If you want to wake up feel bright and beautiful, then a good night’s sleep is a must do. Even one night of poor sleep is enough to alter our mood as well as how we look. While we are sleeping our skin slips in to repair mode, renewing cells, clearing away toxins and dealing with built up fluids that can leave us with puffy skin and tired looking eyes.
If you believe in the mantra that that ‘when we look our best, we feel our best’ then try these tips to help you max out on your beauty sleep…
Smooth away the day – Gentle exfoliation helps to remove dead skin cells that have accumulated on the surface and allow the new, softer skin to thrive. Have a pot of GLOW After Dark Face Polish on hand to apply once or twice a week to keep your skin glowing through Summer.
Sleep on silk – Supermodels and makeup artists swear by the beauty benefits of silk pillowcases. They help you wake up crease free and sleeping on a silk or satin pillowcase can also help your hair’s overall health, avoiding the fibres in most cotton pillows that are rough against the hair cuticles
Protect by day, nourish by night – Adapt your skincare by time of day. In daylight hours our skin needs protecting from the elements so opt for a hydrating face cream with SPF protection. By night however, skin needs nourishment to help the natural skin-renewal process. That’s where our Night-time Face Oils step in. As well as being in Vitamin A&E the sleep-inducing essential oils means your skin gets a double-whammy in terms of beauty benefits. Choose from LOVE to help rejuvenate mature skin, GLOW to revive dry skin or CALM for stressed out skin
Stay hydrated – Water is vital to good health. It plays a key role in many of our body’s functions, including bringing nutrients to cells, getting rid of wastes, protecting joints and organs, and maintaining body temperature. But it also plays an important role in keeping our skin plump and not ‘crepey’. So make sure you get your recommended 2 litres in in the day.
Beauty on the move – Our skin cells live and die on a cycle of around 28 days so for consistency is key when it comes to skincare. Find a routine that works for you and stick with it. If you’re travelling pack mini versions of your must -have products to make it easier to keep up with good habits. Check out our Skin Revival Set for the Ultimate beauty set on the go
