Do You Look Overtired?
Mothers of small children are some of the least-rested groups of people around. If you don't have time to sleep you probably don't have time to run to the spa and get a professional facial or wrap, and don't even think about a massage. Instead, let's look into some easy remedies for that telltale exhausted look. You can do these at home, so even if you don't feel that great, you can still look your best.
The first thing that people notice when they encounter a sleep-deprived person is their puffy, red, tired eyes. You can downplay this with a few easy techniques.
Although it seems counterintuitive, the more bloated or puffy you feel, the more water you need to drink. The more water you drink, the better. This is because your body's organs need water to perform a myriad of daily tasks and if you don't provide them with a constant supply then it will retain any water currently within it.
Your first line of defense in combating puffy eyes is to be sure you drink your 8-10 glasses of water daily. If you know you won't get much sleep before you lay down for bed, try to down a glass or two prior to getting your shuteye.
Just like how athletes use cold compresses on their inflamed muscles, you should use them on your inflamed eye area. Cucumbers are the go-to item, both for their convenience and their cost-effectiveness.
