Hi, I'm 38. Have dryish skin and don't get a lot of sleep (recent baby).

How to look dewy and fresh again? 😉

I'm drinking water, trying to exercise etc but would love to hear other's top tips. For example are night creams worth it? Which ones? Any good you tube tutorials on make up for hiding bags?

All views appreciated! 😃

Beauty Flash Balm?

Water and more water, then slathering Astral everywhere. I feel your pain, it's weird but you kind of get used to be tired! :S

My faves are:

Benefit Dandelion Powder
Maybelline under eye concealer/brightener - it's the one with the twist-up and the sponge tip, called age erase or something.
A brightening primer - I like Nars and YSL but there are loads.

I also recommend cleansing with a good balm or cream - doesn't have to be expensive, Pond's Cold Cream is great - and a hot, wrung-out flannel. Acid tone with Pixi Glow or First Aid Beauty Pads, and whatever moisturiser suits you. And SPF!

Guerlain Midnight Secret. It's expensive, but you only need a tiny bit.

MAC strobe cream. You can get a smaller size to try. Can use alone, under foundation or mix with foundation.

I've actually heard of people using Strobe cream as night cream so they wake up looking luminous!

For the 18 months time that DS didn't sleep and I was working full time, the following were my saviours:

Superdrug B Replenishing Skin Oil (really cheap, especially when on deal but so good)
Beauty Flash Balm (applied thickly as a mask whenever I could)
Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum
YSL Touche Éclat or the Garnier under eye roll on concealer
White eyeliner on the inner corner of my eyes
Curling my eyelashes
