8 Ways to Become More Beautiful Even While You’re Asleep
The night is the best time for beauty procedures. It’s the time when your whole body recuperates, and your efforts are at the peak of efficacy.
Bright Side gathered several pieces of advice for you to take care of yourself while you’re fast asleep.
Make an aloe vera facial mask
Aloe vera juice helps whiten the skin, get rid of pimples, and prevent wrinkles. It also takes care of any skin type. Just choose the right mask for your skin: oily, dry, or mixed. It’s best to apply it twice a week.
Make a vitamin E mask for under your eyes
The skin under your eyes is dry, thin, and prone to early wrinkling. To prevent aging, apply vitamin E masks before going to bed. It’s sold over the counter at any drugstore in capsules or as a solution. Add fish oil or olive oil for better effect.
However, be very careful with vitamin E, and use just a few drops of it: applied in large amounts, it can cause swelling and irritation. Apply once a week.
Apply castor oil to your eyelashes and brows
Thoroughly wash an old mascara brush, and dip it into castor oil. Apply the oil to your eyelashes and eyebrows (if necessary) for their rapid growth and density.
Repeat every night before bed.
Apply coconut oil to your lips
Coconut oil will be of great help for dry lips. It takes a long time to absorb, so it’s best to apply it before going to bed so that your lipstick is perfect in the morning.
You can use pure oil or choose a mask based on it.
Moisten your hair
Your hair deals with aggressive environments during the day, and it also needs to recover. The main cause of dull and electrified hair is a lack of moisture.
There are numerous sprays and serums for moistening the hair, but you can also use a home recipe: all you need is some apple vinegar, water, and a pulverizer.
Apply vaseline on your hair before sleep
The reason your hair splits and breaks is most likely because it’s too dry. Just like your skin, your hair needs moisture to stay healthy, strong, and shiny. Vaseline is ideal to hydrate and nourish your hair, preventing split ends and enabling stronger hair growth.
Soften your hands
To make your hands soft and tender, use this method before bedtime:
- Wash your hands, and apply some scrub. Then massage them, and wash again.
- Dry your hands, and apply a thick layer of moisturizing cream, twisting each finger. Take care of the areas between the fingers and the wrists.
- Put on gloves, and go to bed. You can also use special spa gloves.
- Take off the gloves in the morning, and apply some cuticle oil on and around the nails.
Get rid of rough skin on your feet
- First thing, scrub your heels and wipe them dry.
- Then carefully rub olive or coconut oil into your soles, put on cotton socks, and go to bed.
