Want to wake up looking flawless? Try some of these quick and effective overnight beauty treatments that will have you looking fabulous come sunrise.
If you’re prone to the occasional monthly breakout, then try using a few drops of tea tree oil before bedtime. Its bacteria-fighting abilities are actually comparable to benzoyl peroxide, making it a natural alternative to chemical ingredients.
For a pampering overnight treatment, apply paw paw ointment to the soles of your feet and put on socks before you sleep. The socks help bind the moisture to your feet and you’ll wake up to soft, smooth soles.
Constantly wake up with puffy and swollen eyes? Try this simple tip: about half an hour before going to bed, store your eye cream in the fridge. The cool formula will help to de-puff your under-eye area. Then just let the magic happen while you slumber. If they’re still puffy in the morning try applying old tea bags (plain English breakfast tea is best) and lying down for five minutes.
Give your lashes some loving with a DIY lengthening treatment. The secret ingredient? Castor oil. This natural oil is rich in super-hydrating omega-6 fatty acids, which moisturises your lashes and is said to prevent breakage. Dip a cotton tip (or clean mascara brush) into the oil, and then carefully coat your lashes before hitting the sack. In the morning, just rinse with warm water and wash your face as usual. You should notice healthier lashes in just a few weeks!
Sleeping on a cotton pillowcase can cause creases on your skin and create wrinkles. Instead, pamper yourself by investing in a silk or satin one. It will lessen the pressure on your skin and also help prevent hair breakage.
Want shiny, luscious locks? Smooth a conditioning treatment into your locks before you snooze. Applying it in the evening gives treatment more time to penetrate into your hair cuticles for optimum moisture. For a great natural alternative, try coconut oil.
