We can’t always wake up looking as bright eyed as we’d like. From the children keeping you awake, to staying up late to watch your favourite show or checking your Facebook (or Mumsnet!) account, it can all take a toll on us come morning.

Here’s what Liz Earle say “We are proud to announce that our secret for visibly brighter eyes, NEW Superskin™ Eye Cream, has arrived. This luxuriously hydrating new innovation features a powerful botanical blend which helps to visibly lift and firm, while also reducing the appearance of dark circles and puffiness. Used regularly, eyes appear brighter, refreshed and wide awake. Available now"! Check out the new Superskin™ eyecream here.

So, what are your top tips for waking up looking bright eyed? Do you leave the iPad, laptops and phones downstairs when you go to bed? Maybe you have a no-caffeine policy after dinner? Or maybe it’s as simple as getting a good night’s sleep. Whatever secret you turn to to help you wake up feeling fresh, Liz Earle wants to know it.

Everyone who posts on the thread with their tips will be entered into a prize draw where one lucky Mumsnetter will win the complete Liz Earle Superskin™ range, worth £305*. The range includes:

A cup of camomile tea before bed will help you get a good nights beauty sleep, but don't throw away the tea bags! Pop them in the fridge and then place them in your eyes in the morning to reduce puffiness

drinking lots of water or green tea really helps.
Definitely remove mascara!!!

LuckySantangelo1 Fri 01-Apr-16 16:45:23

Take off all make up, drink a large mug of hot water with fresh lemon and have an early night!

EverybodyHatesATourist Fri 01-Apr-16 17:55:56

Cut down on alcohol and take off every scrap of make-up before bed

betrayedandwobbly Fri 01-Apr-16 18:08:42

Less booze, and an exciting new lover who puts a spring in your step

elpth Fri 01-Apr-16 18:19:47

Simple: don't have kids lucky I was never bothered about sleep anyway

bluejasmin Fri 01-Apr-16 18:30:44

Take all your make up off at night and use a gentle eye make up remover .
Spray some essential oils with lavender on your pillow to help you relax and do a quick facial massage with oil to wake up looking refreshed and well rested .

Camomile and almond oil for when the skin under my eyes gets dry and serum to try to turn back time or at least slow it down a little. However, I have never found anything that reduces or really hides dark circles yet.

No caffeine after six pm. Avoid mobile phone /tablet screens 1 he pre bed. This fails when you are lying awake at 3am with restless legs, but is a great principle.
Avoid heavy meals late.

But my best tip is to not age, my skin tolerated poor sleep so much better 15years ago, and don't have small children. This will cure all eye bags, and come to think of it, many other issues too.

No booze, mascara off, coffee upon waking and wear glasses until your eyes have opened completely, everything shows through my eyes, this is what I do to reduce the 'you look tired' comments.

midnightmoomoo Fri 01-Apr-16 18:51:15

Make up off, and sleep in a quiet, dark room! And make sure the cat is tucked up downstairs to avoid middle of the night meowing!!

simbobs Fri 01-Apr-16 18:59:16

Keep well hydrated and lay off the booze. Making sure there is no residual eye make-up. Also, (I know this sounds poncey) try to make your first thought of the day a positive and happy one.

LadyIsabellaWrotham Fri 01-Apr-16 19:09:53

Turn the "night shift" mode on on your iPhone to remove the blue tones after 9pm. Better yet, turn your phone and telly off and curl up in bed with a Georgette Heyer.

DinosaursRoar Fri 01-Apr-16 19:11:57

Drinking lots of water, clean your make up off properly, don't drink lots of wine, get a decent amount of sleep.

I rarely wake up looking bright eyed, thank goodness for make up.

StillNoFuckingEyeDeer Fri 01-Apr-16 19:12:36

No caffeine, no alcohol, no children. This is why my eyes never look fresh.

purplepandas Fri 01-Apr-16 19:20:23

Also agree re taking make up off and getting a decent night's sleep.

HRHsherlockssextoy Fri 01-Apr-16 19:40:00

Get some decent sleep, wear an eye mask.
No iPad in bed, although this one I should listen to my own advice

acupofteafortwoormore Fri 01-Apr-16 19:40:40

Early to bed - or bed before you are exhausted as many times in the week as you can. No caffeine after 4pm, lots of water & not using normal moisturiser or heavy creams in the delicate eye area.

Namechangingbastard Fri 01-Apr-16 20:01:10

Warm bed and cool room. Never fails for me!

asuwere Fri 01-Apr-16 20:03:43

Yy to no children! smile
Silk pillowcase also stops creases and makes eyes look better first thing.

lebkucken Fri 01-Apr-16 20:40:03

I read on mn that sleeping on your bag helps avoid under eyes wrinkles so I try and do that. Otherwise all the boring stuff: not too much booze, enough sleep, plus eye drops and make up on a bad day!

CrotchetQuaverMinim Fri 01-Apr-16 20:40:15

Using filters on the computer/phone to block blue light in order to fall asleep faster, and trying not to turn on the lights if I need to get up in the night, so that I can go back to sleep faster - anything to increase the amount of sleep!

lebkucken Fri 01-Apr-16 20:41:07

Whoops, not sleeping on your bag, I mean your back!

foxessocks Fri 01-Apr-16 20:51:09

Get enough sleep! At least 8 hours. I like more personally...
