How To Prep Your Skin For Sleep

Between your career and social life, you probably don’t have time for a nap. But sleep isn’t negotiable – especially when it comes to your skin. As you sleep, your body repairs and replenishes itself. But there’s more to an effective beauty sleep than simply laying down on your bed. Here’s how to prep your skin for the best night’s rest:

Get Rid of All of Your Makeup

Before you go to bed, it’s essential to rid your skin of makeup, dirt, oil, and other gunk that has accumulated in your pores throughout the day. No matter how tired you might be, it’s critical to give your face a thorough cleansing. Be sure to clean your skin for at least 30 to 45 seconds before rinsing with warm water.

The Right Products

Help your skin repair and replenish itself by applying the right serums and moisturizers before bed, including the best hyaluronic acid serum and coenzyme Q10 serum. These two products will deeply penetrate your skin, providing it with essential nutrients to help you look gorgeous and youthful in the morning.

Moisturize

It’s important to moisturize right before you go to bed so that your skin stays properly hydrated during the night.

Satin Sheets

Use satin sheets to avoid wrinkles and skin indentations in the morning. As you move during sleep, your pillows can cause friction, which results in fine lines and wrinkles over time. Satin sheets prevent friction, and are also luxurious to sleep on. It’s a win-win.

Drink Lemon Water

A glass of lemon water right before bed helps to keep your body, and your skin, properly hydrated. Also, when you awaken, drink a glass of refreshing lemon water to get your metabolism going.

Use these tips and tricks and always wake up with fresh, beautiful, and clear skin in the morning!
