Working from home is uncharted territory for many, but has become a necessity in the past few weeks. Since working from home can be a challenge, here's a list of things you can do to make your WFH experience more refreshing, effective and fun!1. Stick to your morning and evening routineWhile it can be very tempting to take temporary work from home as a staycation, you should do your best to stick to your typical daily routines. Whether this means waking up early and puting on a full face of makeup or keeping it a bit more casual, it will make you feel much more settled if you keep your routines as normal as usual. Every night, make sure you do your nightly skin care routine and get a good night's sleep!2. Do what makes you feel goodWhile working in your pajamas a couple of days a week can be nice while you're working at home, it definitely isn't good long-term. Working in pajamas can scramble your productivity, sleep patterns, and mental health. Wearing your designated work clothes, doing your hair, or puting on makeup — though it sounds silly — can keep your brain in work mode and you feel more put together.3. Keep a dedicated office/desk space (and make sure it's NOT your bed)Keeping a home office (or desk space if you're hurting for space in an apartment) is crucial to keeping productive while working from home, so lounging in bed while working on your laptop might not be the best choice for your mental health and sleep schedule. Instead, working from a desk, table, or separate room can help keep your brain at ease.4. Create a soothing environmentWhether you're soothed by candles, a spritz of perfume, or Beyoncé, creating a soothing work environment is imperative while you're working from home; there's nothing worse than sitting down to work and being unsettled or uncomfortable. Take advantage of your time at home and surround yourself with whatever is going to make you feel the most productive and at ease.5. Get some fresh airSpeaking of a comfortable work environment, draw the blinds, open the windows, and take a deep breath! Getting fresh air throughout your work day is incredibly important for keeping your brain on top of its game. Fresh air is also very important for keeping skin happy and healthy!6. Schedule dance breaks into your day (and don't short-change yourself on time!)Scheduling and timing breaks are super important to keep yourself relaxed and in the zone. Without breaks, it's very easy to become overwhelmed with your tasks, so get up from your desk at least once every hour for a stroll around the house and go outside at least once a day. Dance breaks are encouraged!7. After work, "go home" — even if you are homeClose your laptop, change your clothes, and eat a good meal. Take time to get into relaxation mode: change into comfy clothes, get un-ready, rest in bed for a few minutes, stretch in your living room, and go for a quick walk around the block. Let your mind settle in just like you would with any other typical work day.8. Most importantly, take time for yourselfWorking from home can take a lot of your personal time, so it's as important as ever to make sure you're taking care of yourself. Take a long shower, do a nice face mask, or even give yourself a nice mani-pedi at the end of a long day. You deserve it.

💥Only Cost $18!! 👉🏻Easy Hair Dye at Home
It’s been a long time since I wanted to dye my hair into blue. When I found that all the hair dye products were on sale at pharmacy, I knew that it was the time to go for it! 🙋🏻‍♀️What I bought: Schwarzkopf Brilliance Intense Colour Crème #91 *2 Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde L1 *1 Some garbage bags to prevent soiling clothes (I can hardly believe it only costs me $18 for all these things!) 🙋🏻‍♀️Colouring process: 1️⃣Put on the gloves, use Schwarzkopf Nordic Blonde L1 first, mix the specific reagent according to the instructions, shake well and apply it to bleach your hair 2️⃣Spread evenly on the part that needs bleaching by hand or comb (I focused on the end of the hair) 3️⃣Hold on for 45 mins, then rinse directly with water 4️⃣Now comes the hair dye. Again, mix and shake it well, and apply it evenly. Here I use two boxes of colorings. For those with longer or heavier hair, you may need to use one more 5️⃣Put on a disposable shower cap, hold on for 45 minutes, then wash it without shampoo but conditioner in the box. Congratulations, you've finished this hair dyeing! 🙋🏻‍♀️My thoughts: Actually, I thought I failed at first because my hair looked black indoors. Unexpectedly, it looks good in the sun in blue and black. If you want a more obvious blue color, you can try Schwarzkopf No. 90 or other blue colors. For me, I am quite satisfied with this~

When shampooing hair, the alkaline ingredients in the shampoo will swell the hair, expand the hair scales, and produce rich foam to break down the dirt attached to the hair crevices. After shampooing, the hair will become rough and stiff. The acidic components in the conditioner can neutralize the remaining alkaline components, balance the HP value, and the hair will become soft. But I have been thinking about a question, shampoo and conditioner must be used in a pair? I mean, must it be the same series of the same brand? I recently bought a new set of Bamford products. This is my first time using this brand of hair care products. This brand was born in the UK, and the whole series are made of organic ingredients. The Geranium series I bought also include body oil, hand cream, sleep spray and so on. The smell is a touch of woody fragrance, which I like. Whether it is shampoo or conditioner, it will not feel strange slippery when applied to the hair. Overall, the experience is pretty good. But I decided to separate the same brand’s shampoo and conditioner. I tried BAMFORD's shampoo and KERASTASE repair conditioner. Let me talk about the performance of this mix. 1. Because my scalp is prone to oi, so I care most about is oil control performance. The effect of using the original suit is the same as using the mix product, and the hair starts to have oil after two days. 2. The biggest drawback is that the scent of shampoo and conditioner are inconsistent, causing the hair to product a mixed smell. It's not very comfortable actually. In summary, the main ingredients of the conditioner are the same, and the effects are basically the same. The difference between the non-matching conditioner and the matching conditioner is basically the difference in taste, and will not affect the effect of the product. Therefore, different brands of shampoo and conditioner can also be used, but the matching products will have a better experience in use. bamford - bamford Botanic Shampoo bamford - bamford Botanic Conditioner

This variety of cream definitely helps with different types of issues. My favorite is definitely the Super good day cream. It's lightweight,light scent and helps keep my oily skin matte. I really like the other creams. Marine Ultra-Rich is a thicker texture. It's definitely needed for colder weather. Pro-collagen & Resurfacing Cream are average textures that are smooth and very creamy. Sometimes they make my oily skin too oily. The only issues are the fragrances in the creams. They are pretty strong. Overall, this is an amazing Collection to have!! Have you tried these products?

I have used Vaseline but lately CeraVe - Healing Ointment and I can’t get enough. I apply this as the last step in my skincare routine at night. I do it a few times a week. I recommend adding petroleum to your routine if you: 1. Have dry skin 2. Use actives or ingredients in your skincare that are drying (for me it’s retinol and vitamin c) 3. You need to heal your skin after a skin care treatment or after your feel you have over exfoliated your face Honestly, my skin feels so hydrated and glowy when I wake up. As we approach the colder months, I know I’ll be reaching for this more and more!
