Episode Title: What can I do for my skin if I didn’t get any sleep?
It's an uphill battle to fake a good night's sleep if you haven't actually had one but here are the top things I do the next morning. From Korean facial massage to improving circulation, here are some tips I know will help you feel and look better after a night with no sleep. Plus, I've got some good Korean skincare and makeup recommendations to reach for.
What Can I Do For My Skin If I Didn't Get Any Sleep? Here are my top tips:
It’s an uphill battle to fake a good night’s sleep when you haven’t had one but my go-to is a Korean facial massage technique to drain the lymph nodes.
Sleep deprivation has a detrimental effect on our lymph nodes. To kick start them again, a lymphatic massage on the face and neck can help.
Start with a clean face and grab a facial oil or aloe vera gel.
It’s because a lack of sleep is stressful to the body.
The skin in particular does the majority of its repairing at night, which is why it is so important to be asleep during the skin’s “golden time”, between around 10pm to 2am.
Fake a Good Night's Sleep Tip 2: Increase Your Circulation
Hydrogels under your eyes can definitely make you feel better and they can help to brighten dark circles and hydrate the skin. Heimish makes an eco-friendly option that can be dissolved in hot water after use. As does Benton.
Heimish just released new Matcha Biome Hydrogelas well.
Here's how to do it:
To soothe and calm the skin after a rough night, reach for the aloe!
Aloe vera is a good ingredient because it calms, soothes and cools the skin. To enhance the cooling effect, you can even pop it in the fridge for 20 minutes before you use it.
Another trick is to pop a sheet mask in the fridge for 20 minutes and then apply that to your face. The cooling and moisturising effects are great for the skin and will feel soothing on tired skin.
Nothing is going to look as good as a good night’s sleep but a good concealer can help.
Korean beauty brand Skinfood makes a cult favouritedark circle eye concealerwith Norwegian salmon oil, to boost skin's immunity. It also assists to conceal dark spots, under eye marks and fine lines.
