Why do you look tired if you get enough sleep? You are not the only one and the problem is that even sleeping 8 hours a night, most adults live in a state of eternal exhaustion, stress, and anxiety, and this is reflected in their skin (in addition to affecting health).
Feeling tired affects your quality of life, productivity at work, and even your mood, but it can also affect your appearance. Dark circles and puffiness appear, the skin looks dull and lifeless, and if all of this doesn’t sound like much to you, it adds years and makes you look much older than you are, and it’s something no one likes to see appear. Plus, it invites others to ask unsolicited questions and comments (the typical “do you look tired, are you okay?”), and it doesn’t do anything for your self-esteem and safety.
In the movie Welcome to the Robinsons, the protagonist continues to make noise all night, which leads to his little roommate Goob not being able to sleep. Exhausted, Goob couldn’t play well at his baseball games, couldn’t concentrate, and was always in a bad mood, plus his eyes were hollow and highlighted with dark circles, and as an adult, he looked even worse, and that’s something that can happen to anyone who doesn’t get enough sleep.
Some people seem to suffer from a chronic problem, but, as with everything, there is a solution, in the form of small steps to be taken every day to reverse the situation and achieve fresher, more awake skin and an overall younger appearance.

Use a scrub
