How to Get Gorgeous Overnight!

Looking good, they say, is good business. However, looking good demands both money and time. 

You don’t have to spend huge amounts of money on skincare products to achieve that glowing, spotless, and flawless skin you’ve always wanted.  After spending most of the day outside, running one errand or the other, dashing from desk to desk at work, or taking the pet out for a walk, there’s no saying the amount of dirt that would  accumulate on your skin and especially your face.

Here, we share some fascinating nighttime skin routines and tips that will make your skin supple and soft when you wake up the next day.

Cleanse Nightly

Almost everyone knows how much dirt our faces come in contact with every time we go out, yet few people do anything significant to keep it healthy. Did you know that cleansing your face every night before bedtime helps to remove harmful bacteria that could cause acne breakouts and blemishes?

Also, the skin has a way of repairing itself while you sleep at night. So, cleansing your face helps to remove all the makeup and grime – this way, your face can regenerate and respond to whatever skin products you apply, the next day.

Wash Your Skin Earlier In Evening

Often, you hear people say they are too tired to wash their face at night. However, with a little adjustment and commitment, you can do it. Try washing your face earlier around 7 pm or 8 pm when it’s unlikely for you to skip!

Always Use Moisturizer at Night

Skin is particularly prone to getting dehydrated at night. It’s best to apply a gentle moisturizer before bedtime to increase the chances of the active ingredients penetrating deep into the skin.

Use Products with Performance Ingredients

As you prepare to get started with the day’s activities, it’s advised that you use skin products that offer resistance to environmental elements like sunblock. At night, you should focus on exfoliating and skin-repairing products that offer regenerating and anti-inflammatory benefits.

Change Pillow Cases Frequently

From a hygiene perspective, it’s always recommended to change your pillowcase as often as possible. Using a fresh pillowcase regularly prevents bacteria from getting back into your skin while you sleep.  This is especially beneficial for people with acne-prone skin to prevent breakouts of any sort.

Be Gentle with Your Skin. Use Soft Wash Clothes

Countless people make the mistake of thinking that using hard sponges and scrubbing their skin is most effective in removing dirt. The opposite is the case; hard sponges or washcloths will only irritate the skin and worsen skin conditions.

Applying Eye Cream Too Close to The Eye is Bad

Using eye cream close to the eyes maximize chances of getting that substance into your eyes.  Once the cream comes in contact with your eyelashes, every blink of the eye deposits little amounts of that substance in the eye, and this could result in eye puffiness or an irritated eye. Give your face a light massage regularly to improve circulation and drain fluids from underneath the eyes. 

Lastly, avoid greasy hand creams and treat yourself to a night of beautiful and sound sleep. 

Bad sleeping habits make the skin pale, and sleep deprivation leads to stress and other skin conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, and acne. 

Sticking to this daily skin routine may seem stressful at first, but if you’re consistent about following these tips, you will be glad you didn’t quit!
