We always look forward to our bedtime even right from the moment we’ve woken up. After a long and tiring day, it is finally that time when you can shut off your mind and allow your body to rejuvenate throughout the course of the night. Also, did you know that your skin’s replenishing process takes place while you sleep? While muscles repair themselves and aches fade away, hundreds of thousands of cells that make up the skin that covers your body also work hard while you are snoozing. If you want to wake up to plump and glowing skin that looks back at you in the mirror in the morning light, then don’t forget how important bedtime is for it. Before you go to bed tonight, try these beauty tips and wait for the magic of glowing skin to appear in the morning.
- Massage Your Worries Away
So you’ve got shelves and shelves of masks and serums but there’s more that you can do for your skin and it doesn’t come in a bottle. Facial rollers and massagers can take your beauty routine to the next level as the motions and pressure it gives the faces improves blood circulation and absorbency of products that are applied. Of course, we cannot ignore how delightfully relaxing a facial massage feels last thing at night.
- Switch Up Your Pillowcase
Did you ever think that your pillowcase could affect the way your skin looks in the morning? Well it can. A silk pillowcase is an advisable choice to sleep on as it prevents marks from setting in throughout the night. Over the course of times, it also reduces the chance of wrinkles setting in. Plus silk pillowcases prevent static and frizz from setting into your hair so your tresses will love it too.
- Never Sleep With Makeup
You’ve heard it time and time again but that’s only because it’s so important. No matter how late your day goes or how tired you are, makeup removal is a step that just shouldn’t be skipped. When particles and residue of products sit on your face through the night, they clog pores and trap bacteria and oils inside. Avoid the risk of sudden pimples cropping up by quickly cleaning with a makeup towel or micellar water.
- Drink Up
Hydration is imperative for healthy and glowing skin and that’s especially true for the night time as well. During the later hours of the evening that is not too close to your bed time, ensure you have gulped enough water to keep you hydrated through the course of your sleep.
- Target Your Issues
Whether you’ve got flaking skin or stubborn pimples, use the hours of the night wisely to treat them. Leave-on masks are lightweight and non-messy as they are made for sleep time. Pimples can be managed with spot treatments and stickers. Pick your cream or serum based on what your skin is facing at the time.
- Mood Is Vital
Focus on sleeping peacefully rather than just sleeping restlessly and groggily. Ensure your night wear is comfortable and breathable before sleeping. Scented candles and essential oils work on the senses of sight and smell to improve relaxation.
- Don’t Forget Your Body
Your face isn’t the only part of your skin that needs care. Remember to moisturise your arms, legs and feet as well with a rich cream or body lotion before night falls.
Follow these tips rigorously and see your skin growing all plump and glowy.
