I haven’t treated my body very well the last few days. Lack of sleep, lack of food, overworking myself, and many other factors are starting to show up on my face. I have dark circles, puffiness, and my skin is starting to look very dull, tired, and lackluster. Even concealer under my eyes and BB Cream isn’t helping!
When you’re complexion starts to suffer because you’re treating yourself poorly how do you revive and refresh?
Typically I know it’s time to try and buckle down and get some sleep when my skin is starting to look really lackluster. Right now the circles under my eyes are giving me a Charlie Sheen in Ferris Bueller kinda look. But sometimes sleep doesn’t always come…! I’ve been having a little case of insomnia lately!
Typically to revive my skin when sleep isn’t an option I depend really heavily on face masks. They give an injection of much needed moisture into my skin and plump it up as well as brighten and whiten it. I really love the My Scheming 2 in 1 Shea Butter Mask as it has a mask I can sit around in for 20 minutes plus a little packet of attached essence which I apply to my skin after the mask for double the dose of moisture. I really helps to not only hydrate but also to rev up on my complexion slightly.
I also find exfoliating goes a long way to bring back a little bit of a rosy glow to my cheeks while eliminating dry patches on my face!
So yeah, these aren’t long term solutions as what I really need to do is get some more sleep, drink more water (ugh hate it), and start eating better but when I can’t do that at least a little skincare can put a temporary bandage over my issues.
