6 Products To Hide Tired Skin

12th Apr 2015

Anti-fatigue helpers to mask tired skin..

When you aren’t getting your eight hours sleep and when all else fails, here are some sleepless skin-savers to help you fake rested, glowing skin..

1. Estee Lauder Idealist Cooling Eye Illuminator, €56

When we’re sleep deprived, we tend to retain sodium, which can swell under the eyes. A few swoops of this nifty applicator around the eye orbital bone will help shift that excess fluid away, while the stimulating formula deflates and detracts from the look of bags.

2. Nip+Fab Energy Boost Body Wash, €33

3. Eyecicles, €175

These work on a similar premise to submerging a tired, puffy face in an ice bucket, but much less dramatic. These glass rollers, which you keep in the fridge, are designed to massage the eye area, but can also be used over the entire face. Follow the advised acupressure rolling method of massage to help the blood vessels under the skin expand and contract, immediately stimulating blood flow, boosting oxygen and flushing out unwanted fluid build-up.

4. Bliss Triple Oxygen Instant Energizing Mask, €43

This brightening formula fizzes?up on impact and uses every technology in the book to furnish you with a fresher, younger-looking face. Wash off after three minutes for results that last ?til bedtime.


5. This Works Sleep Balm, €33

Created by beauty guru and self-confessed insomniac Kathy Phillips, this balm?of therapeutic relaxants – lavender, rose, monoi and coconut oil, when applied to pulse points and temples helps relieve the tension caused by sleeplessness.

6. Radial Dragon’s blood Hyaluronic Mask, €33

Slather this on while you wait for your double espresso to brew. It saturates skin with water-attracting molecules to quickly plump up the surface, while the secret ingredient – red tree sap ?perks up a faded pallor in seconds.
