When you sleep your skin restores and rejuvenates itself so that you wake up to great looking skin each and every morning. Of course, that all depends on what you do to treat it before you hit the sack at night. There are both good and bad things for your skin and making the right choice is vital to ensuring that you have healthy and glowing skin when you get out of bed each day. Here’s what you should be using.

1 Plain Old Water

Again, choose a moisturizer that aligns with your skin type for the best results.

5 You Also Need Eye Cream

eyebrow, face, hair, cheek, nose,Eye cream is a must, especially as you get older. The right one will penetrate into the skin around your eyes and help plump it up.

Look for an eye cream that targets your needs, whether that’s hydration or anti-aging. There are eye creams in all price ranges so you should have no trouble finding one that works for you.

6 Try Some Vaseline

hair, human hair color, face, blond, hairstyle,Using petroleum jelly is something that some dermatologists totally advocate, while others might not. Talk to yours if you’re concerned, but in general, Vaseline can help get rid of dry skin and help create a barrier on your skin to keep moisture in. If you are acne prone, this might clog pores and lead to breakouts so use it with caution.

7 Spot Treatment

hair, black hair, face, person, woman,Putting on a spot treatment before sleeping at night to treat those pesky pimples!! It also does a great job of cleaning your pores. Night time is the best time to do it because it kills bacteria. Also, some spot treatments have a white color which means that you probably don't want to be seen during the day with it on your face. Just make sure the affected area has been cleaned well and apply!

8 Lip Scrub + Balm

9 Castor Oil

eyebrow, face, hair, nose, person,Did you know that oil can actually be good for your eyelashes?? Everyone wants thicker and longer lashes, but putting on fake lashes and excessive mascara day in and out can actually do some harm after a while.

10 Go to Bed Early
