Bedtime Skincare (Care for skin while sleeping)
Hello Sleeping Beauties! Did you know that bedtime is the ideal time for us to spoil our skin ? Many biological processes take place during sleep. Our cells rest, repairs itself, restore energy, and turnover. Adequate good quality sleep is very important for our skin health and for our overall physical and mental health. These are some things you can do to help your skin get the most out of these golden night hours!
CLEAN YOUR FACE
One of the worse things you can do is to go to bed with a dirty face. Night is the time when your skin should be healing, recovering and repairing. If your skin is soaked with dirt, pollutants and old makeup while you sleep, you will ruin your complexion little by little.
APPLY TOP QUALITY PRODUCTS (BEDTIME SKIN TIPS)
Use bedtime as the opportunity to soak your skin in all sorts of skin goodies and treatments. So make sure to treat your face and overall body to some serums, retinoids, cleansers, moisturizers and whatever else your skin needs while you enjoy some sleeping beauty moments.
PAY ATTENTION TO YOUR PILLOW COVER
Just like it’s not advisable to sleep with unclean face, it’s also not advisable to sleep on dirty pillow. Make it a habit to change your pillowcase once a week. Sleeping on a silky surface pillow is known to reduce friction between your skin and hair against the pillow which may result in less hair breakage and less opportunity to cause skin irritation while sleeping. Make research on quality silky surface pillowcase that will not absorb all the great skincare products you use on your skin.

SLEEP ON YOUR BACK (BEDTIME SKIN TIPS)
I’m the type who usually like sleeping on my sideways but training myself to sleep on my back was probably the best thing I ever did to my skin, and you know what? It’s free! Sleeping on your face is bad for some reasons. A lot of great products you apply at night will end up absorbing into your pillowcase instead of your skin.
LASTLY, PROMOTE GOOD QUALITY SLEEP
A comfortable bed and serene atmosphere, blackout curtains and minimizing electronics can all help.
