 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.

When working remotely, we are particularly exposed to blue light as we are generally constantly in front of our computer, with meetings taking place remotely.

To protect yourself from this "digital ageing", opt for 'shield' formulas containing antioxidant molecules. For instance, our antioxidant serum brightens and evens out the complexion, helps combat skin ageing and firms the skin. It contains 3% ferulic acid and 3% resveratrol, a powerful antioxidant that acts upstream (it prevents the formation of free radicals) and downstream (it neutralises 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 of 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 impair the product's effectiveness.

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