BEST SKIN CARE TIPS FOR NIGHT SHIFT EMPLOYEES

Hey sweetypies,

How you all have been ? Well today I am going to discuss about skincare tips during night shift job. You may wonder why I have suddenly chosen this topic! Let me tell you the reason. In my past job life I was associated with the media industry, which included night shift duty also.Now doing a night shift job is not at all easy, as it always takes a toll on our body. The night shift workers are prone to various health disorders than the day shift workers, e.g. gastro-intestinal problems, obesity, hair loss, stress, mood swings, sleep disorders etc. The worst part is skin issues that do not lag behind!

On night shift duties, I used to apply minimal makeup, like moisturizer, kajal, lip balm and a little face powder. Lately I found while on duty my skin was getting terribly dry, leaving skin dull and flaky. Then I started following skin care routine religiously during duty time at the office only to get rid of harsh dryness. Now what are they, to know more read ahead.




Practically, you might think ‘’these things are impossible to do at office’’, but wait remember the word IMPOSSIBLE itself says that ‘I AM POSSIBLE’! And who cares, what other people thinks!!  It’s your body and you have all the rights to take care of it in every way. 

My Tips:-


  1.   Cleanse your face with a good face wash once you reach office (Use moisturizing one).
  2. After that, use heavy cream/oil based Moisturizer, as it will prevent dryness (Oily beauties can use water based moisturizer, but here the purpose is to reduce dryness).
  3. You can apply a good night cream and massage well on the face.
  4. Slather Aloe Vera Gel on the body. Make sure you apply it thrice to keep the skin well moisturized.
  5. The most important thing is to stay hydrated all the time. Drink at least 8-10 glasses of water while on night shift duty. 
  6. Avoid caffeinated drinks. 
  7. Avoid snacking habits. Good for health and skin. 
  8. There are other symptoms also your skin may show up like wrinkles, chapped lips and hair dryness. Use good quality eye serum/cream. Lip balm is a must have with girls and don’t you dare to neglect your precious mane. Cover your hair with a scarf/dupatta/bandana or with whatever you have. But do not leave it open as AC will suck the moisturizer from hair too.
  9. Most of our offices are air conditioned which we enjoy a lot. But the sad part is AC zaps out all the moisturizer from our body, leaving the skin rough, dry and dehydrated. A long exposure to AC can also damage your skin badly. Follow these tips –   

  •     Wear full sleeve dresses. Protective clothing is very important to avoid dryness.
  •      Moisturize...moisturize...moisturize.
  •     Try to raise the temperature of AC if possible.
  •   Ask the office boys to change the AC filters regularly (sounds impossible I   know!)
  •    Put a bowl filled with water inside your department. A great way to minimize the dryness caused by AC.
  •    Try to take regular interval breaks and go out of the cabin. Move a little bit here and there in your office and then again go to work inside the AC room. It is a necessary step as well.

   I could follow these steps easily because it was convenient for me and I got support from my colleagues too.Do try to reach office few minutes prior to your scheduled time, in this way you can manage everything.

 Night shift jobs are interesting and lucrative as sometimes you are paid more than other shift workers in few industries in India but it’s quite tough too! I know that just for these skin issues you can’t quit your job, since career is also important for you. Well no worries, all you need to do is to follow these guidelines and take proper care of yourself and enjoy your night shift work.

     Take care & see you soon...

  2. I can Totally relate to this as I have done night shifts. It was really fun. Initially I dint know about the caffeinated drinks, they really do a lot of harm. One needs to stay away from them and remember to moisturize.
    I remember my desk and locker would have lipbalms and moisturizer :P Loved the post :)

  14. These are some great tips. Staying hydrated is so important. I haven't worked night shift, but I have worked later hours way past midnight often. Staying hydrated inside and out really helps in the long run.

    1. After doing 8-9 hrs nightshift job, I used to do one thing first to take care of my eyes,that was a DIY. In a bottle I mixed cucumber and potato juice and kept that in freeze. After coming home, I used to cover my eyes with cottons dabbed in that cool tonic for 10-15 min. Then I used to follow regular CTM routine :) Hope this helps!

  17. On the off chance that you have ever been to a dermatologist due to skin break out issues then you are most likely exceptionally acquainted with sebaceous organs. Since the skin should be greased up, it is secured with oil discharging organs known as sebaceous organs. http://www.wartalooza.com/treatments/tea-tree-oil-warts

  20. Secondly, while traveling where you can't wash your face frequently use a good quality wet tissues to wipe off all dirt & excess oil also you can dab a cotton gauge into astringent liquid & apply all over your face to eradicate skin troubles. Is clean and clear moisturizer non comedogenic
