Five Beauty Tips to Wake Up My Skin
Do you experience long days and shorter nights? If yes, it will immediately show on your skin in the forms of a dull complexion, fine lines and dark circles. Worry not, here are five beauty tips for giving your skin that fresh, wide-awake look.
Splash your face with cold water first thing in the morning. Coldwater has a magical effect on the skin. It removes puffiness, kick-starts circulation, tones, tightens pores and soothes the eyes and eyelids. It's also a super refreshing way to wake up. If you're not overly keen on the cold, spritz your face with a can of room-temperature thermal water. It won't be as much of a shock and is packed with minerals.
Have you ever noticed that upon waking, your face often looks swollen? This is physiological; when you lie down, water has a harder time circulating around your face. To boost water circulation, massage your face using circular movements. A reviving massage will remove puffiness, boost your blood flow, alleviate stress and give your skin a much-needed wake-up call.
You know that moisturizing is an absolute essential for glowing skin. Like flowers, your skin needs water to revive it and keep it in tip-top shape. Opt for a hydrating, anti-fatigue formula, which will not only quench the skin, but also refine its tone and smooth out any imperfections. You can try the new L'Oréal Paris Revitalift Crystal Micro-Essence that is an ultra-weight light Micro-Essence that moisturizes and exfoliates your skin. Its watery formula absorbs completely and penetrates 10 layers deep into the skin to give you hydration and a glowing skin. It contains active ingredients like Salicylic Acid, which accelerates skin renewal & mildly exfoliates to refine pores & skin texture.
4. Eye Contour Cream
Morning fatigue is most apparent around the eyes with dark circles, fine lines, and puffiness. This zone often needs a helping hand. Apply an eye contour cream rich in caffeine, peptides or algae extracts. It will remove puffiness, revitalize and soothe eyes.
When applying your makeup, dab on a touch of illuminating concealer under the eyes, on your nose and your chin. This will immediately brighten up your complexion.
A fresh face looks beautiful, even if you do not apply a lot of makeup. It adds in shine and confidence in your overall look. Therefore, before stepping out, ensure that your face looks fresh and hydrated so that when you apply any makeup, it further accentuates your look and not instead dulls it.
