Over the past couple of weeks, our once great sleeper has turned into a nightmare at night! Greyson has been waking up in the middle of the night and crying his poor head off. The second we go in his room, he falls asleep almost instantly on our chests and is happy once again. I am seriously hoping this is just a phase or sleep regression and we will be over this hurdle soon! He is showing signs of walking (he took two steps yesterday!) so I think that might have something to do with it.
In any case, the lack of sleep is causing serious bags around my under eyes and I look like a zombie! Thankfully, I discovered these 24K Gold Eye Treatment Masks on Amazon and they have been a life saver!
I put them in the fridge to give them an extra cooling effect and I must say that I have noticed a difference. These gel eye pads have collagen to help with firmness and elasticity, hyaluronic acid to help with hydration, and other antioxidants to help with overall skin health. I use them in the morning after I wake up, keep them on while I drink my coffee, and then dab in any extra liquid that might be left on my eyes.
I follow with my makeup routine as normal. On these tough mornings, I have been using this under eye concealer from IT Cosmetics which is a total game changer! Read more about it here! Just saw it comes in a travel size as well.
Greyson has been sleeping terribly the past few nights. If you saw my Instagram stories the other day, you know what I mean! The Nanit camera recorded his wake ups and detected sounds literally every 5-10 minutes 😳
On the bright side, a third bottom tooth is popping through and it appears that a top tooth is attempting to come through, too! My little man is growing up.
The lack of sleep has made my skin look less than ideal and I have such bad under eye bags that I look like a zombie. Each month, I get a Play! by Sephora (thanks to my amazing friend) that has 6 samples of beauty products. This is how I learned about IT Cosmetics. I loveee their under eye cream that came in one of my Play! boxes. IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Cream depuffs, hydrates, smooths, and brightens my tired looking eyes. I put it under my eyes after I clean my face in the morning and my eyes look instantly brighter!
After the under eye cream, I put a little IT Cosmetics Color Correcting Full Coverage CC cream (color Medium) all over my face and rub it in with a foundation brush. It has such great coverage for any blemishes, but I’ve noticed that my summer freckles still come through (as long as I don’t use too much!)
Finally, the absolute best under eye concealer I have ever used in my entire life is IT Cosmetics Bye Bye Under Eye Full Coverage Anti-Aging Waterproof Concealer (Color Light Nude). I use the smallest amount and dab it under my eyes in little dots. I like to use a lighter color for the under eye concealer, so that my eyes look bright and awake! I use a beauty blender to blend it in and my eyes look instantly more human! I cannot believe the difference in my eyes with this concealer. It is now one of my beauty staples!
