How to Look More Awake
We all have rough nights from time to time. Whether you’re pulling an all-nighter, working late or just have a restless mind, sometimes getting a restful night’s sleep is tough. And when you wake up, it’s difficult not to see the tossing and turning on your face. So how do you make it through the day without everyone noticing how tired you are? Well, there are a few simple tricks you can use to make it through a sleepy day – and look good doing it.
Wash Your Face
Being up late or out on the town can cause a shift in hormone production, which can activate your oil glands. And when you get home, the last thing you think about it washing your face. So when you wake up after a long night, hit the sink and use a face wash that contains salicylic acid. This will gently exfoliate your skin, wash out those oil glands, and make it look like you got a solid eight hours.
No, we’re not talking about the giant, jitter-inducing coffee you slam down every morning. We’re talking about taking care of those puffy bags under your eyes with a cream that contains caffeine. Caffeine on the skin is known to reduce inflammation and can work wonders when you’re trying to look like you’ve mastered the art of sleep.
Here’s an additional tip – if you don’t have caffeine cream, throw some tea bags in the fridge. When they’re cold, take a few minutes, lay on the couch and rest them over your eyes. Your under-eye sleepiness will subside and your coworkers won’t find out that you’re a superhero.
Sound scary, awesome, or scary awesome? It’s all three – basically crazy cool camouflage for your skin. No, blur cream isn’t that 90’s alt band you used to love in high school, it’s a cream that scatters light to keep those tired creases and wrinkles hidden from sight. Throw some on in the morning after a long night, and you have yourself a face that even your mother could love. Or is it only a mother could love? Ah, it doesn’t matter. Just try it.
Not only will looking well rested get you on better terms with your boss and coworkers, it will also build confidence and turn you into coolest person in the room – hopefully.
