Must-do beauty steps before bedtime
Are we doing enough for our skin and treating it well before bedtime so that we can keep the dreaded fine lines away?
We all know that anti-ageing actions should be undertaken starting in our late 20s to keep wrinkles and premature ageing at bay.
What you probably didn’t know is that the best time to pamper and treat your skin is at bedtime because that’s when our body finds time repair and rejuvenate itself. The most important thing is to find a routine and maintaining it religiously. A bedtime beauty care determines whether you’ll get good sleep or not, how you’ll feel the next day, and it also how fresh your overall appearance will be the next day.
Think about it: a lot can happen within a few hours of unconsciousness – breakouts, dryness, and even wrinkles.. However, if you create a steady and intentional beauty care routine before bedtime, you can make sure that the exact opposite takes place.
Do you notice a difference in your skin when you wash your face? There’s a reason for it. Washing your face removes everything sitting on your skin and leaves you looking fresh and clean. Even if you don’t wear makeup, your face will have some oil on it by bedtime. If you don’t wash your face before bedtime, this can clog pores, leaving you vulnerable to breakouts and causing your skin to look dull.
Impurities such as free radicals will damage the skin’s protective layer. This results in dehydration and lost elasticity, which means wrinkles, fine lines, and dark spots can appear over time. Your skin will look smoother as your nightly face wash removes dead skin and leaves you feeling, and thinking, fresher as you head to bed.
Experts affirm that drinking warm water before bedtime will keep you hydrated through the night and may help the body to rid itself of unwanted toxins. Furthermore, warm water may also help to relieve pain or cramping in the stomach, and even aid in digestion and help your blood circulation. If you don’t like plain warm water, tea can be your best solution.
Who likes dry, chapped skin? We all want to wake up with beautiful, soft and supple skin and the key to that is right amount of moisturisation at night. Use a water-based and oil-free moisturizer at night to wake up to plump skin. Also, remember to apply body lotion, hand cream, on your arms and legs before going to bed. Your body will thank you by being hydrated and soft even in the morning.
One of the best ways to ensure that you’ll get a breakout on your face is to sleep in the same sheets and pillowcases for a week straight. Make a habit of changing the bed linen once a week. If this seems like a lot, aim to replace at least your pillowcases once a week.
Facial cleansing brushes provide a great way to smooth skin, clear pores, remove dead skin, and prevent breakouts. Simply apply your favorite facial cleanser to your face and then gently massage it in with your facial cleansing brush, relaxing your skin and your face as you prepare for bedtime.
Exfoliation helps remove dead skin cells, clear pores, prevent breakouts, and smoothes your skin’s texture. The epidermis – the outer layer of skin cells – are replaced about every 28 days. We can help move this process along with the right products. You can use a facial cleanser with acids or small granules, an exfoliating mask, or an exfoliating brush with your cleanser 2-3 times a week.
If you have certain things about your skin that you want to correct, like wrinkles, nighttime is the time to do it. For example, apply your eye cream after your moisturizer, and let it work its magic while you’re asleep. You might even see a noticeable improvement the next day. Many products, like retinoids, increase your sensitivity to sunlight. Apply these before you go to sleep, and you won’t have to worry about hiding from the sun.
The skin around your eyes is very thin and sensitive. It is the first area to show signs of ageing. Incorporating the best vitamin E enriched under eye cream into your before-bed beauty regime is a simple way to maintain a youthful-looking appearance.
the average adult needs 7-9 hours of sleep a night. As you probably know, this is beneficial for physical and mental health in so many ways. While you’re sleeping, your skin repairs the damage it encountered during the day.
