These Bedtime Beauty Tips Are Totally Worth Doing RN


The day is over and night comes, but before sleeping beauty hits the sheets, there are some beauty tips she needs to remember. We know this sounds cheesy, but as it advises, there are some nighttime skincare routines you need to do for fabulous skin. So far gone are the days when your nighttime routine was a quick shower and off to bed without proper thought to skincare. Now, great skin is a result of good effort, just like anything else in life.

Having a solid beauty routine has a ripple effect as it increases your confidence and makes you walk taller. This is why style girls have an arsenal of bedtime beauty tips that not only translate to glowing skin but also improved self-confidence. The great thing about this is that you don’t need to break the bank to create a personalized routine as some essentials are free while the skincare products needed come in various price points. Therefore, it’s not a question of whether you can afford it but rather a question of whether you’re willing to put in the time your skin deserves.

So, what is so special about creating a nighttime routine for your skin? According to L’Oreal, “when you go to bed at night, your skin finally gets the chance to repair, rejuvenate, and undo all the daytime damage. Your skin actively produces new skin cells and improves your skin’s texture.” Therefore, as your body gets working during sleep, now is the right time to feed your skin with the nutrients it needs to deliver optimal results. Your skin needs to chance to breathe and carry out its overnight repair process.

Check out 7 nighttime skincare/beauty tips the experts agree with…

#1. Drink water

The skincare benefits of water are uncontested. From fighting wrinkles to improving your complexion, drinking water provides you with enough hydration to keep your skin healthy and supple. It is advisable to drink a glass of water about 1 to 2 hours before bedtime to provide your body with the fuel it needs to run. Please note that taking too much water just before you hit the sheets may disturb your sleep cycle as you may need to pee.   

#2. Off with the makeup, shall we?

Jumping into bed without wiping off your layers of makeup is only a recipe for disaster. Let’s not talk about the stains you’ll leave on the poor bed sheets and even the breakouts. Leaving makeup overnight can only lead to clogged pores which can upset your skin. Need I say more?

For maximum results, double cleanse with oil-based and water-based cleansers. This method ensures that you get rid of every trace of makeup and dirt that can cause challenges to your skin over time. 

#3. Don’t forget your toner

A toner is essential to a good nighttime routine as it completes the cleansing process. This product removes any remaining dirt, makeup, or oils left on the skin after cleansing. It can also help normalize the pH levels of your skin by removing excess oil and restoring balance for all skin types.

#4. Moisturizing is essential

After cleansing, toning, and taking a shower, you will also need to moisturize your skin before going right to bed. Moisturizers soothe, hydrate, and replenish your skin’s natural barrier and no skincare routine is ever complete without it. A good moisturizer can help prevent waking up to flaky skin. *cringes*.

#5. Protect your tresses

It’s not like you made a new hairstyle, so why bother? You should. Whether it’s your natural hair in cornrows or that expensive weave, your hair should be seen as a national treasure, protect it. Imagine having to detangle your hair in the morning when you could have worn bonnets or tied it into a bun. Also, your hair naturally absorbs dirt in the environment, and it could easily transfer all that to your face or body, hence, causing unnecessary breakouts. I’ll rest my case right here.

#6. Keep your eyes hydrated

While we sleep at night, the skin tries to repair itself and with this process goes 20 percent of our skin moisture. Simply put, we lose more moisture at night. Therefore, applying eye cream before bedtime is a good idea. You can also put used tea bags on your eyes for about 10 minutes to avoid dark circles. Lastly, sleep with your head elevated to keep puffy eyes away.

#7. Serums are essential

Serums are an essential part of every skincare routine; this is because they address specific skin concerns such as dehydration, acne, textural irregularities, and hyperpigmentation/uneven skin tone. In basic skincare routines, serums are used immediately after cleansing the face and just before moisturizing. Apply at nighttime for a more supple feel in the morning.
