Natural Bedtime Beauty Tips for Wonderful Winter Skin!
A good bedtime routine helps you to wind down after a long day and prepare your body and mind for a good night’s sleep. At Warren Evans we know that it’s not only our brain that benefits from 7 to 9 hours sleep per night; our skin does too and it’s working hardest to repair itself whilst you sleep.
We've asked creator and founder of clever skincare beauty brand, Novel Beauty, what her favourite natural bedtime beauty tips are... apart from using Novel Skincare of course! Most of these items can be found in your kitchen cupboard.
- Organic Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Olive oil is the most natural, purest moisturiser in the world that can be used anywhere on the body including the face. Just use a small amount and massage in to the skin especially focusing on dry areas to stimulate and help improve cellular renewal. It's even recommended to use as an eye make up remover. It removes make up whilst moisturising the most tender area of the face prone to wrinkles. The aim is to keep the skin supple.
Honey is another product that you can find in the kitchen cupboard that has many benefits for the skin. Honey is great at retaining moisture in the skin, plumps up fine lines and gives your skin a beautiful glow. Apply 1-2 drops to wet fingers and massage in to a damp face and pat dry.
- Egg Whites
Egg whites contain an enzyme that breaks down acne-causing bacteria so they are great for oily skin as it helps to reduce large pores. Egg whites have a tightening and toning effect on the skin so used as a mask can help the skin stay youthful.
You can use avocado on it’s own or add it to the egg whites to create a hydrating mask. This home made product contains many vitamins and healthy fats to rehydrate and leave skin soft and supple and the proteins in the egg whites will nourish and tighten your skin. The perfect combo!
- Coconut Oil
Using coconut oil is the natural way to target anti-ageing. The proteins in coconut oil help keep skin healthy and rejuvenated internally and externally. Proteins also contribute to cellular renewal and repair. It can be used on lips when cracked, as a skin softener and as a massage medium. Massaging your skin before bedtime helps increase blood flow and helps vital nutrients to nourish the skin. A natural skin rejuvenator.
- Good Bed Habits
How you sleep in bed can be a part of your beauty regime. Try to prop your head up by using two pillows or elevate the head of your bed, this can help to prevent puffiness as fluids won’t accumulate under your eyes. Pay close attention to the bed linen you are using, try and use high quality cotton sheets and pillow cases as these will cause less creasing and rubbing on your skin, sleeping on your back can also be beneficial.
