Skimp on shut-eye and your skin will look dull. Beauty sleep is very important for repairing the hair and skin. You might think you are off the clock when it comes to your beauty routine while you sleep but your slumber hours play a vital role in how you look. The key is to get enough shut-eye, about 7 to 9 quality hours each night. Follow these 5 simple beauty sleep routine for a healthy, beautiful hair and skin.
Sleep on a satin or silk pillowcase.
These fibers are better for the skin because the material glides easily and prevents creasing and wrinkles and their texture softens wrinkles and fine lines because it causes less friction between your skin and the pillowcase. Silk is also easier on hair because it helps avoid tangles and breakage.
Change your pillowcases often.
Wash your pillowcases often, so you’re not resting your lovely skin on top of bacteria infested pillows for eight hours a night and you should not only change your pillowcases twice a week, but flip your pillows over on days you are not changing them.
Go to bed with a clean face.
So many people sleep with their makeup on and wonder why they wake up with breakouts and pore clogging in the morning. That’s why. So always make sure you clean of your makeup before going to bed.

Sleep on your back.
Sleeping on your back can help nip wrinkles in the bud before they even start to form. did you know that repeated pressure on the skin, causing creasing, can eventually lead to set-in lines. If you sleep on one side, you may have more set-in wrinkles on that particular side compared to the other.
