World of Kiehl's / How to wake up tired skin in 7 simple steps

It’s time to get your glow on!

In a hectic, always-on world, late nights, work stress and a bursting-at-the-seams social schedule can lead to a complexion that looks dull and fatigued. Stock your bathroom cabinet with products that are packed with radiance-boosting, energising formulas to wake up tired skin for a well-rested complexion every, single, day…

1. Don’t Wait, Exfoliate!

Kickstart your day by doubling down and exfoliating your skin while you cleanse to gently remove dirt, oil and pollution. Clearly Corrective Brightening & Exfoliating Cleanser cleanses and gently exfoliates the skin to visibly improve the look of overall skin clarity. Formulated with Pearlstone, a natural exfoliant, this skin brightening face wash smoothes and refines the feeling of skin for a more radiant appearance. It’s gentle enough to use morning and night, too!

2. Schedule a Radiance-Boosting Mask Moment.

Create an “instant facial” at home and give your complexion a zing with the skin brightening and radiance-boosting Turmeric & Cranberry Seed Energizing Radiance Mask. This exfoliating mask is ideal for the time-poor, as it works in just 10-minutes to leave skin feeling soft, smooth and looking invigorated.

3. Don’t Forget the Prep Step

The much-loved Iris Extract Activating Treatment Essence, containing sodium hyaluronate, hydrates and exfoliates the skin. Use it to prep your complexion so it’s ready to absorb all the active ingredients from the rest of your skincare routine. Simply pat a few drops onto your face after cleansing—it’s your fast-track ticket to radiant-looking skin.

4. Revive Skin, Daily!

Want to fight the appearance of fatigued skin daily for a more energised and radiant-looking complexion? Try the Daily Reviving Concentrate, this lightweight, non-comedogenic oil. With Ginger Root, Sunflower Oil and Tamanu Oil, the formula helps to keep skin looking fresh and healthy all day long.

5. Be on Eye Alert…

If your eyes look tired it’s tricky to disguise, so try factoring an eye serum into your routine. Kiehl’s Super Multi Corrective Eye Opening Serum, enriched with pro ceramide and sodium hyaluronate, smooths and hydrates for an eye area that looks more youthful and awake. Wear it alone or layer under an eye cream for a serious hydrating and smoothing boost!

6. Hydrate, Hydrate, Hydrate!

Invigorate stressed-out skin by focusing on hydration. Kiehl’s Skin Rescuer, with Glycerin, Centella Asiatica and Ceramides, is a stress-minimising daily hydrator that combats the appearance of the visible signs of stress on your complexion such as fatigue, dullness and uneven skin tone. Sounds good, right?

7. Activate That Glow

Give your skin a further boost of hydration and radiance with the Glow Formula Skin Hydrator. Infused with Pomegranate Extract and Illuminating Minerals, this formula hydrates the skin and boosts radiance instantly for a lasting glow. Wear it alone or under makeup for bright and happy-looking skin.

Top Wake-up Tip!

Get a head start on the next day by applying Midnight Recovery Concentrate before bed. Enriched with lavender essential oil, evening primrose oil and squalane, this soothing and calming oil hydrates, smooths and firms the skin while you sleep. It’s the busy woman’s skin saviour!
