With the World Cup heating up, here are some life savings beauty products to banish those signs of fatigue & over indulgence :
Puffy eyes – it’s okay to weep when your favourite team is lossing, just make sure you use a great eye tonic to soothe the redness & a cooling gel to get rid of the swelling. I like Liz Earle’s Eyebright Soothing Eye Lotion and Clinique’s All About Eyes Serum De-Puffing Eye Massage.
Dark circles – this kind of sport events could be aired at a very inconvenient time, depends on where you are. The products that I find working are Yves Saint Laurent’s Radiant Touch or Peter Thomas Roth’s Un-Wrinkle Concealer & Brightener.
Until now, I had not came across any eye cream / gel / serum that actually deal with dark circles effectively. Plenty of too good to be true claims but non of these actually deliver, so I am turning to make up products, at least these provide a quick but temporary fix.
Swallow skin tone & sluggish circulation – due to disrupted circadian rhythm, your complexion may suffer from dullness & becomes lack lustre. I like to boost my circulation with Eve Lom’s Rescue Mask, Elemis’s Visible Brilliance.
Chanel’s Vitalumiere Compact Foundation hides a multitude of sins; It’s my must have foundation for jet lag. Also, a cream blusher is more forgiving than the powder version when your skin is not in tip top condition. NARS Multiples or Elizabeth Arden’s Ceramide Cream Blush are very flattering & easy to apply.
Blemishes – annoying zits will pop out when you are physically & emotionally challenged. I use Peter Thomas Ruth’s Acne Spot & Area Treatment.
Cellulites – too many drinks & crispy while watching the game ? Start scrubbing & oiling up, you could have a toned physique like some of the players too. I like Elemis’s Exotic Lime and Ginger Salt Glow, Elemental Herbology’s Detox Bath Oil & Clarins Body Shaping Supplement.
