Getting back into your work groove isn’t the easiest thing to do after an extensive holiday and it’s normal to still feel a little lost by February. (Yes, you read that correctly, so don’t be so hard on yourself.) We’ve rounded up some beauty essentials that’ll help take the pressure off, ease your stress and actually get you in the mood to arrive at your desk.
Start re-energising your office or desk area by adding scent to the space. You can put fresh flowers, open the windows to get a breeze or pop a diffuser onto your desk. We love this one by Jo Malone London because it has a combination of freshness and white flowers, making any space smell beautiful. The reeds act like tiny straws that draw the fragrance up through the bottle and into the air, dispersing the scent.
A face mist helps to keep your skin refreshed and energised throughout the day. Spritz this one onto your skin when you feel like you need a pick-me-up. It contains marine botanical extracts to revive the skin.
Elizabeth Arden’s Eight Hour Cream Skin Protectant is the ultimate multi-tasking product and desk essential. Use it on dry lips, cuticles and to keep your brows in place. It soothes burns and dry skin. A tube should last you a year or so.
Always have a bold, red lipstick on standby in case of an impromptu meeting or presentation. It’s known to be a natural confidence booster, and a very lucky colour too. A few swipes of Sensai’s The Lipstick will make you feel invincible. And your teeth whiter!
Lavender, combined with bergamot, not only smells sublime, but it’s known to calm the mind too. Take a time out (when the office seems overwhelming) and apply this dreamy hand cream and inhale the scent of the product. It also helps to keep your hands nourished and protected from the office air conditioner, sanitiser and hand washing.
