Skin Hacks That Work While You Sleep, So You Wake Up Glowing
by Andrea Young
Beauty sleep can improve your skins health in more ways than one.
While we’re getting our 8 hours of rest every night, our skin is getting the chance to repair, rest and regenerate. This is why your night routine is KEY to having great skin the next day. It is the perfect opportunity to make the most of essential ingredients to do the work while you catch up on some zzz’s. We’ve got you covered for those overnight beauty hacks.
TIP 1: Silk Pillows
We won’t lie to you, silk feels AMAZING on your skin! In fact, it’s been proven that sleeping on a silk pillow case is great for your skin health, keeping it hydrated and wrinkle free. Did you know that silk is made up of natural proteins and essential amino acids which allows the skin to breathe as well as helping to retain moisture WHILE YOU SLEEP. Unlike cotton pillowcases, silk allows the skin to easily slide with you as you move throughout your sleep. Not to mention, it makes your bedroom totally luxe!
TIP 2: Lavender Essential Oil
Do you ever go to bed at night, and you’re absolutely exhausted, but your brain just won’t shut off and you end up tossing and turning? Well, Lavender Essential Oil is soothing as it can calm anxiety and improve sleep! You can add just a couple of drops to a diffuser in your room, or gently massage some into your temples. (Handy BodyCo Tip – put an extra drop of our Night Repair Face Oil on to your temples as Lavender Pure Essential Oil is one of the key ingredients).
TIP 3: Night Repair Face Oil to give you that GLOW
It never matters on the time of day, water is an absolute essential to having a great glow. Our skin is our biggest organ and it’s always on show for the world to see! A true glow starts from the inside out, if our organs aren’t getting enough water, than the skin will show it. Aim to have a glass or two of water before bed and keep some beside you in case you wake up during the night. This extra hydration will help to naturally promote a youthful looking complexion. Just one glass will start your body flushing out any nasties from your body and restore hydration levels.
