Getting a good night's sleep is essential if you want to look good, but there are many other things you can do to look better when you wake up. Sleep allows the body to regenerate itself, so that you can take advantage of this natural process to rejuvenate skin, hair and more! As if that weren't enough, there are some easy ways to recreate your bedtime hairstyle.
Part 1 of 3: have beautiful hair in the morning
Step 1. Buy a hair mask
If you have dry or damaged hair, you can invigorate it by applying a mask before going to sleep. Usually you have to wash them the next morning. So make sure you have enough time.
- For the treatment to be effective, wrap your hair in a towel, t-shirt or transparent film.
- The mask might stain your pillowcase and if you're worried about ruining your hairstyle, protect it with a towel.
Step 2. Prepare a conditioning treatment
If you don't want to spend a fortune on expensive masks, you can make some yourself at home. Homemade recipes get messy faster than store-bought masks. So wrap your hair well and make sure you have enough time to wash it the next morning. You can find many recipes online. Some of the most widely used moisturizing ingredients are:
- the lawyer;
- the mayonnaise;
- olive oil;
- the raw egg;
- shea butter;
- the aloe vera;
- the banana;
- coconut oil;
Step 3. Wave your hair in waves
To have perfect waves on your hair in the morning, try lifting it up with small updos or braids before going to sleep. You can also try wrapping them with a headband. The next morning, detach them, apply a styling product (if necessary) and you will be perfect.
Depending on your hair type, it may be necessary to use a little hairspray or a hair styler to protect your hairstyle
Step 4. Fight frizz
No matter what type of hair you have, you can make it look great by tying it up with a silk scarf before going to bed.
If you don't want to wear a scarf, you can try sleeping on a silk pillow. This will create much less friction than a cotton pillow and therefore less frizz
Part 2 of 3: Have beautiful skin in the morning
Step 1. Cleanse your face
In the evening, the most important thing you can do for your skin is cleanse it. Removing all dirt and makeup residue allows your skin to regenerate and prevent the onset of acne breakouts.
Before going to sleep, avoid any oily substance on the skin and prevent your hair from touching your face. Wrap them with a silk scarf to protect both your skin and your hair
Step 2. Sleep on your back
Friction between your face and the pillow can cause wrinkles to appear. So, try to sleep in this position.
- If you can't help but sleep on your side, try using a silk or satin pillowcase. These materials produce less friction and thus reduce wrinkles.
- Also, it's important to change the pillowcase every two to three days, as the oil on your face can easily build up on the fabric.
Step 3. Lift your head
Some people tend to wake up with a puffy face, even when they have slept well. This is due to the build-up of fluids and therefore you should prevent this problem by keeping your head slightly raised when you sleep. Two pillows should be enough.
Step 4. Use eye cream
If you are concerned about the appearance of bags and dark circles under your eyes, you can fix this problem by applying a lot of eye cream to the eye area before going to bed.
Step 5. Moisturize your skin
For a healthy, luminous complexion, apply a good dose of moisturizer to the skin before going to bed, especially in winter.
- Moisturize the face with a product that does not clog the pores.
- If you have other skin problems, such as dark spots or wrinkles, you can buy a night cream specially formulated to fight them while nourishing the skin.
- To moisturize your feet, apply a generous amount of lotion or petroleum jelly, then wear a pair of fluffy socks.
Step 6. Hydrate
To supplement your beauty regimen, drink plenty of water and use a humidifier during the dry winter months.
Step 7. Apply a homemade mask
For radiant, well-nourished skin, apply a mask and sleep through the night. It could make your sheets dirty. Then cover your pillow with a towel. You'll find a lot of recipes online, but here are some of the most popular ingredients:
- olive oil;
- lemon juice;
- the lawyer;
- essential oils.
Step 8. Fight acne
If you have acne-prone skin, get rid of the blemish-causing bacteria by applying a cream containing salicylic acid every night.
- For stains that are very stubborn, apply a clay mask before bed.
- If you want to try a natural treatment, apply a mixture of honey and cinnamon to your face before going to sleep.
Part 3 of 3: Take advantage of other beauty tips
Step 1. Apply lip conditioner
To have smooth and sensual lips, you need to take care of them with a conditioning treatment. Various lip products are on sale in beauty shops.
You can also make your own lip balm with olive oil and honey. If you want to exfoliate your lips, add brown sugar to your recipe and apply the mixture to your lips
Step 2. Take care of your cuticles
To have soft hands and reduce the appearance of unsightly and rough cuticles, apply a special oil or balm.
Also, you can simply apply petroleum jelly to the epidermis layer under the nail. For best results, wear a pair of gloves before going to bed
Step 3. Tan your skin
If you want to have beautiful skin when you wake up as if you had spent the evening on a sunny beach, apply a self-tanning night mask. You will have a radiant complexion and hydrated skin and all that, thanks to just one product.
Step 4. Take care of your eyelashes
If you want to have long, shaped eyelashes, apply a drop of castor oil every night before going to bed.
Step 5. Have your teeth whitened
After brushing your teeth as usual, dip your toothbrush in baking soda and brush again. Do not rinse your mouth.
- Do not do this more than once a week, otherwise you may damage your teeth.
- You can do this any time of the day, but do not eat or drink anything for at least an hour after application, which is why it is best to do this before going to bed.
- Never apply purchased products or homemade cosmetic recipes to the eyes.
- Beware of homemade masks! They tend to stain sheets and clothing.
- Baking soda can damage your tooth enamel. Consult your dentist first, stop using this product if you experience pain or increased sensitivity.
