Beauty Routine Before Bed – 9 Must To Do Habits:

1. No Makeup, Please:

Now, this is serious. I understand that you are a busy lady and have tons of work on your shoulders. But you also got to understand something. Going to bed with makeup on is like sending a cordial invite to skin problems.

Let me explain to you the science behind this.

Your skin starts repairing itself when you are asleep (1). The skin pores open up and a dermatological patching-up happens. But when you have your facial skin shrouded under thick inches of cosmetics, you are only asking for trouble. This will result in spots and acne breakouts.

2. Hand Cream Is A Must:

Beautiful hands can multiply your attractiveness. Hard to believe? Then try this!

Every night before hitting the bed, wash your hands with warm water and a mild soap. Pat dry with a soft towel, and then apply hand cream.

And now comes the most important part. Make sure you use a thick and less greasy hand cream. This will keep your hands moisturized during the night, and when you wake up next morning, you won’t be able to help but fall in love with your hands. Also, hand cream plays a role in reducing skin dryness and roughness (2).

Hence proved, hand cream is a must.

3. Toner Is A Double Must:

Toner is to your face what your face is to you. Why? Because it helps restore the natural pH levels of your skin. This ultimately makes your skin resistant to bacteria and other microorganisms, and also cleanses your skin of dirt and impurities.

Simply apply a little amount of toner on a cotton pad, and gently rub it on your face and neck. Trust me, the next morning you will become even more pretty that you might even feel like kissing yourself.

4. Don’t Forget The Eye Cream:

Let me tell you something.

If there is anything in this world which has a beauty that never wanes, it is a pair of woman’s eyes.

And taking care of such elegance is definitely important, isn’t it? Remove all your eye makeup and apply an eye cream before catching some Zzzzs! An eye cream can do a lot good to your eyes; ingredients like peptides in eye creams can moisturize and hydrate your eyes, and also reduce wrinkles and fine lines (3).

Just ensure you use a lightweight eye cream that contains antioxidants, caffeine, peptides and brighteners.

5. Tie Your Hair:

It’s always best to sleep with your hair tied. No, this is not my personal opinion. When you sleep with your hair tied into a bun, you can spare yourself the annoyance of tangles and knots in the morning.

Also, hair does contain oils and dirt that can get on your face, thereby resulting in acne breakouts and other issues (4). Now, you wouldn’t want that, would you?

6. Petroleum Jelly For Your Feet:

Your feet – something that should be never ignored. They are undeniably a reflection of your personality, and you got to make sure they are immaculate. Always.

Wash your feet with warm water and pat them dry with a soft towel. Apply petroleum jelly on your feet and see them turn soft and beautiful in a matter of days! Petroleum jelly is generally used to prevent skin from drying (5).

7. Brush Your Teeth Every Night:

Here comes one of the most important beauty rituals before bed. Beauty is not just a matter of outside, but of inside as well. If your breath doesn’t smell right, getting fashion advice even from Jennifer Lawrence or Paulina Vega wouldn’t make much of a difference.

So make it a point to brush your teeth every night before going to bed, and ensure you do it after a gap of 30 minutes post dinner. Also floss your teeth and rinse your mouth with warm water. One important point to remember is flossing should be done before brushing (6).

8. Start Using Silk Pillowcases:

Will you believe even the pillowcases you use can determine your beauty? Well, you have to.

And there are two reasons.

One, silk contains a number of natural proteins and 18 essential amino acids that are beneficial to your skin. And two, unlike cotton pillowcases, silk pillowcases don’t give you those annoying silk-lines or silk-creases on your face.

9. Get A Good Night’s Sleep:

My mom says that I used to sleep for over 18 hours a day when I was just born. Given a chance, I would love doing the same even now.

*Just joking*

Anyway, coming to the point, we all know sleep is essential. There is no doubt lack of sleep can cause dark circles and under-eye bags (7), two of the biggest disasters to anyone’s beauty. So ensure you get about 7 – 8 hours of sleep every night.

Also, make sure to shut down all electronics before you sleep. Mobile phones or television are a big no-no inside your bedroom.

    Hi Lakshmi, follow any of these simple tips regularly to reduce black heads and white heads.
    1. Baking soda and Water – you will need 1 part baking soda and some water. Mix these two together to make a paste. Using a gentle circular motion, massage the paste into your skin. Rinse thoroughly with plain water, pat your face dry, and then make sure you moisturize.
    2. Lemon juice – Rinse your face and pat dry. Squeeze the lemon juice into a small bottle and then use just enough to dampen a cotton ball. Apply to affected areas 3-4 times a week, at bedtime. When you wake up, rinse your face with lukewarm water and apply moisturizer as usual. Store the rest of the juice in the refrigerator for up to a week.

  • Hrnakshi Joashi

    Lakshmi – good ol’ Indian ‘uptan’ removes those blackheads and whiteheads. Use it like a face scrub a few times a week and see the difference. Skin may react to baking soda which is alkaline, and lemon juice may dry it but uptan keeps it clean, glowing and surprisingly moisturised.

    • StyleCraze

      Hi Ashima, freckles majorly develop in the areas most exposed to the sun and also because of genes or hormonal imbalances. A variety of solutions like lemon juice, honey, fruit masks, etc. have proven to be effective. Do a patch test to be sure that you aren’t allergic to what you choose.

    I want to get rid of my dark circles. Used many creams, home remedies. Nothing works.
    Plz plz plz suggest something

    • StyleCraze

      Hi Shubh, if you haven’t noticed any difference with the remedies you used, they usually take a few months to show results. Despite your diet and sleep, any prolonged illness and continuous exposure to computers can cause dark circles too. Hereditary, allergy, eczema or oversleeping can cause dark circles. Check with your doctor if the problem persists for a long time.

  • Pari

    Hiii.. Actually i have lots of dark spots and pimples on my face.. How to get ride of it??

    • StyleCraze

      Hi Pari, some of the tips to reduce the dark spots are:
      1. Exfoliate your skin regularly – Find an exfoliating cleanser that contains tiny particles that gently scrub the skin to take off the top layer. You can also make your own by mixing ground raw almonds or ground oatmeal into your regular cleanser. Apply it to the dark spots in a circular motion.
      2. Consider a chemical peel – Light chemical peels usually include alpha-hydroxy acids. Glycolic acid and lactic acid are common ingredients. They’re considered the most effective peels for dark spots.
      3. Aloe Vera – If you have an aloe plant at home, break off a small piece, squeeze the pulp into your hand and apply it directly to your dark spots. You can also find aloe gel in stores.

      Remedy for Pimples:
      1. Lemon Juice and Honey Mix – Squeeze 1 spoonful fresh lemon juice and take the same amount of honey in a clean bowl. Mix them well. You will get a thick liquid paste-like pack now.Apply it all over the face and neck using a cotton ball. Leave the mixture on the face for 15 to 20 minutes. Wash it off with cold water.

      Hope these tips help you and you turn out to be the glowing bride..all the best!!
