5 Minutes to Beautiful Skin by Morning

Don't have the time to have a time-consuming skin care routine in the morning? Take some time before you go to bed. All you need is 5 minutes! There are things you can do before you go to sleep that will make big improvements in your skin, no matter if you want to work on acne, fine lines, dull or dry skin.
Many people just grab a facial cleansing cloth before bed (me!) but by taking a little time to invest in your skin instead of just wiping away the makeup, benefits will build over time and you'll see what little it takes to see big changes.
Even if you don't do all of these steps or use all of these products, we hope it will encourage you to carve out a few extra minutes before bed to care for your body's biggest organ
1. Cleanse
It's the obvious first step, we know, but so often we fall into bed after a long day and don't really think it's a huge deal if we skip a night or two of face washing, especially if you wear a certain mineral makeup that tells you it's safe to sleep in. But the reality is, your skin has been put through a lot during the day.

2. Exfoliate
If you're counting the minutes to make sure we stop at five, there is good news here, depending on what exfoliator you're using; many exfoliating products should only be used two or three times a week. You could use a grainy manual exfoliator if you'd like, but because we're pressed for time and energy, we recommend going with something like St Ives: Scrub-Free Exfoliating Pads which literally take seconds to use
Simply swipe the wipe on your face and the AHA's will easy exfoliate for you. These pads are gentle enough to use daily and we saw results starting after only a few day

Treatment Product
Now that you've cleansed and exfoliated, it's time to use the treatment products if you need them. Examples of a treatment product
The great part about using these products at night versus the morning is that they have time to work while you're sleeping and you can wake up with results. This is especially true about spot treatments and products with retinol or other anti-aging ingredients.

5. Sleeping Position
If you're a belly sleeper, you might deal with puffy eyes and morning face creases. Over time and with repeated creasing, fine lines get deeper
To get an idea of how wrinkles form, picture a paperclip. When you bend that paperclip back and forth and back and forth, after a while, the paperclip will break. This is the same with your skin. Repetitive motions that cause creases in your skin will break the collagen and elastic fibers in your skin and cause wrinkles anywhere on the face, not just around the eyes."
Try sleeping on your back to reduce this repetitive creasing. Dr. Schultz also recommends silk pillow cases: "When you use a silk pillow case, your skin is able to slide easier and won’t get tugged or pulled by the pillow case.
