The Work From Home Skin Care Guide

by | Feb 17, 2022

If you’ve been working from home since the start of the global COVID-19 pandemic, like many of us have, it’s very likely that you have a little bit more free time on your hands. Especially if your commute to and from work was riddled with traffic. Whether it’s 15 minutes or 2 hours, why not utilise this time to pamper your skin?

Skin Care Tips for When You’re Working From Home

We’ve prepared some helpful tips on how you can take advantage of your newfound free time to improve your skin care habits:

1. Feet First

We’ve all done it before, shamelessly attended a Zoom meeting in sweatpants or slippers. No problem right, as long as you’re still neat as a pin on top? We dare say it’s safe to take it a step further, and give your feet a little TLC. Your feet deserve to be a dedicated part of your beauty regime. You can alternate between a hydrating foot mask, an exfoliating foot peel, and a foot soak. With this combination of treatments, you’ll wonder why you ever neglected your feet in the first place.

2. Take a Break from Work

When working from home, it’s common to feel guilty about taking a few minutes to unwind every so often. However, it’s perfectly ok to take a short breather if work pressures are becoming a bit too much to handle or you’ve had a bad day. Setting aside time for self care is crucial for your own wellbeing and will help prevent burnout at work. Set an alarm for 15 to 20 minutes so you don’t need to keep track of the time while you are busy. Make yourself your favourite drink – but stick to non-alcoholic drinks during working hours. Then grab your go-to skin care treatment. It can be a face mask, hand scrub, or foot soak – whatever makes you feel pampered. We guarantee you’ll feel refreshed and ready to tackle your work with new vigour.

3. Reap The Benefits of Retinol

Given the fact that you’ll be spending more time inside, why not treat your skin with a concentrated retinol treatment? Seeing as your skin may be more sensitive to sunlight for up to two weeks following a retinol treatment, we recommend scheduling when you know you’ll mostly be homebound. If you must venture into the sun, protect your skin against the harmful UV rays by applying a sunscreen with an SPF of at least 30. If your skin appears to be a little red afterwards, don’t worry. It’s temporary. Because retinol accelerates the regeneration of skin cells, a little redness is perfectly normal.

4. Ditch the Makeup

Now is the perfect time to give your skin a well deserved break by going makeup-free. Allowing your skin to breathe by going bare faced for a couple of days a week can help unclog pores. Your skin will also be better able to absorb moisturisers and other products. You’ll also be saving time, not to mention money, by not applying or removing makeup as frequently. Which means you might be able to work a foot soak or body scrub treatment into your routine or buy that hair mask you’ve been eyeing.

I was sceptical about this product. I didn’t think it would work but was willing to try it anyway because my feet need the help. I am shocked that it really works. It works just like it says…3 days after using the booties for an hour my feet started to peel. Within 7 more days, my feet had completely peeled and are much softer and smoother. I definitely recommend this product.

Baby Foot is amazing! I didn’t think this would actually work but after the initial 1 hr application and a few days of soaking, Baby Foot has become my new best friend! It’s easy and effective. I have now had smooth baby feet. Trust me this is one beauty secret that needs to be shared xx

I tried the product, and it works amazingly – to my surprise as I’ve never used a peel that really works. It’s like a new pair of feet. Same aches and pains but soft as a baby’s….well, real soft!

I thought my feet could only get better with the use of a bench grinder. They were awful. I could never show my feet because they were so ugly with the very hard skin, and my heels were especially bad. I was also hesitant because I’ve been fooled by on-line orders before. This stuff is AWESOME. It is the first time in years that my feet look better than that of a neanderthal!!! Thank you so much for a great product and excellent customer service. Very well worth the money!!

We stock Baby Foot in our 4 salons, and we couldn’t be happier! Our clients, staff, and friends alike all LOVE the results and almost all have returned 3, 4 months down the track. THANKS BABY FOOT KEEP THEM COMING!

I tried this product for the first time about 2 months ago. I was very impressed with the results, but still had some callouses on my heels. I did a second application about 4 weeks later and OMG, I am THRILLED with how my feet look and feel. This is an amazing product you have. I have suffered from hard calloused feet for years, have used files, razors, and everything else but was too embarrassed to have a pedi. Now my feet look soft, pink and pretty! I am beyond happy!
