Wake up Gorgeous: Nighttime Habits Everyone Should Follow


Some days we look better than others, but during those times when don’t look and feel our best, it’s often due to lack of sleep, stress, poor skin care, and other factors.

However, if we follow certain nighttime practices, we can be confident that our skin will look glowing and healthy the next day:

Avoid Salty Foods and Booze in the Late P.M.
Don’t get me wrong; enjoy your slice of pizza for dinner and a glass of wine after a long day at work, but aim to eat and drink no later than 6 or 7 p.m. or at least three hours before you hit the sack. Sodium and alcohol will contribute to water retention and lead to puffy eyes and face the following day.

Sleep On a Clean Pillowcase
Prevent acne breakouts by sleeping on a clean pillowcase every night. Not washing your pillowcase for more than a week is pushing it…

Practice a Proper Nighttime Skin Regimen
Taking care of your skin is a crucial step in achieving and maintaining beautiful skin. A proper regimen for night includes:

• Cleansing
• Toning
• Treatment (with a serum such as Vitamin C Serum or Cellufirm Drops)
• Moisturizing (with a night cream formulated with nourishing ingredients such as Seaweed Night Cream, which helps the skin repair itself while you sleep).
• Applying Eye Cream 

Get Your Zzzs
The term ‘beauty sleep’ is true in every sense. A good night’s sleep is conducive to waking up looking your best. Aim to get at least seven to eight hours of sleep each night to feel refreshed and to look rested.

If you put these habits into practice religiously, you’re bound to wake up gorgeous!
