Wake up looking beautiful!
Juggling life can make us fall behind when it comes to keeping up with beauty. But just because we are busy, doesn’t mean that our looks have to suffer. We all need our beauty sleep, so get the most out of your bedtime with these helpful hints that work overnight.
- Lengthen Your Lashes
A lot of women dream about longer eye lashes. One way to get those Kat Graham length ones is to apply a small amount of Vaseline on your eyelashes. Make sure to use a clean eyelash wand when doing this. Leave it on your eyelashes overnight and wash off with warm water in the morning. Results aren’t instant, but keep it up and you definitely will!
“Put Vaseline on your eyes at night – all over. It helps condition your lashes. My mom taught me that. And my girlfriend told me years ago that if you wake up with puffy eyes, you can put Preparation H underneath them. It’s amazing!” – Jennifer Aniston
- Making Waves
This old school trick is easy and efficient: braid damp hair prior to going to sleep and wake up with beautiful waves. You can braid your hair or wrap it around a headband to create waves, or you can simply sleep with it a little damp and let the natural look take its course. Play around with what works for you and what looks best.
- Care For Your Hair
Before you go to bed, apply leave-in conditioner and let it soak all night. It’s the perfect time to add extra moisture that hair needs. Your hair will feel much more hydrated and healthy when you wake and if it looks a little greasy, just wash it out when you take a shower.
- Nights In Satin
This may seem a bit strange, but it’s the ideal beauty product. By sleeping on 100% silk pillowcases, your skin benefits while you sleep and you delay the aging process through a natural and healthy way. It also helps keep hair from getting matted and oily while you sleep.
5. Soften Up
If you don’t have time to get a pedicure, you can sleep easy by softening up feet at home overnight with Foot Rescue. It deodorises, helps soothe skin irritations, moisturises & refreshes.
- Ingredients, Ingredients, Ingredients
Incorporate a few key ingredients into your night time skincare routine. Glycolic acid, retinol, peptides, red marine algae and Dermaxyl encourage collagen activity while snoozing.

- Up And Away
Keep hair out of your face while sleeping to keep its natural oils from wreaking havoc on your complexion. But avoid pulling it into a really tight bun or ponytail, because that can cause hair breakage, especially around the hairline.
TIP: Opt for a loose pony, like Khloe Kardashian and Selena Gomez right before bed.
- Smooth If nails are looking dry, apply cuticle cream or oil and slip on gloves. You’ll wake up to healthy, hydrated nail beds. Now you just have to decide on the perfect colour nail polish.
- Plumper Skin
If you have dry skin, try using a humidifier in your room while you sleep. It increases the moisture in the air, thus moisturising your skin. Be sure to change the water out every day to avoid bacteria growing inside the machine.
- Pearly Whites
Whitening your teeth is the perfect thing do to while sleeping. Usually the whitening product has to stay on for a few hours anyway and you have to wait a while before you eat or drink anything so it would be better to do this before bed. There are even some natural remedies that you can use, like baking soda. Rub a little baking soda onto your teeth and leave it on for five minutes, then rinse thoroughly before climbing in bed.
