Beauty Tips for Tired Mums
We all love a good night’s sleep that will make us feel refreshed and feeling wonderful, but as a mum a full eight hours sleep is a distant memory so if you can’t get a full night’s sleep then you need these beauty tips that will make even the most tired of mums feel wonderful.
Post pregnancy hormones and sleep deprivation can play havoc with water retention, but you are able to combat this with a cream mask. A cream mask will not set hard but they feel amazing and soak into the skin to make it feel hydrated and smooth. You can even leave a cream mask on overnight and allow it to soak into the skin so you feel fresh and glow.
A Cold Spoon
Puffy bags under your eyes are a sure sign of sleep deprivation. A quick fix that you can use is cold metal spoons on the eye which will help to tighten the skin. You can also shrink the tissue under the eye with a haemorrhoid cream or a natural stringent witch hazel.
Dark circles also become apparent when you do not get enough sleep. You can combat these dark circles by applying a concealer with a small brush and then blending it with your finger. An inexpensive option for medium to full coverage is the Maybelline Fit Me Concealer. If you prefer a matt finish then try the MAC Pro Longwear. If you need something stronger than a concentrated formula is the It Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Concealer.
Curl those Eyelashes
One way to make you look awake is to curl your eyelashes. This will make your eyes look more open and fresh looking.
A Quick Beauty Look

Your Eyebrows and Eyelashes
As a busy mum you should still make time for a professional eyebrow shape and eyelash tint.
