Fake A Good Nights Sleep (Even When You're Exhausted)

   By makeovermomma  Jul 20, 2011

I'm a mother, which means I will spend the rest of my life trying to catch up on sleep. Unfortunately, the older I get, the more difficult it becomes to hide my lack of shut eye. If you find yourself always looking puffy, pasty and past the point of no return, steal these easy tips for faking a good night's sleep...

* Hydrate Your Eyes: Eye cream is like the Khloe Kardashian of beauty products (most often to be overlooked, even though it totally deserves better). Even though eye creams frequently seem like an after thought to your regular skincare routine, they are more important than you think. Since the fragile skin around our eye is different from the rest of our face, it truly needs it's own formula to prevent signs of aging. I recommend Le Soin Regard Absolution eye contour, which is an organic product that diminishes the appearance of puffiness, reverses discoloring and prevents signs of aging. It even has green tea and coffee extract to help you look more awake instantly. Perfect!

* Get A Glow: Nothing says well rested like a soft, subtle glow but now how the heck do you get one? Try using an antioxidant boosting face cream to keep your skin refreshed and revitalized, without weighing it down. Meaningful Beauty has a Glowing Serum specifically created to facilitate illumination of the skin, and foster protection against free radicals and environmental enemies. If you want to look gorgeous in one step or less, you can even mix an antioxidant serum with a small dose of tinted moisturizer, bronzer and shimmer cream. You'll have that "je ne sais quoi" glow, without piling on the products. 

* How do you help yourself look more awake when you're secretly exhausted?

This is something I REALLY need. I'm a parent of 5 children AND I work full time on 3RD SHIFT! Talk about in need of some rest or at least the look of being well rested. I'm only 31 and I don't want my inability to get a great nights rest to start having a bad affect on my skin (eye area) so I will be trying this product as well as a few others. Thanks!

I so need this! Being a mother of a 14 month old, can really take it out of you. Not only that I have a fair complexion so any darkness around my eyes is very visiable.
