Wellbeing in the Workplace
A new year is here and everyone seems to be on the January bandwagon - Veganuary, no-meat Monday's and of course, the gyms are raking it in with new membership sign-ups! This is a great opportunity for us and will make a huge difference in people's personal wellbeing, making them feel better both physically and mentally for so many reasons. But alongside healthier cooking at home and all those miles on the treadmill, we still really need to consider our wellbeing in the workplace.

How do I become a gym bunny?
It has recently occurred to me that, although I am yet to turn 25, my body and I are not getting any younger. It’s time to start taking care of myself, and said body, for real this time. And by take care of myself, I don’t mean treat myself to whatever I want food or clothing wise, or to have a pamper night with (insert last months masks) once a week - because I do that anyway.

5 Cruelty Free Products to Instantly Cheat a Natural Glow

Is there anything worse than when the morning after the night before approaches and you glance in the mirror to see a zombie staring back at you? Fear not, I have you covered.

Pixi Glow Glycolic Boost Sheet Mask – £10

If your skin is looking dull, dehydrated and frazzled, always start the day with a sheet mask. Saturated in a glycolic acid concentrate, this Pixi mask works at removing dead skin cells, smoothing out skin texture and unclogging pores. A true hero for revealing an instantly brighter complexion.

This Works Morning Expert Hyaluronic Serum – £37

With 2% Hyaluronic Acid to plump skin and Vitamin C to help firm, this vegan friendly rejuvenating serum packs a punch. Particularly useful first thing on a Monday morning for fighting the signs of fatigue resulting from one too many glasses of wine over the weekend.

Emulsion Wake Up Happy Essential Oil – £17

Enriched with Chamomile Roman, Rose Oil, Ylang Ylang, Geranium, and Lavender, this uplifting essential oil blend will lift your spirits on even the most dull of mornings. This is my best friend for using under base make-up to give my skin a dewy glow that will last all throughout the day.

Glossier Stretch Concealer – £15

Particularly great at covering up a hangover, or for any post indulgence breakouts, this concealer has a rich, creamy texture that erases all imperfections. I’ve repurchased four pots and carry it with me everywhere for touch ups. It’s great in combination with a skin tint, used in place of a heavy looking foundation.

Iconic London Illuminator Drops – £30

If all else fails, a generous amount of highlighter works wonders at giving the effect of healthier looking skin. Just a few of these drops blended into the cheekbones ensures that your skin catches the light beautifully.
