Top 5 Beauty Sleep Tips

You might think that looking great requires your foundation, mascara, highlighter, blusher, lipstick…the list is endless. The reality is however, that a great makeup base begins with great skin, and even great hair starts with it being in healthy condition in the first place. The best thing you can do? Take heed of our beauty sleep tips.

As our days are so busy, the best time your body can heal and repair itself is at night when we completely relax and switch off. So have a long bath, get in your pyjamas and let your beauty products do all the work…

    Change Your Pillowcases Twice A Week

    Bacteria can accumulate on your pillowcases, which undo’s all the hard work you have put in actually cleansing your face. Make sure you change them twice a week to avoid dirt building up, and you will find those pesky spots will disappear from your complexion!

    We love: The Iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase helps to reduce fine lines and wrinkles and leave your skin looking rejuvenated come morning.

    Wear A Hair Mask

    Hair Masks are brilliant when left on overnight as they really get to work and make a difference to your locks. It’s also a good idea to put a towel on over the top to prevent the mask from getting onto your pillow and onto your skin where it could cause irritation.

    We love: Philip Kingsley’s Elasticizer is the hair mask of all hair masks. It adds incredible bounce, volume and softness to the hair, without weighing it down at all. For a lighter option, spritz the This Works Sleep Plus Hair Elixir throughout your hair, which has a Lavender scent to send you off to sleep.

  3. Nourish Your Skin

    Nourish Your Skin

    Nighttime is the perfect time to nourish your skin and add in extra serums and moisturisers to work as you sleep. It’s not ideal to wear anything heavy on your skin during the day as when combined with makeup it can clog your pores, but at night, you can use something a little more moisturising.

    We love: A’kin’s Brightening Rosehip Oil with Vitamin C locks hydration into the skin and helps to stimulate collagen production, so you wake up with glowing skin. For something a little richer, try Lancer’s Night Treatment, which adds a shot of moisture into your complexion.

    Keep Your Head Elevated

    When you lie flat on your back, fluid can accumulate under the eyes as you sleep, which can result in puffy eyes come morning time. It’s always best to sleep with 2 pillows to keep your head slightly more elevated than the rest of your body, which helps to reduce swelling.

    We love: To help your eyes stay looking refreshed and sparkling, use Estée Lauder’s Advanced Night Repair Eye Complex, which leaves your eye area looking visibly brighter and more awake.

  5. Sleep With An Eye Mask On

    Sleep With An Eye Mask On

    Eye masks not only help to block out the light and give you a better night’s sleep, they also prevent the pillow from damaging the delicate skin around your eyes. Silk eye masks even help to keep the skin protected and prevent moisture loss.

    We love: The Holistic Silk Lavender Eye Mask not only smells beautiful, but leaves our skin feeling cushioned and ready for a night of beauty sleep.

I am a big believer in the idea that beautiful Make Up begins with a superb skincare regime. I like to enhance my natural beauty rather than cover up and I am always on the lookout for great products which really work. When I am not writing about all things beauty, I like to do Yoga and I make an amazing brownie. It is all about balance!
