6 Ways To Maximize Your Beauty Sleep

by - Tuesday, December 26, 2017

In my last article, we discussed on 6 Benefits on Beauty Sleep. But how do we actually make sure that we get all the benefits that beauty sleep have to offer? Keep on reading to know!

1. Sleep early

You won't get the same benefits of beauty sleep when you sleep from 2am and wakes up at 8am as when you sleep at 10pm and wakes up at 4am even though they both total up to 6 hours of sleeping. Our body has its own time to repair what organ at what time, and not sleeping at the right time will interrupt each process. So sleep early!

2. Sleep In The Dark

You HAVE to sleep in total darkness, I can't emphasize this one enough. Sleeping with lights on, or with fairy lights is actually dangerous for your health and can lead to cancer. Light too, can disturb your biological repairing system. I really hate it if I accidentally fall asleep at night without turning off the light, because I can literally feel my body feel more sluggish and tired when I wake up versus when I sleep in total darkness. If you're afraid of the dark, try setting a timer on your light so that it will be automatically turned off say at 11pm when you're already in deep sleep.

3. Sleeping Mask

Take a full benefit of your sleep by laying on good skincare before you sleep. Try a sleeping mask so that you'll wake up with a plumped and hydrated skin. Take this opportunity to really treat whatever needs to be treated as your skin is repairing itself. Your skincare products are just going to boost up these processes and work so much better.

4. Makeup Remover

NEVER EVER sleep with makeup on. That is the worst thing you could ever do to your skin. Keep a makeup remover towels on your bedside table on days when you're super tired and don't really want to spend time on full skincare routine. At least take the makeup off. Sleeping with your makeup can cause clogged pores and bacteria build up all on your pillow cases. Yikes!

5. Avoid drinking Water

Staying hydrated is number one key to beauty, but it is not necessarily beneficial if you drink 90 minutes before you sleep. You want to avoid drinking because it can cause water retention, hence causing puffiness on your face and eyes. See, plump and puff are definitely different. That is why it is advisable to massage your face upwards when applying moisturizer in the morning to reduce puffiness.

6. Use Silk Pillow Cases

Cotton pillow cases are actually harsh for your hair. They can cause frizziness and more prone to breakage. Silk are so much better to avoid these problems and to maintain overall health of your hair. Of course, it is good for your skin too! Especially if you're a side sleeper like me. Sleeping on silk pillow cases is said to be a good prevention from wrinkles thus preventing signs of aging as it is so much gentle on or skin versus cotton.
