For most of us, there isn’t much time during the day for doing the beauty rituals that we read on the internet. From cleansing, moisturizing, exfoliating to pampering yourself with luxurious treatments, you can take all the advantage of it during your sleep time. There are some beauty tips that require patience and less moving around so you let them work while you dream away.
Here are the top 7 overnight beauty tricks that will help you wake up beautiful:
Create soft waves:
A heat free way of creating soft wavy hairstyle is to sleep in loose braids. Wash your hair at night and detangle with a wide tooth comb. Next, create multiple braids on your hair, if you like a natural wavy effect in the morning.
Heal your heels:
Dry and cracked heels need some serious moisturizing action. For this, apply a generous amount of Vaseline on your feet and wear cotton socks. In the morning, don’t forget to rinse off with water.
Pump those lashes:
There are many eyelash growth serums available in the market which are pricey. A less expensive and efficient alternative is your good old Castor Oil. Simply dip a Q tip in castor oil and rub it along your lash line. You will notice a good difference in 8-12 weeks.
Sleep on satin:
Many hairstylist suggest that sleeping on a silk/satin pillow will reduce hair breakage and dryness. Cotton pillowcases cause friction with your hair which results in brittle hair. So, replace your cotton pillows for a satin one for a beauty sleep.
Invest in a humidifier:
If you have very itchy dry skin then you need an air humidifier. During the colder months when the air is dry, sleep with a humidifier on in your room. This works in summer months as well when air conditioners can also dehydrate your skin.
Cold eye cream:
Keeping your eye cream in the fridge will help puffy eyes. Also, it will prolong shelf life of your eye cream. Apply your cold eye cream around your eye area every night. A natural alternative for eye cream is to use coconut oil under your eye area.
Leave in hair treatment
Many leave in hair treatments require some time to work. So, its best to apply them before bedtime. A night treatment like the L’Oreal Paris EverStrong Sulfate-Free Fortify System Overnight Hair Repair Treatment
or Pantene Pro-V Overnight Miracle Repair Serum work their wonder while you’re having your beauty sleep.
