Singapore is a nation of air-conditioned offices, which is great for beating the heat but not fantastic when it leaves your skin feeling dry, tight or flaky at the end of the work day. Take it from this writer, who works in an office where the central air-conditioning unit is positioned right in front of him.
Blame it on transepidermal water loss – a fancier way of referring to the loss of moisture that your skin goes through every second of the day. Couple that with the fact that air-conditioned rooms often mean drier indoor climes that remove the presence of moisture in the air, and you’ve got the answer as to why your skin starts getting flaky midway through your work day.
Yet it doesn’t have to be that way. Keep one of these nourishing skin salves at your desk or in your office drawer for that much-needed hydration boost. Plus, it gives you an excuse to take a minute away from your emails to indulge in a little self love!
You’ll clock out with glowing, hydrated skin.
