Woman’s Day (Australia) - - Beauty -

They don’t call it beauty sleep for noth­ing! Your nightly snooze­fest is when your body, skin, hair and nails best re­lax and re­pair them­selves. So go beyond a sim­ple evening cleanse and mois­turise – add these treat­ments to your evening rit­ual to re­ally nail the #iwoke­u­p­likethis look.

THE SKIN BRIGHTENER ORI­GINS MEGAMEGA-BRIGHT DADARK SPOT CORRECTING NIGHT MASK $84

If sum­mer’s harsh rays have left un­wanted patches of pig­men­ta­tion, give this mask a go. Lighter than your av­er­age night cream and for­mu­lated with vi­ta­min C-rich plant ex­tracts that ooze melanin­in­hibit­ing prop­er­ties, it’s a po­tent yet gen­tle rem­edy. Af­ter you’ve cleansed, ap­ply the serum and mas­sage into the skin with gen­tle, cir­cu­lar mo­tions.

THE BRITTLE BUSTER SALLYS HANSEN MOIS­TURE RE­HAB OVERNIGHT O NAIL SERUM $16.95

Much like your skin, nails get dry, too. The hot sum­mer sun com­bined with air con­di­tion­ing can dry out the tips, mak­ing them more frag­ile and prone to break­ing. To fix, ap­ply this overnight serum that con­tains mois­ture and nutri­ent-rich ex­tracts for in­tense nail and cu­ti­cle restora­tion. The light­weight for­mula is made of black or­chid, acai, al­gae ac­tives and humec­tants to help hy­drate and re­ju­ve­nate dry or weak nails. Add a few drops to each nail bed and mas­sage in.

THE BODY BUILDER AVEDA INVATI SCALP REVITALIZER $89.95

Our tresses with­stand a lot day to day, from over-styling to hor­monal changes, mak­ing strands frag­ile, por­ous and even prone to fall­ing out. But worry not! Spritz this scalp re­vi­taliser on your roots – hair can be wet or dry – and mas­sage in to let the blend of laven­der, rose­mary, ylang-ylang, myr­tle and am­brette essen­tial oils re­pair epair any dam­age.

THE GLOW GETTER JAMES READ SLEEP MASK TAN FACE $46

Those who are sun smart will know to keep their faces away from UV rays, but that of­ten leaves our faces look­ing paler than the rest of our bod­ies. To get the glow, add a few drops of this overnight tan­ning sleep mask to cleansed skin be­fore you hit the hay. It con­tains aloe vera and hyaluronic acid to hy­drate the skin, cu­cum­ber to soothe and al­gae ex­tract to fight age­ing skin.

THE HAIR REVIVER

SACHAJUAN OVER NIGHT HAIR RE­PAIR $65 If dry, brittle locks are your neme­sis, try an overnight treat­ment to do the heavy lift­ing while you sleep. Look for a prod­uct with in­gre­di­ents like al­gae ex­tract that’ll strengthen both the in­side and out­side of the hair cu­ti­cle. Ap­ply this gel through clean locks and leave in overnight. Af­ter rins­ing, your hair will feel re­vived.

THE SU­PER SERUM

ULTRACEUTICALS UL­TRA A SKIN PERFECTING SERUM $132 Vi­ta­min A is a su­per­star anti-ager. “It’s an all­rounder, work­ing to help brighten the skin, re­duce the ap­pear­ance of fine lines and wrin­kles, and reg­u­late se­bum pro­duc­tion,” says Global Ed­u­ca­tion am­bas­sador for Ultraceuticals Tracey Beeby. Re­mem­ber that vi­ta­min A (or retinol as it’s com­monly re­ferred) works best af­ter hours. “It’s pho­to­sen­si­tive, so the ac­tive in­gre­di­ent can be­come in­ef­fec­tive in sun­light,” Tracey ex­plains. At night, mas­sage in a pea-sized amount to the face and neck on al­ter­nate days, grad­u­ally build­ing to daily use

as tol­er­ated.

THE FLAKE FIGHTER

SARAH CHAP­MAN OVERNIGHT BODY TREAT­MENT $81.78 Days spent at the beach can cause skin to be­come dry and flaky. Res­cue your pins from peel­ing with this overnight treat­ment. Based on Sarah’s ac­claimed Overnight Fa­cial, just four to six pumps will cover you from neck to toe, mois­tur­is­ing in­tensely. The dry serum-oil con­tains light­weight, omega-rich ar­gan and camel­lia oils and vi­ta­mins A, C and E to deeply nour­ish.

Rosie Hunt­ing­tonWhite­ley “It’s the best fa­cial tan­ning prod­uct I’ve ever used,” says the model.
