Six ways to wake up prettier in the A.M


It might seem like there aren’t enough hours in a day to do all of the pampering and prettying you need to do. Luckily, you can get quite a few beauty treatments out of the way while you sleep! Try one or all of these ideas, and wake up prettier in the A.M.

Use a hair mask. No time to deep condition? That’s okay; deep overnight treatments are available from salons and drugstores alike. They work to repair split ends, restore moisture, and soothe over-styled hair while you snooze. Best of all, today’s formulas won’t leave a greasy residue on your pillowcase.

Slather on moisturizer. You might use moisturizer head to toe every day, but during the winter months, it might not be enough. Smooth on a rich body butter from head to toe, then smooth a rich emollient on your feet and slip on socks before climbing into bed. You can also smooth on a rich hand cream and wear cotton gloves, if need be.

Treat your face. Some face creams pack a powerful punch against spots, fine lines, and dryness, but they might not be suitable for daytime use. Some are too thick to layer under makeup, while others don’t contain SPF. The solution: use them at night, when you’re tucked away in bed for eight hours.

Plug in a humidifier. It’s no secret that dry air dries out your skin. A humidifier releases moisture into the air and helps relieve dry, itchy winter skin.

Tweeze and shave before bed. Hair removal can leave your skin red and stinging, not your best look. Do it before bed, so the evidence has a few hours to fade away before morning (and before you add potentially irritating creams and cosmetics to the mix!).

Get a glow. Nighttime is the perfect time to use your self-tanning lotion, since you can slip into old sweats or PJs before hitting the sack, thereby sparing your new clothes from unsightly stains. When you wake up in the morning, you’ll look extra refreshed and glowing!
