How to Fake Beauty Sleep in 7 Simple Steps

Wake Your Skin Up in 7 Simple Steps!

Even though we all know about the importance of a good 8-hour beauty sleep, let’s be honest – we don’t always sleep well. Be it because we are overworked, we’ve partied late or because our brain is restless (yet, tired) and we just can’t fall asleep.

You've all been there, you know what I am talking about - the tired look, the dull-complexion, the unintentionally sad expression. 

To help you hide the negative effects of lack of sleep, we've prepared a short list with easy-to-follow tips, to help you add radiance and freshness to your face.

Wash Your Face with Cold Water

Splashing your face with cold water will constrict your blood vessels and ultimately make your skin look more toned and plump. Also – it will wake you up faster than coffee.

Drink A Big Glass of Water with Lemons

Water infused with lemon will refresh and hydrate your body and your skin. You can add a spoon of honey if you don’t like the savoury taste of lemon.

Move Your Body

Physical activity will improve boost the blood circulation in your body, which will bring more nutrients to the skin. Nourished skin always looks better.


Exfoliation improves microcirculation and removes the dead cells from the surface of the skin. Pick a gentle scrub and apply it with circular massage motions. Your skin will become smoother and more glowing instantly!

Apply A Facial Mask

Applying a deeply hydrating facial mask is probably the best quick beauty fix if your face says “I am tired”. If you have 5 spare minutes to spend on yourself – do not hesitate it!

Hydrate Your Skin

Applying a light moisturizer, right after you are done exfoliating, will not only hydrate your skin but will also lock the moisture in so your skin can look fresh and glowing throughout the day. If you can combine your moisturizer with a serum for extra nourishment - even better!

Opt for Light Makeup

A light BB cream/tinted moisturizer + some blush should be enough to fake a "rested" look. Don’t go for full-coverage foundations or powders – instead of "masking" the lack of sleep, they might make your skin look even more tired. To finish the look, add a little bit of mascara + nude/rosy gloss, and you are good to go!

PS: And don’t forget to smile!
