    I think anything other than a quick swipe of lip balm or some hand lotion (unscented if it bothers your co-workers!) should be done in the bathroom. I’ll also throw my hair up if it’s in my face, but since that’s usually just jamming a pencil through a twist without caring what it looks like so I’ll do that in my office too.

    I think part of it depends on what type of office setup you have. If you’re lucky enough to have an office with a door, you can close the door and do some things (like combing hair or applying nail polish, to use two examples from the original answer). A few years ago I had an ear infection and had to sit with ear drops in my ear 2-3 times a day for 20 minutes at a time. That’s something I couldn’t easily do in the restroom, but because I had an office with a door I could do that at my desk.

    Anything that is medically required to partake in during your work day should be done in the bathroom or very discreetly at your desk. All other grooming should occur at home, prior to the start of your workday and being on company time.
