Look your best over Zoom

It may feel counterintuitive to take extra care with your appearance when you’re working from home. But even if you never step away from your desk, that doesn’t mean you aren’t seeing other people—and being seen.

Most of us are doing far more video conferencing than ever before. Look your best and feel more confident, whether it’s on Zoom, Google Meet, WebX, Skype or Microsoft Teams, with these tips and tricks.

Get Help From the Professionals

Start with the basics: wash your face using a mild, fragrance-free cleanser. Apply moisturizer as a protective layer to help reduce dryness. To prevent breakouts, choose a moisturizer designed for your skin type (oily, normal, or dry).

Feel like you could improve your makeup game? Set up a consultation to learn how to apply makeup to accentuate your best features. Pure Medical Spa offers a complimentary color match for first-time clients and carries a full line of Jane Iredale makeup, the recognized leader in makeup containing pharmaceutical-grade ingredients. Permanent cosmetics are a great option for enhancing your professional image—and shortening your morning routine! Define lips, accentuate eyes, and fill in sparse brows with permanent cosmetics.

The aestheticians at Pure Medical Spa can help determine which skincare products are best for your skin type. While you’re at it, take time for a facial or chemical peel to achieve smoother, softer, rejuvenated skin. Even with the most committed skincare routine, age and other factors can affect our looks. Fortunately, there are a number of treatments that can help. Facial fillers smooth out lines and wrinkles around cheek folds, upper lip, lips, upper cheeks and eyes. There are a number of procedures to choose from, most of which can be done in as little as 15 to 30 minutes with minimal recovery time.

It’s All About Perspective (and Lighting)

Now that you’re looking your best IRL (in real life), don’t let technical difficulties mar your appearance. Since smartphones and webcams feature wide-angle cameras, it’s important to step back to avoid having them distort your appearance. Position yourself directly in front of the camera, ‘eye to eye’ if possible, avoiding having the camera positioned below you. Position one steady lamp directly in front of your face for even lighting, avoiding sidelights or backlights.

Take Steps to Look Great on Camera…

The professionals at Pure Medical Spa provide a wide variety of skincare treatments to keep you looking and feeling your best in front of a camera, including chemical peels, laser treatments and facials. We also carry a complete line of skin care products and can recommend proper usage based on skin type.
