BEAUTIFUL BEFORE SLEEPING: HOW TO CARE FOR SKIN BEFORE SLEEPING
Taking care of beauty before bed is important not only to keep your skin amazing, but to keep up with your self-esteem. During the night, the metabolism of the skin cells increases and, therefore, it absorbs more and better nutrients than at any other time of the day. If you don’t have a ritual yet, learn with some tips that will make you wake up more beautiful and happy with yourself.
WASHING THE FACE AND CLEANING THE SKIN ARE AVAILABLE
Removing the makeup before bedtime is a rule of general knowledge, but it is not enough if the goal is to have an impeccable complexion. Some residues remain on the skin even after washing your face with a suitable soap, so it is always recommended after washing to use a good makeup remover to remove the deepest impurities.
SKIN AND LIPS SKIN
Exfoliation removes dead cells from the surface layer of the skin and results in cell renewal. After the process, the skin becomes more silky, smooth and ready to receive hydration, either on the body or on the lips.
To remove the accumulation of skin from the lips, a mixture of honey and sugar can be effective. Rich in vitamin C, honey moisturizes and reduces the spots caused by sun exposure, while refined sugar will help remove skin residues and should be applied in light circular movements so as not to scratch the lips.
On a daily basis, the use of lip sunscreen is essential to avoid burns caused by ultraviolet rays.
HYDRATED SKIN TO SLEEP
On colder days it is natural for the skin to be less hydrated and lose even more softness due to the hot baths, so one must count on the efficiency of the different types of moisturizing creams that collaborate with the skin’s soft texture from the use of moisturizing substances or emollients that restore the skin’s natural moisture whenever it is dry.
Women who are afraid of getting oily skin because of moisturizers, can rest easy. Hydration is concentrated in the so-called T zone, which includes the forehead, nose and chin and does not extend beyond the superficial layer of the skin. The ideal is to invest in “oil free” products, which absorb the excess shine and keep the skin looking more dry.
Dry skin, on the other hand, needs more concentrated creams with more hydration components, such as antioxidant vitamins E, A and C.
NIGHT BEAUTY TREATMENTS: 8 THINGS YOU CAN DO FOR YOUR BEAUTY WHILE YOU SLEEP:
Moisturize the skin , remove blemishes, dry pimples and treat hair at the same time and without any effort? It may seem impossible, but it is not: did you know that you can use your sleep hours to take care of beauty? Taking a few minutes before bed to apply the right products is key to making the most of your night’s rest.
- Make a face mask
How about taking care of the skin on your face while you sleep? A good idea is to apply a facial mask (whether moisturizing, dry or anti-aging) before bed, so that the formula works during your hours of sleep. To avoid staining your pillow or sheets, use old pillowcases or cover the bed with a dark towel.
- Moisturize your lips
During the night, you can also moisturize your lips. Before bedtime, apply a nourishing cream or lip balm to the area to prevent dryness that can happen with air conditioning or just to make your lips smoother.
- Treat stains
If you have spots on your skin, whether they are melasma or not, it is worth taking advantage of your hours of sleep to try to lighten these dark marks. Bet on a specific treatment, such as formulas enriched with tranexamic acid , for example, and apply to the face (or affected region) before sleeping.
- Moisturize your hands and cuticles
Another thing you can do for your beauty at night is to moisturize your hands and soften your cuticles! A good moisturizer, enriched with panthenol, is the key to waking up with the smooth and skin-free region.
- Apply a treatment for pimples
Your night’s sleep can also be used to dry pimples! After cleaning your face with a specific soap for your skin type, it is worth applying a drying cream, such as those enriched with salicylic acid, for example, in each acne lesion.
- Moisturize the skin on your feet
Do your feet usually get dry or calluses? Sleep time is perfect for softening this region. The tip is to apply a dense ointment or cream generously throughout the area before bed. Wearing socks helps the area to soften more easily.
- Treat wrinkles, bags and dark circles around the eyes
The eye area can also be beautified at night! Apply your eye cream before bed to treat wrinkles such as crow’s feet, dark circles and even bags while taking your beauty sleep.
- Apply your anti-aging cream
This is not new: you can apply your serum or anti-aging cream before bed. Consult your dermatologist to find out the best formula for your type of wrinkles or sagging.
