If you are a working professional, then you’re probably spending more hours in the office than at home. However, that does not mean you let it take a toll on your beauty game.

Whether it’s re-applying sunscreen, moisturiser, lip balm or dealing with bad hair days and underarm sweat, everything needs to be taken care of. And, the only way to be on top of your beauty game in the office is to keep the right beauty essentials in your desk drawer at all times.

Here are 6 essentials every working woman needs to have in her desk drawer.


01. Lip balm

The closed air-conditioned office can leave your lips dry and chapped. Plus, regular use of matte lipsticks can further dry out your lips. It is, therefore, ideal to keep a lip balm handy at all times. You can get your hands on the Vaseline Lip Therapy Original and store it in your desk drawer. Swipe it across your lips once or twice a day. This will keep your lips soft and moisturised.


02. Hand cream
