Up Your Glamm Quotient Overnight!
Do you feel beautiful when you wake up in the morning? If the answer is NO, then you need to know about these overnight beauty hacks to keep you going every single day. For a ‘beauty sleep’, you need to follow these overnight beauty tips, that’ll leave you feeling glammorous in the morning:
Moisturize Your Skin Every Night: Use a night moisturizer and make sure you moisturize your skin before going to bed. It not only hydrates your skin, but also, prevents it from looking dull. Remember to always apply moisturizer in upward strokes as this will prevent your skin from sagging and getting wrinkly. A gentle massage every night will help minimize puffiness, will increase circulation and will ensure that your skin absorbs as much moisturizer as it can.
Avoid Sleeping On Cotton Sheets: Choose satin or silk material sheets to sleep on. Your pillowcase too shouldn’t be of cotton material. This is because if you sleep on cotton sheets, it can create wrinkles on your face, creases on your skin and cause hair breakage if you have frizzy hair.
Create Natural Waves Overnight: If you want a wavy look for the next day, then tie your hair in either a braid or a bun, whatever works best for you, and see the magic it does the next morning. You will wake up to a natural wavy look for your locks. Try this technique if you want a refreshing change from your usual look.
Grow Your Lashes: Not everybody is blessed with naturally long eyelashes. But here’s an easy trick to help you grow your lashes overnight. Before going to bed, apply some castor oil or petroleum jelly on your lashes, use a clean spoolie to gently brush the oil or jelly through your lashes and rinse it with warm water the next morning.
Keep Your Lips Smooth And Soft: Do chapped lips make you uncomfortable throughout the day? Apply some lip balm or petroleum jelly on your lips every night for softer lips that’ll stay smooth all day long. Because when you apply a balm on your lips during the day, it doesn’t tend to stay for too long due to eating, drinking or licking, therefore, night is the best time to care for your dry or chapped lips.
Get Soft Feet: Here’s a trick to get soft feet. Because your feet never take a day off, make sure you give them the care they need during the night. Massage some petroleum jelly onto the soles of your feet and then put socks on. The socks help bind the moisture to your feet and will leave you with soft, smooth soles in the morning.
Nourish Your Hair Using Oil: If you want to wake up with smooth and shiny locks, then run some coconut oil into your hair before going to bed because overnight application gives the treatment maximum time to enter your hair cuticles and provide the best moisture.
Hydrate Your Skin With A Humidifier: Sleeping with a humidifier in your room will help increase the moisture in the air and will moisturize your skin. Just ensure you change the water every day before going to bed to prevent bacteria from entering the machine.
