How to wake up looking beautiful

Do you ever find yourself loathing those girls who roll out of bed with shiny hair and radiant skin? Well don’t, since looking beautiful in the morning only requires a few extra steps to care for your skin. It’s all about moisture, moisture & more moisture!
  • Always slather on moisturizer before bed. You can splurge on a revitalizing cream like Philosophy When Hope Is Not Enough Replenishing Cream ($48 at Sephora) or use something as simple as Vaseline ($0.50 at
  • If the air in your bedroom is dry, it won’t matter how much moisturizer you wear – you will still wake up with parched skin. Invest in a humidifier, like the Honeywell HCM-630 QuietCare 3-Gallon Humidifier ($49.94 at, and make sure to turn it on every night.
  • Apply moisturizing lip balm, like Lip Clinic Baume de Nuit Night Lip Balm ($2.99 at every night to keep lips from getting chapped and cracked.
  • Apply an acne spot treatment containing benzoyl peroxide to zap zits overnight. Our pick is Neutrogena On-the-Spot Acne Treatment ($9.99 at
  • Sleep on a satin pillowcase to prevent creases from forming on your face and keep your hair smooth and frizz-free.
  • And finally… get eight hours of sleep or more! We know you’ve heard it a million times, but it’s the best thing you can do for your skin and body.
