How to Get Sleep Marks Off the Face in the Morning

By Jaimie Zinski

There's just one unfortunate side effect of a restful night of sleep: sleep marks on your face. It's been known to happen during a blissful massage, too. Can't be having those marks on your face when you're just trying to get on with your day! Here's how to get rid of them faster.

Step 1

Slap your face lightly with your hands. This helps stimulate circulation to make the skin look firmer.

Step 2

Splash cold water on your face. Use ice water, if available, to help increase blood flow and plump skin up.

Step 3

Massage a facial moisturizer into the skin. This helps hydrate and plump the skin while the massaging motion helps diminish the wrinkles.
