How to glow up overnight
So are you ready to glow up overnight with some serious top to toe pampering? Elevate your beauty game with the ultimate glow up overnight guide….
Scalp massage and scrub
Massaging the scalp increases blood flow to the hair follicles and improved circulation means better nutrient delivery to your hair roots which means healthier and stronger hair growth for you!
If you’re hair is thinning or you want to give your hair volume a boost, start to give yourself regular scalp massages to notice a difference.
While your doing it, gently scrub the scalp with a soft tooth hair brush to help lift away dead skin cells, excess oil, and product build-up. This cleansing action can prevent clogged follicles, allowing for even more healthier hair growth.
Apply a nourishing hair mask or conditioner that you can leave on for 10-15 minutes to restore your hair and for extra shiny locks. Overnight treatments can intensely hydrate and revitalise your hair. The Kerastase Genesis Masque delivers intense hydration and nourishment for your hair, the perfect addition to your overnight glow-up routine.
Before your shower or bath, do some dry brushing on your body to stimulate circulation and exfoliate dead skin cells.
Cleanse and Exfoliate
Thoroughly cleansing your skin to remove impurities. Follow it up with a gentle exfoliation to slough away dead skin cells and reveal a fresher complexion.
Hydrate your skin with a good-quality moisturizer suited for your skin type. Look for ingredients like hyaluronic acid or glycerin for maximum hydration.
If you feel better without body hair, remove unwanted body hair by shaving, waxing or other hair removal methods.
Brush and Floss
Thoroughly brush and floss your teeth before bed for a clean and fresh mouth in the morning.
For the ultimate glow up overnight, help to remove any stains on your teeth and give them a brighten up with teeth whitening products, there are various types on the market. Teeth whitening gel, whitening strips or toothpaste – choose your favourite to use at night that will help to brighten your smile overnight.
Cleanse and Exfoliate
Gently exfoliate your face, including your lips to remove dead skin cells and brighten your face.
Hydrate your lips
Apply a thick layer of lip balm or a hydrating overnight lip mask for soft, supple lips in the morning.
Apply a hydrating or brightening face mask for a quick boost. We love a sheet masks here at YNLS for the most dewy and hydrating skin boost or overnight masks can work wonders while you sleep.
Night Cream or Serum
Finish your face treatments off by appling a nourishing night cream or serum to know that while your going to sleep your skin is repairing and rejuvenating.
Hands, Feet, and Nails
Apply a rich hand cream and foot cream before bed, moisturising gloves and socks are great for this as they lock in the extra moisture.
Massage cuticle oil into your nails to nourish them overnight so that they are ready for extra care in the morning and ready for filing some nail polish to finish them off.
Quality Sleep is one of the biggest boosts to your overnight glow up – having at least 7-8 hours of quality sleep will rejuvenate your mind, body and skin leaving you feeling extra fresh in the morning.
How to glow up overnight on the inside too
An overnight glow-up is fantastic, but complementing your external pampering with looking after what you consume and glowing up from the inside out will leave you radiant, and gives you a holistic transformation to glow from within.
Diet and Hydration
While there’s no one-size-fits-all diet for a glow-up, a balanced and nutritious diet rich in greens, fruits, vegetables, lean proteins, and healthy fats can contribute to clearer skin, healthier hair, and an overall radiant appearance.
The benefits of drink plenty of water throughout the day are endless. You should aim to have at least six glasses of water a day to keep your body functioning properly – and most important of all – your focus clear.
Mental and Emotional Well-being
Practice stress-relieving techniques like meditation, yoga, or deep breathing exercises. Lowering stress levels can reduce skin issues like breakouts and dullness.
Cultivate a positive mindset. Embracing positivity boosts self-confidence and radiates an inner glow that’s contagious.
All of these ideas combined will not only help you glow up overnight, but also nurture a sustainable radiance that reflects your inner health, happiness, and well-being. True beauty radiates when you prioritise both inner and outer care!
