If you want glowing skin, it is essential to understand that beauty sleep is real. For years, dermatologists have recommended doing some things before bed to wake up looking younger. When you sleep, your skin cells regenerate, making them more receptive to certain products.
Here are nine easy ways you can do before bedtime to look younger.
1. Always Clean
The main reason people have healthy skin is that they always remove makeup, sunscreen, and sebum from their faces before going to bed.
Cleaning your face prevents breakouts and dullness skin. Use a gentle cleanser such as INNISFREE Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam. Jeju Volcanic Pore Cleansing Foam is created from organic ingredients and uses volcanic rock particles to exfoliate your skin. Use it after you remove your makeup for deep cleanse.
Use DHC Deep Cleansing Oil to remove your makeup as it uses a water-soluble formula that efficiently removes makeup from your face.
For those days that you cannot hit the sink before getting to bed, a great option is to leave a pack of cleansing wipes, such as COSRX One Step Original Clear Pad beside your bed, so you can quickly lash out before you go to sleep.
2. Apply Anti-Ageing Cream
Using an anti-ageing cream such as TONYMOLY The Chok Chok Green Tea Watery Cream will effectively clear, brighten, balance, and calm all skin types. This potent formula maintains your natural skin levels of moisture as it contains 100% purity of green tea extract.
3. Use A Mega-Moisturiser Mask
If you want to wake up with a radiant complexion, try using a mega-moisturiser mask before bed. These masks are lighter than night creams, and you can wear them without damaging your hair and pillowcase.
For better results, wear the mask over your anti-ageing cream to help it penetrated deeper.
Our favourite option is TONYMOLY Panda’s Dream White Sleeping Pack. An affordable sleeping pack that you can use every night before you go to bed to wake up with your skin hydrated and moisturised.
4. Change Sleeping Positions
Pay attention to how you sleep. If you sleep on your stomach or the same side, you are pushing your face into your pillow for long periods. After always doing this, it will result in more lines and wrinkles.
Try to sleep on your back whenever possible; if you don’t feel comfortable, try to at least alternate which side of your face you sleep on at night.
5. Drink One Glass of Wine
Avoid drinking too much alcohol as it can lead to dehydration and making your skin look older. Besides, consuming alcohol excessively can cause you to wake up after a few hours preventing you from a good night’s sleep.
6. Avoid Eating Salt
Avoid consuming too much sodium, especially at night, as it is usually one of the reasons why your eyes retain excess water. If you have bags under your eyes, it is a good idea to sleep on an extra pillow to elevate your head and prevent fluid from accumulating in this area.
7. Moisturise Your Hands and Lips
Before bedtime, you need to moisturise your lips and hands. During the day, it is challenging to moisturise these body parts as we are regularly eating, drinking, and washing our hands. Take advantage of these sleep hours to hydrate these trouble areas.
Try KLAVUU Nourishing Care Lip Sleeping Pack the perfect solution for morning chapped lips. This formula is enriched with three types of plant-derived oils, and it is specially formulated to smooth out dead skin cells on your lips.
For your hands, try TONYMOLY Peach Hand Cream, enriched with peach and apricot extracts that promote skin elasticity to provide potent anti-wrinkle effects.
8. Don’t Forget About The Eyes.
Eye cream is a must if you want to wake up looking younger. Eye creams prevent laugh lines and crow’s feet. Dermatologists recommend applying an eye cream that contains peptides and antioxidants before bedtime.
INNISFREE Jeju Orchid Eye Cream moisturises and revitalises your eyes. It is formulated with Precious Orchid Elixir, which contains powerful antioxidants to help with skin-ageing prevention.
9. Do Not Smoke
These days we all know that smoking is bad for your health, teeth, and skin. Make sure to stay away from second-hand smoke as well, especially at night. If, for any reason, you are subjected to smoke during the night, make sure to wash your face thoroughly before going to bed.
