How to WOW at work
Need to make a good impression at the office? Take your nine-to-five to new heights with our tricks of the trade
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.
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.
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.
