This is definitely possible by following a few simple steps and basic techniques while sleeping. Though it’s a whole different ball game when it comes to following a routine for perfectly flawless skin because it needs consistency, patience, and obviously some expensive products, here are some fantastic tricks for you to get a baby-like skin that too while you’re asleep.  Isn’t it amazing?

Argan Oil and Aloe Vera Gel Mush

Aloe Vera Gel Mush

Argan oil is a wonderful trick for soft and shiny skin. It becomes a divine potion when mixed with aloe vera gel. Just take a spoon of aloe vera gel on your palm and add five to seven drops of Argan oil to it. Mix it with your finger until the transparent mixture turns into opaque mint green. Apply on your face in circular motions starting from forehead to around your eyes and cheeks. The method is simple yet super effective for reducing wrinkles and fine lines from your face. You can also use it as an under-eye cream to prevent dark circles. I can spend an entire day talking about the benefits of this method. If you have extremely dry or flaky skin, you can replace Argan oil with Coconut oil. It will help you reduce the inflammation keeping your skin healthy and moisturized. Both Coconut Oil and Argan Oil are anti-allergic and doesn’t react with any skin type. 
  

One spoon of sesame seeds every night

Sesame seeds are high in antioxidants and have exceptional anti-aging properties. They help your skin retain moisture keeping it young and plushy. If you’re in your late twenties, it’s a must-do trick for you. Let me explain what you need to do. Take a spoon of sesame seeds and roast them in a pan for a few minutes. Once they’re roasted, Eat them! It’s literally that easy. Chew them properly until they become like mush. You may want to add a spoon of honey to improve the taste. Do this daily before going to bed and keep your skin forever young. You can roast the sesame seeds for an entire week or even a month altogether to make it easier for everyday use. It will just take you a minute to do every night before bed. Further, it increases serotonin levels in your body, reducing your anxiety and helping you sleep better. What else could be more amazing than a tiny seed treating your skin and parallelly improving your mental health?

No sugars before bed

Well, it’s a widely known fact that sugar increases signs of aging, wrinkles, fine lines, acne, dulls your skin, blah blah... But have you ever noticed when you start consuming more sugar at night, it worsens your skin? Probably not, but let me tell you this, you’re actually killing your beautiful skin each time you eat sugary food before sleeping. This might break your heart, but it is the truth you need to accept. Our bodies are less active at night, making it challenging to balance the sugars in the blood, which ultimately affects your skin. It becomes dull and chappy; dark and baggy. It is something that you will never want, not even in your worst nightmares. So, simply avoid sugars at least two hours before sleeping.

Keep a water bottle handy

Hydrate! Hydrate! Hydrate! Your skin needs hydration at night too. Though it’s a common myth that you should not drink water at night, I would suggest at least have a glass of water before going to bed. Don’t overdo it because it puts extra pressure on your kidneys, but as little as 200 ml doesn’t harm anyone. So, keep a water bottle nearby and take a sip or two whenever you’re slightly up at night. It helps you keep your skin healthy and hydrated even when you’re asleep. Trust me; it works like wonders. You will thank me later.

Sleep on your back with a slightly raised pillow

It’s a good habit, in general, to sleep on your back. It helps you keep away migraines and other back pains, but the most important thing to note is that sleeping on the back keeps your face soft, pimple-free and reduces droopiness near the lips. It removes extra pressure from the blood vessels in your face, especially around your lips and nose. If you have dark spots and visible lines, sleeping on your back will definitely help you. When you use a slightly raised pillow, it keeps the flow of blood and lipids maintained throughout your face and doesn’t allow the eye bags to swell. Who wants swollen eye bags? Do you? If no, sleep on your back with a raised pillow.

So, ladies, the struggle is now over. You don’t need to spend your entire paycheck and hours before bed for soft and beautiful skin. These are super cool and simple tricks to implement in daily life, and the best part is that they don’t take much of your time or even any extra efforts. You can simply incorporate them into your life and improve your skin while sleeping. Enjoy the gorgeous and nourished looking skin for the rest of your life.
