I traveled an absurd amount over the past week. From catching a red-eye to the West (best) Coast to a red-eye two days later home AND then a 10-hour drive to Texas the same day, I realized how easy it is to be tired. Yes, that’s a real sentence. I also realized as I sat on my couch, exhausted, that stress & anxiety sometimes take over and sleep and self-care fall on the back burner.
There’s really nothing worse than hearing that you look tired. Also why is that still a thing? I totally am aware when I’m looking rough but knowing that everyone else can see the bags under my eyes that are so not designer is the worst.
So is there a magical, fairy godmother that can come in and fix our tired eyes? YES! I’m so not kidding and I’ve found the secret weapon thanks to one of my favorite brands!
I’ve been using VIIcode for the past year or so and am a huge advocate for their products. As baseball season has been in full swing (pun intended) I’ve been lacking sleep and adding on the stress. I recently started using the O2M Oxygen Eye Mask and boy oh boy does it change my mornings. I even put the eye masks on while I was on my flight and had so many questions about what they were and how they work!
The next day at Margaux’s “I Do BBQ,” no one could believe that I was running on three hours of sleep and on Monday in Waco, my friends and family couldn’t tell I didn’t sleep at all on Sunday night! Pure magic.
So here’s my red-eye, nightly secret…
Before I go to bed, I wash my face with an exfoliating scrub and let it completely dry. Then, I pull out my handy O2M Oxygen Eye Mask for All Night Repair and sleep through the night. I usually only sleep for 6 hours, but these babies are good to keep on for 8 and they so help the bags and stress that I carry on my face. When I wake up, I rinse my face with water and use the O2.0 Oxygen Hydrating Eye Spray to help me brighten and tighten up my eyes.
So, basically, I’m saying run and don’t walk to your nearest computer and get to ordering. I get that there are a million different ways to look your best, but nothing has stood the test of time quite like my VIIcode products and I really cannot recommend them enough.
