I just got off a crazy 24h work trip and these tips are tried and tested -the best way to look good is to get your sleep when you can- but these tips keep you looking fresh and away even when you could sleep standing up!

A good night’s sleep on a regular basis will keep you looking rejuvenated. However, for those nights when this isn’t possible, there are still options to keep you from looking like a zombie the day after. Here are a few simple tips for beating the puffy eyes.


Feed your fatigue


The right foods for breakfast can energise you and help you to look less drained. Blueberries, apples and tea are great for relaxing arteries and increasing blood flow. This can help return colour to your face and keep you more alert by providing your face and eyes with a fresh source of oxygen.


Cut back on coffee


Whilst a cup of strong coffee will temporarily energise you, too much coffee throughout the day can have the adverse effect. The caffeine will constantly pump your body with adrenalin, which can make you overly alert to the point that you can’t focus on any one thing for too long. Too much caffeine can also trigger the stress hormone cortisol which makes your skin more reactive to spots and allergic reactions. On top of this, too much caffeine throughout the day can affect your sleep the following night – so you could end up back in the exact same situation.


Fix up with a cold flannel


Soaking your face with a cold flannel is an easy way to reduce the puffiness under your eyes. The cold water will constrict blood vessels which cause the bags under our eyes. Do this in the morning and throughout the day and the swelling will be kept at bay.


Clear up your complexion with cosmetics


Many people will choose to mask their tiredness with make-up. Your eyes are the most common place where tiredness shows and where bags appear will depend largely on the shape of your face. Various cosmetics such as V shape face serum can help to hide those bags, taking the shape of you face into account. Special eye creams meanwhile can also have the same effect as a cold flannel.


For bringing colour to a pallid face, blushers and concealers are ideal for the job. Choose warm tones that will give your face that glow, but be aware of going overboard. When considering concealers, peach may look more natural than full-on yellow (obviously dependent on your skin tone).


Finally, you can top of the whole look with a refresher spray that will help to hide any dryness. It’s useful to keep these sprays in the fridge so that they will be cool, helping to bring down the puffiness.


Curl your lashes


Your lashes can also make a huge difference. Curled lashes make your eyes look more open, giving the impression that you’re more awake. Lengthening mascara can also be used on top of this to make your eyes even bigger.


The idea of beauty is as old as mankind. For some, beauty is all about symmetry, especially when it comes to facial symmetry which influences the judgment of aesthetics and physical attractiveness. When it comes to sex appeal, people are more naturally attracted to those who show symmetrical features. But it’s not always the case. More and more individuals describe beauty as the results of asymmetrical features arranged harmoniously. In other words, beauty is a tricky concept to explain. It is something that we all want to feel when we look in the mirror. We want to see beauty, to embrace it and to feel it. We want to be beautiful, even though we find it tricky to describe what beautiful should be. You might have found yourself pointing at a picture in a magazine and calling it beautiful, despite knowing that nothing in the picture is real. But in the end, beauty is how you should feel about yourself. Here’s how to tackle your demons and feel beautiful.

Feel beautiful


Feel Confident About Your Style

Fashion is the creative expression of your personality. It can be playful; it can be attractive, it can be relaxed. What matters is that it makes you feel positive about yourself. The secret is to dress appropriately for any occasion. What this means is that you will not feel confident if you are overdressed or underdressed. Being appropriate also means that you are less likely to struggle with the strange looks that some people might give you. Additionally, you need to dress comfortably. In other words, while high heels can be a seductive accessory, if you don’t feel confident walking in them, you will not look good wearing them.

Feel In Control Of Your Flaws

Nobody is perfect. You need to know that and to believe it. Nobody, even the girl in the magazine, has the perfect body, the perfect skin or the perfect teeth. Everyone cheats from time to time to keep control of their little flaws. For instance, some girls use makeup foundation to cover bad acne scars. Other hide their bits and bumps with functional underwear. And those who are worried about showing signs of age, use professional facial skin tightening surgery to hide their true age. So it’s important that you understand your flaws and that you find the best way to control them. The only way to be confident about your appearance is to manage effectively the little bits that you feel the most sensitive about.

