Singapore Women's Weekly (Singapore) - - BEAUTY REPORT - BY NATALYA MOLOK

You may not feel like the most daz­zling per­son in the of­fice – per­haps you’ve been feel­ing a lit­tle tired and are strug­gling to fo­cus. But if to­tal career domination is on your to-do list, help is on the way – just fol­low these key point­ers that will bring out your in­ner girl boss!

HAVE A GOOD MIND­SET

Do you ever wake up, re­mem­ber all the work you have to do, and feel like you just want to hide un­der the cov­ers and not come out? That feel­ing can be over­whelm­ing, but hav­ing a “me” mo­ment in the morn­ing to set your in­ten­tion for the day can help with work stress. It will shift your whole mind­set.

VI­SU­ALISE SUC­CESS

Suc­cess­ful women don’t wait for an op­por­tu­nity to present it­self : They cre­ate it. One of the ways to do this is to har­ness the power of pos­i­tive think­ing. If you be­lieve you can rise to the top, then you will. It’s as sim­ple as that. Boost your con­fi­dence the night be­fore a big pre­sen­ta­tion with Astalift’s re­for­mu­lated Bright Lo­tion for beau­ti­ful, translu­cent skin, so you can fo­cus more on wow­ing your col­leagues and less on what you look like. At $64 (130 ml).

DON’T TRY TO BAL­ANCE IT ALL

In­stead of try­ing to ex­cel in ev­ery area of your career and giv­ing it all your equal en­ergy, try to stay fo­cused on one thing and con­stantly im­prove that facet of your work life. If you have to meet with a lot of clients, then you al­ready know that look­ing pro­fes­sional and well­groomed counts for a lot. Keep those fine lines at bay with the Astalift White Per­fect UV Clear So­lu­tion SPF 50+ PA++++, a multi-func­tional beauty essence and makeup base, which of­fers ad­vanced UV pro­tec­tion against the sun’s dam­ag­ing rays. At $72 (30 g).

FLAW­LESS ALL DAY

Most of you prob­a­bly put on sun­screen in the morn­ing. But we’d be will­ing to bet that way less of you re­mem­ber to ap­ply it sev­eral more times through­out the day. Wouldn’t it be con­ve­nient if a prod­uct could tell you when to SPF up?

Well, not only is ASTALIFT White Per­fect UV Clear So­lu­tion SPF 50+ PA++++ an all-in-one makeup base and beauty essence, it also lets you know when you’re ex­posed to harm­ful UV rays thanks to its UV Sensor Cap that changes colour from white to pur­ple.

This nifty prod­uct of­fers ad­vanced UV pro­tec­tion, with burst­ing UV Ac­tion Cap­sules that re­lease skin-lov­ing in­gre­di­ents like vi­ta­min C. It’s per­fect for our weather here too, with its light­weight tex­ture and sweat-re­sis­tant for­mula.

SCHED­ULE TIME FOR IN­SPI­RA­TION

On-de­mand cre­ativ­ity doesn’t come easy, and it can be tough to find in­spi­ra­tion when you are stuck in a cu­bi­cle all day long. The so­lu­tion? Make time for non-work re­lated ac­tiv­i­ties to get those cre­ative juices flow­ing. For some peo­ple, that may mean binge-watch­ing a few episodes of your favourite tele­vi­sion or Net­flix show. What­ever it may be, try to make time for in­spi­ra­tion, be­cause you never know when you’ll get that next big idea that could give your career a ma­jor boost.

STAY FLEX­I­BLE

Fight­ing fires at work can keep you run­ning on all cylin­ders, but the rem­edy to that could be as sim­ple as mov­ing reg­u­larly by tak­ing a yoga class. The Astalift White Shield Drink has sim­i­lar re­vi­tal­is­ing prop­er­ties to ex­er­cise, with its high con­cen­tra­tion of vi­ta­min C and Nano As­tax­an­thin. Each bot­tle con­tains essential in­gre­di­ents, de­signed to make you glow from the in­side out. At $60 for 10 bot­tles (50 ml).

BOND WITH YOUR CO-WORK­ERS

Be­ing on both the giv­ing and re­ceiv­ing end of trust from the peo­ple around you could be in­stru­men­tal in your pro­gres­sion. As busy as you are try­ing to climb the cor­po­rate lad­der, it’s best to re­mem­ber that suc­cess is of­ten a shared en­deav­our. Try to make the mo­ments you have with your co-work­ers count, whether it’s over cof­fee, dur­ing lunch or through a com­pany out­ing. When you re­ally get to know peo­ple, you can of­ten work bet­ter with them.
