7 Skincare Tips for Working Women

Working women put in so much effort to take care of all work-related details. Some juggle between household duties and office duties. There is little time left, usually for self-care. The broadest sense organ of our body, our skin, requires special care. However, there is good news! Taking care of your skin need not be a long, tedious process. You can keep it supple with just five minutes of care included here and there in your schedule. We are sharing a few skin care tips that will keep you looking gorgeous all day, every day!

Cleansing

It is a vital step for taking care of your skin. Regardless of whether your work involves travelling, sitting in an office or your own home, you still need to cleanse your skin. Find a cleanser that works for your skin type. A cleanser that does not contain alcohol is best. Cleanse your skin twice a day religiously.

Additionally, you should cleanse when you sweat too much. Beware of overdoing it, though. Lukewarm water, a gentle cleanser, your fingertips, and two minutes are all you need to accomplish this skincare step when you don’t have makeup on. Makeup will require a makeup remover and cotton pads.

Nurture your skin with proper nutrition

Your diet impacts your skin. Your eating habits can affect the health of your skin and also how it ages. Working women have a lot on their minds, and diet may get ignored at times. Eating on the go need not lead to an imbalanced diet that will eventually affect your skin. With just a little extra thought, you will be eating your way to clear, great-looking skin in no time. Make sure to include omega-3 fatty acids in your diet. Walnuts are great as snacks between work, and they also help your skin. If you love eating chocolates as you work, here is another reason to love them more: Cocoa, the main component of chocolates, is rich in antioxidants. It helps skin thickness, hydration, and protects against sunburn. Just remember to have dark chocolates with at least 70% cocoa.

Did you know you could boost the effectiveness of your skincare products with the right diet? For example, a glass of carrot juice can work side-by-side with your sunscreen to protect your skin from the harmful rays of the sun. Carotenoids also help ensure a bronze tan rather than reddish sunburn.

Hydration is imperative

This would include internal and external hydration. Moisturizer serves to hydrate your skin from the outside. You need to supplement its action by internal hydration. This is achieved by drinking plenty of water. Water will also help flush out toxins and get rid of many skin problems. If your skin is not hydrated enough, it will show up lines and wrinkles more. Drink 3-4 litres of water each day. Keeping a water bottle and some juices at hand will help you remember to take in enough fluid during the day.   Using a moisturizer regularly will help restore the essential oils of the skin and retain its elasticity. A lightweight tinted moisturizer for the daytime is the best friend of a working lady.

Protect your skin with sunscreen

If you wish to protect your skin against lines, wrinkles, sagging, and sunspots, sunscreen is your answer. It protects against the premature aging of the skin due to the sun. It does not matter whether your work involves going out in the sun or staying indoors; you still need sunscreen. When you outside, a sunscreen with SPF 30 is best. For someone who stays indoors, sunscreen with SPF 15 will suffice. Sunscreen helps protect against skin damage by sun exposure and also reduces the risk of skin cancer.

Explore the benefits of exfoliation

Exfoliation removes the dead skin cells from the surface of the skin. Removing this build-up from your pores helps the effectiveness of your skincare products. It is essential to exfoliate correctly, or it may cause more harm than good. Your best bet for carefree exfoliation would be an organic exfoliator. People with sensitive skin can also use this type of exfoliator as it is gentle on the skin. Daily exfoliation is also possible with a natural exfoliator.

It should not be taken literally. It just means that layering products on your skin every day is not suitable for it. Skin fasting, that is, depriving it of external products for a short while now and then, can help it normalize innate sebum production.

In your everyday routine, you can switch to multitasking products to avoid layering your skin with too many external products. Multitasking products will also help you simplify your skincare routine, thus saving time, energy, and money. Makeup setting sprays with SPF 50, eye primer that also moisturizes, tinted facial moisturizer (that does away with the need for foundation) are a few examples of multitasking products that not only aid you in avoid the morning rush but also help keep your skin bright and healthy.

Avoid touching your skin without reason

Sometimes, what we don’t do is as effective as what we do. Do not touch your skin without reason. While we work, we tend to subconsciously reach out to our forehead or cheeks out of frustration or boredom. Whether you work at home, or outdoors, touching your facial skin without good reason is never a good idea. As you work, your hands might collect bacteria, oil, dirt, or sweat. When you touch your face with your hands while working, you risk transferring these elements on to your skin. Your skin can take in all of these. Subsequently, we may end up with clogged pores. If you absolutely must touch your face for some reason, wash your hands before you do so.

The tips offered above will take you a long way towards healthy, radiant skin. While developing a skincare routine, you need to take into consideration your work timings and conditions. It is good practice to visit a dermatologist once in a while to learn more about skincare ideal for your skin type. Taking care of your skin is a form of self-love, and you deserve this much.
