Want to look good? Foundation, mascara, lipstick, blusher…the list runs on and on. But before you burden yourself with all these requirements for looking great why not address the issue right from the source? The base for great makeup and even good hair starts from sleeping well. It is the best time for your body to heal and repair itself. If you are not getting enough sleep, you are not giving your body enough time to get the work done.
Follow these simple tips and we guarantee you more beauty in your sleep.
Change Pillowcases Two Times Every Week
It does not take long for bacteria to find a haven on pillowcases. Even if you cleanse your face every day, bacteria breeding on your pillow would eventually find a way to spoil your facial party. Ensure that you change pillowcases twice every week to thwart a bacteria build-up.
Wear a Mask
Hair masks are hugely effective when they are left on while you sleep. They make a world of difference to your locks. Put a towel over the top to prevent the mask from staining your pillow or causing any irritations. Phillip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is the mask that ends all masks. The sheer volume it can take and the bounciness and softness it leaves in its wake, makes it a must-have.
Keep the Head Elevated
When you lie on your back, fluid has a way of accumulating in your eyes as you sleep. This leaves you with puffy eyes by the time you wake up prematurely. It is always better to sleep with two pillows so that you can tilt your head slightly and leave it elevated when compared to the rest of your body.
Eye Mask On
Eye masks do not only block out rays of light to guarantee you longer sleep. They also stop pillows from roughing up sensitive skin around your eyes. Silk eye masks are the best. Besides protecting the skin, they encourage eye moisture retention. The Holistic Silk Lavender Eye Mask is our pick. It does not only have a wonderful fragrance, it has a cushioned pad that assures you longer hours of sleep.
