13 Simple Tricks to Get Clear Skin Overnight
Even if you're drinking water, getting enough sleep and a bit of exercise, those breakouts can be super sneaky. Nothing is more frustrating than having a wedding or job interview and having to deal with bad skin. If you are pressed for time and are looking for options for how to get clear skin overnight, here are 13 tried and true ways to get your best skin ASAP!
If you're someone who only suffers from the occasional pimple, you can use your fave face mask as an overnight spot treatment. Choose a heavy-duty skin-saver like Peter Thomas Roth Therapeutic Sulfur Masque ($47), pop it on your pimple before bed, and wake up to see it almost completely gone. (via Allure)
Sheet masks serve up a ton of nourishing hydration to your skin and are a mega chill way to relax. A cooling, invigorating option is the Florapy Jasmine Peppermint Detox Mask ($7) which will clear your skin up while perking it up at the same time. (via Broke and Beautiful)
Always wash your face before bed! If you're not washing away all the dirt and sweat from the day, you're asking for a breakout. Stash cleansing wipes (like this $13 set of Cetaphil Gentle Skin Cleansing Cloths) on your nightstand for nights when you're too tired to move. (via Seventeen)
A dry face is much more prone to wrinkles and breakouts, FYI. Simply washing your face before you sleep and applying a rich, non-comedogenic lotion (like the CeraVe Moisturizing Cream, $16+) will make a huge difference in the look and feel of your skin. (via Refinery 29)
Before bed, use a spot treatment containing a combination of sulfur and salicylic acid. Try Mario Badescu Drying Lotion for $17 to kill bacteria and clean out the pores. After cleaning your face, use a Q-tip to apply a spot treatment directly to any budding blemishes. (via Daily Makeover)
The ingredients in the Aztec Secret Indian Healing Clay Mask ($13, was $15) penetrate deep into your skin and clean out excess oil and bacteria. This can also double as an exfoliator to open pores and get rid of the gunk clogged inside! (via Rawmazing)
Whatever you do, resist the urge to squeeze. It is tempting to pick and pop at a pimple, but that can lead to permanent scarring and further breakouts. Consider a Mighty Patch Hydrocolloid Acne Pimple Patch ($13) instead. (via Daily Makeover)
Aloe Vera is famous for treating wounds and scars and also acts as a remedy to rid of acne fast. Apply Seven Minerals Organic Aloe Vera Gel ($20, was $25) or juice on spots and let dry for about one hour before washing it off with warm water. (via Mind Body Green)
Put your face in a NanoSteamer 3-in-1 Facial Steamer ($34, was $50) or over a bowl of boiling water and let the steam moisturize it for two to three minutes. This helps in removing dirt, dust and oil from the pores of the skin without aggravating pimples. (via Health Beneficial)
Aspirin Or Baking Soda
Dissolve an aspirin in a little water and then apply the paste to the spot for no more than five minutes. The reason this works is that aspirin and baking soda contain the same acid that many acne treatments use to exfoliate dry skin and decrease redness. (via Livestrong, image via engin akyurt/Unsplash)
