Is your makeup bag full of the latest serums that have promised a youthful and rejuvenated face? If you’re constantly fighting the battle with tired-looking skin, here are some ways for you to make sure that you stop looking so tired.
Freshening Your Eyes as Quickly as Possible
If your skin is dry and thin, it will show fatigue quickly, resulting in puffy and saggy eyes. There are many options here to help you out, including eye drops, creams with vitamin C and caffeine, but you could also invest in an under eye filler to brighten your puffy eyes.
Do Not Fear the Cold!
The cold is fantastic for your face. Kate Moss was a keen proponent of putting her face in a sink full of ice as it can get the senses tingling, and the blood flowing. If you don’t like the idea of the cold, you could incorporate this into a combination of methods involving heat and cold. For example, a contrast shower can help you to get the blood flowing, while also making sure that your skin gets the benefits of the heat and the cold.
Moisturizing Your Skin While it Is Damp
If you have a tired face, you have to remember that it’s all about timing and technique. After you wash your face, immediately apply some hydrating cream to plump the skin up. You got a very brief window to get your skin moisturized, and it will make a massive difference.
Shake up That Hair!
If you pull your hair back, this can make you look more fatigued. The tighter your hair is pulled, the more it exacerbates a tired face. Always make sure you have a few pieces of hair floating around, or have some feathery bangs. It is a way to distract from your tired face, but it actually works!
Keep Your Eye Makeup Light
Smokey eyes do not work during the day, so you need to focus on a light to medium palate so this can restore shape and emphasis where it counts. You need to avoid putting makeup beneath the eyes, no matter how tired you look, because mascara and liner can emphasize those eyebags.
It’s Not Just About What You Put on Your Face
Of course, if you’re constantly being told that you look tired, it’s not just about what goes on to your skin but it’s about looking at your life in the round. If you are looking tired, one of the best remedies is actually to get a good night’s sleep. Everybody talks about beauty sleep, but they do not practice what they preach. Getting good quality sleep is so important, but it’s amazing how many people do not. A very simple thing for you to do is to have a bedtime routine, and avoid any electronics in the bedroom. The bedroom needs to be pitch-black, and this will help you to go to sleep, but more importantly, it will help you stay asleep!
If you look tired, worrying about it is only going to make you look more stressed and sullen. Hopefully, some of these tips will help.
