Key Messages:
•       Scrub It: The repair work that's supposed to happen in the skin at night includes the natural whisking away of dead cells that leave your complexion looking dull and ashen. A good face exfoliation in the morning can do much the same thing quickly.
•       Chill Out: It may not sound appealing, but it works: A cool shower stimulates circulation in your body and research has shown that lowering the temperature just a few degrees can make you feel more awake.
•       Moisturize Well: Lack of sleep can compromise your skin's moisture barrier and lead to dehydration that accentuates any fine lines, which just makes you look even more tired.
•       Pop a Pill: If your eyes look bloodshot and puffy even if you went to bed by 10 o'clock, the culprit could be allergies.  Consider taking an antihistamine if you have recurrent puffy eyes or dark circles; you should know in a week or two if it's working on circles.
•       Add Sparkle: Put just a tiny touch of shimmer cream right in that little hollow in the inner corners of the eyes. It instantly makes you look refreshed."
