5 Beauty Tips For Healthy Skin - Overcome a Sleepless Night

Partying till dawn, a crying baby, insomnia, pulling an all-nighter to complete an assignment - no matter the reason, a sleepless night takes its toll on your energy levels and your skin. The only thing worse than the sleepless night is the dull and pasty complexion the morning after and those dark circles are a dead giveaway of lack of sleep. Read on for some tips to wake up your face and mask the effects of a sleepless night.

Do Not Skip Your Morning Cleanse

If you've had a sleepless night, your morning cleanse is even more essential. Using circular movements, massage your face with your favourite cleanser, paying particular attention to sensitive zones like the eye contour and lips. The L’Oréal Paris Hydrafresh Anti-Ox Grape Seed Creamy Foam thoroughly cleanses skin and leaves skin refreshed. A cleansing lotion will have a toning effect on your skin and stimulate blood circulation. And a spritz of cold water will contract the blood vessels, reducing redness and puffiness.

Hydrate Your Skin

After a sleepless night, the skin needs hydrating. Drink at least 1.5 litres of water to remove toxins, and feed your skin with a good moisturiser. The new L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence is a water-based formula that penetrates up to 10 skin layers to reveal bright, radiant, crystal clear skin with improved moisture retention. Gently massage your face from the inside out: your blood circulation will get a boost, your skin will plump up, and your complexion will brighten.

De-Puff Your Under Eyes

To banish those unsightly bags, take two dessert spoons and pop them in the freezer while you're cleansing. Then gently lay the curved sides on your eye sockets. After 2-3 minutes, your bags will be well and truly gone. Next, apply an eye cream to hydrate. Use the L’Oréal Paris Youth Code Skin Activating Ferment Eye Essence to reduce eye bags and dark circles, and to make the skin around your eye contour feel firm and look young. Follow this with a light concealer to camouflage any stubborn dark shadows.

Use A Face Mask

Packed with moisturisers and smoothing agents, a refreshing face mask will revitalise skin and give a rested look. Try one to smooth out your features and plump up the epidermis, giving you baby-soft skin in no time. The Plumping and Hydrating L’Oréal Paris Revitalift Essence Face Sheet Mask makes skin plump, smooth, and reduces lines and wrinkles, perfect for the morning after a sleepless night.

Opt For Light Makeup

Don't try to hide under layers of make-up. Opt for a BB tinted moisturiser, which will brighten the skin and even out tone. Add a hint of blusher for a peachy complexion and slick on some mascara for a fresh, wide-eyed look.

A good night’s sleep is key to healthy and radiant skin, it’s not called a beauty sleep for nothing. Lack of sleep doesn’t just impact your mood and your concentration the next day but can also wreak havoc on your skin. Make sure to follow these tips to put your best foot forward and tackle your day without showing signs of a long, sleepless night on your face.
