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.
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.
