The appearance of tired, dull skin can be caused by a number of factors. Weather conditions, physical exercise and sleep (or lack of it), can all have an impact on how our skin looks and feels. If your skin lacks lustre, follow our simple beauty and health tricks to make it clear, get it glowing, and to reduce the signs of fatigue.
Drinking eight glasses of water a day helps to flush out toxins, carry nutrients through the body, replenish skin cells and tissues and increases elasticity of the skin. Each of these things helps to keep our skin looking young, awake and fresh.
In order to combat tired looking skin, it is very important to get an adequate amount of sleep each night. During sleep, the production of collagen is accelerated which has anti-ageing properties, creating a fresh and youthful appearance.
Cardiovascular exercise such walking, swimming, cycling and aerobics improves blood circulation and oxygen supply to the skin. This helps to remove toxins from the body and creates a healthy glow.
To reduce the appearance of puffy eyes, purchase an eye gel and place it in the fridge over night. After washing your face, apply the cool gel under your eyes. Alternatively, relax for fifteen minutes with slices of cucumber on your eyes. This should help reduce the swollen area around the eyes and also lighten the appearance of dark circles.
Wash face with cold water
When you wake up in the morning splash your face with cold water and pat dry. This will stimulate blood circulation in the face, and help to revive your skin.
