Skincare is a tricky business for most of us. A few of us are gifted with time to do a complete skincare regimen every day and enjoy 8 hours of peaceful sleep. But for most of us even moisturizing and using a serum before bed seems like a huge task after a long day. But this shouldn’t mean you can never flaunt a gorgeous looking skin the next morning.
Here are 8 simple overnight beauty tips that will take very less time but have a wonderful effect on your skin.
1. Don’t throw your green tea bags away
If you couldn’t get the heart to leave the party early and woke up with puffy eyes after barely any sleep then this is your remedy. This can also be very effective for your dark circles. Take a mildly cold green tea bag and place them over your eyes and let it rest for 10 minutes. The tannins in the tea will decrease blood vessel dilation and reduce puffiness and begin eliminating dark circles.
2. Treat your dry lips
Dry and chapped lips are a sore sight. Lipsticks usually add to the sorrow because they seldom moisturize. So, in the night after removing your makeup, mix shea butter and rose essential oil together and apply this to your lips. You can also use fresh rose petals crushed along with milk alternatively and let this rest throughout the night. Your lips will be kiss friendly the next morning.
3. Moisturizing your skin
Normal moisturizing lotion may not do the trick if you have dry skin and have to face the winters. Take coconut oil and apply this on your body and massage it for 5 minutes before going to bed. You will wake up with gorgeously nourished skin.
4. Dramatic long lashes
Lash extensions could be fun. But why go for them when you can get gorgeous, thick lashes and eyebrows with a simple step. Dab some castor oil on your eyelashes and eyebrows before you go to sleep. Within a few days, you will observe thicker lashes and beautiful eyebrows.
5. Say no to old pillowcases
Oil and dirt from your skin and hair often get deposited in your pillowcase. This if encounters your clean face after your night beauty routine will ruin the effects. Try to change your pillow cases as often as twice a week. Choose silk sheets over others to avoid friction.
6. Tie your hair
Well, waking up with beautiful hair strands on your face can only be fun in a movie. In reality, keeping your hair away from your face is important so that the dirt and oil from your hair don’t cause breakouts in your skin. Tie your hair loose and pin them away from your face.
7. Goodbye pimples
If you have an important day waiting ahead but the zit is getting bigger then dab a cotton ball with some diluted tea tree oil and leave it on the zit. This will disinfect the area and remove natural oil from your skin and reduce your zit.
8. Wake up with glowing skin
The best way to achieve glowing skin overnight is to apply vitamin E oil or almond oil in the night. This will nourish and hydrate your face overnight and also help reduce wrinkles and dark spots. Apply a drop of almond oil in your navel to achieve best results.
These tips will help you wake up looking lovely and ready for your day.
