Night with­out sleep hap­pens not only on New Year’s Eve. Night shifts, over­time at work, roman­tic dates and breast­feed­ing — there are many rea­sons to sac­ri­fice your sleep. And how to make sure that lack of sleep is not notice­able on the face? Med­AboutMe presents a selec­tion of effec­tive tips.

Night is a time of recuperation and beauty

While we sleep, our body is recov­er­ing. And even a few missed hours can promise seri­ous prob­lems — the body sim­ply does not have time to “recharge”.

It is best to go to bed before 10 pm. Cos­me­tol­o­gists assure that two hours before mid­night are the most impor­tant and fruit­ful. The one who spends them in bed will feel great and look exem­plary.

A woman who has neglect­ed the night recov­ery is giv­en a dull com­plex­ion, increased dry­ness of the skin, cir­cles under the eyes and more pro­nounced wrin­kles. Inflam­ma­to­ry ele­ments, a rash, may even appear on the face.

Lucky for us, there are life hacks beau­tythat can cre­ate the illu­sion of a good night’s rest!

12 ingenious beauty hacks after a sleepless night

Start with hydration

Start with hydration

Is it time to wel­come a new day? Start with hydra­tion! A glass of clean cool water (you can with a slice of lemon) will help you wake up. And the face will be moist­ened with a fab­ric express mask “with a chill”. Ide­al­ly, if its impreg­na­tion con­tains hyaluron­ic acid, which increas­es the lev­el of mois­ture in skin cells, and aloe vera juice, which has a calm­ing and anti-inflam­ma­to­ry effect.

Hold the mask on your face for 15 min­utes, then mas­sage the skin for anoth­er 2 min­utes, dri­ving the remain­ing mois­ture into it with your fin­ger­tips — this mea­sure will increase blood cir­cu­la­tion and notice­ably refresh.

Get rid of swelling

Take two tea­spoons chilled in the refrig­er­a­tor and apply them to the del­i­cate skin of the eye­lid area. They will wake up sleepy eyes, improve micro­cir­cu­la­tion in the deep lay­ers of the skin and reduce puffi­ness under the eyes. The “pan­da” effect is gone!

Take care of the beauty of the look

Creams designed to com­bat dark cir­cles under the eyes and puffi­ness of the eye­lid area will help to erase traces of fatigue and “open up” the look. They have a drainage effect and give a lift­ing effect. The for­mu­las of such prod­ucts are devel­oped on the basis of extracts of chest­nut, Asian cen­tel­la and green tea, among the active ingre­di­ents are caf­feine, vit­a­min C and pep­tides. It is bet­ter to keep eye prod­ucts in the refrig­er­a­tor, in this case, you can put your­self in order much faster.



It only at first glance seems like an impos­si­ble task! Light gym­nas­tics and stretch­ing exer­cis­es will speed up blood cir­cu­la­tion, “draw” a pink blush on a pale face and notice­ably refresh. In addi­tion, if cos­met­ics have not coped with puffi­ness under the eyes, gym­nas­tics will cor­rect the omis­sion by “dis­pers­ing” excess water and improv­ing com­plex­ion.

Refresh tone

Skip heavy foun­da­tions and thick pow­ders that cre­ate a mask effect on the face and make the skin dull and exhaust­ed. Instead, mix your day cream con­tain­ing UV fil­ters with a small amount of high­lighter. And apply to dry skin, avoid­ing the eye area (she’ll need anoth­er prod­uct).

The face will acquire a beau­ti­ful glow, and visu­al­ly it will appear young and radi­ant. As an alter­na­tive to day cream, you can use light tonal flu­ids, BB and CC creams.

Use corrector

The cor­rec­tor is the best friend of the fair sex that you get enough sleep. In a small bot­tle there is every­thing you need to mask the imper­fec­tions of the skin. Apply beige cor­rec­tor under the eyes by draw­ing an invert­ed tri­an­gle. Its base should be locat­ed direct­ly under the eye, and the sharp cor­ner should go down to the cheek. Thus, you can achieve per­fect­ly even skin around the area.

The cor­rec­tor can also mask red­ness on the wings of the nose, as well as spots around the mouth that have arisen due to lack of sleep.

