3 desk essentials every girl needs
With winter in full swing, there’s no doubt your office air-conditioning has been blasting out warm air for weeks on end. While it may make you feel toasty and warm, have you noticed what it’s doing to your skin, lips and hands?
Heated air contains very little moisture, so in turn it draws the moisture out of your skin – especially the parts that are exposed all day. So what’s the solution? Stock your desk drawer with hydrating beauty products to nourish your skin throughout the day.
Try these skin-loving essentials to keep dehydrated skin at bay...
DESK ESSENTIAL #1: FACIAL MIST
No matter how well you hydrate and nourish your skin in the morning, office air conditioning can draw the moisture right out of it. This is where a facial mist is your absolute go-to product, as one quick spritz onto your face will help to instantly hydrate and soften the skin. Jurlique’s new Rosewater Balancing Mist Intense Deluxe Edition 3 contains a blend of rose flower extracts to balance and restore the skin, keep it hydrated, and provide a relaxing rose scent.
DESK ESSENTIAL #2: LIP BALM
The skin on your lips is much thinner skin than that on the rest of your face, and since they’re constantly exposed to drying office air, they’re very vulnerable to dehydration. It’s essential to help your lips retain moisture by smoothing on a nourishing lip balm like Jurlique’s Rose Love Balm as often as possible. It’s also a good idea to avoid licking your lips as the saliva will evaporate and contribute to chapping.
DESK ESSENTIAL #3: HAND CREAM
Your hands cop a beating in an office environment, and heated air isn’t the only thing to blame. Many offices stock bathroom and kitchen soaps that don’t contain very moisturising ingredients, so while they might leave your hands clean, they can also cause your skin to become dehydrated throughout the day. Keep a rich hand cream such as the Jurlique Rose Hand Cream on your desk so you can quickly hydrate and soothe your skin and nails after washing your hands.
