We’ve all been there. You were up all night and you’re feeling it the next day. You’re convinced you’ll never make it through the day and concerned that everyone will be able to tell.  Maybe you had a great night out with the girls.  Maybe your boss booked you on a red eye for that business meeting. Heck, maybe the baby kept you up all night. Either way, you need to learn how to look your best the morning after or you’ll scare everyone away.

How to Look Your Best the Morning After

There are a few tried and true things that you can do the morning after an all nighter. They won’t make you feel 100% on top of the world but they will get you through the day and hide the worst of the damage from your boss, coworker or friends. After your responsibilities are taken care of, head home for a quick power nap and make sure that you don’t pull another all nighter tomorrow night.  Our bodies can only handle so much.

  • Take a shower and give yourself a few minutes in the warm water to wake up and gather your thoughts.
  • Wash your face and remove any remnants of last night’s make up. Use an exfoliating scrub to wake up your skin and give you a rosy glow.
  • Place two cold teabags over your eyes to reduce the puffiness.
  • Add a few drops of Visine if your eyes are red. Blue eyeliner on your upper inner lash line will make the whites of your eyes look whiter.
  • Don’t forget the make up. You’ll look better and feel more confident. Remember to use concealer on the dark circles under your eyes.
  • Take a dose of Vitamin C to boost your immune system and ward of illness. When you get run down, you get sick easier.
  • Put on your favorite outfit that you feel confident in and get ready to face the world.
  • Before you head out the door, take along a package of Energems dietary supplement with caffeine & B-Vitamins for a boost of energy.

How to look your best the morning after

Energems are bite size supplements that taste like chocolate. There are three flavors: Mint, Chocolate and Peanut Butter.  Energems contain a proprietary energy blend that helps to enhance memory, focus and concentration. The proprietary energy blend contains D-Glucuronolactone, Taurine, Caffeine, and Suntheanine (L-Theanine).

One box, which contains nine candy supplements, is equal to three cups of coffee.  Energems are only 15 calories each (a total of 45 calories for one serving) so if you are tempted to grab an iced coffee or a latte, this is a much better choice. There is also the added benefit of vitamins (Niacin, Vitamin B6, Folate, Vitamin B12) which you won’t find in coffee, tea or soda.  Each supplement contains 25 mg caffeine.  One cup of coffee is equal to 75 mg caffeine.

For those concerned about sugar, there are only 7g of sugars in one serving (3 pieces) and a total of 8g of carbohydrates. This is far less than most of us consume in our daily coffee or soda pick me up. The box is resealable which means that whether you choose to use one supplement or three for the full effect, you can easily re-close the box to use the rest later. Energems do taste like chocolate candy.  There is a very slight vitamin taste afterward but all in all, it’s a pleasant way to get a boost of energy.

Energems can be purchased at many convenience stores by the box or you can purchase a 3 box variety pack from Amazon. Grab a box next time you need that added boost of energy.



  1. I really need to try eneregems. I could use an energy boost from time to time for sure.

  2. These little gems would be great for me since too much caffeine tends to make me a bit nauseous and shaky. I’ve tried the peanut butter Energems and found them somewhat bitter. I should try the mint or chocolate since I’m not a big PB fan anyway. They really should have send me a mixed box of all flavors to try, right?! On an aside, I sew and this cherry fabric really caught my eye. Must try to find in a fabric store for my next sun dress pattern!

  3. I’ve heard many great things about Energems. Your other tips are great too – especially the exfoliating scrub. Never would have thought of that one!

  4. I’ve used these before and they go very good with tea. I need extra energy to move just about any day of the week – not just when I stay up late

  5. Awesome! I’d never heard of these before. And goodness knows that I need more energy…. I don’t think I’ve slept since 2010…. when I birthed a baby and then a blog 🙂

    I really like the Peanut Butter Energems, I don’t like to drink my energy, that can leave me feeling bloaty or lagging, and these are a great bite sized way to keep that little extra boost on hand.

  7. I can tell you this past year I’ve had many morning afters that have not been too kind! I love all your tips (have sworn by a few of them myself) and am very curious to try these Energems. I especially like the fact that they only have 7 grams of sugar per serving 🙂

    I am not familiar with these but I sure could use them! Love these tips..esp about taking vitamin C and  wearing my favorite outfit. That really does make a lot of sense to boost the ego!
