Make a peaceful atmosphere
During the day we are under a lot of stress, pressure, and noise. That’s why it’s important to make your bedroom your personal peaceful oasis so you can take the most out of your sleeping time. Using scented candles will soothe your senses and make a cozy feeling. The scent also has a relaxing influence and will help you fall asleep. Some people like to have music playing in the background, so if you are one of them, choose the sounds of nature and calming notes to follow you into the sleep.
Take care of your skin
During the night, the skin cell renewal rate is higher and the skin is more receptive to active ingredients. First of all, make sure to clean your skin from make-up thoroughly. You can use an oil-based cleanser for the make-up removal, and afterward try using mild, water-based cleanser to remove oil excess. After proper cleaning, toning your skin is the next step. Choose your moisturizer depending on your skin type and don’t exaggerate with the amount. A thin layer will be just enough for your skin to absorb, yet light enough to let it breathe. Some natural cosmetic manufacturers even suggest avoiding night cream, in order to let your skin regenerate naturally.
Sometimes, especially if you wash your hair right before bed, you can wake up with something that looks more like a birds nest than hair. You don‘t always have time and energy in the evening for hair blowing and styling. A simple trick can come in a handful. Put some overnight conditioner on your hair and braid it. That way your hair will be soft in the morning, and subtle waves will make you look fresh. Don’t brush it or you will ruin the waves; just add some hairspray and you’re all set!
The best way to relax after a long day, and prepare for the night sleep is a scented bubble bath. It is calming your body and your senses at the same time. Your muscles can get sour from everyday chores, especially if you have some physical activity or exercise going on. Have you ever tried throwing some magnesium in your bath? It can do wonders for your sour muscles! Being the second most abundant element in our body, magnesium is used in regulating over 300 enzymes and reactions. It is easily absorbed through the skin and can help with numerous problems like the rash, dry skin, acne, sour muscles, and cramps. Add some magnesium oil or flake to your bath and feel the difference.
During the day, our teeth suffer a lot. The food, the coffee, chewing gums, and cigarettes are leaving their marks. Introducing a proper routine made of brushing and flossing is essential. Mouthwash is optional but it won’t do you any harm. Don’t be cheap when it comes to oral care products. They are personal and very specific and should be selected carefully. They last for a long time and you can afford to choose quality over price. Products like Caredent personalized floss can really add to your dental care and hygiene. Of course, brushing your teeth before bed is just a half of work. Brushing teeth first thing in the morning is also very important since over the night all the toxins from our blood collect in our mouth.
Introducing some of these steps in your bedtime routine will make a huge difference in the morning and in general. However, don’t try to do them all at the same time. That way you will burden yourself with obligatory beauty steps, and eventually, you will drop them. It’s important to find a balance in your beauty routine so it can last for a long time, without the pressure of doing it.
