Women with full-time jobs find hardly any time for themselves to squeeze out of busy schedules to pamper themselves, and women who have to manage both home and work, there’s no time at all! This post is exclusively for women who work in the 9 to 5 shift or longer, so that they can look their best always, without putting in too much effort or time. So, here are 12 quick beauty tips for women working in 9 to 5 shift.
1. Wake up Early:
If you want to look beautiful on your way to office, you must wake up early. Getting ready in 5 minutes may end up being a disaster. Waking up in the morning gives you time to get ready properly. Also you get time to work out which improves the circulation and gives your face a glow. If you get some time, you can also massage your face with a jade roller in the morning which reduces puffiness and gives you a fresh face.
2. Take a Shower and Thoroughly Cleanse the Face:
Do not skip a shower in the morning because you are running late. Taking a shower cools down the body and helps you to look fresh. If you skip this, your skin will look dull and you will look like a zombie. Also, many women skip washing the face in the morning as they pamper the skin in the night and there is no sweating involved. But, you need a clean face in the morning to layer on new products. Use a very mild cleanser like one from Cetaphil. You can also use water and may be a konjac sponge to remove the residues from the night.
3. Apply Sunscreen Diligently:
Using sunscreen is a must that is not just for the sun. The radiations form laptop and computers at the workplace also damages the skin and you need a SPF to prevent that. Apply it before leaving for office and reapply it after every 2 hours. You do not have to spend extra time for this. Do this whenever you go to the washroom and both our skin and time will be saved.
4. Apply and Reapply Moisturizer:
Same thing also applies for moisturizer. Our skin needs some hydration and moisturization to survive long hours in office. Use light weight day cream which will provide both without making the skin oily. If your office space is air conditioned, you will need to reapply this too. Use light, non-comedogenic moisturizers that won’t damage the skin even if you reapply it 3-4 times during your work hour.
5. Tie Your Hair:
keeping the hair open for that long is not a smart decision. It will make you sweat and may cause rashes in the neck area. Also, your hair will be damaged due to pollution and air-conditioner exposure. Braid or bun is the best option for office goers. They are easy to do and there are stylish variations that can be done easily by beginners. You can keep the hair away from your face and also there won’t be any tangle in the hair.
6. Dress Comfortably:
Dressing comfortably is another thing that you must keep in mind. Wearing super stylish velvet clothes to office with raise the eye brows of your colleagues, make you uncomfortable and you will sweat like anything. Try to pick fashionable clothes that are apt for office wear. If you learn a few styling tips, your office wear won’t be boring. Try to use cotton, linen and other comfortable fabrics. Use cotton scarves and stoles to add some glam factor to our outfit without making it too heavy and uncomfortable.
7. Apply Light Makeup
Apply very light makeup for your office look. Do not wear something that will need lots of touch up and maintenance. Use lightweight BB creams, kajals and lip glosses. Use stuffs that will be comfortable for the skin and won’t cause breakouts when used regularly. Replace your alcohol containing makeup fixing product with rose water or cucumber mist. This will give a fresh soft glow to the skin and everyday use won’t cause any harm.
8. Lip Balm is your Best Friend:
Carrying a lip balm in your purse is very important. Our lips often get chapped and dry when we stay in AC rooms for hours. Use one whenever your lips feel dry. At times, lip balms contain products that make the lips further drier and you end up using it repeatedly. Avoid such products. Lip balms from The Body Shop and Kama Ayurveda are great for long-lasting softness.
9. Wash Face with Water:
You do not have to follow a deep cleansing routine while in the office or when you are leaving it. But washing the face with water never hurts. Your makeup will melt away. But, it is ok to have a fresh face without makeup instead of one that looks dull with makeup. Wash your face whenever you layer on the sunscreen or moisturizer or once before you leave. You can also use baby wipes. This keeps your face oil-free and fresh for hours.
10. Drink Water:
To prevent your skin form looking dull and tired it is important to drink water and keep the skin hydrated for within. Make sure to drink at least 2 liters of water when you are at office. Instead of going for cups of coffee and milk-tea, opt for green tea and detox drinks. This will keep the skin hydrated and it won’t look lifeless by the end of the day.
11. Apply Perfume on pulse points:
Spritzing on perfume on pulse points such as below the ears, elbows, on the hand can make the scent last longer and keep you in a good mood through the day. Smelling good is as important as looking good, even if you are at work.
12. Spritz on Facial Mist:
If you are looking too tired towards the end of the day, spritz your face with a facial mist (even pure rose water is great) to refresh the makeup and add a bit of moisture to the face.
