Stayed up too late at night and had too little time in the morning to de-puff your eyes? All of us have been in that haunting situation. Those ugly sleep lines demand a lot of time in the morning to get fixed. So, how do you put everything in place when your scarcity of time leads you to choose between reaching work at time and fixing your appearance? Here is a guide that will help you resolve morning beauty conflicts and fool people at work that it was just traffic that got you late for work.
There is a whole list of habits which if done right before bed can wreck havoc on your looks in the morning. Too much alcohol, late night snacking or sleeplessness can cause fluid retention under the eyes giving a baggy appearance that you just won’t like to carry to work. To fix this problem quickly, grab an ice cube, run it under water and then wrap it in a paper towel. Massage your eyes using the cube while circling the eyes for a few minutes. Congratulations! The bags are deflated.
Sleep lines are your consolation prize for giving your body more sleep than what it needs. Yes, sarcasm! These temporary wrinkles appear when your skin gets folded for a long period of time. So, each time you pass out on your bed while smashing your face into the pillow, get prepared for some crease lines on your face. To reduce these lines, do some jumping jacks to get the blood flowing to the dents. This should be followed by a moisturizer application which contains hyaluronic acid and puts some water into your skin to pump it up temporarily.
When there is no time left to wash your dust-filled strands, grab the best remedy possible: dry shampoo. Spray some dry shampoo along the hairline and flip your hair upside down so that the product gets distributed evenly and your hair appears voluminous.
Running short of time in the morning means that you are left with few minutes in front of the mirror and only the makeup essentials can make it through the time crunch. Only a tinted moisturizer, concealer, cream blush and mascara should be part of your morning beauty hack gang. And if shortage of time makes you clumsy and you end up dropping brushes here and there, save yourself some time by using your fingers.
