A proper skin care regime followed in the day time all alone won’t help your skin to look awesome and beautiful; it requires care every time even in the night. So, before going to sleep one must have to follow some skin care tips to get the healthy and glowing in the following days.
Un-wear the make-up
After your arrival to home from a late night party or an event you must have to remove your make-up completely though you feel tied and sleepy. Carrying make-up for the whole night leads to build up on the facial skin. Remove the make-up before going to bed with the help of make-up remover. Spread the make-up remover on your face and neck with a cotton swab, and then follow to remove it out. It helps to balance skin pH levels and also to soothe.
Get a good cleansing face wash that suits your skin type and rinse off your face. Before rinsing off with the water gently massage the face wash for few seconds on the facial skin. It is good to wash with lukewarm water. This step cleanses your face and flushes out all the dirt stick on your face.
Exfoliation is an important step every must follow to remove dead skin cells. Buy a gentle exfoliator and use it on your face, don’t be harsh when using it. Try to exfoliate your skin for atleast two times a week. If not the market product use a homemade exfoliator prepared from bran and milk.
Moisturize your skin
Moisturizing your skin before going to bed is a very good habit to follow everyday. Moisturizing helps to remove out the dead skin, along with that it also works great in nourishing and rejuvenating the skin. Buy a good moisturizing cream or lotion that best suits your skin kind.
Special care for under eyes
As our under eyes do not born with any specific oil glands they need some sort of special care inorder to push out the problems like wrinkles, crow’s feet and other skin damages. Choose a good under eye cream and apply it gently around your eyes with the fingertips.
Lip care in the night
The soft and smooth skin area on our face is lip. Proper care must be taken for our lips to avoid the problems like chapped and dull looking features. Apply a good lip balm on your lips daily, exfoliate with oils for once in a week to retain them moisturized and clean.
Special face treatment for once in a week
Give your face a special treatment for once in a week with the simple face pack as follows: Take two tablespoons of gram flour in a bowl and add it half tablespoon of lemon juice, 2-3 tablespoon of rose water and pinch of turmeric powder. Mix all the ingredients well and apply it on your face. Let it sit for 15 minutes and then rinse off with lukewarm water.
Use a toner
There are three most essential things which should be followed everyday to achieve a good skin. These three essentials are cleansing, toning, and moisturizing. Today we are going to focus our attention to the necessities of toning. Our skin goes through a lot of external obstacles on a regular basis in terms of pollution, humidity, weather changes, and so on. So this affects our skin’s natural pH level. In general sense our skin maintains a pH level varying in a range between 5 to 6, which if gets affected, can lead to unwanted skin irritations and discomforts. It is a fact that naturally the orientation of our skin is acidic, so after a gentle wash with soap or a cleanser the pH level gets changed which can be brought back to normal only through the usage of a toner by restoring the natural equilibrium of the skin.
A toner not only helps in restoring the pH balance of the skin but it also acts as a great booster for rejuvenating the dead skin cells by nourishing the skin from deep within and tightens the skin pores too. It is very effective for treating acne problems by reducing the excess oil level of the skin pores and fights against impurities of the skin by making a protective layer over the skin. There are quite a lot of varieties of toner that can be easily found out in the market for every skin type. You can either choose from a variety of options available in the market or go for natural and the most basic form of toner, that is, rose water.
Studies have shown that rose water is very effective for hydrating and making our skin look radiant. All you need to do is after a long hectic day gently dab a cotton ball in rose water and then clean your face with it by gently rubbing the cotton ball on your skin. You will notice that if you follow this regime regularly, then there will be a reduction in the pigmentation and your skin will look glowing! Since this is a natural remedy, this does not have any side-effect.
Apply hand cream
Another very vital way to do before going to bed is, to apply a gentle hand cream on your skin. All through the day, our skin goes through so much! So by the end of the day it is our duty to take care of our skin too by giving a “rest”, and after toning, moisturizing becomes the key notion for us to remember. All you need to do is firstly wash your hand with warm water, then clean it with a soft smooth towel, and apply a generous amount of hand cream. Gently massage the area in circular motions, this will enhance the proper blood circulation of the entire body by enhancing the absorption of the oxygen level through the skin pores. Also this will work as a miracle for fighting against wrinkles, keeping us young and beautiful.
Brush your teeth
Brushing your teeth is another important task which cannot be missed out before you go to sleep! Just as our overall health and hygiene is important, in that same manner we cannot ignore our oral hygiene as well. So every night after you are done with having dinner, it becomes a necessity to brush your teeth and floss your teeth in order to maintain a proper oral hygiene. This will keep your breath clean, your gums healthy, your mouth germ free and plus all these will add in the enhancement of your smile too! Nobody would like to have a mouth full of cavity, germs, and deadly infection; thus brushing and flossing becomes a vital thing.
Plus, always remember to use brushes with soft-bristles and toothpaste filled with fluoride which will ensure a good oral hygiene. Brush your teeth for at least 2 minutes in order to clean the mouth properly and then rinse it off with lukewarm water to ensure the cleanliness by complete eradication of germs and infections. Repeat this everyday before going to bed and you will enjoy a beautiful smile for a lifetime! But it is a fact that brushing should be done only after 30 minutes of the dinner, since otherwise one might feel nausea.
Apply petroleum jelly on your feet
So let’s get honest over here, who doesn’t want to have happy and crack-free feet? The answer is everyone! A beautiful and healthy foot is not only a sign of your through aesthetic aspect but also it reveals and shapes your entire personality. Yes, having good feet is that important!
However due to our busy modern life, chances are that we often forget to take proper care of our feet due to which we end up having cracked heels and rough textured skin. This can be prevented only through a series of time by proper healing. We can cure this problem by the application of beauty regime which is very simple.
Firstly we need to thoroughly clean our feet with warm water and pat the dry skin with a soft towel, then apply a generous amount of petroleum jelly or even a foot cream over the affected area, then cover the feet with a sock and head towards the bed. If we continue to follow this routine daily, in within few weeks we can achieve beautiful and soothing feet! It will also relax the nerves of our body, thus relaxing our muscles to help us sleeping in a better way.
Switch to silk pillowcases
Silk is such a material which does not only sound very royal but it also feels very comfortable rather than cotton. Shown by recent studies, silk material is actually beneficiary in providing a good sleep. So switching to silk pillowcase and even silk bed sheet from the regular cotton ones is a very good option which will also help in improving our skin and hair. Not known by many, but it is a fact that silk contains very good nutrients like natural proteins and about 18 amino acids which acts in boosting up our aesthetic aspects. And it will also prevent the unnecessary creases on our skin which we so often get after a night of sleep on a cotton pillowcase. It must be noted that sleeping on a silk pillowcase will also allow our hair to grow in a better way, allowing the hair to smoothly glide over and improving the oxygen level to the scalp thereby improving the overall keratin quality of the hair cycle. So you should always think about choosing silk over cotton for your bed!
