Humans spend an average of 9 hours a day in front of the computer. In that time, they’re usually sitting and typing or mousing away on their keyboards. But what does this do to our skin?
Studies show that over-use of computers can lead to dryness, breakouts, wrinkles, and age spots.
Want to have a healthy glow? It can be hard to do. You need time for work and housework. But there are some tips that will help you get back your healthy skin from before:
Drinking water can help you flush toxins from your body with all the sitting and stress that generally comes with working from home. Drinking enough water also keeps skin soft, supple, and plump.
Say No to Junk Food
When you work from home, the food is easy to get, and it is hard to resist eating too much junk food. This can make you gain weight and affect your skin. Instead of eating junk food, eat healthy snacks like fruit, juice, or nuts.
Always do CTM and Apply Sunscreen Daily
Comfort Time Meditation (CTM) helps you relax and can clear your mind. CTM lets you unwind from the long hours at home, where it’s easy to get stressed out. Stress leads to acne breakouts and wrinkles, so CTM will keep your skin glowing without getting pimples or sagging due to stress. Always apply a high SPF sunscreen daily, as UV rays from the sun can penetrate through glass windows, and we often forget to apply the lotion.
It’s not just about how you look, but also how you feel when your skin glows! If your home office has bad lighting that makes it difficult to see, think of getting a lamp with indirect lighting to avoid eye strain. Take breaks from work, then go out and enjoy some fresh air. You can also consider setting aside an hour or so every week for CTM and sunscreen applications in order to keep you glowing!
Diffuse Essential Oils
Essential oils are therapeutic grade oils that have medicinal properties ranging from improving your skin to calming you down. You can use them for household purposes and as beauty products, too! When looking for the best essential oils to purchase, look for good organic quality oil and pure therapeutic grade from a reputable company.
Even if you are busy with a busy schedule, make time to exercise. Doing exercises is important, even if it is for a few minutes or half an hour. Doing this makes the body feel fresh and helps the toxins come out of our body. It also increases blood flow that can help you lose pounds and gives your skin its natural glow.
Working from home can take a toll on your skin, but there are some tips that will help you get back to having healthy and glowing skin. Drink water, say no to junk food, always do CTM and apply sunscreen daily- these simple things will make all the difference in how you look and feel!
If working from home is taking its toll on your health or complexion because of bad lighting or lack of exercise time, don’t despair! There are many ways for you to start feeling better about yourself again.
