They work while you sleep and you wake up looking and feeling beautiful. What more could a girl ask for? If you’ve never done overnight beauty treatments, now is definitely the time to give it a try.
These are what you need for your overnight beauty treatments:
1. Petroleum Jelly
Also known as Vaseline, petroleum jelly is a great option for many overnight beauty treatments. Slather it on your dry feet, then wear a pair of socks to bed. While you sleep, the petroleum jelly soaks in, softening your soles and heels. You can also put Vaseline on dry lips, cheeks and eyelids while you sleep. You’ll wake up softer and more hydrated, and there’s nothing better than that!
2. Mineral Powder
According to some beauty experts, dusting on a thin layer of mineral powder before you hit the hay is a good way to control irritation. It helps reduce inflammation and redness and can help soothe your skin. Yes, you should definitely remove your make-up before #bed, but most versions of mineral powder won’t clog your pores so you’re safe if you use it to keep your skin soothed and happy.
3. Vitamin a Creams
Slathering on a cream with vitamin A before you go to bed does wonders for wrinkles on your face. It works for fine lines and new wrinkles and it does its magic while you slumber away. For deeper wrinkles, you might need a stronger product. Try an over the counter vitamin A cream and see what happens.
4. Baking Soda
That simple box of baking soda hanging out in your cabinet are perfect for whitening teeth while you sleep. Simply brush your teeth as usual, then brush again with a paste made of water and baking soda. Go to sleep and wake up to whiter teeth in just a few weeks. You want to do this treatment at night because you won’t be tempted to eat or drink until morning, which ensures that the #baking soda has an optimal chance to do its job.
This beauty treatment won’t even require special products or any work at all. Simply turn a humidifier on while you snooze and it will fill the air with moisture, which fights dryness on your skin and in your hair. Hydrated skin and #hair is beautiful so you definitely want to be sure you keep yours full of moisture.
6. Castor Oil
It only takes a couple seconds to slather some castor oil on your eyelashes. But the payoff is wonderful. That’s because #castor oil can help you grow longer and fuller eyelashes. Don’t put on so much that you get it in your #eyes, but enough to do the job. You should be able to feel it when you touch your eyelashes.
7. Hair Mask
Maybe you tend to shower in the morning. If you consider trying a night shower, you can apply a hair mask that works while you sleep. It will create fuller, shinier strands that are free of damage and dryness. You can pick one up at any drug store and it’s really easy to rub it in while you wash up for the day.
Did you find an overnight beauty treatment you’re dying to try? I hope it works out really well for you. In the meantime, sweet dreams!
