10 Quick Tips for Better Beauty Sleep

Beauty Sleep. Girls can take it seriously and guys can make a joke of it, but everyone needs it. The problem is, it’s often harder to achieve than you think. Here are 10 quick tips for better beauty sleep: [separator size=”30″]

  1. Use a humidifier, especially during winter nights when skin tends to be much drier.[separator size = “20”]
  2. Avoid salty foods and alcoholic drinks before bed. They dehydrate you, leaving your body to compensate by getting fluids from around the eyes, which can lead to puffy eyes in the morning.[separator size = “20”]
  3. Get a caffeine-free energy boost, munch on nuts like cashews and almonds, or fruits that give you sugar as well as fiber, including apples and strawberries.[separator size = “20”]
  4. Make sure to clear all makeup before going to sleep. Leaving makeup on your face causes clogged pores which can result in breakouts.[separator size = “20”]
  5. If you’re a stomach sleeper, consider a silk or satin pillow case. These materials cause less friction between the pillow and your skin/hair, softening wrinkles and helping to avoid tangling.[separator size = “20”]
  6. If you can help it though, sleep on your back. This way, your face doesn’t touch the pillow which means no creases. A nice, plump pillow also helps because it elevates your head which can reduce morning puffiness.[separator size = “20”]
  7. Get enough hours in bed. Lack of sleep can cause skin to look pale. What’s more, sleep deprivation can trigger stress, which can wreak havoc and cause all types of unwanted skin conditions.[separator size = “20”]
  8. Your skin products may actually work better at nighttime. Creams and lotions can be unstable in sunlight, and because blood flow increases in the evening, they’re better absorbed and in turn more effective.[separator size = “20”]
  9. Take a midday beauty nap. Just make sure to keep it under 30 minutes. That’s enough to energize you; any longer than that and you could experience REM sleep, and wake up feeling more tired than before your nap.[separator size = “20”]
  10. Keep other things out of the bedroom. Too much time watching TV, using your smartphone, or working on your laptop can mess with your sleep habits. Your bed is a place for peace and relaxation, keep it that way.[separator size = “30”]

Now go! Get some beauty rest.
