LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) - It happens to all of us; one thing or another has kept you awake all night. But thanks to these expert tips, no one has to know that your snooze-time was seriously compromised.
Here are five ways to look less tired from Redbook.
1. Get moving. Exercise may be the last thing you feel like doing when you're dragging, but even six-to-ten minutes of aerobic moves and stretching can increase blood flow and circulation to the face. Knee lifts, jumping jacks, and sit-ups are just what the doctor ordered.
2. Shrink pores. Restore skin's balance by rubbing an ice cube all over your face after applying your regular moisturizer. One minute with an ice cube will tighten and seal pores.
3. Opt for a loose bun. No time to wash and style your hair? No problem. A high bun works with dirty hair, with any texture, and it's an automatic facelift. Make a high ponytail, mist with a light hairspray, twist into a loose bun, and secure with a few pins.
4. Give new life to yesterday's blowout. If you went to bed with fabulous hair, but woke up with locks falling flat, roll your hair into three or four medium-size hot rollers. Place each roller facing back, focusing on the front and top of hair, and spray with light-hold hairspray. You'll bring new life to your hair.
5. Bring out the whites of your eyes. It's normal to wake up from a poor night's sleep with bleary, red eyes, but there's no need to leave the house that way. For a cooling, refreshing and soothing effect, eye drops will make your eyes look bright and shiny.
