WAKING up fresh and pretty is every woman's dream. But as we age, the daily pressures of our lives take a toll on our complexion.

These past few months, I have been in the lookout for skincare tips that will bring back the youthful glow of my face. After months of trying out products, I have summed up five of the most useful tips to wake up unscathed despite a stressful week.

Here are the foolproof tips young professionals like me can try:

1. KKB Lashes and KKB Glow – Kayesthetics

Located at F. Bangoy Street, Kayesthetics offers the best semi-permanent make-up procedures. Whether you want a hint of color on your lips, have long and gorgeous lashes or attain the perfect Korean complexion, Kayesthetics never lets you down.

I tried their lash enhancement with semi-permanent mascara for only P 2,499. Not only does it lengthen your lashes, it also brightens your eyes. For two months, you will surely enjoy the dramatic effect it brings.

Where to do it: KayestheticsHub, walk-in alley, Ponciano Reyes Street.

2. Brown Sugar + Honey

For those who do not want to spend a dime, try using the brown sugar and honey scrub thrice a week. Immediately after waking up, combine two tablespoons of sugar and one tablespoon of honey. Scrub it on your face and lips until the sugar dissolves. Rinse it with water, pat it dry and you will notice the instant glow on the skin.

3. Laneige Water Sleeping Mask

This product it is truly effective. For P1,500, you can buy a tub that will last for two to three months. I have been using it for four months now and it is quite a steal. It makes your face radiant despite a hard day’s work. If you want to wake up fresh despite a grueling day, this is what you truly need.

4. DHC Collagen

I call these magic tablets. Pop two or three pills daily and you will have the glow you've always wanted. Collagen is responsible for giving the hair its strength and the elasticity our skin needs. In two months’ time, say goodbye to dark spots, wrinkles and dullness. For P899, these magic pills can give you the rosy glow without wearing any make-up on.

5. Aspirin Mask

You might find this quite unconventional but trust me, it works. Aspirin has anti-inflammatory properties that reduces uneven skin tone, puffiness and fights acne. Mash three tablets and mix it with ¼ teaspoon of warm water. Leave it for 10 minutes and see the results. You can also add honey to make it more soothing.

Where to buy: any local drugstore

Try these easy hacks and enjoy a beautiful morning as you wake up fresh and blooming.
