Never Let Work Get in the Way of Your Tan With This Clever Hack

A video sharing a simple trick to shield a laptop from sun glare has gone viral as millions of people still work from home amid continuing COVID vaccine rollouts.

London-based makeup artist Jade Le-Huray demonstrated the clever hack in a TikTok video shared on June 1, where she can be seen placing her laptop inside an empty shoebox to shield the screen from the glare from the sun. The video has been seen more than 200,000 times in less than one week.

“This video was created in 10 seconds, sharing a simple life hack of enjoying the sun whilst working outside,” Le-Huray told Storyful.

“I didn’t expect this video to go so viral! I’ve been doing this trick since lockdown March 2020,” she said. Credit: Jade Le-Huray via Storyful
