I’m sure I’m not the only person who has awakened in the middle of the night with anxiety lately, trying to recall if I put on hand sanitizer before touching my face, or tossing because I feel a tickle in my throat. As someone who already deals with anxiety, the rise of COVID-19 has magnified my worry tenfold, making it harder and harder to get a full night’s sleep. When I finally climb out of bed after hours of tossing and turning, I’ve got panda eyes, which is even more obvious on Zoom calls because of the unflattering overhead lighting in my home.
I’ve taken to putting on these Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads first thing in the morning. I like to multitask by using them while I meditate using the Core meditation trainer. The gel feels cooling, and the pads are soaked in hyaluronic acid and hydrolyzed collagen to help plump skin temporarily. After 20 minutes of wearing them while listening to uplifting mantras and writing in my journal, I’m left with a sense of calm and a face that looks halfway rested. Unfortunately, while the de-puffing effects last throughout the day, the stress returns by lunchtime.
You’ll find the Wilma Schumann Hydrating Collagen Eye Pads in our September 2020 Allure Beauty Box.