Some women are sure that by apply­ing a lot of eye shad­ow on the eye­lid area, they will look fresh­er and more beau­ti­ful. This is not true! The abun­dance of dec­o­ra­tive cos­met­ics will only empha­size the traces of insom­nia and fatigue. And their graph­ic arrows on the eye­lids will cor­rect them. Sweep them over a spe­cial eye­shad­ow base or a light shade of eye­shad­ow, and don’t for­get to top up your lash­es.

Set the accents

Anoth­er trick that will make the look expres­sive is the use of a white lin­er. A thin line should be drawn along the mucous mem­brane of the low­er eye­lid, and with a light shade of shad­ows touch the inner cor­ners of the eyes.

Add blush to cheeks

After a lack of sleep, the skin looks paler than usu­al. A bright blush that adorns the apples of the cheeks can cor­rect this omis­sion. It will also visu­al­ly add vol­ume to the face — it will cre­ate the illu­sion of girl­ish full­ness of the cheeks, which is typ­i­cal for a young age.

Opt for nat­ur­al pinks and peach blush­es and avoid cool dark tones.

Make up your lips

Make up your lips

The best shade of lip­stick that will dis­tract the atten­tion of oth­ers from tired eyes is nat­u­ral­ly pink, a lit­tle brighter than the nat­ur­al col­or of the lips. Berry shades look bright and fresh, and peo­ple will not even notice that your eyes hold a secret about a night with­out sleep.

Awaken Sensuality

As a fin­ish­ing touch, apply per­fume or eau de toi­lette to the “pulse points” on the body. Let the aro­ma be sub­tle, bare­ly per­cep­ti­ble. Strong fra­grances after a sleep­less night can cause irri­ta­tion and headaches, while gen­tle and unob­tru­sive, on the con­trary, refresh and make you feel bet­ter.

Drink more water

In order not to acci­den­tal­ly fall asleep, when things require cheer­ful­ness and con­cen­tra­tion, lean on water. Dehy­dra­tion and a feel­ing of thirst for strength will not add. A suf­fi­cient drink­ing regime, on the con­trary, will set the body in a work­ing mood and allow you to pro­duc­tive­ly spend the whole day. But try to sleep as soon as pos­si­ble! Dream is the best recipe for beau­ty.

Every­one knows that you need to sleep at least 8 hours. And in order to look great, you need to go to bed no lat­er than 10 pm. How­ev­er, if you suf­fer from chron­ic insom­nia or for some oth­er rea­son did not sleep enough, then this will imme­di­ate­ly affect your appear­ance. Dull and pale skin, cir­cles under the eyes are the signs by which you can under­stand that the sleep pat­tern is dis­turbed. In order to look attrac­tive no mat­ter what, you need to fol­low sim­ple tips:

- wash­ing with con­trast water will improve blood cir­cu­la­tion and, as a result, improve com­plex­ion;

- dai­ly wip­ing the face with ice also helps to improve skin tone. Ice can be made from ordi­nary, and from min­er­al water, and from an infu­sion of herbs of chamomile, lime blos­som, St. John’s wort;

- active exer­cise (even for only 10 min­utes), which is best done in the fresh air or with an open win­dow, will awak­en a sleepy body and give it the nec­es­sary ener­gy;

- Express face mask will remove the dull­ness of the skin. First, you can mix mashed boiled pota­toes with warm milk and put the result­ing mass on your face for 5 min­utes. Sec­ond­ly, for 5 min­utes under a tow­el on the face, you can apply a mix­ture of chamomile infu­sion, oat­meal, egg yolk and car­rot juice;

- thin slices of fresh cucum­bers or green tea bags placed on the eyes for 3–5 min­utes will remove bags and puffi­ness;

- A tired look can be made more open if you curl your eye­lash­es. And you can improve the com­plex­ion with the help of make­up. The main thing is to even out the col­or with a cream with a light tex­ture and make the cheek­bones brighter.

Women have always been inter­est­ed in the ques­tion of a quick trans­for­ma­tion if nec­es­sary. And the “cas­es” are dif­fer­ent and the solu­tions too!

