This Is Why Everyone Kept Telling Me That My Skin Looked So Good

Like everyone else, during the week I only get about six hours of sleep. No, it's not because I'm always working late or that I'm spending time in the gym. I'm usually reading Reddit or scrolling through Instagram. I know, super-cool life. Despite the fact that I've read studies on how the lack of sleep can kill you and I know you need at least eight hours a night, I'm usually still awake at 11 p.m. when I know I have to be up by 6 a.m. the following morning. And when you add up the amount of lost sleep over the course of a week, I tend to start looking a bit bedraggled (not totally unlike Mrs Twit). To help, I usually turn to beauty products to give my dulled complexion a boost—in other words, I will slap on the concealer and foundation with abandon.

But my tactic is flawed. It shouldn't just be about covering up my dull, tired skin. If I really can't get enough sleep, then the best way to prevent looking tired the next day is slathering on a decent night cream or oil to make sure my skin looks rejuvenated. Recently, I discovered a new product that combines oils and creams, and I got so many compliments afterwards that of course I had to share. Keep scrolling to find out exactly what this new miracle cream is and where to buy it right now…
