If you are a night owl, you will relate to this rant! Oh what we’d give to sleep on time and wake up early. But nope. It’s just not in our system. Not everyone is a morning person. Staying up late is sometimes out of compulsion and for some it’s just a way of life! But burning the midnight oil can mess up you skin’s health big time. It causes skin aging, eye bags, dark circles, wrinkles and more.
So ladies, instead of letting your skin pay the price of your late night shenanigans, why not use that time to pamper your skin? Take a look at these beauty hacks you can pull of at night and make the most of your night.
Face masks are fun, great for skin and so relaxing. If you got no time in the day, put on a face mask while you Netflix and chill late into the night. Apply and leave on the Lakmé Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask for a relaxed binge session and wake up to glowing skin next day. Win-win!
As you stay up late you might munch on midnight snacks. While that’s okay, switch from the junk and fatty snacks to walnuts and peanuts for midnight munchies as they are rich in vitamin E and thus great for skin. Also, if you crave something hot, better have green tea than caffeine.
Night time routine
You have plenty time to deep cleanse and remove every ounce of makeup from face as you’re not rushing to go to bed. Use Simple Kind To Skin Cleansing Facial Wipes that removes even waterproof mascara. Cleanse your face with a foam cleanser and nourish your skin with the Lakmé Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum.
Under eye cream before screen time
You wouldn’t have to complain about dark circles and eye bags if you take proper care of your eyes. The under eye area is very sensitive and if you’re up late, and not a bookworm, chances are you are on the screen all the time, either binge watching or working. Use the Dermalogica Skin Hydrating Masque which provides in-depth moisturization and increases hydration.
Do the nails
We’re always on the go and a pretty nail art becomes a dream. As it needs time and patience and you literally can’t do anything with your hands, use the night time to do your nails with peace. Pull out your manicure kit and nail the nail art. Just be careful you don’t spill it on your blankies.
