Are you’re actually getting your beauty sleep? Here are some tips to maximize the quantity and quality of your sleep.
Wash your face
Your skin has work to do while you sleep. And it doesn’t need dirt from the day clogging things up. Cleansing your face each night is arguably more important than in the morning — you don’t need to use fancy products or scrub too hard. You can use a gentle cleanser to remove dirt, makeup, and extra oil.
If you don’t cleanse your skin, you will get enlarged pores, dryness, rashes and acne, among other issues that we dont want.
Everyone requires a slightly different skin care routine. But none of your products should cause excessive dryness or irritation ob your skin. Your skin should stay adequately hydrated throughout the night.
Washing your face can dry it out and sleeping can also dehydrate skin, especially if you snooze in a low-humidity environment. While staying hydrated by drinking water can help to some extent, what your skin really needs at night is a good moisturizer.
Sleep on your back
Your sleep position can make a huge difference in warding off prematurely aging skin. When you sleep on your side or stomach, your face is compressed on a pillow for hours — which ultimately will result in wrinkles. And a silk pillowcase can be better option for you face skin.
Prioritize ‘sleep hygiene
Try to keep your sleep schedule consistent, and create a bedtime routine that allows you to wind down. Furthermore, make choices throughout the day that lead to better sleep. Get enough exercise (but not too close to bedtime), limit big meals and stimulants as bedtime draws closer and avoid long naps that can throw off your sleep schedule.
It’s pretty well-established that sleep is important for our health and beauty
