Did you know that you can become prettier overnight? Well, you can, and it is as simple as applying a few beauty products and going to sleep. So, if you want to get that radiant skin, shiny hair, bright eyes, soft hands, etc., here are some overnight beauty tips that will help you achieve just that. The best part is that all of the magic happens while you sleep.

1. Moisturize

Moisturizing is an absolutely essential step in good skin care. It keeps your skin hydrated, hence preventing it from aging as well as keeping acne at bay. There are a variety of department and drugstore moisturizers for dry skin and oily skin in the market today, therefore, choose one that suits your skin type. Beauty experts advise that you read the ingredients label for antioxidants, peptides, and vitamins C and A.

2. Use a facial toner 

Clean your face with a facial toner before you retire to bed every night. A toner removes dust, impurities, and traces of makeup that may still be on your face after washing with a cleanser. It also soothes and repairs the skin’s surface.

There are a variety of high-quality toners in the market that address different skin care concerns. If you have acne-prone skin, you may want to choose a toner that contains exfoliating ingredients like glycolic acid and amino fruit acids. People with sensitive skin can opt for toners that contain soothing thermal spring water.

If you want to use a natural toner ideal for any type of skin, nothing is better than a green-tea toner. Simply make a cup of green tea then add half a teaspoon of honey. Mix thoroughly. Add a few drops of jasmine essential oil to the mixture then transfer it into an airtight bottle. And there is your toner. Just ensure you store it in a cool place.

3. Overnight lip treatment

Dry or chapped lips is a problem that occurs when the lips are unable to produce sufficient natural oils to moisturize themselves. Dry or cold weather, sun exposure, dehydration, vitamin deficiency and usage of chemical based lip products are some of the causes of dry or chapped lips.

Our lips need hydration too, and the most appropriate time to wear a hydrating lip balm is overnight. This way, the lip balm will have sufficient time to absorb without making you feel like you have something heavy on your lips. Use the right lip treatment product just before going to bed to wake up to soft and smooth lips.

4. Apply eye cream 

The eye contour has the thinnest skin on the face and is the first area to show signs of aging. Therefore, it is essential that you take proper care of this skin area. Applying eye cream can help reduce and de-puff dark circles, reduce the appearance of wrinkles and temporarily tighten the area below the eye. Beauty experts recommend that you use your ring finger to gently spread a pea-sized dab of eye cream along the eye socket.

No matter your facial anatomy, it is best to investigate ingredients and know what works for you. When shopping for eye creams, choose those with formulas that contain peptides to restore your skin’s natural protein and hyaluronic acid for hydration.

5. Soften your soles 

The feet should also be part of your beauty regime especially if you exercise or work on your feet. Massage a thick moisturizer such as petroleum jelly or Vicks Vaporub, into the bottom and the top part of your feet. You can also apply the moisturizer on any dry spots on the feet. Ensure you wear a pair of socks to keep the sheets clean. The routine is great for anyone who wants soft and silky feet.
