For most, bedtime is something they look forward to all day; sometimes right from the moment they’ve woken up. After a long and tiring day of chores, work and everything in between, it is finally that time when you can shut off your mind and allow your body to recuperate throughout the course of the night. As part of your body, did you know that your skin is privy to the replenishing process that 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. However simply falling asleep in your pillow won’t drastically improve the state of your skin. It is what you do for your skin before and during your night’s rest that makes all the difference.
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 makeup towel or micellar water.
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 guzzled enough water to keep you hydrated through the course of your sleep. As this period of time could be from 6 to even 10 hours during which you won’t be drinking water, keeping yourself hydrated before that is a smart move to follow.
Target Your Issues
Whether you’ve got flaking skin or stubborn pimples cropping up, 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. A humidifier can help if the air is very dry in your bedroom. 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 moisturize your arms, legs and feet as well with a rich cream or body lotion before night falls.
