Your beauty regimen doesn’t have to stop when you get into bed. While your body is asleep, it is still working hard to repair muscles, flushing out toxins and treating any damage that you might have put it through during the day.

They don’t say, “get your beauty sleep” for no reason. Taking care of your skin can be achieved with very little effort, even as you’re fast asleep.

Overnight Beauty Tips You Want to Try ASAP

Put those eight hours to use with these beauty tips that will leave you feeling refreshed and looking good.

1. Use a Silk Pillowcase

If you’re trying to up your beauty game, this one should be a priority. A silk pillowcase is beneficial to avoid hair breakage and damage and it also claims to reduce wrinkles.

Not only will you wake up with frizz-free hair and reduce split ends, but you will also have fewer lines and creases on your face. Additionally, silk pillowcases absorb less moisture, preventing the onset of breakouts and the formation of pimples.

2. Sleep With Socks On

Use a foot mask or slather on a hydrating and moisturizing foot cream to heal dry and cracked skin on your feet. Put on your most comfortable pair of cotton socks and get into bed.

You will wake up with smooth and soft feet that will make you want to rock sandals all year round.

3. Apply Zit Cream at Night

Since it’s not the best idea to walk around with zit cream during the day, put it on at night before you sleep! Don’t be afraid to switch up your face products to find the one that works on your skin or DIY by applying toothpaste on your pimples.

Other skin-clearing ingredients that can be found in products include tea tree oil or benzoyl peroxide. Find the one that works for you and enjoy zit-free skin.

4. Add Powder to Your Sheets

If you’re tired of waking up feeling sweaty and musky, add some scented baby powder to your sheets to wake up with your skin feeling refreshed and comfortably dry by preventing night sweats.

Don’t worry about the scent, you can even go the unscented route, which works perfectly fine as well.

5. Find a Nighttime Serum

Serums are an essential product to use at night because a lot of these types of products don’t work well when exposed to sunlight. Serums can fight dark circles, puffiness, dark spots and even reduce wrinkles and fine lines.

Overnight serums are great to remove dead skin and will leave you with radiant and glowing skin when you wake up. Choose one for your needs, for example, you can find a serum that is rich in vitamin C for brightening or one with retinol for anti-aging effects.

6. Use overnight Lip Masks

Your lips need some love when you hit the sack and yes there is such a thing as overnight lip masks.

With tons of options available to moisturize and hydrate your skin, find one with shea butter and coconut oil to promote smoother and softer lips as you sleep.

7. Make an Overnight Hair Mask

We’re not going to forget about your locks! Our hair is exposed to many pollutants and the changing climate that can leave us with dry, dull and damaged hair. Therefore, what better way to treat your hair than by taking care of it as you sleep?

Massage your hair with coconut oil to get back your shine and promote a healthy scalp. All you have to do is wash your hair the next day and say hello to beautiful, shiny hair all day long.
