We all know the importance of getting enough sleep.
Unfortunately, though, our busy lifestyles make it all but impossible for most of us to get as much shuteye as we truly need.
This leaves us feeling totally exhausted, and often, we wear our tiredness on our faces in the form of puffy, tired-looking eyes.
The best solution to this problem is, of course, getting more sleep. That isn’t always a possibility, though.
And some people have tired, puffy eyes even after getting a good night’s sleep.
So, what can you do to make yourself look more awake and alert? Splashing cool water on your face is an option, but it certainly isn’t the best one.
If you want to transform your tired, puffy eyes and look like you slept like a baby, try a jade mask.
What Is a Jade Mask?
A jade mask is a facial mask that’s made from genuine jade stone beads. The beads are strung together to create an eye mask that is as effective as it is beautiful. People have used jade for healing purposes for thousands of years.
In fact, jade masks have been used by Chinese empresses since ancient times.
How Does it Work?
Jade is a naturally cool stone, which causes it to constrict the blood vessels in your skin. In doing so, it reduces puffiness. For even more de-puffing magic, try placing your mask in the refrigerator for a while before applying it to your skin.
Natural jade is also believed to deliver healing energy to the kidneys, liver, and gallbladder. It detoxifies and soothes stressed-out organs and helps prevent lymphatic drainage. This can help decrease puffiness in your face and leave you feeling better and more awake.
How to Use a Jade Mask
Jade masks couldn’t be easier to use. All you have to do is place it on your face then lie back and relax. You can wear the mask for as long as you feel like you need to. Of course, you will likely get better results if you leave it on for more than just a couple minutes.
When using your mask, take long breaths, and relax. This will help you release tension from your body and face, which could also give you a more rested, rejuvenated appearance.
If you use facial moisturizer or serums, apply them before using your mask. The coolness of the jade closes the pores, so it can help seal these products in your skin.
The Bottom Line
If you are tired of going through your day looking like you are exhausted because of your puffy eyes, a jade face mask could be the solution.
While it, obviously, is not a substitute for a good night’s sleep, it could reduce signs of sleepiness and make you look more alert as you go about your day.
