The best beauty routine for tired skin

Stressful days? Busy nights? You need a break, and your skin does too. While you are still booking tickets for your vacation, treat your face to a holiday by following a new beauty routine and say goodbye to tired, dull-looking skin.

Hydration- When your skin isn't looking its best, the first place to start is rehydration. Dry or dehydrated skin shows more signs of fatigue than well-hydrated skin. So it's important to apply a moisturizer both morning and night. Choose an appropriate product for your skin type but always try and opt for a day cream that is rich in hydrating properties. You can miss on a day cream if your moisturizing product is hydrating enough. For example, you can use the new L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that leaves you moisturized and hydrated from within. It penetrates up to 10 layers deep into your skin to give you a glowing, brightening and youthful skin. This product retains moisture and boosts skin elasticity which in turn remove patchy and dry skin. It also contains Salicylic Acid which accelerates skin renewal and mildly exfoliates to refine pores and skin texture.

Cooling treatment- Bags under the eyes are often a result of late nights and not enough sleep, but they can also be a sign of bad lymphatic or blood circulation. Solution? It's a good idea to use an eye de-puffer with a cooling metal rollerball as Cold temperatures help. An easier remedy is to keep two teaspoons in the refrigerator for a few minutes and then placing them on the eyes for 10 minutes. It will give you a soothing effect along with freshness.

Dark circle treatment- Dark circles are also a consequence of poor microcirculation. This can often be improved with vitamin C, which strengthens the walls of the blood vessels, and vitamin E, which improves general circulation. However, a concealer will always be the quickest solution to the problem. To get the best results, choose the lightest shade compared to your complexion to help illuminate the face.

Face mask- To look rested in just a few minutes, there's nothing better, or more relaxing, than a face mask. With the application of hydrating and smoothing agents, a good mask will help smooth the features and give you baby soft skin. Plus, it's the perfect excuse for a few minutes of 'me' time.

Your skin goes through a lot of external factors in your daily life. Once in a while it is necessary to give your skin some time to help it repair and heal. A beauty routine like this can help it recover and get its lost glow and sheen.
