Your body does its best work when you are asleep. You feel relaxed, refreshed and rejuvenated after a good night’s sleep. This is why you need to give your body a little help along the way. The following are some nightly rituals practices by women with amazing skin:
Always remove your make up
Sleeping with makeup is bad for your skin. It clogs up your pores and prevents the body from doing its magic while you are asleep. You need to remove all your make up, from eyeliners, mascara and lipstick to foundation; everything has to go before you sleep to free your face of all the gunk. Clean your face thoroughly before bed.
If you have acne or rosacea pimples, using purifying masks is a great way to get rid of them. Extending the skin contact time by leaving the purifying mask on overnight can have amazing results.
An Ayurvedic massage can do wonders for your skin, your mood and your general well-being. You can massage organic oils into your skin, aching joints and feet to balance your hormones, bring relief from cramping and even provide relief from fluid retention. The herbal oils are vibrant with nutrients and infused with hormone balancing herbs that are great for your health.
Apply a hand cream
Your hands get dry during the day from all the washing and exposure to dry air. We rarely remember to apply hand cream after every hand washing session. Applying hand cream at night is the best way to moisturize your hands and keep your fingernails looking their best. The best time to undo most of the damage on your hands is during the night. Hand creams also keep your fingernails and cuticles moisturized making it easier to grow strong and longer nails.
Pin up your hair when sleeping
You probably do not wash your hair every day. There is often a pile up of products, oils and dirt that can get on your face and your pillowcase. These can cause breakouts on your skin, which are quite annoying. You should always pin up and wrap up your hair when sleeping. Wrapping up your hair also protects it from breakage while sleeping.
Get enough sleep
The amount of sleep you get at night affects the way you look in the morning. Not getting enough sleeping leaves you looking puffy and tired. This is because the lack of sleep prevents your body’s circulatory system from working efficiently ending up with stagnant blood in the vessels around your eyes. This results in dark circles around the eyes.
Use an anti-age serum
Your skin is always working hard to repair itself while you are sleeping. The best time to apply anti-age products is at night as it gives the ingredients time to be absorbed and to correct the damage to the skin from the environment during the day. It can help reduced the wrinkles and creases that form around the face. In the morning, your skin will be well hydrated and plump.
