Body & bath
First thing in the morning, give yourself a quick face massage to boost your circulation and help to de-puff your skin. If time is an issue, do it in the shower. Use a good exfoliator to get rid of dry skin cells and brighten your skin tone.

They might give you a quick fix, but they can also lead to red, puffy eyes, flushed skin and congested pores. So aim for foods that release their energy slowly, such as fruit and vegetables.
Try placing slices of cucumber over your eyes for a few minutes, to soothe that sore, gritty feeling and de-puff bags. An even better option is Yes To Cucumbers Soothing Eye Gelwhich contains cucumber extract, along with other soothing ingredients, including aloe vera, chamomile, Dead Sea minerals and spirulina.

A fake tan can help you to appear healthier and brighter, but only if it looks natural. We offer a wide range of natural self-tansincluding sprays, lotions and oils. They all use innovative ingredients, such as sugar-derived dihydroxyacetone, along with skin-loving moisturisers such as rosehip oil, to give you a healthy, even, natural-looking tan.
Try a lighter BB or CC cream instead, as they can also help to boost hydration while covering imperfections and giving you a more dewy, youthful glow. It brightens skin, smooths fine lines and evens out skin tone. As an added bonus, it has an SPF of 30, and contains healing Vitamin A, so will help to protect your skin from further damage. Strategically placed highlighter can make your whole face look brighter and fresher. It can help to hide.
We like Lavera Soft Glowing Highlighter. Dot the highlighter across your forehead, under your eyes and in the creases of your nose and chin. A dab of highlighter in the inner corner of your eyes can also help you to look more awake.
Blend it with a makeup sponge or your finger. Be careful not to use too much, or you could end up looking too pale or shiny. As the saying goes, fresh air can really blow the cobwebs away. Do you often struggle to get enough sleep?
