Health and beauty go hand in hand. To get that radiant skin you’ve always desired, you must adhere to a disciplined exercise regime and diet. Moreover, you must adopt the right sleep pattern. But any kind of discipline needs an investment of time and thought. And the crazy pace of the world today doesn’t let us afford such luxuries.
What if we told you that there are simpler and less time-consuming means of achieving similar ends (if not the same)? The following six pre-sleep remedies will have you beaming at the mirror the next morning.
Spotless skin? Voila!
Tired of the splotchy redness of those annoying pimples? Using a cotton swab, lightly dab a few drops of diluted tea tree oil on your pimples. Tea tree oil is known for its powerful antiseptic properties and its ability to treat wounds. It acts as a disinfectant and reduces redness without stripping your skin of its natural oils. You can find it at any Ayurveda store near you. Come morning, and your skin will look clearer.
Good Morning bright eyes
Puffy eyes and dark circles are every woman’s enemy. Especially when you have to face the world with a mug that looks like a ravaged battlefield. But there’s a simple solution for it. Lightly massage the area around your eyes with almond oil before you hit the sack. The Vitamin E in almond oil rejuvenates the skin, and regular use lightens dark circles. So, you wake up feeling and looking fresh.
Want a dewy glow? Whip up this mask by mixing 2 teaspoons milk with 2-3 drops of lavender oil. Dip a cotton ball into solution and gently massage your face with it. Leave it on overnight and wash it off in the morning. From time immemorial, milk has been used as a skin cleanser. It reduces the accumulation of oil and sebum in the skin.
Steam it up
This genius remedy can make you look like you’ve had that facial that you just haven’t found time for. Before bed, step into a hot shower. Instead of wetting your face, expose it to the steam long enough for it to open your pores. Wake up to gunk-free pores and beautiful, polished skin next day.
Lose the carbs
To get those well-defined cheekbones, eat a high-protein, low-sugar dinner. Carbohydrates retain water, which gives your face that soft, puffy look. Replace your rice, pasta and potatoes with high protein foods like quinoa, dal and paneer (cottage cheese). Try grilled paneer tikka or a simple paneer bhurji.
Sleep on the Fusion Mattress
What could be a better way to wake up pretty than sleeping on a mattress that is engineered to deliver reinvigorating sleep? Yes, the Fusion Mattress, India’s best mattress in a box, is the perfect combination of support and comfort. Hence giving you sound sleep. So every time you wake you feel refreshed and rejuvenated. Like A New You.
