Many of us dream of radiant and healthy skin, but everywhere we go, there are factors that keep us from reaching this dream. While working at the office doesn’t necessarily expose you to pollutants that can irritate the skin, it can also take a toll on healthy cells.

Skin care is a daily commitment, so it’s always important to watch out for factors that can accelerate ageing, cause dryness, and result in blemishes. On top of that, you also need to follow a few simple tips for taking care of your skin while at work:

1. Use the right SPF solution

As someone who spends most of their time indoors, you may have skin that’s very sensitive to UV rays. This would spell trouble for you if you leave work with the sun still up, so make sure to apply sunblock with the right amount of SPF before leaving home and before exiting the office. Aim for an SPF of 50, which should be enough to protect your skin from the blue light your computer screen emits.

2. Pick an anti-blue light serum

Since we have already mentioned blue light, we need to mention the amount of damage it does to the skin. Prolonged exposure to phone and computer screens promotes the production of free radicals and accelerate ageing, and to some extent uneven skin tones. In place of sunblock, you can also use a serum that’s rich in ferulic acid which is a natural antioxidant well-known for slowing down ageing. There are also serums that can match your skin tone and contain the right anti-UV formula.

3. Use a moisturizer in case of high-stress scenarios

Are you always stressed out in your cubicle? We all know that stress can trigger the premature ageing of the skin, but it can also worsen existing conditions such as eczema and rashes. While it’s hard to take good care of your skin if you are too busy with work, you can always use a moisturizer that can help keep your skin hydrated throughout the day. For this, you might want to use cica cream. This traditional moisturizer is rich with antioxidants such as beta carotene and phytochemicals that fight free radicals and protect skin cells from further damage. Applying some of it on your face every morning and before bedtime should help keep you protected throughout the day.

4. Stay away from toxic materials

Often, it’s not the workload or the gadgets we use that affects our skin and health. According to Bergman Legal, exposure to asbestos can cause a condition called mesothelioma, while some volatile organic compounds can trigger oxidative stress which damages proteins and inhibits cell regeneration. The best you can do if you are in an area with high concentrations of VOC and other toxic agents is to ask for a transfer. You can cite health reasons for this request.

Skin care is still an important part of your beauty regimen, so apply the tips above and make your dream of fairer and more radiant skin possible!
