Flicking through women’s magazines often presents images of celebrities flaunting their perfectly toned bodies, luscious locks and smooth, blemish-free skin.
Achieving a constantly perfect and natural look day after day seems impossible and even inhuman when you’re having to juggle school runs, complete a long and exhausting day at work, cooking meals and many more daily activities that we undertake.
However although our celebs look like as though they pull of the natural look effortlessly, this isn’t necessarily without a helping hand of some well-known beauty products.
Pre-bedtime and the time in which you are asleep is the perfect opportunity for us to complete our beauty regimes so that we wake up with young looking and flawless skin, however with so many creams and facial cleanses all claiming to work their magic, it can be pretty hard to know what to go for!
Therefore let’s take a sneak peak at what some of our popular celebrities sleep time secrets are and their tips for waking up with the perfect youthful glow.
Clear, smooth and silky skin like Jacqueline Jossa
The actress who played the part of Lauren Branning in BBC1’s EastEnders can often be seen showing off her perfectly smooth and fleck-free face on Instagram which you can take a look at here.
One of the tips you could try help to achieve this look recommended by OK’s article is to double cleanse your face before bed. Although you might only usually cleanse your face once, doing it for a second time could help to ensure that all of the dirt and make-up on your face is removed to help prevent your pores from clogging up.
No7’s Beautiful Skin Cleansing Oil priced at £11.00 could be used for the first round of cleansing, and then finish off washing the face using Emma Hardie’s Amazing Face Moringa Foaming Cleansing Wash at £34.00 can help to condition the skin and help energise the senses.
Applying a moisturiser after cleaning the face will help to lock in moisture and keep your face hydrated which will assist in the repair of skin cells, leaving you with healthy as well as super soft skin!
Beautifully silky smooth skin like Millie Mackintosh
After first appearing on Made in Chelsea, Mille Mackintosh who is married to the British rap artist Professor Green has gone on to be a successful style, fitness and beauty icon.
Millie often shares a number of her beauty tips which you can take a look at on her Instagram account, however in an article published by Look discussing The Celebrity Guide To Making The Most Of Your Zzz, Millie says that she coats her hands in a thick layer of Ultra Hydrating Hand Cream before settling down to sleep.
At £15.50, this hand moisturiser enriched with rosehip, manuka honey and white tea is great for hydrating and giving antioxidant protection which will leave your hands silky smooth.
Shiny, full locks like Kourtney Kardashian
You might have seen her on the American reality television series, Keeping Up With The Kardashians, however Kourtney has many a time been snapped displaying beautifully shiny and smooth locks. Even when she was has apparently just woken up, there’s certainly no sign of bed hair with this celeb!
OK’s article suggests that one of the best ways to prevent a bird’s nest forming on your hair during the night is to apply Grow Gorgeous’ Overnight to Gorgeous Hair Masque at £21.99. The masque enriched with hyaluronic acid, purified mushroom and tamarind derivatives which you apply overnight helps to smooth, nourish and strengthen hair.
Another top tip for waking up with lustrous tresses is to apply an overnight conditioner to the ends of your hair. The benefit of leaving the conditioner on overnight is that it will have more time to infiltrate into the hair cuticles resulting in beautifully moisturised and healthy hair.
Smooth bronzed glow like Lucy Mecklenburgh
The former TOWIE star who now has her own online fitness and nutrition website www.resultswithlucy.com demonstrates that the right amount of exercise and nutrition really does pay off, as she displays a perfectly toned, curvaceous and tanned figure.
