It feels refreshing not to wear anything on your face sometimes, and it's even better when you look great even without makeup on. Here, we share several tips and tricks to brighten up your face sans an ounce of foundation.
1. Use a face mist.
A few spritzes of a toning mist kicks in bursts of freshness to skin. Pick one mixed with essential oils, plant, or floral extracts for a light, hydrating boost.

To look more awake and recharged, dab an eye cream with caffeine to bring a jolt to your under-eye area.

3. Whiten your teeth.
Flashing your pearly whites is key in looking fresh! Apart from teeth-whitening treatments you can get from your dentist, there are toothpastes and mouthwashes that will help rid of teeth discoloration.

4. Treat your lips.
The condition of your lips reflect one's health, so if they are soft and kissable, you'll appear more fresh. A thin layer of this lip balm with a touch of honey delivers pillowy puckers.

5. Give your hair a voluminous oomph.
Flat and limp hair will make you look blah and tired. Bring life to your locks by flipping your head over, spritz on hairspray on the roots, and flip over. This is the fastest way to lift your roots, and you don't even need a blowdryer!
