7 Tips for Working from Home and Staying Fresh
Whether you’re a work-from-home pro or new to working remotely to practice social distancing during the coronavirus pandemic, something is refreshing about feeling and looking great. This can all be done in business attire or while wearing your favorite pair of sweats. Even if you’re not going into the office, there are still reasons to maintain a healthy and attitude-boosting wellness routine.
So, while meeting deadlines, jumping on conference calls, or joining an online meeting to present updates, here are seven tips for staying fresh:
1. Ease into work mode
What time do you plan to begin work for the day? If it’s 8 am, avoiding having a conference call mark the start of your day. Spend some time in the morning to prepare. If you’re new to working from home, this means you now have extra time to use instead of commuting. Start with a healthy breakfast and other routines that are a part of your lifestyle. This can include exercise and skincare.
2. Maintain beauty routines
There are simple things that you can do to keep up with regular beauty rhythms or appointments that may have been rescheduled. For your eyebrows, consider using the Hollywood Browzer or Hollywood Brow Perfector. These tools are among Hollywood’s best-kept secrets for shaping and maintaining eyebrows. Before you start your day, quickly and comfortably shape and groom your eyebrows.
3. Make time for water
You may start your day off with your usual cup of coffee, but don’t forget to include water. Drinking water is not only good for your overall health but also for your skin. Plan ahead, fill a water bottle, and set timers to rehydrate. Staying hydrated will also help you avoid dry skin. When you choose to wear makeup, you won’t regret staying on track with your water intake.
4. Own the online meeting
You feel confident sharing updates in a traditional office meeting, so why not feel the same in a virtual setting? If you’re temporarily working from home to practice social distancing, know that you will eventually return to the office. Put your best face forward by using tools that will help your face glow. Our Hollywood Smoother offers professional dermaplaning results right at home.
5. Step outside — with sunscreen
Depending on the weather, you may be able to take that conference call on the deck. You could even extend your usual dog-walk routine. Enjoy fresh air for a change of scenery and also a healthy dose of Vitamin D. Be sure to protect your skin from sun damage by wearing a moisturizer with sunscreen. For many people,
fresh air and a sunny day can turn a frown into a smile.
6. Get moving
When you feel great, you look great. Don’t let your work-from-home routine
eliminate movement. There are plenty of exercises to do at home, using common
household items such as towels or canned goods. If you’re a part of a gym, see if
trainers are providing their customers with suggestions for at-home workouts.
7. Stay connected
This advice goes beyond social media. Pick up the phone to speak with a coworker,
saving time between going back and forth over email. If working from
home is new for both of you, hearing a familiar voice on the other end can be
comforting. Video chat with friends and family members to share updates. If there
is a neighborhood community page, check-in with them, too.
While you’ll have many things to focus on while working from home throughout the day, you shouldn’t have to worry about your brows. Learn about other Hollywood Browzer
