We all have those days where we could use a few more hours of sleep, so I’ve found some helpful ways to brighten tired skin! Feeling tired is one thing, but looking tired is the pits! Why walk around looking like a zombie when you can easily wake up tired skin and look more awake with just a few beauty products?! Keep reading to get the lowdown on how to brighten tired skin!
A sure way to brighten tired skin and revive dull skin is to exfoliate your skin. Exfoliating is essential for getting rid of dead skin cells and revealing fresh skin. Using a gentle scrub on your face and body can instantly make you feel much more awake and refreshed. Make sure you use a scrub a few times a week to keep skin looking and feeling better and brighter!
If you frequently skimp on sleep, staying hydrated will be your skin’s saving grace. Dehydrated and tired skin looks dull and sallow. Start your day with a tall glass of water and stay hydrated throughout the day to aid your skin in regaining its natural moisture and glow! Have some lemon with your water for a vitamin C boost to keep skin clear!
This next tip on how to wake up tired skin isn’t the easiest thing to do when you’re sleepy, but it really helps. Take an ice cube and rub it all over your tired face. If you don’t have any ice cubes on hand, splash some cold water on your face. Cold water or ice will help stimulate blood flow and tighten your pores, making your skin appear brighter and smoother!
A similar way to look more awake is by using chilled skin care products. Place your toner, eye cream or facial moisturizer in the fridge overnight and apply it in the morning. The chilled products will soothe tired, puffy skin and help refresh your skin. The cold temperature of the products will also stimulate blood flow and invigorate skin without using super cold water or ice!
If you feel like your skin needs more help than a splash of cold water, wake up tired skin with a de-puffing product. Try using a rollerball with an eye serum that will help take the puffiness and brighten up tired-looking skin.
Concealer is the first thing we reach for when we need to look more awake, and rightfully so! What else can camouflage dark circles and even out your skin tone like it’s nobody’s business?!
