If you’re anything like me, it takes about three cups of coffee before anyone can even approach me in the morning. Despite the amount of sleep I actually get, I look so tired and unfortunately, as much as we love the summertime, with the heat and the late nights we tend to look even more tired during this season. So, I have decided to give my fellow women a few items that can help turn you from tired to fresh by simply adding them to your morning routine. I have three go-to products that I personally can’t live without.
The Face Wash
I have tried a few different products in this category and none have really been able to keep my skin clear and wake me up the way this one does. Clean and Clear Morning Burst has energizing beads that will instantly make you feel refreshed and awake. The facial cleanser also helps prevent shine throughout the day so if you suffer from oily skin like I do it’s an even better choice. The wash comes in a few different colors and scents, but my favorite is the one that features lemongrass, for some reason that particular smell leaves you feeling truly fresh and relaxed.
Having the right lotion is an essential part of your day because this one product has the ability to give you glowing or cracked skin. My favorite daytime moisturizer is Shiseido Brightening Protective Cream. Not only does it include SPF 15, but it is formulated with vitamin C, which will help brighten skin and revitalize your face and also helps protect your face from air pollution and dryness.
Makeup is a necessity if you are trying to make yourself appear more refreshed, but it is even more important to make sure you are using the proper product in order to achieve the desired results. Using any old black eyeliner on the mornings you are looking especially tired is a risky move because that has the ability to make your eyes darker and more sunken in. The Almay Wake Up Eyeliner and Highlighter is the perfect item to achieve the look you need. The dual sided pencil allows you to define your eyes while the illuminating side can help illuminate your irises. On top of the shimmery color giving you a bit of refreshing, the highlighter delivers a cooling sensation during application to perk up your pupils, tricking people into thinking you got a full eight hours!
Adding these three things into your morning routine will, without a doubt, make you seem more refreshed and awake.