Feeling beautiful is a feeling that most people don’t allow themselves. It is said to be the reward of hard work. Consequently, you should work on it! If you are not happy with the way your clothes hang on your body, you can exercise to change it. The magic about exercising is that it releases a happy hormone that helps you to relax and feel better about yourself. You’re sweaty, you’re out of breath, and your muscles are sore. But you feel positive about your body. It may not be perfect, but with it’ll get there.

Many people find that they are not quite as happy with their body as they would hope. This could be the case from a health perspective, a purely cosmetic perspective, or a combination of the two. Either way, this kind of concern is something that you always want to deal with as soon as possible – and in a way which makes as much sense to you as it can. In this post, we are going to look at some of the major key concerns which most people have when it comes to their physical being.

Health Concerns


It is always important to keep in mind the many faceted ways in which health plays a part in bodily attractiveness. If there is anything about your physical body which you are not entirely happy with, you should first think about whether you can improve your health practices. Chances are, there is something you can do – after all, none of us is perfectly healthy all the time. No sleep is a common cause of poor looks, as it can have a negative impact on the skin if you do not get enough of it. Similarly, you should make sure to pay attention to your diet, as this affects how you look in ways too numerous to mention. On top of that, put effort into ensuring that you keep up with your exercise regime. As long as you are paying attention to these three – your attractiveness holy trinity – you should find that you are able to stay on top of how you look much more easily. All else will follow in time.

Bodily Worries


If you find that you have some negative opinions about specific parts of your body, it might be that you need to take some kind of action beyond just looking after yourself in the normal way. Exercise, good diet and plenty of sleep are going to get you a certain distance, but ultimately won’t change the actual shape of your body parts. If you have a desire to change something permanently, then you should take care to ensure that you really want to do so. When you go out to try and find a breast implant surgeon, or a facial lift surgeon, you need to be confident that you are in the right hands. The last thing you want is to have to worry about the outcome, so looking around for someone you really trust is important.

Face & Skin
For many people, the main problem is with their skin, which lies somewhere between the previous two as a cosmetic concern. Taking care of your health in the normal ways is going to help your skin be at its most attractive best – but you might also want to carry out specific practices to keep it looking as good as possible too. Washing regularly (but not excessively), moisturising, and keeping out of the high midday sun are all worthwhile in this respect. Then you can be sure that you are really doing everything you can to look your best.

Sleep for at Least 7 Hours


Beauty sleep isn’t a myth, especially when it comes to the skin. If you can’t beauty budget doesn’t stretch to ulthera skin lifting, try sleeping for at least 7 hours each night to get rid of those problematic eye bags and dark circles instead. Getting enough sleep will also help your skin to repair and regenerate itself for a more flawless look.


Exfoliate Regularly


Our skin is constantly regenerating, and when this happens, dead skin cells are left on our body, causing the skin to look dull, flaky and dry. To prevent this, it is essential that we exfoliate regularly. Some people find that they need to exfoliate every day, but for others, this is too much and can cause redness. You need to work out your ideal exfoliation rate and stick to it if you want your skin to always look great.


Cleanse, Tone and Moisturize Daily

Flawless skin doesn’t just happen, well not for most of us anyway. You have to work at it, and this means cleansing, toning and moisturizing your face twice daily. You don’t have to buy the most expensive products on the market, but you do need to make skin care part of your regular routine is you want to see results.


Cleansing helps to get rid of dirt and oil. Which dulls the skin and causes breakouts, toning helps to maintain the skin’s tightness and elasticity and moisturizing keeps it hydrated for the kind of youthful radiance we all want.




Yes, it seems like every beauty related post recommends exercise, but in the case of skin health, at least it really is important. You see if you exercise moderately for at least

30 minutes each day, not only will you sport a natural glow, but any signs of aging visible in the skin will slow down and could even be reversed according to some studies. So, strap on your running shoes and start pounding the pavement right now!

Last, but by no means least, you should think about cutting down your sugar intake as much as possible because sugar is known to weaken collagen in the skin, making it more likely that you’ll get wrinkles.
