When I wake up in the mornings I either look normal, pretty bad or terrible. I normally stay in the “pretty bad” range. Why? Because I was blessed with under-eye bags that use any excuse to dominate my should-be fresh and rested face. Some rare mornings, I can wake up looking great…but again, that’s rare. So, of course, I did some research to find out how I can look normal from the moment I first open my eyes.
1. For starters, Dr. Perricone, a leading skin expert, recommends eliminating or reducing carbs from your dinner the night before to reduce eye puffiness.
2. Add a teeny bit of sunless, self-tanner to a night cream like the DDF Anti Aging Restoring Night Serum to wake up with a healthier glow. A slight tan can do wonders in concealing puffiness or bags.
3. Wash your face a couple of hours before bedtime to avoid being “too tired” to wash your face before bed. This will help avoid clogging pores with toxins, makeup and dirt throughout the night.
4. Wash your face with cool water and Clarisonic Refreshing Gel Cleanser, which contains anti-inflammatory properties, to relieve puffiness or swelling.
5. Use an eye mask like Peter Thomas Roth Sulfur Cooling Masque to help reduce puffiness.
