How to Look Awake and Refreshed (when you aren’t)



Let’s face it after the year+ we all have had we could all use a little help looking a bit more refreshed, am I right? I’m currently navigating life with a sweet newborn and our little boy who is out of school for the Summer. It’s been a pretty seamless adjustment and when I say my heart is full I truly mean it. Every day has its own adventures and caring for our little ones is so much fun! But, by the end of the day I’m TIRED. Have a few tricks up my sleeve to care for myself even with our full schedules has been a PRIORITY for me. So, how do I accomplish this? Let me share what works for me….

  1. Hydrate always. If you know me, you know I’m the worst at water intake. I’m stubborn and just don’t like the taste of water. Annoying, I know. BUT, I know that i’m my best self when I’m hydrated and not sluggish. Plus, i’ve got to set a good example for the tiny humans. I got myself a cute little thermos and try to continue to refill it throughout the day. I need all the hydrating running after 2 kiddos.
  2. Start each morning with a shower. This was a non-negotiable for me. I know it can seem tempting to try to sneak in a shower during the day during nap time, or quiet time etc. But for me, I have to get my shower in before my Husband leaves for work. I know I’ll have that un-interrupted time to care for myself and starting the day feeling fresh sets my day up for success. It’s the little things that really help make me feel refreshed.
  3. Countermatch Eye Rescue Cream. My absolute favorite eye cream to give my tired eyes a little pep! Formulated for the delicate eye area, this cream awakens eyes with hydrating squalane. Helps to boost oxygenation and while reducing the appearance of shadows and puffiness. — After a long night of feeding my newborn this is EXACTLY what I need to help me look awake and refreshed! I love that it gently exfoliates to aid in skin cell turnover, which helps skin breathe for a natural glow. A must have!

What are the things that you do for yourself to help you look awake + refreshed on the days that you aren’t?
