Hey, we’re not here to judge. Some of these quarantine nights can get rowdy, and we all know you’re going to have to pull yourself together to hop on that Zoom call. Even in times like these, there’s no escape, and sometimes you just need to hide the traces of your crazy night in. Here are some grooming tips to have you ready to go as soon as your boss logs onto the video call:

 

Ice it

This is not shock therapy, but believe it or not, rubbing a cube of ice on your face reduces puffiness and makes your skin tighten itself so you look wide awake.

 

Splash it

For the faint of heart, ice may not be the way to go, but you can replace that with a couple of splashes of cold water. This helps hydrate your skin instantly and rejuvenate any cells that may require it.

 

Mask it

If you somehow manage to wake up a little early and have some time to put on a face mask, do it. It’s the best way to give your face the hydration it needs to look alive. If you don’t have a mask on hand, making one is easy: mash some blackberries, blueberries, or raspberries into a puree and apply directly to your skin for 20 minutes. It sounds weird, but the vitamins and antioxidants in the berries nourish and repair your skin.

 

Gel it

Having a couple of these Hydro Cool Firming Eye Gels can actually come in handy. The skin under your eyes takes the most beating from staying up late and dehydration. These 100% vegan and cruelty-free eye gels minimize puffiness and actually rejuvenate your skin in just ten minutes.
