Life is all about compromises. Sometimes, landing the job you love (nurses, that’s you!) saddles you with beauty troubles you, well, don’t. And we get it—identifying niche beauty needs, along with solutions, can be a real headache.

Janelle, a pediatrics nurse in San Diego, Calif., brought to our attention a real beauty buzzkill you can probably relate to: fluorescent lighting.

That’s right—while fluorescent lighting keeps your work vision sharp, it really doesn’t do wonders to accentuate a healthy glow. In fact, it seems to have a knack for pushing your complexion over the edge from “pale” to “pasty.”

And thanks to the absence of all those fickle ingredients, like oil or fragrance, your complexion won’t take a dive.
