Wish your snooze time brought you flawless-looking skin? Find out how you can wake up like sleeping beauty herself!
They say sleep helps achieve a younger-looking complexion, but let’s be real for a sec here; how many of us actually get eight hours of uninterrupted sleep? The harsh truth is not many have that luxury, but follow these few simple steps and you’ll experience the best slumber and wake up with a refreshed ad radiant complexion the next morning.
Step 1: Scented Goodness
After a long day at work, you feel deflated from staring at the computer screen for eight hours and having been stuck in rush hour traffic. Nothing feels more relaxing than being welcomed by a home smelling like fresh flowers. Light a candle to set a calming mood to prep you for an uninterrupted night in.
Step 2: Wash It Off
Naturally, a hot shower should be next on the list, so why not add a scented shower gel that’s enriched with soothing verbena extract? Not only does it cleanse away dirt, it’ll also leave a delicate scent of spring behind.
Step 3: Oil Up
If you’re struggling with sensitive skin or constantly in a highly-stressful environment, then make oils your BFF’s stat! Oils act as a barrier on the skin, protecting it from harmful environmental aggressors while encapsulating moisture. Try this face and body oil that is loaded with Delicalma Complex and oils such as argan, sunflower, and plum, which hydrate and nourish while providing comfort to sensitive or hyper-reactive skin. The best part? It isn’t just for your face but also for your body. Just soak a cotton pad and dab onto areas prone to redness.
Step 4: Youthful Boost
Is your skin looking a little dull lately with pimples making their debut? perhaps you had one too many late-night drinking sessions? With oils as its main ingredients, this night balm uses hazelnut, macadamia oil and cocoa and shea butter to offer skin nourishment and comfort throughout the night. It refreshes your complexion while you dream about ‘pink fluffy unicorns dancing on rainbows’ (cue the Andrew Huang song).
Step 5: Well-Rested Skin
It’s frustrating when skin becomes rough and dull from exposure to harmful elements. The right skincare can recover and recharge your skin, and a sleeping mask like this will take care of your worries. Rich in plant stem cells, like edelweiss, sea holly and criste marine, which is known to protect, firm and help your skin renewal, slathering this on your skin will help you wake up fresh-faced and fabulous!
