5 Beauty Products That Will Make The Desk Life A Little Less Miserable
It is all fun and games until that afternoon lull hits and time starts to move at snail's pace. With these, you'll get an instant refresh without getting out of that seat.| May 10, 2018
Being seated at a desk while the clock ticks incessantly for hours on end is like standing on stage in silence with a large audience, where time seems to stretch itself out more than usual. There are only that many times that you can get up to refill your cup of water before your boss notices that you’re just stalling.
There are ways to beat the lull. Picking the right table snacks help. Letting your mind escape for a second is possible as well. And, if it happens to be a Friday, allow yourself to be distracted by our weekly newsletter! (Shameless advertising, #sorrynotsorry.)
Then, there are physical ways to hit the “rejuvenate” button, so you look and feel a little more alive than you did 30 minutes ago. For all those times where you need a quick fix before an event, a client meeting, or you just want to be in a completely different mood for an after-hours hang, take notes. Although you’d have to take off your makeup for some of these, these smart products are still time and mood savers.
Dr. Dennis Gross Skincare C + Collagen Perfect Skin Set & Refresh Mist
Face mists are the ultimate mid-day refreshers because they’re so easy to apply, give the most satisfaction and help your skin stay hydrated. This one by Dr. Dennis Gross not only does all that, it’s also filled with antioxidant goodness that will help to protect your skin from free radicals and ascorbic acid for that extra hydrating factor.
Lano 101 Ointment Multipurpose Superbalm
Nothing screams multi-tasking better than this superbalm that will keep your hands soft and your lips even softer. All that air-conditioning in doors won’t do any good for your skin, so coating them with this fragrance-free ointment will help to lock in moisture. Plus, it also soothes other skin-related issues like minor burns, eczema or psoriasis. Definitely worth a spot by your computer screen.
Wander Beauty Carryon Lip and Cheek Gel
Although you could use just about any lipstick as a blusher, certain ingredients, pigments or fragrances in lip products aren’t suitable for the more delicate skin on your cheeks. This one by Wander Beauty is more sheer than pigmented, but is formulated to be buildable. A little flush never hurt nobody.
LashFood BrowFood Aqua Brow Powder + Pencil Duo
Having perfectly filled-in brows is key to achieving an effortless no-makeup makeup look. This one by LashFood has a pencil and powder in one, which makes it so much easier to shape and fill more naturally because of the different textures.
Chanel Le Lift Firming Anti-Wrinkle Flash Eye Revitaliser
To take that extra leap to the boujee side where an intense revitalising session is needed, we’ve actually ditched eye creams for this. It’s that good, and works really quickly and effectively. Is it worth wiping off the makeup we painstakingly applied this morning? Heck yes, anything for smoothening out fine lines and reducing the puffiness. Plus, you can always pop on some concealer back on in a jiffy when you’re done with this. Ain’t no thang!
