When working from home becomes a day-to-day reality as it has in the face of the COVID-19 outbreak, how do remote workers cope? What habits change? Advanced Dermatology recently surveyed nearly 1,500 people that are working from home due to Coronavirus to learn more about their disrupted habits and routines including hygiene and beauty habits while working remotely.
They found that 54% of surveyed respondents say they’re worried about potential weight gain while working remotely. The top reasons include:
- Being less physically active (44%)
- Having easier access to food (37%)
- Eating more to cope with anxiety (19%).
One in five admits to brushing their teeth less than normal, while one in three say they’re showering and doing laundry less often than normal. 61% say they’re doing their hair less and just 19% are regularly wearing makeup. 91% of respondents say they dress more casually working from home, however, 50% of respondents said they dress up for video calls and 46% put makeup on for video calls.
