Use a sleep mist.
If you’re one of those people who just finds it extremely difficult to fall asleep when your head hits the pillow, try a sleep mist. Studies have shown that if you get between 7-9 hours of sleep a night, your skin looks dramatically better … so why not help the process along? We love Molton Brown Relaxing Yuan Zhi Mist ($38 at moltonbrown.com), which seriously creates lights out within 15 minutes, tops.
Use a good lip balm.
Prevent chapped, cracked, dry and an otherwise unsightly pout by slicking on a good lip balm before bed. Look for one with Vitamin E, which really works to moisturize the skin, and for one that stays put for over 4 hours. That way, your lips won’t feel too dry when you wake up in the morning.
Drink a glass of water before bed.
The best way to hydrate your skin? Good old-fashioned H20, of course! A glass of water before bed can really start to bring the moisture out from within, giving you a gorgeously glowy appearance.
Wear night cream.
While you should wear moisturizer during the day, too, look for a heavier one to wear while you’re in dreamland. A good night cream erases the damage of the day, making skin firmer and more resilient, and thus easier to face the challenges of daytime hours!
