If you have ever had a family member, coworker or friend tell you “You look tired”, it’s their way of saying you look like crap and can cause you to feel self-conscious for the rest of the day. They could, however, be genuinely concerned about your appearance. Seasonal weather can have different effects on skin, even if you live in the same city.

Sometimes, even with a good eight hours of sleep, you can still look tired. Let’s have a look at some of the things that can cause of to look tired and how it can be prevented.

Insufficient Skincare

Having insufficient skincare or none at all will affect your your skin’s aging process. The main offender for looking tired is lack of skin elasticity. Beginning a good skincare routine is a great skin towards healthier, vibrant skin.

Aging and Loose Skin

Our collagen begins to drop due to loss of elasticity as we age. The eyes are effected the most because the surrounding skin is thin and delicate.

The smallest drop to our eyes can age us years because the fallen skin creates a depth. And if the skin is crepey, it will look dry making you look even more tired.

When cheeks lose collagen, it creates a wider gap between the cheeks and eyes causing it to look hollow. When this is combined with lose of elasticity it widens the hollow, creating dark circles.

Tired Look Due To Smoking

Skin need oxygen. The carbon monoxide in cigarettes displaces the much needed oxygen in your skin. Blood flow is decreased due to less oxygen causing the skin to be discolored. It can also impede your skin’s repairing process.

Lack Of Sleep

Recent studies reveal that sleep deprived people are less attractive and look sadder. Even though not getting a sufficient amount of sleep can cause bags to appear under your eyes, lack of rest can make dark circles more permanent.