What usu­al­ly wor­ries: blue and puffi­ness under the eyes, dull com­plex­ion, dry or oily skin, wrin­kles and sag­ging. How to deal with it if there is lit­tle time?

First, if pos­si­ble, vis­it your beau­ti­cian. Pro­fes­sion­al cos­met­ics, in prop­er­ly select­ed express care, lit­er­al­ly works won­ders!

Almost every cos­met­ic brand has such quick-act­ing prod­ucts: eye creams and face creams with light-reflect­ing par­ti­cles that visu­al­ly make wrin­kles less notice­able; creams with bot­u­linum-like pep­tides; with lift­ing and decon­ges­tant effect.

Light peel­ing (cre­ates a bare­ly notice­able swelling of the skin with the effect of push­ing out wrin­kles), a mois­tur­iz­ing, tight­en­ing, mat­ti­fy­ing or red­ness-remov­ing mask will visu­al­ly improve the skin of the face and eye­lids.

A revi­tal­iz­ing lift­ing or drain­ing machine mas­sage (eg LPG for the face) is a quick and very effec­tive pro­ce­dure.

Ultra­son­ic mas­sage, even radiofre­quen­cy lift­ing (RF lift­ing) will cre­ate the effect of full­ness in the skin by improv­ing blood flow. After a trip to the beau­ti­cian and make-up will per­fect­ly fall on the skin!

If you do not have time to see the beau­ti­cian, then you will have to work hard at home. But for this, you must already have funds pur­chased in advance. For exam­ple, creams and masks with hyaluron­ic acid give a lift­ing and bright­en­ing effect; smooth­ing and smooth­ing wrin­kles give creams that con­tain sil­i­cone (no need to be afraid of it) and, of course, creams with reflec­tive par­ti­cles will help us “mask” wrin­kles.

Cleans­ing and nar­row­ing pores masks with clay and sul­fur will cope with oily sheen.

Puffi­ness under the eyes and blue­ness will decrease from a 15-minute appli­ca­tion of trans­der­mal patch­es (patch­es) with drainage com­po­nents. Eye gels with “film for­m­ers” will “tight­en” the skin and “squeeze” bags, creams with reflec­tive par­ti­cles are also suit­able.

And as the final stage — dec­o­ra­tive cos­met­ics! Again, if pos­si­ble, then use the ser­vice of a make­up artist, if not, then BB- and CC-creams, cam­ou­flage agents, and so on will come to the res­cue …

Your efforts will not be in vain if they are based on the knowl­edge of lit­tle beau­ty secrets.

A girl who needs to spend a few more hours in bed gives out dark cir­cles under her eyes and swelling on her face. Use night masks that act in the deep lay­ers of the epi­der­mis. But with a night cream, you should be care­ful — the rem­e­dy can cause excess flu­id reten­tion. Before going to bed, you can apply a prod­uct with a drainage effect under the eyes. After mid­night, regen­er­a­tion process­es are faster, so patch­es for the area around the eyes are a must have.

Pay atten­tion to the com­po­si­tion of prod­ucts. Gink­go bilo­ba and witch hazel extracts, which strength­en blood ves­sels and relieve puffi­ness, will become your assis­tants. Mois­tur­iz­ing masks with hyaluron­ic acid, peach and black­ber­ry extracts, with vit­a­min C, lac­tic acid and vit­a­min E are espe­cial­ly good. The active ingre­di­ents will not leave a trace of lack of sleep!

You should start the morn­ing with wash­ing with cold water, or even bet­ter — alter­nat­ing hot and cold water. The blood will begin to cir­cu­late faster and the skin will take on a nat­ur­al col­or. A soft scrub will help achieve the same effect.

In the beau­ti­cian’s office, a mas­sage ses­sion will help you, espe­cial­ly in com­bi­na­tion with an algi­nate or bio­gel mask. I can also rec­om­mend a plas­ti­ciz­ing mask with pep­tides and vit­a­mins, as well as a ther­moreg­u­lat­ing plas­ter mask.

Ultra­son­ic facial clean­ing and gas-liq­uid peel­ing can achieve an instant effect, which gen­tly inter­acts with the skin and sat­u­rates it with oxy­gen, which leads to an improve­ment in com­plex­ion and smooth­ing of fine wrin­kles.

