On days when you’re just.so.tired, this 4-step fix delivers instant skin energy…
Some days your skin just feels tired. Really tired. You might have gotten a decent night’s rest but, for some reason, your skin is not as awake and healthy-looking as it normally is. Where’s the coffee for your complexion?
Consider this instantly-reviving routine — designed to energize, stimulate and deeply cleanse — the jolt you need to wake up your face. In addition to boosting your circulation and delivering oxygen to where it needs to go, this morning regimen has mental benefits, helping to turn on a sleepy mind, too.
Here’s how to bring life to all of you, every am:
Start by perking up your skin.
A quick exfoliation can rid dead cells that make your skin look dull and uneven. And the physical act of manual exfoliation activates your senses, too. PMD Clean is a stimulating cleansing device that tackles dulling dirt and debris (with over 7,000 vibrations per minute!) and sonic technology to tone, refine and wake up your face with any irritation.
Up your moisturizing efforts.
Dehydration is often the cause of lackluster, sluggish skin. Besides drinking more water, try a quickie hydrating mask. APTO Healing Turmeric Mask quenches parched skin and brings down redness and inflammation with soothing turmeric extracts. Layer it on after cleansing or exfoliating, leave on for 10 minutes and then rinse off and apply your moisturizer.
Try an eye-opening trick.
Depuffing, tightening and lifting your eyes really works wonders for giving you an all-over well-rested and energized glow. Face Gym’s Rose Quartz Eye Flowies are genius: each hand-carved orb is designed to fit into the contours of your eyes and face. Gently massage them into your skin for five minutes, moving in small circular motions to activate lymphatic drainage, reduce swelling and tone your facial muscles.
Revive on the go.
For a mid-day energy lift, spray your body and pulse points with Baiser Eucalyptus Healing Mist. It’s boosted with an organic eucalyptus hydrosol and organic lemon essential oil to stimulate your mind and body. (Tip: mist it in your hair so the scent slowly releases around you all day!).
