Getting a good night’s sleep is one of the most important parts of our overall health, and it’s easy to notice when we don’t get enough rest. However, did you know that adequate sleep is also a huge part of how healthy your skin is? Without enough rest, your skin will face a multitude of problems.

So let’s take a look at how you can retain healthy skin while you’re sleeping.

Always wash before bed

How often do you forget to wash your face before heading to bed? Chances are this happens frequently. However, many skin experts say that this is one of the worst things you can do for your skin.

Cleaning your face before bed removes dirt, oil, and any pollution that built up during the day.

Use silk pillowcases

Softer, silk pillowcases are great for your skin. Sleeping on them reduces the amount of friction that occurs during the night as you toss and turn during your sleep. Regular cotton pillows accelerate the development of permanent creases.

Apply moisturizer before sleeping

In addition to making sure you wash your face before bed, it’s another great option to add moisturizer to your bed time routine if you want to wake up the following morning with glowing skin. It only takes a few minutes and can do wonders to help improve your skin’s appearance.
