Working from Home? Here’s Why Your Skin and Hair Need Extra Care

Working from home has many perks. You can sleep in a little late, enjoy your morning coffee in solitude, and cut down on commuting time. 

One advantage of working from home is that we are no longer exposed to damaging UV rays and environmental toxins that affect our skin and hair. This is the time to start pampering your skin and hair and tweaking your routine. However, it is easier said than done! You hardly get time to pamper yourself when you’re juggling domestic responsibilities like cooking and cleaning, getting groceries from the market, attending meetings and conference calls, and meeting deadlines. But don’t fret, there are a few simple strategies to master your skincare and haircare routine while working from home.

Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate

Water nourishes the skin cells and flushes the toxins that make your skin look dull and lifeless out of your system. It also makes it easier for nutrients to reach your skin, provides it with a boost of radiance, enhances skin tone and keeps your skin supple.

Drinking at least two litres of water per day will improve the strength and growth of your hair. Hair growth is immediately hindered when you are dehydrated. Your hair strands will break or become brittle if they don’t get enough moisture.

Never skip the basics

Even if you aren’t going out, your skin requires exfoliation and cleansing on a regular basis. Excess sebum, acne-causing germs, and blackheads are all addressed by daily cleansing. Moisturize well- It holds in hydration while also protecting your skin from environmental aggressors. Never skip your sunscreen! After you’ve moisturized your face, apply sunscreen to ensure your skin is protected, even if you’re sitting in the warmth of your own home. Sunscreen also protects your skin from the dangerous UV rays and blue rays that we are exposed to when working in front of our computers.

Pamper your skin and hair

Nothing beats slathering a mask on your face or hair and sitting on the couch. Use a mask at least once a week, whether for your hair or your skin, to give it an extreme burst of goodness. Arrange a date with yourself to take care of your skin and hair. Since we are unable to visit our salons due to the lockdown, make it a priority to pamper yourself. When you use these masks, massage your skin and scalp to increase blood circulation, allowing the goodness of the ingredients to penetrate your skin and hair for better results.

Give your scalp the much needed ‘champi’

Oiling your hair on a daily basis will supply the nourishment that your scalp and hair follicles require. Allow it to sit for at least an hour before shampooing and conditioning with our NO APOLOGY sulfate-free shampoo and conditioner. Choose a hair oil for the targeted hair problem like hair fall, dandruff, an itchy scalp, or premature greying. 

While many of you may not realise it, oiling your hair on a regular basis is really beneficial in the long run.

Fix your sleep cycle

Sleep deprivation is visible in your body. Acne breakouts, poor skin, premature ageing, and hyperpigmentation can all be caused by a lack of sleep. The way your body’s natural hormones are affected by sleep is perhaps the most essential factor in avoiding hair loss too. Sleep deprivation can also eventually lead to stress, and stress has been known to result in hair and skin issues. As a result, it is critical to correct your sleep cycle. Make sure you get at least 7 to 8 hours of sleep each night.
