April 25, 2016 THE KLOG

What are 10 beauty habits you should definitely have at night? Well, according to this viral Korean news article, these are on the top ten list for Korean women.

Editor's note: This round up was directly translated from the Korean news source for your enjoyment!
1. Use a sheet mask

If wrinkles are your main concern, use a sheet mask before you go to sleep to deeply moisturize the skin. It will help you plump up the skin and smooth out any fine lines. Sheet masking will also help your makeup look flawless the next day.


2. Cleanse thoroughly

If you sleep with your makeup on, your skin won't be able to breathe or restore itself. Cleanse thoroughly so you can prevent clogged pores, breakouts and enlarged pores.


3. Use a humidifier
Use a humidifier at night when you are sleeping for moist, supple skin! The next day you won't even have to apply a thick layer of moisturizer because your skin is already dewy and hydrated.


4. Use an eye cream
If you're over 20 years old, it's definitely time to invest in an eye cream. If you leave the skin around your eyes dry and dehydrated, you'll develop fine lines and wrinkles. 


5. Use two pillows
If your face is the type to be very bloated when you wake up, stack two pillows on top of each other. Resting on a higher plane will help drain any excess fluid from the face.


6. Brush your teeth
Brush your teeth after you eat dinner or before you go to sleep to prevent cavities. Brushing your teeth also keeps you from indulging in any late-night snacks.


7. Bathe your lower body
Taking a warm bath will help your skin by promoting overall body blood circulation and by removing impurities from the skin. It also reduces bloating of your legs, so it'll even help your body look slimmer overall. 


8. Brush your hair
Brushing your hair promotes blood circulation and makes your hair healthy. When brushing, add oil to the ends of your hair for healthier locks.


9. Clear your face of hair
Pollution, makeup and hair product residue can get on your face and cause breakouts. Before going to sleep, keep your hair from touching your face by using bobby pins.


10. Get plenty of sleep
The best thing you can do for your skin is to get plenty of sleep. So avoid caffeine and keep your smartphone out of reach so you can fall into a deep sleep.
