Pleased to share with you next 8 secrets how to get perfect skin while sleeping. You may think night is not the time to care about beauty routine, but your sleeping hours have an important role in how you look. If you really want your skin and hair to look healthier and younger during the day, it is time to adopt these sleeping habits. Beauty sleep is necessary for repairing the skin.
1. Sleep on a silk or satin pillowcase.
These fibers can keep you from waking up early on top of your head, and their texture softens wrinkles and fine lines as it causes less friction between your skin and the pillowcase. It is better for the skin because the material glides easily and prevents creasing and wrinkles. Silk is easier on hair — it helps avoid tangles and breakage too.
2. Sleep on your back.
What about wrinkles, sleeping on your back may help nip them in the bud before they even start to form. Repeated pressure on the skin, causing creasing, may eventually lead to set-in lines. A person who sleeps on one side only can even have more set-in wrinkles on that particular side. When you lie flat, fluid can gather around your eyes. If you tend to have puffy eyes in the morning, try to sleep with an extra pillow.
3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize.
To get dewy, fresh look in the morning, you have to use an anti-aging night cream that contains hyaluronic acid. It attracts water into the skin, that helps smooth wrinkles. I recommend always applying lip balm before sleep, moisturizing your eyelashes using lash conditioner, and never skipping your nightly serum or cream. These beauty products work better during the repair cycle of the skin, that is at night.
4. Change your pillowcases often.
Wash your pillowcases frequently, so you are not resting your lovely skin on top of bacteria nests for 8-10 hours a night. You should not only change your pillowcases 2 times per week, but flip your pillows over on days you are not changing them.
5. Sleep with a humidifier on.
Perhaps, you already know that drinking much water is good for your skin — but since you can not do that in while sleeping, try to use a humidifier to keep yourself hydrated at night. This is especially useful in winter, when your skin tends became much drier.
6. Stay away from salty foods and booze around bedtime.
When you drink a lot of alcohol, your body becomes dehydrated. To compensate, it starts to collect natural fluids around the eyes, among other places. If you indulged in some chips and a glass of Chardonnay anyway, try the above extra-pillow trick to help drain fluids. A similar thing happens with salt, leading to that dreaded puffy-eye look.
7. Wear your hair up — but not in a super-tight bun.
It is a good idea to keep your hair out of your face while you are sleeping to keep its natural oils from wreaking havoc on your complexion. But avoid pulling it into a really tight bun or ponytail because that may cause hair breakage, especially around the hairline. Loose ponytail is a great way to keep your most recent blowout intact.
8. Go to bed with a clean face.
So many girls sleep with their makeup on and wonder why they wake up with funky eye gunk in the morning. Aside from funky eye gunk, not taking off your makeup before sleep causes pore-clogging, which can lead to breakouts.
