After your nightly shower, apply a leave-in conditioner or hair mask to your damp tresses and leave it on overnight. The next morning, you’ll wake up to shiny, silky hair. If you skip the shower, just apply some dry shampoo to your roots, and voila! Fresh looking and smelling hair in the a.m. Carol’s Daughter Sacred Tiare Anti-Breakage and Anti-Frizz Restoring Hair Mask, $12.60, Target.
Pretty Your Pout
Slough off any flakiness from your lips with a washcloth, then apply a soothing mask overnight. All you need is a thin layer of almond oil, which rejuvenates the dead cells, for the most smooth and sensual lips ever. Heritage’s Sweet Almond Oil, $10.56, Walmart.
Fab Your Face
Your skin loses lots of water while you sleep. Using an overnight face mask basically guarantees that you will wake up with the most insanely moisturized, silky, glowy complexion. It’s lazy luxury at its best. Freeman Feeling Beautiful Facial Sleeping Mask, Honeydew & Chamomile, $5, Amazon.
Brighten Your Eyes
Storing your eye cream in the fridge increases its effectiveness and prolongs the life of the product. Plus, the cooling effect not only de-puffs and reduces dark circles around your eyes, but also soothes them while you sleep. Apply your cream before bedtime and wake up with refreshed peepers. Burt’s Bees Intense Hydration Eye Cream, $13.50, Target.
Smooth Your Skin
With the colder weather, you’re probably suffering from cracked and dry heels. Gross. Well, suffer no more. Simply coat your feet with a hefty slab of Vaseline and then stuff your tootsies in a pair of cotton socks before you go to sleep. The socks ensure the moisturizer sticks and penetrates your skin easily. Your feet will thank you in the morning. Vaseline Petroleum Jelly, $4, Walmart.
