Bedtime Beauty Tips and Bargain Picks
Maximize your beauty sleep with these quick tips and bargain products
-Paige Herman Axel
Beauty sleep is not a myth. Our skin really does rejuvenate itself overnight, and you can use this downtime to give yourself a nocturnal boost from head to toe. Just take five extra minutes at bedtime to follow these beauty tips, and you just may sleep better and wake up to softer skin, healthier hair, and a renewed spring in your step.
Moisturizing before bed is like giving your skin a big glass of water. I like to focus on my legs and arms (we’ll get to hands and feet later), and a yummy smelling lotion is a must. But you can also reap the benefits of aromatherapy at the same time by choosing a lavender-scented lotion. This particular essential oil has been shown to ease stress, so slathering on a lotion that contains lavender at bedtime can help you fall asleep easier and rest better.
