IT’S TEMPTING TO GO STRAIGHT TO BED WHEN YOU’RE ON THE VERGE OF CRASHING OUT BUT DON’T DO IT! IF A CLEAR COMPLEXION IS YOUR GOAL THEN LOOK TO THESE CONVENIENT NIGHT-TIME PICKS.
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.

“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!”
