For the most part, the COVID-19 vaccine roll out is a massive sigh of relief for working daughters who have spent the last year plus navigating a deadly pandemic, not just for themselves, but for aging family members too. But as the world opens up, there is one aspect of the new normal that may not be so welcome: looking presentable again. FOGO (fear of going out) is the new FOMO.
If, like so many, you took a year of from personal grooming, you don’t know what comes first: wine o’clock or shower time, but you do know the former happens daily and the latter only occasionally, and your wardrobe has been whittled down to the earrings, tube of mascara and scrunchie you keep on standby for Zoom calls, a return to the outside world may feel daunting. Don’t worry! We’re going to help you with our Working Daughter reentry guide. Our plan doesn’t require salon visits because even if you are ready to start frequenting them again, you’re a working daughter, who has the time?! So consider this your DIY leave the house again tool kit.
Let’s take it from the top:
For a damn near close to professional looking blow out, use the Revlon. It’s truly a wonder tool.
For whiter teeth, try the Glo Whitening Kit. But don’t skip the dentist visit. Caregivers need to make that extra effort to schedule cleanings (and mammograms!).
Speaking of mammograms, get a new bra! Trust us, you need one. If you don’t feel comfortable, or have the time, to get fitted, the Warner’s No Side Effects Full Coverage is a best seller.
For wearing something other than your husband’s flannel shirt from Kohls, buy a colorful top. Color is in. Somber is so 2020.
And to go with a colorful top, here’s some great news: boot cut and flared jeans have returned. Hallelujah. Grab a pair.
For nails without the maintenance, or expertise, of a professional manicure, Christian Dior Nail Glow gives your nails a polished, bright look and doesn’t require the dexterity of an octopus to apply it neatly.
Because we’re not sure if anyone will ever weAR real shoes again, plus working daughters run a lot of errands, get yourself a cute, new pair of sneakers like these Nikes.
And finally, grab yourself a stylish but super inexpensive pair of sunglasses, (You’re forgetful. Understandably. These won’t hurt if you lose them).
