Want to wake up to flawless skin? You’re probably thinking that it sounds way too good to be true. We wouldn’t steer you wrong though—you know that! It’s definitely possible for anyone to wake up to flawless skin. It’s all about making the most of your skin care habits so you’re able to wake up feeling great in your skin. Curious about the tips we have for you? Check them out below.
Always Remove Your Makeup
Leaving your makeup on at night when you go to bed is just asking for clogged pores and irritated skin. Even when you use makeup that’s non-pore clogging, it’s just not good for your skin at night. Our skin needs a break from makeup and a chance to breathe after wearing makeup and being exposed to environmental factors all day. Removing your makeup at night allows your skin to have that chance to breathe. Plus, many experts are finding that removing your makeup can help remove environmental factors, like free radicals that we’re exposed to throughout the day, and keep them from doing more damage to our skin through the night.
Cleanse Your Skin Thoroughly
In addition to removing your makeup at night, your skin needs a nice cleansing before you get tucked in. While using makeup removers is essential to getting all the makeup and other ‘stuff’ off of your skin’s surface, cleansing helps to get rid of any leftover residue that may have been left behind. Plus, using a gentle cleanser on your skin is a great way to give your skin a little bit of a reset after wearing makeup and being out and about all day. Going to bed with freshly cleansed skin gives your skin a chance to heal from the skin stressors of the day.
Change Your Pillowcase
We know you may be thinking, “what does a pillowcase have to do with my skin?” Well, it turns out that it has a lot to do with your skin. Experts suggest that a silk pillowcase can do wonders for your skin throughout the night. Hair stylists have been stressing the importance of using silk pillowcases to keep your hair from becoming dry and brittle, and skin care experts have found that they have the same effect on our skin. Yes, your pillowcase can actually help your skin retain more moisture and prevent it from becoming overly dry.
In addition to everything mentioned above, make sure that you’re getting enough sleep at night! It may sound obvious but sleep has a massive impact on our skin’s appearance. Since our bodies are designed to really heal themselves while we sleep, getting enough sleep is essential to waking up with flawless skin.