If you know in advance that sleep depri­va­tion may occur, sign up for a course of hyaluron­ic acid and antiox­i­dant injec­tions. In this case, you will def­i­nite­ly for­get about bags and cir­cles, say good­bye to fine facial wrin­kles under the eyes, unhealthy com­plex­ion and slug­gish skin tone. The drug reju­ve­nates the skin from the inside, which means you will look like you slept sweet­ly at night, even if you did not close your eyes until morn­ing.

We all know the sit­u­a­tion when, for some rea­son, we didn’t get enough sleep, but in the morn­ing we have to be at an impor­tant meet­ing. Do not despair: there are ways to bring your­self and your face that has not rest­ed dur­ing the night to life.

Let’s start with the most banal — con­trast­ing wash­ing. Noth­ing invig­o­rates so much in the morn­ing as alter­nat­ing wash­ing with cold and warm water. It helps to speed up blood cir­cu­la­tion and restores tone to the mus­cles of the face. To get rid of swelling under the eyes, I advise you to use slices of fresh cucum­ber, which can be put on the upper eye­lid for 10 min­utes. Also, ede­ma is removed by thin cir­cles of pota­toes and green tea bags.

If you do not get enough sleep, be sure to make a mask in the morn­ing from orange juice or sauer­kraut brine. Both prod­ucts con­tain an increased dose of vit­a­min C, which per­fect­ly copes with traces of fatigue and gives the skin a radi­ance. The mask is very sim­ple to make: cut an orange in half, take 1/2, squeeze out the juice, soak a cot­ton nap­kin in it and put it on your face for 5–7 min­utes. After this ton­ing mask, you can safe­ly apply a mois­tur­iz­er and your usu­al cos­met­ic prod­ucts.

In my opin­ion, “draw­ing a face” in case you didn’t have a good rest is not very cor­rect. It is bet­ter to choose a neu­tral make­up with a bright accent to divert atten­tion a lit­tle: there­fore, foun­da­tion, mas­cara, blush and bright lip­stick are enough. And if red­dened eyes still give you away, just in case, you should car­ry mois­tur­iz­ing eye drops in your cos­met­ic bag — with them there will be no trace of fatigue.

Healthy sleep for 8 hours helps the body recov­er quick­ly. But, unfor­tu­nate­ly, in the metrop­o­lis it is dif­fi­cult to find time to relax. There are a few sim­ple ways to quick­ly get your­self in order:

  1. Morn­ing should begin with wash­ing with cold water. If you like a con­trast show­er, then it is ide­al, as the cold shrinks pores and leads to vaso­con­stric­tion. As a result, blue cir­cles under the eyes dis­ap­pear, swelling of the face decreas­es, red­ness sub­sides.
  2. After that, it is bet­ter to do a small “mas­sage-rub­bing” of the eye area with ice cubes from a fresh­ly pre­pared chamomile solu­tion. If there are no cubes, then chilled green tea bags after brew­ing will do. It takes only 5–10 min­utes to remove bruis­es and swelling under the eyes.
  3. Eye patch­es with col­la­gen and hyaluron­ic acid will help to remove fine wrin­kles. In par­al­lel, I advise you to apply a detox mask for skin radi­ance.
  4. For an ide­al result, I advise you to con­tact the cos­me­tol­o­gists. In a good clin­ic, in just 30 min­utes, you will receive an express treat­ment that will remove all traces of fatigue on your face. Your skin will glow like after 8 hours of good sleep. Express care includes sev­er­al stages: del­i­cate make-up removal with gen­tle cleans­ing milk gel; skin ton­ing with a ton­ic based on hyaluron­ic acid and an extract of sooth­ing herbs; appli­ca­tion of a face mask, unique in com­po­si­tion and action, con­tain­ing phy­toex­tracts, antiox­i­dants and vit­a­mins. Through­out the pro­ce­dure, you will be per­formed lym­phat­ic drainage mas­sage (decon­ges­tant). The final step is to apply an intense­ly sooth­ing con­cen­trate with SPF pro­tec­tion.
