How Can Healthy Bedtime Routine and Good Night’s Sleep Benefit Your Skin || Collaboration with highstylife

This post is a guest post, written by Zara Lewis, a contributor, from "highstylife". Although we have previously written all content ourselves, upon contacting us Zara was passionate about several topics, this being one that us also are interested in, yet are pretty clueless about. (This situation is one like where teachers play youtube clips as they are not by any means knowledgeable themselves; a healthy sleep routine is so important, and something we want you to know about, yet cannot actually discuss due to such unawareness from us! We are certainly no Caroline Hirons.) We sincerely hope you enjoy, and get in touch with Zara if you like her style of writing. We certainly do! Farewell. 

How Can Healthy Bedtime Routine and Good Night’s Sleep Benefit Your Skin

Even though everyone knows that removing makeup and washing one’s face is an absolute must before bedtime, the truth is that many women skip these steps. They may be exhausted after a hard day at work, or maybe just too lazy to do it, but none of those reasons are good enough to justify that. A healthy bedtime routine and a good night’s sleep can truly benefit your skin, and if you want to know how, stay with us. Here are five useful tips on how to accomplish that.

Facial steam to the rescue
Since you probably don’t have the time to get a regular facial once a month, there’s a great option that will also do wonders for your skin. A simple facial steam at your home can be as efficient as the one done at a beauty salon – plus the fact you’ll save some precious dollars, too! It will open up your pores and help you get rid of excess oil, which is one of the best ways to prevent some serious breakouts. A hot shower before sleep can be a true life-saver for your face – just make sure not to put your skin directly in contact with the water, since it can scald it very badly.

Cleanse your way to luminous skin
We know that sometimes, it may get very hard for you to remove makeup and clean away all the dirt from your face, but this simply needs to be done before bedtime. Make sure that you’re using alcohol-free product, such as Neutrogena Fresh Foaming Cleanser, since it won’t change the pH of your skin. Gently massage it into your skin and wash your face and neck thoroughly with lukewarm water. Just don’t forget to rinse the entire residue thoroughly away!
Slough away dead skin
Getting rid of those dead skin cells that have been piling up for weeks (or even months, who knows?) is an absolute must, since these make your skin look lifeless and flaky. This step is essential since a gentle product such as Acure Brightening Facial Scrub, will slough away that dry upper layer of your skin and uncover the rejuvenated one below. This product includes French green clay that will pull out impurities, which makes it even more efficient. 

Don’t forget to moisturize
Once your skin is smooth and refreshed again, it’s about time you applied your moisturizer! Make sure that you have picked the one that’s appropriate for your skin type, since the wrong one can do more harm than good. You can always kill two birds with one stone and get a moisturizer with anti-ageing properties – Thalgo collagen cream may be just the perfect thing for you. It will nourish your skin to the max while fighting against the first signs of aging – fine lines and wrinkles. You won’t make a mistake with this one!

Sleep like a baby
A good night’s sleep benefits your skin in more ways you can possibly imagine – it boosts your blood flow to the skin, which makes it look much healthier. We all know that sleep deprivation results in puffiness and those dreadful dark circles under the eyes, which is exactly why getting enough sleep should be your top priority. Apart from that, a good night’s sleep may improve your existing skin condition, such as psoriasis or eczema. So, sleep like a baby and stay healthy!

Taking care of your skin before bedtime is essential for your overall well-being, especially in the long-run. A combination of products that are appropriate for your skin type is crucial, as well as good night’s sleep which makes everything better. Make sure that you’re following all the aforementioned tips and you’ll see an immediate improvement!

  3. I wish I can sleep easily but I'm a chronic insomniac and have suffered for more than 10 years. I guess it's another reason why I stepped up my skincare routine too or my skin would look horrible.
