If you have dandruff, use your anti-dandruff as you sleep. This can help lessen flaking through the day.
Soften Dry Hands or Heels
Our hands and heels tend to be the areas that become dry due to how much pressure it goes through and harsh chemicals that gets on them. We can help soften these areas as we sleep by hydrating them with hand cream or nourishing oils. You can even use lotions or any type of moisturizer.

Putting it in the fridge can help reduce puffiness in the morning and soothe your eyes as you sleep. Apply your anti-wrinkle cream to have the same effect on your skin. You can also use nourishing oils while you sleep, but applying too much of this can cause your skin to be too oily in the morning. Once you finish applying creams or oils, take some castor oil and apply it on your eyelashes to help make them grow thicker and stronger.
