It's not always easy to get a good night's sleep, whether you're a new mom, were up all night with the kiddies, working late, or out dancing. Lack of sleep can make you look pretty exhausted, many times leaving your skin dull and your eyes dark and puffy. Luckily, there are ways to fake it! You can totally take action to make it look like you slept for hours, so that no one knows that you're short on shut-eye. This is especially helpful for all you new mamás out there, whose newborns have a schedule of their own.

Exfoliate

Your skin repairs cells that have been damaged during the day while you’re sleeping. It also buffs away dead skin cells that can leave your complexion looking dull. Exfoliating your face in the morning can have a similar affect. Make sure to choose a gentle formula that won’t leave your skin irritated and blotchy. I love Neutrogena Naturals Purifying Pore Scrub ($8).
