Your sleep time, apart from improving your general health, is also the best time for a proper skin care. This is because, during your sleep, your body is mostly still and your face relaxed, so any beauty treatment works properly on that skin.
Also, some treatments achieve full effect when they remain on your skin for a longer period of time. During the night your skin is most active with cell renewal, so it’s the fitting time to help optimize that process.
3 Beauty Treatments to Apply At Night
Here are three overnight facial treatments that will truly give you that beauty sleep.
Nourish Your Skin with Coconut Oil
This is perhaps one of the simplest night beauty treatment to give your face. It’s even been taught in many esthetician schools.
Once or twice a week, you can use a small amount of coconut oil and massage it gently on my face and neck. Then leave it overnight. It will be completely soaked up in the morning, leaving your skin very soft.

Always choose extra virgin, organic coconut oil. If you don’t like the smell of coconut, you can add a little bit of essential lavender oil.
A Satin (or Silk) Pillow Cover
This is not precisely a facial treatment, but if you improve the quality of the things that your skin comes in contact with, it will help in greatly improving the quality of your skin, and your hair too. And the fabric of your pillow cover is something that touches your skin more than any other fabric.
Go for an organic 100% pure satin or silk cover without chemicals or harmful dyes, and clean it with an organic and hypoallergenic fabric wash.
