A Guide To Waking Up With Prettier Skin
When Instagram filters and Meitu don't work for your eye bags and dull skin IRL, a girl has to make do. #WokeUpLikeThis| February 22, 2017
Here’s a secret: most people aren’t automatically blessed with Instagram-perfect skin. Unless you’re a newborn baby, flawless skin is a near impossibility, but that doesn’t mean you can’t wake up with great skin. It’s not rocket science, however; spend 10 minutes applying these products before bed to help put your best face forward in the morning. Pair them with these overnight sleeping masks, and you can tell everyone you literally woke up like this, gurl.
Princes to kiss you awake don’t exist in real life, but the confidence that comes with having soft, supple lips is real, which is why Laneige has graced us with their Lip Sleeping Mask. While you’re at it, why not give your eyes some tender loving care as well, with the Eve Lom Time Retreat Eye Treatment, which promises collagen production and softens fine lines.
Your face needs some attention too – obviously – and Caudalie’s Beauty Elixir is a mist that instantly boosts radiance. Taylor Swift and Solange Knowles’ stylist swears by it. For the hardworking, nightly application of Estee Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair cream will also give you younger looking and rehydrated skin.
For those who like to go the distance, massage Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Concentrate under your moisturiser to wake up to smoother skin. If you have some extra time, pamper yourself with Sisley’s Black Rose Cream Mask, which is rich in anti-ageing ingredient promises a luminous complexion. And always remember mum’s advice: drink plenty of water and get sufficient sleep every night. Mums know best.
