Fighting Damage

While you are asleep, your skin heals itself from all the damage it’s suffered during the day. Your body releases melatonin as you get into a deep slumber, and this helps your skin to regenerate and fix any damage. If you aren’t getting enough sleep, this might not be happening, and your skin will really suffer as a result. If you want gorgeous,radiant skintry searching for a face cream containing melatonin! I use Origins Night Health Bedtime Cream, which has worked miracles for my skin!


Ponytail No No

Fancy pulling your hair into a tightpony tailand taking a nap? Don’t do it! As your move in the night, your hair will be tugged at and damaged, and can even get ripped out. Instead, try a loose pony tail. Your hair will thank you for it, and look much healthier!


Take Away

Thinking of ordering a take away an hour before bed? The salt content really isn’t good for eye bags and puffiness, as salt causes your body to retain water. If you can’t resist that food, though, use an eye roller such as Garniers for fixing the damage and making your eyes look great!


Anti Ageing

Recent studies have shown that people who suffer from a lack of sleep age much faster then those who don’t. And they think that for best results, you should be in the ‘deep sleep’ stage by 2.30am, ready to wake up at 8am. Not going to manage it? Instead make sure you use some high qualityanti ageing products!



How many pillows do you sleep with? I have about five, but studies suggest that two flat pillows are perfect. The height is just right tohelp your skin detoxand reduce puffiness during the night.


Rosy Finish

During the night, your body temperature naturally rises, because blood flow to the skin is increased. This gives you a nice rosy glow when you wake up, as the sleeptakes care of your skin when you wake up. If you haven’t quite reached that stage when you have to wake up, try using a radiance peel to make you look divine!

While you can’t entirely replace sleep, with these tips, you can maximize the beauty sleep you do get, and make sure you are looking and feeling your absolute best! After all, who knows whose looking? Have you got a tip for maximizing beauty sleep, or an amazing product to share? Please let me know!

Nice article!!.. I need to sleep so badly i just can't sleep 8 hours... i always wake up around 2am then 4am omg... If you could see my poor face.... My eyes!!! horrible :(

For rosy cheecks I use a hard liquid-like blush that makes your cheeks really healthy. also if you dont have make up on you can lightly pinch your cheeks and it will leave them looking healthy xx


I'd like to add that also because of the "rosy face" when you wake up, many teenagers I know tend to cake on the makeup in the early morning before school because they don't realize it's not acne or inflammation, it will go away within an hour at most of waking up. Your face will not be red all day! So don't put on so much makeup.

I go to sleep at like 11 PM to 12 PM and wake up at 6:30... I have really, really bad, lucklaster skin, and dark circles under my eyes.

Thank youuu soooo much :) Ive had real trouble sleeping lately and its made me look terrible, thanks for these tips xxx <3
