How many times have you woken up in the morning with puffy eyes, swollen cheeks, wrinkles, and oily t-zone? If you are reading this article, it would be safe to assume that you are not getting your beauty sleep anymore.
There was a time when sleeping was just a piece of cake. You scrolled through memes and watched movies the whole night and still managed to sleep like a baby. But then adult life happened. With all the stress and life-changing events, sleeping soundly isn’t as easy as it used to be.
And we all are familiar with the fact that having a good night’s sleep plays an essential role in keeping the skin healthy and glowing for longer periods.
No matter how much quality makeup you use to mask your dark circles and wrinkles right after waking up, nothing can surpass the glow of natural skin. That’s why you need to look for a permanent and healthy solution for your skin.
So, if you want your hair and skin to look young and healthy before you get on with your daily routine, start by revitalizing your beauty sleep. And here are some secrets that can help you achieve your beauty sleep and make you look well-rested every morning.
- Hydrate your skin every evening
You should know that your body goes into recovery mode when you snooze, which makes you look energized and ravishing after waking up. As outlined above, you seldom get time to pamper your skin with hectic schedules and weekend night-outs. And that’s not healthy. You need to give your skin proper time to survive the drastic effects of makeup. Not to mention, it’ll make things easier for your body after it goes into recovery mode.
So, you need to make sure that before going to bed, you relax your skin with the help of hydrating face masks. Adding them to your nighttime skincare routine can help in sealing the skin’s natural moisture in the follicles. Also, hydrating your skin before sleeping helps in driving the youth-boosting concentrate present inside your skin.
Thus, using a hydrating face mask every evening will make your skin look healthier and happier right after you wake up.
- DO NOT SLEEP with the makeup on
Yes, it is tempting to come back and hug your bed right after coming back from work or a party. But you should know that sleeping with your makeup on will only make things worse for your skin. Not to mention your skin ceases to breathe and highlights the signs of aging as soon as you get up. And if you are already dealing with acne, sleeping with makeup on is just going to contribute to the breakouts.
According to dermatologists, makeup ends up clogging your pores. It is also one of the major reasons you get up with red or irritated eyes. So make sure you clean your face with good-quality wipes or toners to get rid of possible makeup traits, dust, and pollutants. Also, you need to use under-eye masks to deal with those nasty dark circles and puffiness.
But before you start cleansing your face, there is something you should know. Using chemical-based face washes, cleansers, or toners to clean your skin every night is going to do you no good. Such products are not only harsh for your skin but also might leave you with a bad reaction. So, opting and investing in herbal products will definitely be the best fit for you and your skin. Such products are skin-friendly and work at their best to repair and cleanse your skin in the best way possible.
- Sleep in the right posture
A good night’s sleep helps in making your skin look better, younger, and healthier. But little do you know, sleeping wrongly can boost wrinkles. Yes, that’s right. “Sleep wrinkles” is something that makes you look old and tired every morning.
See, when you push your face against the pillow, it starts damaging the collagen responsible for smooth skin. Not only this, but it also contributes to the wrinkle formation process. So, if you don’t want to look beyond your age, start sleeping on your back or use silk and a soft pillow to avoid those nasty lines on your face.
Also, if you opt for an eye mask to avoid pushing your face against the pillow, you need to pick the silk ones to stay crease-free. Using a silk eye mask will also help in locking the moisture and prevent dehydration making sure that you sleep well every night.
- Do something for puffy eyes and dark circles.
You should know that when you don’t get your beauty sleep, it’s your eyes that have to face the repercussions. You might even have to deal with excessive swelling and discoloration under your eyes. Imagine looking at such things on your face every morning. Got the chills?
According to dermatologists, when you are low on sleep or feel stressed before sleeping, the blood circulation drops. This, in turn, ends up making your face and eyes look tired every morning.
In fact, there’s a good chance that your genes or tanning could be some of the reasons for the visible discoloration under your eyes. But there’s always a way out. That’s why you need to get plenty of rest, stay hydrated and elevate your head while sleeping to minimize the risk of swelling and dark circles. You can also use natural remedies such as applying tea bags or using almond oil before bed to reduce the risk of dark circles.
And if you want better results, you can always use an over-the-counter skin-lightening cream. But make sure you check with your dermatologist before using it.
Beauty sleep is all about looking fresh, energized, and pretty the next day. And it would be a bit tough to achieve that if your skin and eyes look tired and aged.
So, use the beauty-sleep skincare regime mentioned above that makes your skin look well-rested every morning. Not to mention, you can now always go with a no-makeup look because your skin looks healthier and prettier than ever.
