Imagine going to sleep tonight and waking up looking ten years younger.
While that sounds like a fantasy that we all want in on, the truth is, there are some pretty magical things that occur during sleep hours.
In fact, those eight hours that you find such trouble fitting into your busy schedule is exactly what you need to become a timeless beauty.
If you still aren’t convinced of the potential of this divine transformation, give these eight life-changing hacks a try.
You’ll wish you known about them sooner!
1. Seriously, Get To Moisturizing.
It’s not that you don’t moisturize. It’s that you don’t moisturize enough. If you are lathering up on lotion after your skin has already crusted over, you are a bit behind schedule.
Make it a mindless habit to grab your favorite moisturizer each and every time that you jump out of the shower. And if you can’t find a trustworthy brand to smooth things over, you can never go wrong with coconut oil.
2. Level Up With Growth Serums.
So, this one will take a few nights to prove worthy, but if you are determined to compete with the lash goddesses, now is the time to pay your dues.
Treat your brows and lashes with a growth serum before you nod off, and you will never have to go into full-blown panic mode when you manage to misplace your mascara tube again.
But before you bet on a new serum, check to see if it is enriched with peptides, collagen, and biotin, all of which will give you the glamourous look of the century. And for those ungrateful souls that are already blessed in this department, if you want to stay relevant, you might want to gloss up at least a few times a week.
3. Brush Your Worries Away.
If you have gotten used to chronically dry skin and untimely breakouts, here is a gem that will change your life. Not only does dry brushing feel amazing, but it gets rid of all that dead skin that is stealing your skin’s natural luster.
Dry brushing is one of the most effective exfoliation techniques as flaky patches are easier to reckon with when the skin isn’t slippery. And if your skin is textured or acne-prone, you can expect to see impressive results by morning. Just be sure to invest in two brushes: one for your face and the other for your body.
4. Show Your Eyes Some Love.
Puffy, dark, and sagging eyes are a sensitive subject for a lot of women, but it doesn’t have to be. A lot of highly-advertised eye creams are as about as useful as a can of soda.
If you haven’t found a mystical potion that works for you, you can make your own concoction using aloe vera, jojoba oil, honey, shea butter, and a ton of other household ingredients that are sure to keep crow’s feet at bay.
Once you have massaged in your healing product of choice, seal the deal by sleeping with a satin eye cover, like the royalty that you are.
5. Mask Everything.
So we have all heard about masks that swear to be the cure-all for brittle hair, broken skin, rough hands, and cracked feet. You could probably just write them off as another useless beauty ploy, right? Wrong.
Admittedly, the beauty industry is overrun with faulty products, but there are plenty of great ones that will help you restore your youthful essence. Depending on how dry things are on your side of town, you will want to mask up at least one to three times per week.
6. Sip It Up.
We can’t get away from the fact that the inside rules the outside. Sorry ladies. While a glass of wine might take the load off, it won’t really serve you well when working with a parched throat and dehydrated limbs to match. Nothing says anti-aging like a refreshing glass of water or a cup of herbal tea before bedtime.
7. In With the Humidifier.
Don’t complain about fine lines and cracked skin if you are sleeping with your humidifier unplugged. After just a couple of restful, humidified nights, your skin will become miraculously supple and way more moisturized, making you regret those years you spent crusting away during snooze hours. Don’t harp on your past miscalculations. Just move forward in the name of beauty.
8. Snooze On Your Back.
This last hack sounds like a torturous act, but with a world of adjusting and a cup full of vanity, you will catch on just fine. As research proves, the aesthetically beneficial sleeping position is actually on your back with a slight bit of elevation.
So, before you burst out into tears, remember that your pillows will still be there to offer you a little extra emotional support and to prevent fluids from creating pools inside of your face. Also, if you, like the rest of the world, are deathly afraid of being tormented by wrinkles, this one will definitely serve you well.
As it turns out, you, too, have the makings of a Victoria Secret model. All you have ever needed was the perfect nightly routine to bring out your good side.
