As we spring ahead again and adjust our internal clocks for daylight savings, we must be prepared for those mornings when sleep doesn’t come naturally, a condition known as Daylight Savings Hangover. The good news is that there is a way to look refreshed and awake – even if your sleep schedule is in the dumps.

Tip 1: Try a morning workout to get motivated and feel energised for the day. Take a quick run or hit an early morning spin class. Be sure to challenge yourself first thing and then see how much easier your morning commute feels.

Tip 2: Great-looking skin isn’t just about what you put on it, but also what you put in your body. Skip that morning cup of coffee, which can be dehydrating, and drink a glass of ice water instead. The cold water will not only give you a kick in the morning, but also help hydrate skin, leaving it looking and feeling refreshed.

Tip 3: Use a hydrating and stimulating makeup like. These products contain essential minerals and ingredients, such as cucumber and aloe, which soothe and hydrate skin. Some also have encapsulated water technology—once the powder touches your skin, it releases a cooling sensation that gives you an added boost in the morning.

Tip 4: Do not skip your breakfast. You’ve worked out, you’ve hydrated, you’re looking gorgeous. Why deny your body the nutrients it needs.
