Posted on November 15 2016
Ladies, ever have one of those days when you look at yourself in the mirror and ask “What happened?”. Well, let me reassure you, you’re not alone. Each and every one of us has woken up to a drawn-out, tired-looking face and an ashy complexion. There can be a variety of reasons why we look worn out and less than vibrant.
Here are a few simple tricks you can start implementing today that will remedy that lack-lustre appearance.
#1 Revive Those Baby Blues
Had a late night? Well chances are your eyes will give it away because they are the tellers of truth.
The first trick is one that’s been around probably since the invention of cutlery. Get yourself two teaspoons and put them in the freezer for about 10 minutes. Then place them over your closed eyes so that they fit nice and snug. Hold in place for about 30 seconds. Your eyes will look and feel instantly refreshed. To keep that refreshed look all day, apply an eye serum or cream.
#2 Keep it Cool
Once you’ve cleansed your face in the morning, be sure to rinse it with cool water. This helps to diminish redness and swelling, giving you a radiant glow. By the way, this is also a great trick for your whole body. When you take your morning shower, switch the water temperature to cool just before you’re ready to get out. You will feel invigorated and ready to start your day. Be sure to moisturize both your face and body immediately after this cool water rev up. This will ensure that your skin retains its moisture.
#3 Hydrate Hydrate Hydrate
We’ve heard it, oh about a million times, that drinking water is important. This is not an overstatement. It may be a bit of an adjustment to introduce more water into your life but once you’ve adopted it as part of your routine, you’ll be thanking the H2O gods. You see, water is beneficial for numerous reasons, from aiding digestion to flushing out toxins to revving up energy level. In terms of helping your appearance, water is the cheapest and easiest way to get a clear and glowing complexion. Consider water as your inside out moisturizer.
Just can’t get into the habit of drinking this see-through elixir? Well, a great trick is to always have a glass or bottle filled with water with you wherever you go. Leave a bottle at your desk or in your purse at all times. Fill it up whenever you get up for a bathroom break. You can even add flavors such as mint, lemon or raspberries if water is too plain-Jane for you. In no time your body and skin will be thanking you for feeding it what it craves.
If you start applying these simple tricks today, that beautiful face in the mirror will smile back at you… even in the morning.
