In this increasingly fast paced and busy world, more and more people are finding themselves deprived of sleep. If this sounds like you and you can’t even remember the last time you got a full eight hours of sleep, your sleep deficit may be starting to take a toll on your appearance. Obviously, the best thing to do would be to catch up on sleep, but until you are able to do that, here are a few tips on how you can look healthy and well rested, even if you aren’t:

 Tighten Loose Skin

Skin normally generates new collagen while you sleep, which is the matter that keeps your skin tight and plump and prevents sagging. Skin that has enough collagen is less likely to wrinkle or develop fine lines. However, if you are deprived of sleep, this can lead to twice as many fine lines and wrinkles, and your skin loses is elasticity and tightness. Coastal Skin Solutions, a premier skincare provider in South Carolina, offers solutions to help restore elasticity and plumpness to your skin. There are several options, which you can learn more about on their website: https://www.coastalskinsolutions.com/.

 Coastal Skin Solutions’ skin tightening treatment makes use of radio frequency energy to heat tissue and stimulate sub-dermal collagen production in order to reduce the appearance of fine lines and loose skin. This technique also induces tissue remodeling, as well as the production of new elastin. This treatment lifts and tightens your skin naturally without surgery or downtime, and its effects can last a long time, so your skin looks fresher, longer.

 Utilize Utensils

If you’re pressed for time and just looking for a quick fix instead of a cosmetic procedure, massaging your face with cold, metal spoons helps de-puff your skin and reduce swelling, especially around your eyes. Chill a couple of metal spoons in your freezer, then gently but firmly massage them against your skin in upward motions to improve your complexion and get your blood flowing. The cold will constrict your blood vessels and reduce the appearance of bloated, puffy skin.

 Take a Cold Shower

We know how nightmarish this may sound, especially in the morning during the cold winter months, but taking cold showers not only make you feel more awake, they will also make you look more awake. Taking a cold shower in the morning is a great way to jump start your systems and get your blood flowing, and it can potentially brighten your skin and tighten your pores as well.

 Use a Brightening Concealer

Many people don’t understand the point of brightening concealers. They’re not very opaque or solid, so they’re basically useless for covering up blemishes or imperfections. Brightening concealers actually work to dull down darkness on your skin, especially under your eyes. They can also serve as a highlighter for your t-zone and Cupid’s bow, for an illuminated and radiant look. The next time you’re starting the day sleep-deprived, apply some brightening concealer and notice how your face seems instantly lifted and fresher.

 

These are just a few tips and tricks to fake a healthy, well-rested glow. But the truth is that there is no substitute for getting enough quality sleep every night. Try to adjust your lifestyle if you can to make more time for sleep, and you will notice what a big difference it makes not only on your skin, but on your overall health.

Make Your Eyes Look Amazing Without Makeup

You do not have to wear makeup all the time for your eyes to look their best. In fact, it does them good to have a rest from it. Forget the mascara, eyeshadows and liners for a while and let the natural beauty of your eyes light up your face.

Get Enough Sleep

You need to get enough sleep if you do not want your eyes to look droopy or puffy. When you sleep, your body repairs and restores itself and that includes your eyes. If you do not want them to look dull and lifeless, but want them to be sparkling, make sure you do not stay up all night but get the sleep you need.

Look After Your Eyebrows

Your eyebrows frame your eyes and although sorting them is not as important as regular eye care checks, they are still an important part of looking after your eyes from a beauty perspective. Do not pluck them too much as a strong eyebrow can make your eyes look wonderful. It is best to get them professionally shaped and find out from the experts what the best shape is for your face structure. Brushing them upwards can help to open up the area around your eyes too.

Treat The Skin Around Your Eyes

When you are moisturizing the rest of your face do not forget the skin around your eyes. You should not use your normal moisturizer for this area though as the skin is much thinner. You should use a gentler cream that offers a barrier repair, and something with a rich emollient is the best.

Have A Nightly Routine

Get into the habit of applying eye cream at night as part of your beauty regime. You can even put it on your eyelids at this time of day. It will help to restore your skin around the eyes from the vigor’s of the day and make them look much more refreshed when you get up the next morning.

Have A Different Morning Routine

You should apply a lighter eye cream in the morning and avoid putting any on your eyelids. Be gentle as you are applying it as pressure around your eyes can cause puffiness.

Eye Brightening Drops

Eye brightening drops can be good for anyone that suffers from allergies, or if your eyes are looking tired. If they are feeling irritated the eye drops can ease this, and reduce any redness in them. There are ones on the market that are designed especially to brighten your eyes, but before you put anything into this most delicate organ, you should speak with your physician and OK it with them.

Stay Healthy

The most important thing to keep your eyes looking good is to stay healthy.  Getting enough sleep has already been mentioned, but did you realize that exercise is good for your eyes as well as the rest of your body? Taking a short walk can improve the eyes fluid drainage system and make them look brighter.

If you keep getting dark circles around them it could be a sign of an iron deficiency. Try eating some iron rich foods and the dark circles should become less obvious. If they do not, talk to your physician, as you may need an iron supplement.



Your eyes can look great all the time without the need for any makeup at all, you just need to care for them.
