haggard

(adjective) Showing the wearing effects of overwork or care or suffering.

Synonyms: careworn, drawn, raddled, worn

Usage: His face was ghastly pale; his chin had a brown cut on it—a cut half healed; his expression was haggard and drawn, as by intense suffering.

A haggard appearance is usually the result of a long, harrowing ordeal, like getting lost in the woods or being stranded in the woods for days. An emotional ordeal, like losing a loved one, can also give someone a haggard appearance if they forget to eat, sleep, and take care of themselves. Whatever the ordeal, it will make the person look absolutely awful — pale, gaunt, disheveled, exhausted with dark circles under their eyes and wild, unruly hair.



Someone who is haggard looks exhausted and worn out, exactly how you'd expect someone who's been lost at sea for days to look.
