How to Beat an Afternoon Beauty Slump


We’ve all experienced the dreaded afternoon slump, whether at the office or school. According to a report – women look their worst on Wednesday afternoons at roughly 3 in the afternoon – Here’s some new ideas on how to stay fresh from going to mush in that post-lunch, pre-pack-up period:


When you’re at the office, sitting on your chair for 8+ hours can actually misalign your spine and can tire your eyes, fingers and back. To increase blood flow, try going for a walk or do some desk squats. Repeat a few times and you should be good to go!


Yes, you should wear sunscreen even in the office. Not only can the sun harm your skin but so can the UV radiation that emit from the fluorescent lights and your computer screen. Don’t damage your skin, wear your sunscreen.


When you’re dehydrated your skin is dehydrated too. It's easy to forget to drink water when you're doing task after task. Drink your share of water and keep your skin hydrated - no skincare necessary!.


One factor which dehydrates our skin throughout the day is the dry and chilly air-conditioning. Don’t forget to use products with Hyaluronic Acid to help your skin retain the moisture that will be wicked away by the A/C.

Some skincare doesn’t last all day. You can moisturize in the morning and at night but how about in between the day? The easiest way to rehydrate your skin is to keep your BFF “Facial mist” wherever you go. One or two spritzes of our favourite facial mist is enough to refresh your skin and make up, giving your skin immediate hydration and a burst of antioxidants.
