Life is full of obligations and responsibilities, topping it off with stress and lack of sleep can leave our face looking haggard and worn out. If you find yourself looking tired all the time, then you need to find out now the reasons and eradicate them once and for all to improve your overall appearance.
Here are some reasons that you might look exhausted and haggard all of the time and what you need to do, to fix them:
Stress is the worst enemy for your face, as it increases the cortisol levels, which cause the blood circulation to be pumped though your vital organs more frequently, and not your face. This can leave your face looking tired, swollen and lacking vitality.
To combat stress you need to slow down your daily routine and take 20 minutes each day to disconnect from life. If you feel overwhelmed with worries, maybe try doing some relaxing breathing exercises to help you regain control of your thoughts.
Lack of water
Our bodies are composed of 70% water, so lack of water equals constipation, tiredness, headaches and fatigued skin. You need to drink at least 8 cups of plain water a day, this will help your skin rebuild tissues and maintain the elasticity of your skin.
The simple solution to refresh your skin is providing it with the element it needs most throughout the day – pure water. Hydration will eliminate scars, acne and signs of aging such as wrinkles and baggy eyes.
Too much sun exposure
Ultra violent lights are the biggest enemy for your beautiful and healthy skin. Sun damage breaks down the collagen in your skin, hence increasing the unwanted signs of aging. Plus it will greatly increase your chances of having skin cancer later on in life.
Your best friend in combating your exposure is not by hiding out, inside of your house all summer but by using a good quality sun protector that has at least 30 + SPF. Make sure you wear it anytime you step outside, even if you are just driving the car from point A to point B.
Not sleeping enough
Lack of sleep or poor sleeping patterns can affect your overall health, such as cardio vascular diseases, weight gain and diabetes. But, it also shows up on your face, leaving your face with that unmistakable too-little-sleep look and those puffy, baggy eyes.
Studies have proven that adults need between seven to eight hours of sleep each night. That is why you need to change your sleeping habits as soon as possible to look your best. Within a few nights of rest, you will notice a difference in your face.
Bad facial care habits
Your skin is exposed to the elements daily that leaves it looking dry and weary. Often we live and work in environments that suck the moisture out of everything, including our faces, so we need to hydrate our skin. Otherwise, our skin will suffer long-term damage.
Establish a daily facial care routine that includes a hydrating day and night cream that contains a serum of vitamins. Plus, never ever go to bed with your makeup on, always take the time to remove your makeup before crawling into bed. Trust us you will notice a difference within a few days.
