Best overnight beauty buys
Give your beauty regime a head start with these clever beauty buys, which get to work while you snooze!
If you find winding down before bed a challenge, then a long soak in the tub is proven to aid relaxation. We like Westlab’s Relaxing Dead Sea Bath Fizzer (£3.49), which combines skin-calming Dead Sea salt with soothing white tea and lavender.
Night creams tend to be richer than day creams because the skin has all night to absorb the hydrating and anti-ageing ingredients. No7 claim the new Restore & Renew Multi Action Night Cream (£25/50ml) is their best age-defying solution for mature skin yet. It contains powerful peptide Matrixyl 3000+ to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles, as well as other firming and skin-boosting ingredients.
If dark under-eye bags and crows’ feet are your biggest bugbear, then Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye (£26/15ml) is well worth the investment. A little goes a long way and you’ll wake to younger and brighter looking eyes.
Experts say skin regenerates overnight, so give it a helping hand with a facial massage before you sleep. Massaging in your products improves circulation, helps ingredients absorb more efficiently and relaxes your facial muscles, too. Face oils are perfect for this and Pure’s Super Grape Treatment Oil (£16/28ml) contains skin-protecting resveratrol that will leave skin silky soft.
Feed thirsty skin with the Nspa Beauty Rituals Pure Hydration Overnight Mask (£6/75ml), which is fragrance-free and suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. Best used twice a week, simply pop it on after cleansing in place of your normal serum and night cream.
Packed full of nourishing vitamins, antioxidants and omega fatty acids, Tisserand’s Aromatherapy Sweet Dreams Body Oil (£9.95/100ml) will leave your skin beautifully conditioned. Not only that, but the comforting combination of lavender, sandalwood and jasmine will have you nodding off in minutes.
