How much time do you spend every morning trying to make yourself presentable? It can be incredibly frustrating when you wake up late in a mad rush to get ready when you can’t find anything to wear, are having a bad skin day, and can’t get your hair into any sort of style. The secret to looking good, however, is not perfecting a rushed ten-minute routine but preparing the night before.
Wash Your Face
The skin on your face is much more delicate and sensitive than the skin on the rest of your body, so it is imperative to wash it with appropriate soap and skincare products each day before bed. Lots of bacteria and oils can form on your face over the course of a day from makeup, dirt and air pollution, contact and friction with masks, and many other things. Failing to wash your face can not only let these bacteria and oils linger on your skin but can also cause them to accumulate on your pillow, contributing to facial acne or rash. Taking a few minutes each night to clean your face will help your skin breathe and help prevent blemishes that could be a hassle to deal with in the morning.
Complete Your Dental Routine
Just as bacteria can build up on your skin every day, bacteria builds up even faster on and in between your teeth after each meal. Even though you should be brushing every day, you can’t get rid of all the build up over time. Daily brushing and flossing should be coupled with regular visits to your dentist to ensure a confident, healthy smile.
Pick Out Your Outfit
If you get into the habit of picking your outfit the night before, you will never face the problem of not having anything to wear the next morning. Choosing your outfit the night before also helps you look more put together because you can check your clothing items for stains, wrinkles, holes, unraveling threads, or other imperfections that could make you look sloppier and less professional. Curating your outfits before the morning rush will help you feel more confident in your clothes.
When time is of the essence and your beauty sleep is much needed, you can take a few extra minutes each night to look good the next morning. Taking time to complete your personal hygiene and thoughtfully plan out your day will save your health, appearance, and overall sanity. As you wake up feeling and looking better each day, you will be able to confidently face whatever the day has to offer you.Check out this article on why you should be drinking more water every day!
