7. Spot Treatments

This is a great way to help stop acne before it starts. Take a purifying mask and, using a cotton swab, apply it directly to any pimples that might be starting or that popped up during the day. Allow it to dry and let it sit overnight. The longer it sits on your skin, the more time the benefits of the mask can help.

 

8. Try an Exfoliator

Your skin is working it’s hardest to repair itself while you sleep. This is a great time to apply a leave-on exfoliator. This will allow the ingredients plenty of time to absorb and repair daily damage.

 

9. Use Eye Cream

Even if you are in your 20’s, eye cream is important. Start using quality moisturizers and eye cream at night so that in the morning, your skin will be well hydrated and plump. Read also about beauty oils you should be aware of.

 

10. Pin Up Your Hair

Unless you wash your hair in the evenings, your hair has oil and dirt that can transfer from your hair to the pillowcase, and then to your face. Either braid your hair or put it up in a bun so it won’t rub on your face or the pillowcase.

 

11. And Speaking of Pillowcases…

Go super deluxe! Using a silk or satin pillowcase will avoid both wrinkles on your face and frizzy hair. Most cotton pillowcases are very rough on your hair cuticles and make little creases and folds that transfer to your face.

 

12. More About Pillows

Think about using two pillows instead of one, or using one of those foam wedges. This will prevent puffiness and dark circles under the eyes. Let gravity work with you for a change!

 

13. Get Your Beauty Rest

Those old adages about getting your beauty sleep or beauty rest? They really knew what they were talking about. A good night’s sleep really does affect the way you look. A good night’s rest will reduce dark circles and puffy eyes. Lack of rest also causes your skin to look pale and dull. Also, most of your skin repair happens while you are sleeping, so be sure you get 7 to 9 hours of beauty rest every single night.
