All of us have heard the term “beauty sleep.” It is true that our bodies need 7-9 hours of solid sleep a night. While we are sleeping, our body naturally repairs and rejuvenates our cells. However, there are some simple tricks we can use to wake up feeling younger, happier and healthier. This article contains some simple and cost-effective beauty tricks and healthy skin tips to help you wake up feeling happier and healthier!
Some tips for healthy skin are so easy, like eat the best foods for skin and drink much water. For example, drink a glass of water before going to bed. This will hydrate our skin as well as our internal organs. Also avoid straining your eyes by using your electronic devices such as your cellphone, tablet or laptop before going to bed. Give your eyes a chance to rest.
Our skin care tips are not costly. Instead of spending a ton of money on expensive salon or health and beauty products, you can use products you probably already have in your kitchen or medicine cabinet such as coconut oil or aloe vera gel. Beauty doesn’t have to come with a price! Read further our beauty and healthy skin tips so that you could wake up looking like the diva!
1. Wash Your Face
All beauty secrets in the world won’t make an ounce of difference unless you wash your face before going to bed. Makeup will clog your pores and cause breakouts, dry skin, or wrinkles depending on your skin type. Wash your face with the cleanser that is the best for your skin type or keep a supply of makeup removing cloths handy.
Always moisturize to wake up with soft, glowing skin. You can use a store-bought product of your choice, or you can apply coconut oil, vitamin-E oil or olive oil. Gently massage it into your skin before going to sleep.
3. Fight Acne
Pimples always show up at the worst times, but have no fear; you can fight them while you are asleep. Apply a small dab of toothpaste and leave it on your face overnight. Or, dab on a small amount of apple cider vinegar. Both of these remedies are proven to help reduce pimples radically.
4. Hydrate Your Skin
If you live in an area where the climate is dry, you should sleep with a humidifier in your room. This will help hydrate your skin while you are sleeping. Keeping your skin properly hydrated is one of the best healthy skin tips you will ever need.
5. Prevent Wrinkles
You probably already use a face mask, night cream or anti-wrinkle serum, but studies show that “sleep masks” are more effective for preventing wrinkles. The most recommended sleep mask contains cranberry extract and skin plumping hyaluronic acid which can both hydrate your skin and fight wrinkles while you are asleep.
1. Prevent bags & circles
Massage a small amount of almond oil around your eyes to help prevent fine lines and dark circles before you go to bed. Coconut Oil works, as well. Coconut Oil is a also a great means to help your tired eyes in the morning. Apply a small amount around your eyes as soon as you wake up to get rid of those tired eyes.
2. Lengthen Your Lashes
Simply applying a small amount of castor oil along your lash line before you go to bed can help give you longer, fuller lashes.
Moisturize! We all want soft, kissable lips, but they always seem to be dry and chapped, disregarding the season. A simple way to moisturize your lips is to apply a thin layer of almond oil before going to bed.
Whiten Your Teeth! A surefire way to get whiter teeth is to dip your toothbrush in baking soda after you brush your teeth before going to bed. You can also use this treatment during the day, but you have to wait an hour before drinking or eating. Thus, it’s much easier to do this at bedtime so that your teeth could whiten while you are sleeping. But this is not something you should do every night, just one or two times a week. Otherwise, it can damage your teeth permanently.
Healthy Hands & Feet
1. Soften Your Cuticles
Manicures can make your nails look great, but your cuticles can get cracked and damaged. Simply massage a little coconut oil into your cuticles before going to sleep. It will help repair your cuticles and strengthen your nails, as well.
2. Prevent Cracked, Dry Feet
We tend to ignore our feet until it’s time to don those flip flops or sandals. We need to take care of our feet year-round. An easy way to heal cracked, dry feet is to apply some Vaseline or some other thick moisturizing cream on your feet and put on cotton socks to ensure the moisturizer adheres to your skin. Your feet will thank you for this simple healthy skin tip.
3. Moisturize Your Hands
We put our hands through a lot during the day, so they can easily feel dry. Here is a simple trick to soften your hands at night for you to awake with softer, healthier hands. Exfoliate your hands with a simple homemade scrub of olive oil and brown sugar. Then use Vitamin E oil to massage your hands and put on a pair of gloves while you are asleep.
Silky, Shiny Hair
1. Prevent Breakage
Sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase will help prevent both breakage and frizzy hair. As a bonus, silk or satin pillowcases are also better for your skin. Besides, they don’t cause friction and can help prevent wrinkles.
2. Treat Split Ends
Simply apply some Aloe Vera gel to your split ends before going to sleep, and your hair will feel soft and manageable when you awake the next morning.
