A good night’s sleep is written all over your face and body, making quality sleep an essential part of your daily routine. So, with one bad night of sleep, you can feel completely destroyed all day long. We talked to a bounty of experts to get their advice on what to do, eat, drink, think, and put on your face to not only look better, but more importantly, feel better. This is your go-to guide to faking your way into feeling better after a hard night’s sleep.

The classic go-to spa option has always been cooled cucumbers, which work well, too. “Cucumbers don’t contain any miraculous puffiness-reducing properties,” says Rouleau. “They do, however, have a gel-like consistency (from their seeds) that make them good for retaining cold temperatures.”  

A similar concept is a revitalizing eye mask, which can work wonders STAT. Kick it up a notch by storing it in the fridge. Patchology Rejuvenating Eye Gels, $5 for 15, reduces puffy, tired eyes very quickly.
