We need to spend hours every day in front of the computer for work and other purposes (read Netflix and Facebook). Now this can take a serious toll on skin. Continuous staring at the computer skin can seriously affect and damage the skin as it radiates some harmful rays. In this post, I will talk about 10 things that you must do to keep your skin healthy and glowing.
1. Wear SPF
Wearing SPF is very important when you sit in front of the screen like that. The sunscreen helps to prevent the harmful rays radiated by the laptop screen. Even if you are working from home, wearing an SPF 30 is a must. Also, keep reapplying the SPF after every 2-3 hours.
2. Take Beauty Breaks
Take 10-15 minutes break in-between your work. This won’t allow the radiation to damage the skin continuously. Also, do a few things can be done by pen or paper, do that instead. Read a book instead of reading a PDF. May be you cannot prevent the damage completely, but you can definitely minimize it.
3. Use a Toner
Your skin gets dehydrated when you work in front of a computer for long. So, using a toner to revive the skin is a must. It is better to use alcohol free toner. Use it before applying the sunscreen in the morning and also in the night after you get back from work. As the skin gets dry, you can also use a hydrating gel on your face as a pack to replenish the hydration.
4. Anti-Ageing Products
Your skin starts to age faster when you expose it to laptop and computer radiation. Fine lines and wrinkles appear faster than they should. To prevent this, you must start using anti-ageing products sooner in such cases. If not all, try to add one or two anti-ageing product in your skin care routine. This will help you to keep your skin younger for longer.
5. Antioxidant Rich Moisturizer and Serums
Your skin deserves the goodness of antioxidants to fight of the radiation damage. Try to use good quality, antioxidant rich serums and moisturizers for the night. These products will pamper your skin overnight and make it glow in the morning.
6. Massage the Face
When you sit in front of the computer for long, your skin gets tired and dull. To rejuvenate it, you need to improve the circulation. Nothing works better than a good massage for this purpose. Use a good gel or cream based product to massage the face. You can also use a roller-massager to massage the face. It relaxes the skin and also improves the circulation.
7. Apply Ice
Applying ice all over the face is another great way to relax and cool the stressed skin. You can directly apply ice on the face or wrap it up in a soft cloth and apply it. This cools down the skin and also gives a soothing sensation. It is an amazing way to combat the tiredness induced by the computer screen.
8. Cucumber on Eyes
Along with your skin, your eyes are also badly affected by this process. It often looks droopy and tired. To calm down any irritation and to relax the eyes, applying sliced cucumber is a great solution. You can also try applying sliced potato. The juices sooth the skin around the eye and helps to remove the darkness.
9. Eye Cream
Applying under eye gel or cream is also very important. Sitting in front of computer can give you dark circles easily. Do add a good quality eye cream in your skin care routine to combat this problem.
10. Eat Right
Keeping your skin ready to fight the damages from inside is very important. Add antioxidant rich foods in your diet. Eat a lot of fresh vegetables and fruits every day. Also, try to drink detox drinks and green tea along with lots of water. This will keep your skin guarded form the damage in a longer run.
