Want skin that glows, brightens and doesn’t cause you too much trouble? You might be hoping for a miracle, but these tips from Instyle might just help!
- GET AN EARLY START
Make a habit of washing your face a few hours before bed. If you wait until you’re tired, you’re more likely to blow it off—allowing toxins and dirt to stay on there all night. Another consequence? You miss the best time to treat your skin. At night there’s more blood flow to the skin’s surface, and there’s nothing else on your face to interfere with absorption.
- SLEEP ON YOUR BACK
Note to Audrey Hepburn fans: Lying on your stomach is bad for « beauty sleep. » The average head weighs 7 to 8 pounds-a lot of pressure to be putting on your face every night. In fact, many dermatologists say they can tell what side of the face people sleep on by the number of wrinkles there.
- GET A LIFT
Sleep with your head elevated on two pillows, or put the headrest area of your bed on 2- to 4-inch pieces of wood. Gravity helps lymph and blood flow so fluid won’t accumulate, Polis says.
- SAVE MONEY, NOT WRINKLES
At night you don’t need to worry about eye treatments smearing your makeup, so slather on the richest formula you can. It conditions lashes and hydrates the delicate eye skin really well.
- SNEAK A GLOW
Mix a drop of self-tanner into your night cream or use a cream that contains a bit of tan-producing DHA.
- AVOID CARB FACE
To wake with defined cheekbones, eat a high-protein, low-sugar dinner (try salmon and asparagus, a natural diuretic). Skip the rice, pasta and potatoes. When our diet’s high in glycemic carbohydrates, our features take on a soft, doughy appearance.
- WRAP IT UP
To minimise A.M. frizz, sleep on a satin pillowcase or put your hair in a silk scarf. Those fabrics are much softer than cotton, so there’s less friction.
- FIND YOUR INNER BALLERINA
Pile hair into a twist on the top of your head (use a scrunchie to avoid crimping). In the morning you’ll have major volume and beautiful waves.
- GET YOUR HANDS ON A GOOD MOISTURISER
