5 Ways To Improve Your Appearance While You Sleep
Did you know?
The key to a healthy and glowing skin is a good sleep. Your body repairs your skin when you sleep, making new collagen and boosting blood flow for natural glow.
Research also found that people who don’t sleep well appear less attractive to others!
Ready to upgrade your beauty sleep game? Try these easy tips to supercharge your beauty routine.
1. Use a silk pillowcase
Did you know that dermatologists can usually tell which side you sleep on based on your skin? Using a silk pillowcase will help reduce the friction between your face and your pillow, which prevents wrinkles over time.
A bonus point? Say goodbye to bedhead and split ends, since your hair will also benefit from the smooth texture of silk.
2. Stop drinking alcohol at least 2-3 hours before going to sleep
If you tend to wake up with a puffy face, your regular nightcap may be to blame. In addition to seriously affecting sleep quality, drinking alcohol before bed will likely cause your body to retain water, leaving you with a bloated face by morning. Trade the drink for a cup of tea or warm milk instead.
3. Cleanse your face before bedtime
That age-old beauty advice about washing your face before bed is 100% true. Built up dirt and oil from the day can wreak havoc on your skin at night, especially if you’re prone to breakouts.
4. Use a concentrated overnight beauty serum
Since you don’t have to worry about sun sensitivity or makeup interactions at night, bedtime is perfect for breaking out your arsenal of concentrated skin creams.
5. Get the right amount of sleep
It may sound cliche but this tip is also the most important point on this list. Even the best pillowcases and skin creams in the world won’t make up for your bad sleeping habits. So getting 7 to 9 hours of sleep every night is your best bet for clear skin, shiny hair, and healthy aging.
