We all love the idea of waking up flawless and finding a quick solution to beauty related issues. Your body generally repairs itself while you sleep so the good news is that there are a few tips and tricks that you can try out that will help you look great in the morning; you can basically kill two birds with one stone by getting your eight hours of beauty sleep while sneaking in some beauty treatments at the same time. Here are top five beauty treatments that are guaranteed to work overnight.
- Soften dry rough feet
If you have dry, cracked or callused feet put on a heavy foot cream or Vaseline and then wear cotton socks to bed. The socks hold in the moisture against your skin. Simple essential natural oils such as coconut or olive oil will also work to soften the skin on your feet.
- Eyelash Growth
Want longer looking lashes? You can moisturize them by using castor oil to make them grow longer. Apply castor oil with a cotton bud and dab the oil along your top lash line. Do this every night and you will see a significant growth in your lashes. You can also use castor oil to grow your eyebrows. Castor oil contains natural compounds that promote hair growth; it contains a large percentage of Ricinoleic acid that is especially potent in stimulating hair growth.
- Whiten your teeth
Teeth whitening is more often than not an expensive affair, there are a couple of beauty hacks for whitening your teeth at home but baking soda seems to be the most efficient one. After brushing, dip your toothbrush in a small amount of baking soda and brush again. The particles will polish the surface of your teeth and when you mix baking soda with water, it will help remove stains. Do this process once a week to avoid damaging your teeth.
- Minimize hair breakage
To minimize hair breakage, switch your pillow cases to satin. Turning over during the night while you sleep causes friction which leads to frizzy, dry hair that can easily break. When you switch to satin pillow cases, the slippery surface minimizes hair damage. Another reason why satin pillow cases are good at keeping your hair healthy is because they don’t suck out all the natural moisture from your hair. Cotton absorbed moisture while satin retains it.
- Pimple remedy
Got a big event coming up but you just don’t know how to get rid of that stubborn pimple? Fear not, you can make spots disappear overnight by applying some tea tree oil directly on to the pimple provided you catch it on its early stage. The natural disinfecting properties of tea tree will help reduce redness and dry out the pimple without stripping your skin of its natural oils.
