5 Tips To Maximize Your Beauty Sleep
1) Comforter for smoother, younger skin
London Luxury, just to name a few other bedding companies out there, has come up with new ranges of bedding which helps to smoothen out wrinkles and fine lines as you sleep. And in only 4 weeks, it helps to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines and crow's feet. Sounds too good to be true? Apparently, this beauty benefit is due to the fact that these beddings are infused with Cupron copper technology. Copper ions woven into the fabric are activated by body heat and these ions are then released and are known to be beneficial for our skin. Sounds interesting, doesn't it?
2) Satin pillow-cases for beautiful skin and hair
Kim Kardashian is known to sleep on satin pillow-cases. In fact the whole Kardashian household sleeps with satin. Satin is touted to be the best pillow-cases as it leaves your skin smooth and your hair silky smooth. It doesn't leave a crease on your face when you wake up in the mornings. Over long periods of time, the crease will lead to deeper wrinkles. Something we all do not need. Not only beneficial for skin, it leaves our hair soft and silky smooth. Unlike popular cotton pillow cases, they actually absorb moisture from your hair and skin, making our hair more prone to breakage and dry skin. Uurgh... Seriously, it's time to invest in satin pillow-cases and see the difference for yourself!
3) Sleep away cracked heels and dry hands
Especially during fall and winter time, our heels tend to crack more easily. Do not fret, just massage on your favourite foot treatment cream for dry skin, such as my favourite from The Body Shop's Hemp Foot Protector and wear your socks and sleep. Tomorrow you will have beautiful heels. As for dry hands, slather on your favourite hand lotion such as my favourite from L'occitane's and put on sleeping gloves and sleep like a baby and say hello to well-moisturized hands.
4) Feed your skin well
Your skin is more receptive to active ingredients while you're sleeping. This is because your body is resting and your skin "doesn't have to compete with the sun, pollution, or makeup; the product just gets to do its work," says Cristina Carlino, CEO of Philosophy, the very famous skin care brand. Your skin cells regenerate faster at night time compared to day time. Therefore, invest in a good night serum or night cream to reap its benefits while sleeping. I rely on Estee Lauder's famous brown bottle to keep my skin beautifully regenerated every night. Another good practice is to use topical Vitamin C for your night skincare routine as Vitamin C easily oxidizes when used day time.
5) Beautiful voluminous hair
