We tell you some tried and tested overnight beauty tips so that you can take your beauty sleep to a whole new level.
Did you know our skin repairs itself while regenerating new cells, absorbing oxygen and moisturizing and locking in essential ingredients - all while you snooze? You can make the most of your beauty sleep with our expert beauty tips that will help you wake up looking radiant and refreshed.
Wash, Exfoliate and Slather
Just before you hit the sack, wash your face with a face wash that suits your skin type. Follow this by exfoliating your face with some granules - a gentle scrub or an exfoliator.
We strongly believe that exfoliation is one of the secrets to having younger looking radiant skin. We’re sure you're done with dead skin lurking on your face adding lines of age that make you look older than you are.
Now that your skin is freshly scrubbed, application of your usual night crèmes and serums is crucial, following the regime by applying an overnight sleeping mask. The sleeping mask adds that much-needed boost of hydration that your skin needs to take away that tired look and fine lines. Bet you'll wear a sweet smile after looking at yourself into the mirror next morning.

Use a sheet mask
Lock in the moisture and all the goodness of your sleeping mask with a sheet mask of your choice. The sheet mask creates a barrier and makes sure that all your skin products seep into your skin giving your face that much needed boost.
We recommend using 'Too Cool for School Egg Cream' mask which contains egg protein and collagen.
Keep the sheet mask on for 30 minutes or as long as you desire. The experts usually suggest putting it on while sleeping. It automatically comes off when it dries while we are raking in our beauty sleep.

For Acne Prone Skin
Use a charcoal mask which is great for cleaning out impurities, removing dead skin cells and tightening your pores. Charcoal absorbs environmental toxins, dirt, and debris that can clog pores causing acne. It can also be used as a spot treatment overnight to treat stubborn acne.
The Body Shop's Himalyan Charcoal Purifying Glow Mask is perfect for acne prone skin and also takes care of blackheads and whiteheads.

Use a Silk Pillowcase
A silk pillowcase ensures that your skin doesn’t lose moisture overnight. It keeps allergies and skin irritations at bay while making sure you wake up wrinkle and crease free.
Interestingly, with a silk pillowcase, your split ends and frizzy hair also become a thing of the past as you say hello to gorgeous bouncy hair every morning.
Always check that your pillowcase is made of 100% pure silk and has a charmeuse weave.

Use a Lip Balm
The skin on your lips is sensitive and get worked out the most every day. And, it's extreme when it comes to women like us who love to chit chat. Scrub your lips gently and apply a thick layer of lip balm before you get some serious shut-eye. We love our good old Vaseline Lip Balm, stick to that.

Use a hair mask
If you’re looking to make your strands feel lustrous and bouncy, use a hair mask at night. You could use a mixture of essential oils such as coconut, almond and olive oil. An alternate is that you can slather on an overnight deep conditioning hair mask.
When you wash your hair in the morning, we assure that you’ll have gorgeous locks for days. You'll forget to recall bad hair days.

A good night’s sleep is paramount for you to wake up looking more beautiful the next morning. We suggest you keep away from the buzzing of your mobile phones and laptops half an hour before you hit the bed so that nothing hinders your beauty sleep.
Sleep beautiful, you beautiful!!
Sorry for the late response Anisa and thank you so much for your words of appreciation. Yes, the egg cream mask is really good for combination skin. It basically plumps up your skin and keeps it hydrated without making it oily.
We will also keep your suggestion about the DIY in mind. ?
