Beauty tricks to hide the signs of a bad night’s sleep
Fake your way to looking bright eyed and well rested in the morning
Not enough sleep? A lack of zzzzs will show up in your skin, such as redness and dehydrated dullness. When you need to fake eight hours of sleep, these are the seven steps you need to follow.
Drink a huge glass of water to counter dehydration and flush out toxins. Next, aim your shower nozzle into the small of your back. Turn the temperature from warm to cool to further stimulate circulation. Finally, cleanse skin, and then mist your face with a hydration spray like Ultraceuticals Ultra Balancing Skin Mist.
Use a moisturiser that infuses glow-restoring vitamins into your skin, like Elemis Pro-Radiance Illuminating Flash Balm.
If your eyes are bloodshot, douse them with eye drops and lie down for a few minutes with a cold, wet cloth over them. Then massage a quality eye gel into the orbital bones. Try Elizabeth Arden Flawless Future Powered by Ceramide Eye Gel.
Perfect your base
Use a foundation like that will combat any shine that might appear throughout the day. When applying the rest of your makeup, avoid pink hues as they will enhance redness, and leave eyelids free from makeup – this helps make the eyes appear less tired. Our foundation pick: Max Factor Facefinity All Day Flawless 3-in-1 Foundation.
Polish your hair
If you have time to wash and style your hair afresh, do it. If not, grab your dry shampoo and spray it into the roots of your hair to revive your style, add volume and take away any smells from the night before. We love Kevin Murphy Doo.Over Dry Powder Finishing Hairspray.
