BEDTIME BEAUTY

Female (Malaysia) - - FASHION BEAT -

Beauty sleep is real and if you take time to in­dulge in a few key prod­ucts be­fore you hit the hay, I guar­an­tee you’ll wake up to smooth and hy­drated skin ev­ery morn­ing.

– Sarah, Beauty Edi­tor

“A study by Sothys shows that we’ve been sleep­ing lesser and lesser (by two hours to be ex­act) com­pared to those from two gen­er­a­tions ago, and that’s caus­ing dam­age to our health. I haven’t been get­ting enough snooze time for a year now (mummy du­ties!) and this has caused my com­plex­ion to be less than ideal. So with the lim­ited amount of sleep I get, I’ll make the most of it by us­ing clever night-time skin­care prod­ucts since cel­lu­lar re­newal ac­tiv­ity is twice ac­tive at night. This overnight cream detox­i­fies skin from daily pol­lu­tion and in my case, lack of sleep, re­vives cell ac­tiv­ity and resyn­chro­nises cells to the cir­ca­dian clock while sooth­ing and de-stress­ing skin so I wake up to a healthy, re­laxed and glow­ing com­plex­ion in the morn­ing. Min­i­mum ef­fort, max­i­mum re­sults – yes, please!”

“I like to al­ter­nate my night creams so I can fo­cus on dif­fer­ent con­cerns. I use this one to tar­get dark spots and cor­rect un­even skin. It comes with a high con­cen­tra­tion of patented Vinifer­ine (an ac­tive in­gre­di­ent from grapevine sap), the most ef­fec­tive and nat­u­ral mol­e­cule to com­bat dark spots. Not only will this bring about a well-rested and ra­di­ant com­plex­ion when I wake up, new spots are also pre­vented from ap­pear­ing.”

“Sleep­ing in an air-con­di­tioned room not only dries up your skin but causes your lips to be­come re­ally dry too, which is why I’d rec­om­mend ap­ply­ing a rich balm while you sleep. I ab­so­lutely love this one for its ob­vi­ous sweet water­melon scent. But be­yond that, it’s filled with skin-lov­ing in­gre­di­ents such as shea but­ter to lock in mois­ture, rose­hip that’s rich in es­sen­tial fatty acids to keep lips look­ing smooth, and carotenoids and vi­ta­mins to im­prove the ap­pear­ance of dry and chapped lips. What’s even bet­ter? It can also be used as a cu­ti­cle treat­ment!”

“If you’re hav­ing trouble fall­ing asleep, then this anti-ox­i­dant eye cream will def­i­nitely help thanks to its cool­ing prop­er­ties that’ll put you at ease. It’s for­mu­lated with or­ganic Jeju green tea and green tea seed ex­tract that pro­vide mois­ture and nour­ish­ment on the del­i­cate skin around your eyes and is such a treat, es­pe­cially af­ter a long day. This jar is value for money too as the cream is thick and you’ll only need a small amount to apply on each time!”
