We all need those eight hours of sleep each night. They help us to feel better and to look good. However, there are just nights when we can’t get the amount of sleep we need or want. On those nights, it is just nice to know how to fake a rested look once morning arrives.
Looking Rested Tip #1
Scrub your skin. When we scrub our skin we are rubbing away dull and dead skin. This leaves behind newer and fresher looking skin. For this reason, when you are tired and just didn’t get the rest you need the night before a gentle exfoliating of your facial skin can wash away the dead skin and make you look brighter and fresher looking.
Looking Rested Tip #2
Take a cool shower. Cool water can stimulate your circulation. Once your circulation is stimulated you look more alive and refresh. You also can wash in a peppermint soap to help awaken your senses while washing in cool water, as an added bonus.
Looking Rested Tip #3
Remove the puffiness from your eyes by placing an old tea bag over both of them. The caffeine in the tea helps constricts the blood vessels and helps bring down the puffiness.
Looking Rested Tip #4
Use a concealer around your eyes to hide any dark circles. Make sure that you blend it into your skin well.
Looking Rested Tip #5
Use less foundation on your face. Keep it to areas you need it most and keep light in color.
Looking Rested Tip #6
Curl your eye lashes and definitely add mascara to them. This will make your eyes seem more open which will help give you a more awake look.
Looking Rested Tip #7
Add some blush to your cheeks. Blush is the perfect accessory to adding color to a lifeless face. Try to apply the color to the highest point of your cheeks.
Looking Rested Tip #8
Apply some lipstick onto your lips. A lipstick that has staying power is the perfect choice, since you don’t have to worry about reapplying. Try to pick a color that has a little pop to it to help draw attention away from your tired eyes.
Looking Rested Tip #9
Drink water. Water helps to moisturize our bodies. Water also helps our body to gain energy.
Looking Rested Tip #10
Dress in an appealing outfit that can help draw attention away from your face.
Of course, the best tip for looking rested is by being rested. Strive for those eight hours whenever you can. Remember sleep is good for your body, mind and beauty.
