4 Budget-Friendly Hacks for Your Nighttime Routine
Is a good night's sleep leaving you feeling refreshed, but not looking it? Even at Mattress Firm, we have those mornings where our beauty rest feels like a rip-off and just doesn't seem to do the trick.
Check out these nighttime beauty tips to boost your look from sleep-deprived to well-rested instantly. Even better, these ideas are budget-friendly, keeping both you and your wallet happy.
Upgrade Your Sleep Space
Tired of your bedroom? Give your room a serious upgrade to improve your beauty sleep. It's amazing how a few small changes here and there can make a serious difference in your quality of sleep. A solid eight-hour snooze can leave you feeling refreshed and ready to take on the day ahead, so why not treat yourself to the sleep you deserve?
Start by brightening up your room. Natural (and artificial) light are a great way to keep you on your sleep schedule. A dark room can help induce sleep, while light in the morning can help you rise and shine. Along with light comes noise. If you live in a noisy neighborhood or have a loud roommate, invest in a white noise machine or even a pair of earplugs to help you sleep through the night.
Last but not least — give your bed a new level of comfort. At Mattress Firm, you can upgrade your mattress without breaking the bank. If you're not sleeping well, your mattress could be to blame. Mattress Firm offers the best value for your spend, so stock up on all things sleep and add comfy mattress to your list of nighttime beauty tips.
Face Masks for (Almost) Free
Look your best in the AM with a homemade face mask. Don't spend $40 or more on an overpriced mask — all of the fresh ingredients you need can be found right in your home!
Who says you can't have breakfast for dinner? Try the breakfast mask for a calm, soothing (and delicious) DIY for your night sskincare routine. Comprised of only one egg yolk, one tablespoon of honey, and one tablespoon of olive oil with half a cup of oatmeal. Stir it around and apply, leaving it on your face for up to 20 minutes. If you're not a breakfast fan, check out these other DIY masks to up your skin care game.
Test Before You Invest
Most of us love applying high-end treatments and cremes to our skin before bed, but do they really make a difference? Before investing in that small bottle of overnight serum, try testing a more inexpensive version for your night skin care routine. If you don't notice a difference in two weeks, think of the all the money you can save in the long run.
Often times, the drug store alternative is just as good as the luxury brand with equally positive reviews, so Mattress Firm recommends giving it a try before you buy something with a bigger price tag. After all, saving money leads to night of worry-free sleeping, which is the ultimate nighttime beauty tip, right?
Reconsider Your Routine
If you're eating too close to bed or drinking caffeine in the evening, you might be able to find a sleep solution without spending more. Who knows? Cutting out your evening cup of tea could make all the difference!
Instead of using expensive sleeping aids and pills, take a closer look at your routine and identify those iffy activities you normally do before bed. Are their certain bad habits you could cut? Take a look at a few tips on how to sleep like an expert. By practicing these pointers, you can not only improve your beauty sleep, but also put some money back into your bank account.
