YOUR CONFERENCE CALL COMPLEXION

YOUR CONFERENCE CALL COMPLEXION

By: Nateisha Scott


By Eva Alexandridis

From packed schedules that can exist in the office to the relaxed fortress that your home office now brings, you have to adjust your usual running around and endless meetings to the comforts and confinements of your own homes. Whilst meetings once happened around the table, now zoom and conference calls are the main drivers of team communication. Just because your calls are from your home space doesn’t mean your appearance has to suffer also.

From packed schedules that can exist in the office to the relaxed fortress that your home office now brings, you have to adjust your usual running around and endless meetings to the comforts and confinements of your own homes. Whilst meetings once happened around the table, now zoom and conference calls are the main drivers of team communication. Just because your calls are from your home space doesn’t mean your appearance has to suffer also.

PROTECT YOUR COMPLEXION

Our newly-found home offices mean that our screen time has at least doubled in terms of time. With the more time spent in front of a screen, ensure you are protecting the skin against blue light damage. Whilst your skin is shielded from the onslaught of the environment, treat blue light with the same priority.

After cleansing, apply the NAC Y2 Pollution Defence Booster that shields the skin against harmful aggressors. Utilising the power of protective peptides and antioxidants, shield the skin against the damage that is caused by the blue light and free radicals.

REFRESH THE SKIN

Before jumping onto your next call, refresh the skin with a light spritz from your favourite energising mist or apply a face mask that can offer a little pick me up before baring all in front of your colleagues.

A quick add-on that can be used on clean skin and takes no more than 15 minutes, choose from a selection of masks that will then restore and brighten the complexion. Rose Gold or Celestial Black Diamond, our Master-Masking Edit is the answer to all of your skin’s needs.

APPLY SLIGHT COVERAGE

For those not wanting to zoom call with a bare face, applying a little concealer, brows and lip balm will make you feel that bit more put together and as though you were walking out the door to another meeting.

For added radiance, apply the Rose Gold Brightening Booster from your arsenal to the either the high points of the face or mixed in with your moisturiser for a natural lit-from-within-glow that your colleagues can’t miss on camera.

HYDRATION IS KEY

Whether leading the meeting or simply making notes, keep hydrated and keep the skin flush and nourished. With the battle of the central heating and virtual meetings, your skin and body is drying out more than you realise. Keep a bottle by your side and ensure you are filling this up as the day goes by.

LOOKING THE PART

Whilst we all want to lounge in our pyjamas, sometimes wearing a smarter top takes away from the fact that we working from home and still dressing in a nice but comfortable top as though you were leaving for the office creates the sense of a routine even if it is remote.

If you were to advise a London guide, what would be on your list?

Well, As I grew up in Notting Hill, it will always have my heart and if I was recommending spots in London, a wander around Notting Hill would be high up on my list. From there it would be all the best shopping destinations, the iconic private members club, Annabels, Harrods and Liberty’s for any cute and unique gifts. I would always pop into 111CRYO at Harrods for the Cryo Facial and treatment for the ultimate recharge. Sometimes the city is great, but the beautiful secrets of the English countryside is something that should be experienced.

Your In-Flight Essentials?

I don’t have a routine per say and I am certainly not as thorough as Naomi Campbell but I would apply the Meso Infusion Lip Duo and I would always wipe my phone down with anti-bacterial wipes, in fact I do this every day, the bacteria build up is no good for the skin.

In terms of Industry, where do you see the hair industry going?

Well Instagram has changed so much and has impacted the way we consume and learn within the industry, especially with so many creatives, but I still find that a massive amount of people come to the professionals to share the knowledge on how to carry out or complete a desired look, more than ever there is power behind ‘how-to’ videos.

A very valid point and in terms of 2020?

In terms of what we are to see in 2020, things are going to be super creative and we will see a wider awareness for people doing their own thing and it will be expressive and artistic. People will move away from the overtly glamorous looks and will create looks they can tailor to their everyday. As it’s currently Award Season which is the busiest time of the year leading up to the Met Ball, hairstyles are certainly more elaborate, and everyone loves an up do. I would say the most timeless look has to be the blunt bob, it comes around year on year, but it is effortless and timeless.

Outside of hair, what other industries are you into?

I am hugely into Interiors and I would describe my style as 60s/70s glamour, think elaborate and dramatic but I often fantasise about 80s Dallas and Joan Collins and I have to reign myself in. I also love Baking; it is the ultimate way to relax and I find that it is my meditation and therapy. If I’m in the USA I would bake a lot of cookies as everyone is obsessed with then over here and in the UK, I would bake more traditional styles like a lemon tart or an apple tart – it allows for me to be creative outside of my job.

Finally, the best advice you have ever received?

It would have to be from my grandfather, he would often say to me “it’s not how well you’re doing but how well people think you’re doing”. I haven’t successfully implemented it however you can look to Instagram today and people see our work and are blown away by it, but we can be so hard on ourselves and not appreciate our own work ourselves.
