I’m a bit of a night owl and will admit I have more of those kinds of nights than I’d like to admit. But, I’m also a big beauty junkie so I’ve found some amazing products that still help me look like I got a full night’s rest — and none of them are makeup!
Want to know how to look more awake in the morning? Then keep reading for 3 tricks that are easy, effective, and will put that pep back in your skin before you head out the door!
How to Look More Awake in the Morning Without Makeup
TIP 1: Prevent Dark Circles With An Overnight Eye Mask
I leave a box of these VIIcode O2M Oxygen Eye Masks on my nightstand and apply if I know it’s a late night. Nothing like doing a little pre-emptive work while you’re sleeping right? 😉 Dark circles have been a long-standing problem for me and while I’ve tried a variety of different creams, nothing works better than these masks!
The VIIcode Oxygen Eye Masks are formulated with grapeseed oil to remove free radicals, seaweed to restore hydration, and white tea for keeping fine lines/wrinkles at bay. My undereye area feels incredibly moisturized and noticeably brighter in the morning. Which was surprising because it really didn’t feel like I did any work!
TIP 2: Reduce Puffiness With A Cold Compress
I saw this product on another beauty influencer that I follow on Instagram and it’s one of my favorite purchases. The mask comes with 2 sides, one with gel beads and the other with a velvet lining, as well as straps that secure in the back to keep the mask in place while in use. I keep this mask in my freezer and grab in the morning when I need a quick wake-up — while the recommended way is to place the velvet side against the skin, I actually prefer using it with the gel side facing my face as I love the feeling of the cool beads!
I leave the mask on for at least 15 minutes while I’m preparing breakfast for the kids, and I can definitely notice less puffiness especially around my cheeks when I take it off!
TIP 3: Get The Circulation Going With A Face Roller
Face rolling has kinda become trendy in the last couple of years. But, while I was a bit skeptical at first, I decided to try it out for myself. And After doing face rolling twice a day for a few months, I realized that it does make a difference!
Right now, I use this face and neck roller from It Cosmetics because the citrine stone is actually meant to boost mental clarity and focus. Plus the roller size is also not as big as some of the others I’ve tried. Allowing it to work perfectly on all contours of my face!
It’s especially important to only roll in an upwards direction to counteract gravity. As well, I try to run the roller a few extra times around the outsides of my eyes to really tighten the skin in that area and wake it up! I finish by just pressing the roller right on my undereye area (no more rolling at this point) and the cool stone again helps remove any other signs of puffiness.
I hope you found these tips and tricks on how to look more awake helpful. Especially on those days when you may not have gotten as much sleep as you need.
