Guys, if you are anything like me then you probably spend too much time working. Whether you’re burning the midnight oil staring at a computer screen or if you’re on site at a big job for 12-14 hours a day there’s a good chance you look tired.
Spending a ton of time in front of the computer screen is not only killing your soul but it’s taking a toll on your face as well. Toss in a lack of sleep and you’ve really whipped up the perfect cocktail for tired looking eyes.
The good news is that you can reverse some of the effects that you’ve so painfully had to endure over the years. I’ve got a few tips for you to take note of. For starters, get some damn sleep will ya!
Look Less Tired By Doing A few Simple Things
Don’t worry, if you’re a hedge fund manager or a construction worker you’ll be able to completely understand and adhere to what I’m about to say. It doesn’t take a rocket scientist to understand anything I’m about to share with you. Just listen carefully and take action. As a result, you will look less tired for sure.
Buy An Eye Cream And Use It
Sure, it’s relatively easy to walk into the store and pick up some eye cream for men. I get that, but what’s important is that you actually use it every single day! Make it part of your morning and evening ritual.
Using an eye cream will work quite well if you stay consistent and use it over time. Those signs of being tired and weathered will soon dissipate. We’ve recommended eye creams and serums on numerous occasions. Just take a look around the site you will see a few.
Tend To Dark Circles
The most noticeable trait of someone who is tired and overworked are dark rings around their eyes. It’s a dead giveaway that you’re completely exhausted. I’ve got a trick that you can attempt to try and cure your dark circles. Get yourself some green tea bags. Boil a half cup of water and let the tea bags soak in the hot water for 20 minutes or more.
Remove the tea bags from the water and place them in the refrigerator to cool for roughly 30 minutes. Place them on your eyes for half that and do your best to perform this routine a couple times each day. Goodbye, dark rings around the eyes.
Another option is to cover up your dark circles using concealer but most guys are not going to go for this route. I personally don’t use concealer as I rather stick to the tea bags.
Eye strain is caused by staring at a computer screen for too long. Do some eye exercises to help strengthen your eyes. A quick exercise you can do is to try blinking 100 times in a row in just 60 seconds or less. This will help re-hydrate your eyes and will give them a glowing appeal, not to mention strengthen them.
Massage Your Eyes
Tired eyes are often sore eyes and what a better way to heal them than getting a massage. Massaging the pressure points around your eye will help relax your eyes and make them look less sore. As a result, you won’t look nearly as tired as you may be.
Skin that isn’t hydrated looks dull and extremely tired. You’re best to drink water all day long if given the opportunity to do so. I typically stick to water and coffee, which you should read about here, throughout the day, nothing more.
If you take my advice, I can guarantee that you’ll look far less tired and your eyes won’t be so zombie-like. Just give these things a shot and let me know how it turns out. Good luck!
