1. Go to bed with a clean face
Create a habit of washing your face before you go to bed. If you go to bed with oil or dirt stuck to your pores, you’re likely to wake with an eruption. Use a good cleanser to get rid of all possible dirt on your skin. If you’re wearing makeup, use a makeup removal lotion to remove the makeup that clings to your pores
Only cleaning is not enough. A moisturizer is a must. Studies say that your skin is more active when you’re asleep at night. As a result, this is the perfect time to apply a good moisturizer and let it work on your skin as you sleep. The beautiful reward is that when you wake up in the morning and look in the mirror, you will have beautiful, soft and supple skin smiling back at you.
3. Apply a lip balm
Simply hydrating your skin is not enough. If you want luscious and soft lips in the morning, it is also important that you moisturize your lips as well. Use a good lip balm before you go to bed. You can also try simple and natural products like oil instead of a lip balm.
4. Brush and floss your teeth
Germs are more active at night; hence it is very important to brush your teeth before you go to bed. Also make sure that you floss sufficiently, so that you find yourself with a nice a confident smile when you wake up in the morning.
5. Brush your hair before you sleep
If you go to sleep with fizzy hair carelessly tied into a messy bun, you will wake up in the morning with still more knots and tangles in your hair. This will lead to breakage when you try to get rid of the knots in the morning. Instead use a large brush to open up all the knots, so that you wake up in the morning with the same beautiful locks.
6. Tie your hair at night
Letting your hair loose will cause them to tangle and form knots in the morning. However tying your hair back can be uncomfortable for some while sleeping. Hence twist your hair and tie it into a ballerina bun using a scrunchies. When you wake up in the morning, you will find your hair with soft waves, more volume and hardly any knots.
7. Avoid sleeping face down
Studies reveal that sleeping face down causes wrinkles with time. The simple logic here is that when you sleep on your stomach, the whole weight of your head tends to fall on your skin, causing fine lines over the skin. Hence make it a practice to sleep on your back.
8. Sleep for at least 8 to 10 hours
Did you know that the whole secret behind Sleeping Beauty’s beauty was the amount she slept? Sleep surely works wonders to the way you look. When you sleep, it relaxes every muscle in your body.
