Set Yourself Up for a Productive Work from Home Day!

In today’s ever-evolving work from home environment, it can be easy to become distracted. Many people will be working and studying from home for the first time, and staying on task and in a good mindset can be a little challenging. At PÜR we understand how important it is to have a healthy work/life balance and just because your environment has changed, doesn’t mean your routine has to.

Here are 5 tips to help you develop an effective work from home routine

  1. Wake Up Early

It can be tempting to hit the snooze button and roll out of bed at the last minute but waking up late can affect your routine. Try getting up at the same time you normally do for work or school and take advantage of not having to sit in traffic. Spend this time getting your head in the right space by taking a mindful approach to your morning. This is also the perfect time to set your priorities for the day.

2. Ease into Your Day

After you’ve put on your pot of coffee try stretching or meditating. This can help to set you up for a more productive day by helping to melt away stress and tension early on. We recommend using a face mask during this time to prep your skin for the day. The Blue Agave Mask is perfect for hydration. This ultra-refreshing face mask is packed with our PÜR proprietary Energy Complex of green tea, ginseng and Vitamin B that helps smooth the appearance of skin and refine the look of skin tone and texture.

Or If you are looking to help detox your skin, try our cult favorite Dirty Girl Detoxifying Mudd Masque. Maximize your everyday regimen by adding this detoxifying mask into your skin care routine to help refine the look of pores, exfoliate away dead skin cells and clarify the appearance of skin with a blend of natural clays and soothing botanical ingredients.

3. Get Dressed for the Day

Now, who doesn’t love sweatpants and messy hair? As tempting as this may be, getting dressed, following your normal skin care routine and putting on a little makeup can help give you more energy and motivation. Plus, if your boss decides to do a team video chat you can ensure you are looking your best! Go for a natural look or… if you’re in the mood, glam it up! Now is the perfect time to experiment with your looks!

4. Take Breaks

Sitting behind a computer all day can cause stiffness and fatigue, try stepping away every few hours to stretch your legs or grab another cup of tea or coffee. You can also take this time to go over your priorities for the day, check-in with your team and make sure you are staying on task. Use this time to reflect and readjust if needed.

5. Choose a Stop time

It’s much easier to stay on task when you are in the office but when working from home the lines can become blurred, therefore it is important to choose a time to end your day. This is the time to ensure that you have executed your priority list, check-in with your team and “pack up” for the day. As much as you may want to work all night overexerting yourself can actually have an adverse effect. Your boss and your team are relying on you so make sure you get plenty of rest after your work is done.

Social Distancing? Stay in Zen Mode with a Spa Day in

With everyone practicing responsible social distancing and spending more time indoors, it can be easy to go a little stir crazy (especially for the social butterflies out there). It’s time to get creative with your time at home. Take this as an opportunity to spend time pampering yourself by planning something fun, like an at-home spa day! It’s time to put self-care back at the top of our priority list and PÜR has you covered.

We’ve put together some awesome spa day/night ideas for you, so light some candles, take a deep breath and get ready for some relaxing, at-home me time.

Set the Mood

Creating a tranquil and relaxing environment takes a little preparation.

  • Find a quiet and comfortable area where you can tune out the world and relax. This can be a bedroom, den or large bathroom, just make sure it is free of clutter and as quiet as possible.
  • Light some candles or place a few drops of essential oil* into a diffuser*, this helps to create that spa-like environment. *Don’t have either? Add a few drops of See No More Deep Pore Cleanser to a sink or tub full of water, and let the peppermint aroma fill the room.
  • Play relaxing music. You can find thousands of songs and playlists on your phone, laptop or portable device to help further set the mood.
  • Get cozy! Pull out your fave fluffy robe and slippers or slip on some loose clothing so you can feel as comfortable as possible.

Gather your Spa Necessities

Start by CLEANSING your skin. Based on your skin type PÜR has some amazing cleansers.

  • If you have normal or dry skin we recommend using Forever Clean Gentle Cleanser. Forever Clean gently lathers away dirt, excess oil and stubborn makeup with maximum foam that’s sulfate-free. The clear, vegan-friendly formula encourages a healthier-looking complexion, as it quickly breaks down unwanted daily impurities without stripping the skin of its natural oil… how refreshing! 
  • If you have oily or combo skin try using, See No More Deep Pore Cleanser.  See No More Deep Pore Cleanser is uniquely formulated to deep clean and clarify the look of congested, blemish-prone skin, as it works to help fight against the potential skin-damaging effects caused by exposure to daily, high energy visible blue light. Powerhouse ingredients, like lactic acid and salicylic acid, gently exfoliate and clarifyskin, as soothing peppermint oil instantly refreshes and cools the skin for an extra pampering effect that feels oh-so-good! 
  • EXFOLIATE and slough off dead skin cells, revealing a fresh and more radiant-looking complexion. We recommend using the Purple Pore Punisher. Pores beware! Purple Pore Punisher gel face mask works hard to detoxify the skin while gently removing impurities that often form because of daily stress and pollution. 
  • We love multi-masking so follow up with a hydrating mask. Try the Holographic Hydrating Sheet Mask Set. What it is: A two-piece holographicface mask that helps lock in key ingredients and moisturizers with foil for optimal results.

After deep cleaning, exfoliating and masking it’s time to MOISTURIZE.

Moisture is essential to skin health and as The Complexion Authority™ we have several moisture-rich products that suit your skin needs.

Get in Zen Mode

Now that you have set the mood and deep cleaned your skin, the rest is up to you! Get creative! Give yourself a much-needed manicure or pedicure using butter London nail products.

Or just take the rest of the day for quiet time. We spend so much of our lives on autopilot, stressed, busy running around and never taking the time to care for self. Use this time at home to rest, reflect and stay zen.

PÜR just launched an exclusive, Out of the Blue Collection that helps beauty lovers create endless looks while keeping skin protected from high energy visible blue light.

What is blue light?
While you may have heard the term “blue light” thrown around in the media, understanding what it is and how it affects the skin may be confusing. Blue light is part of the visible light spectrum, which makes up only a fraction of the electromagnetic spectrum. Confused? Don’t be! Visible light is the only electromagnetic radiation that is visible to our eyes and high energy visible blue light refers to the shortest, highest energy wavelengths of the visible spectrum. It comes from both natural (sunlight) and artificial sources, like tech devices. In recent years, evolving research and new revelations have confirmed that blue light actually penetrates deeper into the skin, which may lead to premature aging.

Meet the Collection
PÜR specializes in mineral makeup that serves a purpose…and with evolving research proving that blue light can lead to visible signs of aging, the brand had an idea to create the Out of the Blue collection. Designed with the high-performance formulas that PÜR Beauties know and love, this cruelty-free collection perfects makeup looks from start to finish, making you Insta-approved in a flash!
