These beauty sleep tips can help to improve your skin and hair and leave you feeling calmer and more relaxed.
Sleep serves as our bodies’ natural way to rest, recover, and restore—and when our sleep quality suffers, so does our skin and overall well-being. So, to maintain a healthy glow and hair, follow these beauty sleep tips, as advised by our experts.
1. Don’t forget to cleanse
To get a good night’s sleep, you want to make sure that you are in a relaxed state of mind. Cleansing your skin and following a skincare routine is one of the easiest ways to get ready for bed and prepare you for a restful sleep.
2. Spend time outside during the day
Spending time outside during the day improves blood circulation and overall health, which, in turn, improves your sleep.
3. Create a relaxing environment
It’s really important to create an environment where you feel comfortable and relaxed. If you like candles, light them half an hour before going to bed, as this will give it enough time to release its essential oils to help you sleep. Or, you can use a room or pillow spray to help calm you down. Be Beautiful recommends scents like sandalwood, lavender, and eucalyptus.
4. Use a silk pillowcase
Silk pillowcases are very gentle on the skin and hair, creating less friction between you and the pillowcase itself. This helps to reduce fine lines, wrinkles, hair breakage, and frizz.
5. Take a warm bath
Put your phone away and take a warm bath an hour before going to bed as it will help to soothe away aches and pains and leave you feeling relaxed. The warm water is also good at reducing stress and tension.
