Do you wish that your schedule or budget allowed for facials and spa treatments? Well, we have good news, beauty sleep does work! During sleep, your skin has the opportunity to repair itself. Apply these nighttime habits to your routine to become even more beautiful:
Opt for a satin or silk pillowcase: Not only is silk easier on your hair, helping to avoid breakage and tangles, it works magic on your skin. The reduced friction between your face and pillowcase will prevent and soften wrinkles and creases.
Sleep on your back: It is truly one of the best ways to stay wrinkle–free. Repeated pressure on your face can cause wrinkles in that area. Plus, if you often wake up with puffy eyes, sleeping on your back with an extra pillow will reduce the fluid buildup.
Moisturize, then moisturize again: To keep a fresh face, invest in an anti-aging night cream that contains hyaluronic acid to smooth wrinkles. Also, apply lip balm and don’t forget to moisturize your eyelashes with a lash conditioner. Your skin repairs at night, so take advantage!
Keep changing your pillowcase: You can’t maintain healthy skin while sleeping on top of bacteria every night. Change your pillowcases twice a week and flip your pillows over on the days you aren’t making the change.
Turn your humidifier on: Drinking lots of water is good for your skin but you can’t do it at night so sleep with a humidifier on to keep your skin hydrated.
Say no to salty foods and alcohol close to bedtime: You don’t want to dehydrate your body before bed, natural fluids will collect around your eyes. Let’s avoid the dreaded puffy eye problem by just staying away.
Wear a causal up-do as you sleep: Wearing your hair up in a loose style will keep the oils from your hair from causing blemishes on your face. Don’t make it too tight though, you don’t want hair breakage. Even wrapping your hair in scarf will do the trick.
Do not go to bed with make up on: Besides the annoying eye buildup you’ll see in the morning, sleeping in your make up leads to pore-clogging, welcoming breakouts.
Remember that your body needs 7-9 hours of sleep every night to keep you looking and feeling your best. Do you have habits you do before bed to stay healthy and gorgeous? We’d love to hear about them in our comments below!
