Mondays are always tough, but the one after Daylight Saving Time is especially brutal. Turning the clock forward might have you (and your complexion) feeling sluggish. "Sleep deprivation shortens the time that your skin cells renew and replenish at night," says L.A. dermatologist Annie Chiu. And while you snooze, "transepidermal water loss is increased, and losing even an hour of this cellular renewal time can make the skin appear more dull." This is why "tired skin" is really often a result of dehydration. We found three products to help you look a bit more rested, even if you're missing out on a few winks.
If you have 20 minutes.... try Peach & Lily Reset Button Soothe + Restore Mask. This combination of antioxidants and moisturizers help plump up skin and cancel out any redness. Rosemary extracts energize skin cells and promote turnover, while aloe and rosewater soothe skin.
If you have 10 minutes...try Shangpree Marine Energy Eye Mask. The under eye area is notorious for showing signs of fatigue. Since this skin is thin and fragile, it's also where fine lines tend to show up first. After applying your daily moisturizer, pat a creamy formula which contains brightening ingredients like licorice root extract and niacinamide to help perk up tired eyes. Follow up with a swipe of nude eyeliner on the water line to camouflage any redness.
If you have 5 seconds...try Saturday Skin Daily Dew Hydrating Essence Mist. By the time the afternoon hits, skin can look a little lifeless. Instead of applying another layer of concealer, spritz this hydrating essence which contains moisturizing sodium hyaluronate to refresh skin and makeup.
