Feeling exhausted? So often we hear and talk about feeling physically or mentally exhausted throughout our daily lives (enter caffeine for an instant boost). But the truth is, it’s not just that we FEEL exhausted…our skin can actually become exhausted as well. Do you ever look in the mirror and feel as though your skin looks…exhausted? Ok, so if you’re not quite sure what we mean by your skin looking exhausted, it’s actually exactly what it sounds like. If you notice that your skin looks dull and just ‘off’ it’s likely because your skin is suffering from exhaustion. We can all experience skin exhaustion from time to time, but if you’re ready to take your skin from exhausted to vibrant you’re going to want to keep on reading.
Give Your Diet A Boost
One of the culprits that can cause our skin to become exhausted is a less-than-amazing diet. Let’s face it, we’re all constantly on the go and it can be difficult to stick to a healthy diet routine. However, if you really want to get that vibrancy back into your skin it’s going to need to be something you make more time for. Experts suggest taking it a step further: of course, you’ll want to eat more nutritionally balanced foods and less processed options, but it’s also wise to incorporate foods that have energy-boosting ingredients. You know how you need the energy to feel less exhausted? Well, the same things apply to your skin! To get you started, look for foods that are high in vitamin C as they’re known to be a great energy-boosting source.
Incorporate An Energy-Boosting Skin Care Product
Yes, this is a real thing. Like we said, our skin can get exhausted just like we can and while we often think of sources we have to fight our physical exhaustion…there are similar sources to help with our skin’s exhaustion. So what exactly is an energy-boosting skin care product? Well, similar to the food we eat, experts suggest looking for a skincare product (most likely a face cream/ serum) that’s loaded with vitamin C and antioxidants.
These two ingredients have been found to help give your skin the energy boost it’s craving when it’s exhausted. Don’t think that these types of energy-boosting products take a long time to give your skin energy; they’ve been found to help give your skin the energy it needs within just a few hours after applying them. They’re great for adding hydration and moisture to the skin, too, which really helps give your skin that boost it needs when it’s exhausted. Of course, using quality skin care products is something you’ll want to do all the time – when you begin to notice that your skin is looking exhausted you’re going to want to reach for the energy-boosting products/ingredients first to really get that dose of energy.
Of course, we can’t forget to mention how essential sleep is to helping with skin exhaustion. While we’re asleep our body works to repair itself – and its exhaustion levels. So be sure to make catching some z’s a priority.
