Calm Fatigue in Dull and Tired Skin
When you’re tired, it shows on your skin. Looking tired is actually a combination of the many ways that fatigue impacts our bodies – and our skin. Tired skin is tough to cover up. Makeup can actually prolong the problem and keep skin from bouncing back. Fortunately, there are ways to treat you skin and give it that restful look!
Despite what you’ve heard, the darker pigmentation below your eyes doesn’t get darker when you’re tired; it just looks darker because the skin above it is dehydrated, letting dark “circles” show through. Resist the urge to just cover them up; instead, drink plenty of water and apply a treatment that is specially formulated to restore volume and hydration to that delicate under-eye skin.
Tired skin retains water near the eyes in efforts to stay hydrated, leading to another giveaway that you’re sleep-deprived: Puffy eyes. They cast shadows on the under-eye area that can make dark circles look even darker. Hydrate and moisturize this sensitive skin!
Like dark circles, fine lines stem from the dehydration your skin endures when lack of sleep throws off its pH. Hydate and moisturize these lines. The added moisture will make fine lines less obvious, and motion-activated essential oils will help you get some much-needed rest.
Buildup from dead skin cells and products becomes a bigger problem when your body hasn’t had enough time overnight to regenerate. The silver lining: Exfoliating your skin can restore some of its missing glow. Give your body one less thing to do when it’s tired.
