Almost 10 weeks into lockdown in the UK and working from home is taking its toll on some business structures and team communications. If like many of us, you are working from your sofa, you may too be experiencing a slump of motivation, as all days in the working week blur into one. It’s a struggle that has had an enormous effect on businesses and the way they are operating, with team members scattered everywhere. The mental strain has been tough on some of us too, with more issues and stressful situations than usual and the inability to switch off at the end of the day.
However, working from home does have its advantages. From the comfort of your sofa, bed, dining room table, or wherever you like to work, you can get a cup of tea without waiting for the kettle to be free or stopping to chat on your way back. You can have your taste in music on in the background, not that awful Jazz Radio station that HR put on in the mornings to ‘brighten up everyone’s day’. Even lunch breaks and toilet breaks you can take whenever you want! But for skincare fanatics, the most satisfying revelation that has manifested from working from home, is the ability to apply round the clock skincare throughout the day.
So, if like us you live for skincare - here are 3 treatments you can use to soothe your skin throughout the day, that will also combat your mental stresses too.
