Bedtime beauty rituals for glowing skin

·
Wake up to bright eyes, luminous skin and healthy hair

There’s nothing better than waking up feeling refreshed and ready for the day ahead after a great night’s sleep. And, it’s not just your inner health that benefits from a soothing slumber. With a few simple bedtime rituals and beauty products that work hard while you enjoy a restful sleep, you’ll look as refreshed as you feel. Read on for overnight beauty tips to wake up with bright eyes, glowing skin and healthy hair.

Beauty sleep tip 1: Wash your face
Use a gentle yet effective face cleanser to wash away make-up, dirt, pollution and any other pore-clogging aggressor your skin has encountered during the day. This simple step in your beauty routine is a must-do every single night before bed to wash off the day and allow your skin to effectively repair, refresh and rejuvenate.

Try: Peggy Sue Herbal Cleanser

Beauty sleep tip 2: Moisturise your face
Hydrate, soften and revitalise your skin while you sleep with a face cream suited to your skin type and needs. Whether you have a full eight-step evening beauty routine or a simpler regimen, moisturising in the evening is essential. Replenish your skin’s moisture levels with a moisturiser packed with antioxidants, vitamins and other skin-loving ingredients for brighter skin in the a.m.

Try: Grown Alchemist Regenerating Night Face Cream: Neuro-Peptide and Violet Leaf Extract

Beauty sleep tip 3: Sleep mask
Once or twice a week after cleansing and before moisturising, treat your skin to a face mask. It’s like drinking a green juice shot—it gives skin a boost for extra glow in the morning.

Try: Theseeke Rosé Clay Mask

Beauty sleep tip 4: Spot treat
The best time to treat acne or spots is overnight while you’re sleeping. You won’t be tempted (or, well, awake) to touch the affected area and introduce any additional bacteria which may slow the healing process down. Make sure the affected area or spot is thoroughly cleansed before applying your targeted spot treatment, then enjoy a peaceful sleep knowing your spot treatment is working its blemish-clearing magic.

Try: Grown Alchemist Blemish Treatment Gel: Salix-Alba and Boswellia

Beauty sleep tip 5: Lip care
Don’t forget your lips! Waking up with dry chapped lips (especially if you’re a mouth breather) is less than ideal. Give your lips some pre-bedtime TLC by applying a moisturising lip balm prior to lights out and wake up to a smooth, moisturised smile.

Try: Hunter Lab Lip Ammo

Beauty sleep tip 6: Body, hand and feet care
Say good morning to smooth skin, hydrated hands and soft feet by spending a few minutes before bed applying a hydrating hand cream, body lotion or body oil. Not only will your skin repair and renew itself overnight, but the ritual of smoothing a calming, aromatic body oil over your skin or applying a soothing hand balm is a relaxing self-care moment to set you up for a dreamy night’s sleep.

Try: Arithmos De-Stress Sandalwood Superfine Body Oil

Beauty sleep tip 7: Healthy hair
If you love a pre-bedtime shower, add a hair mask in once a week for healthy, strong, shiny locks. Post-mask, towel dry your hair to give it a break from hot tools. For overnight hair care, add a little beauty or hair oil to the ends of your tresses to lock in moisture and repair the hair while you sleep.

Beauty sleep tip 8: Elevated sleep
According to Healthline, elevating your head while you sleep (think: adding an extra pillow under your head) has been shown to not only improve issues like snoring, but may also assist with reducing under-eye bags and puffiness. Per the publication, when you elevate your head during the night, it may improve blood flow and prevent pooling of blood under the eyes.

Beauty sleep tip 9: Pillowcase face
Regularly washing and changing your pillowcase will help ensure no pore-clogging bacteria is deposited on your skin while you sleep.

Beauty sleep tip 10: Create a sleep sanctuary
Elements like the temperature of your room are known to affect how well you sleep. To create a sleep sanctuary, sleep psychologist Dr Michelle Drerup told the Cleveland Clinic that a bedroom should be “… cool, dark and quiet to enhance your sleep.” Her guide to the optimal bedroom temperature? Set your AC to between 15 and 19 degrees Celsius.

Beauty sleep tip 11: Get your 8 hours
The golden rule of beauty sleep? Get your 8 hours every single night if you can.
