Skin Republic Brightening Vitamin C Face Mask

Sitting in the same spot behind a computer screen for hours is the perfect time to give your skin some much needed TLC. I know wearing a sheet mask may not be the best idea when you’re on Zoom calls all day but if you manage to find the time to…trust me it will be worth it. This Skin Republic mask uses antioxidants Vitamin C and E, green tea, coffee bean and rosa centifolia to perform tightening and brightening effects without drying out the skin. It also reduces the appearance of wrinkles – creating a more youthful look overall. Better yet, the mask’s breathable ‘second skin’ allows for faster absorption than typical masks and face creams.

Bioderma Atoderm Hand and Nail Cream

You’re probably thinking, why should I get excited about a hand cream? But once you try it you’ll understand. Over the years our hands usually show our age the most and so keeping them constantly hydrated will maintain its youth. Especially with Covid-19 we find ourselves washing our hands more than we can count which will inevitably dry them out, however, this product really will do wonders for this problem. Unscented, non-greasy and nourishing – there’s no bells and whistles with this product, just simply great for sensitive skin – the perfect desktop product.

Eucerin Intensive Foot Cream 10% Urea with Lactate

Whilst a lot of people tend to moisturize their soles before bed, I think applying foot cream just before I’m about to sit at my desk for a meeting is equally effective. The key to seeing a difference with foot creams is to moisturize when you know you won’t be moving around for at least 15 minutes which gives the product time to absorb into the skin. I personally think most Eucerin products do wonders but this product in particular is just so easy to rub in and makes my heels feel absolutely heavenly in between pedicures. E

OPI Nail Envy Original Nail Strengthener

If you’ve ever gotten your hands on a bottle of OPI Nail Envy, then you know it’s a magical potion that does exactly what it says it will do – make everyone envy your nails. But if you haven’t had the privilege of trying it…you need to! If your nails have been suffering due to the lack of manicures like mine then this product will become your holy grail. Weak nails are no match for this nail strengthener as it uses hydrolyzed wheat protein and calcium to harden, grow and strengthen them. Another thing I love about this product is that it is super-fast drying which, for an impatient person like me, is ideal – especially cos I hate sitting around wafting my hands in the air when I apply nail polish.
