Have you ever seen a woman who looks youthful beyond her years and wondered how she managed to keep her skin so flawless over time?

Yes of course there’s the genetic lottery to take into consideration but in all probability, that great skin was at least partly down to good bedtime habits. 

Establishing a healthy bedtime skin routine can bring significant benefits to the texture and tone of your skin. And what’s more, there’s no rocket science involved in taking these little steps.

So here are 5 secrets for simple bedtime skincare habits that anyone can apply easily.

1) Proper Night-time Skincare 

Just as you begin the day with a nice face wash, a moisturizer and a makeup routine, you need to follow a proper night skincare routine as well. Make sure you remove your makeup with a gentle, natural formula like coconut oil. 

Once the makeup is removed, wash your face with a water-based cleanser. Then, take just a dab of soothing night moisturizer appropriate for your skin type and apply while the skin is damp. 

This will not only offer hydration, it will also help replenish while you sleep.

2) Change Your Pillow Covers

If you want to prevent your skin from getting the risk of breakouts, blotchiness or uneven texture, make sure you use the right pillow covers – soft silk and natural cotton fabrics are the best.

You should also make sure to change them regularly ideally after every two to three days. Your skin stays in contact with your pillow cover for 8 hours each night and whatever dirt or oil that accumulates can easily find its way to your skin.

Changing your pillow covers regularly will make a big difference to your skin regime.

3) Use A Night Cream for Puffy Eyes

The skin surrounding your eyes is usually the most sensitive and therefore, it get wrinkled, dull and discolored easily. To treat your under-eye problems and give them a refreshing boost, treat yourself to an intense hydrating eye cream. Apply it before you go to bed and wake up with much smoother and fresher eyes. 

4) Tie Back Your Hair 

Your hair contains natural oils that attract lots of dirt and dust throughout the day. The moment you lie down and your hair touches your cheeks, the dirt can start to make its way to your pores. Therefore, in order to prevent that from happening, tie your hair back before you go to bed and make sure no hair strands stay loose.

5) Use a Humidifier in your Bedroom

When the weather is rough or too dry it affects your complexion  greatly. Keeping a humidifier in the room while you sleep helps the skin to retain its moisture and turn softer each day. Night is the time when your skin cells are in the process of regeneration and having giving yourself a hydration boost with a humidifier can prove to be an amazing long term investment for the healthy and beauty of your skin.
