The 6 Products That Will Take Your Night-Time Routine To The Next Level
How you care for your skin and hair the night before can transform their appearance by morning. Thankfully, these face creams, hair oils and body butters can put those twilight hours to good use, says MALENA HARBERS
The repairing treatment: Noble Panacea The Brilliant Overnight Recharge Cream
It’s no secret that targeted skincare works particularly well overnight, during skin’s repairing phase, so that, come morning, your complexion looks refreshed and rested (even if you aren’t). However, this mineral-rich Brilliant Overnight Recharge Cream from Noble Panacea puts in a double shift to jump-start cell turnover and collagen production with its potent antioxidant cocktail of kelp and gotu kola.
The lightweight mask: 111Skin Molecular Hydration Mask
Whether you have an important engagement or simply want to set your skin up for the week ahead, this is a product everyone should have in their beauty arsenal. If you have dry skin, you’ll want to apply two layers of this 111Skin mask, as it’s great for hydration, while oily skin types will also love it because it’s not heavy – you can even forgo your usual serums and apply this directly to cleansed skin before going to bed. With the help of two powerhouse ingredients – vitamin C and hyaluronic acid – you can expect to wake up with a brighter, plumper, firmer complexion, whatever your skin type.
The luxe hydrator: La Mer The Moisturizing Soft Cream
When it comes to achieving that sumptuously nourished and cocooned feeling, this cream remains unrivaled. La Mer fans and beauty editors have been drenching themselves in it for years before the trend was even popular; simply apply the formula over your usual skincare products and let it sink in overnight. Containing La Mer’s signature Miracle Broth ingredient, it will help to rehydrate dry, sensitive cells, without ever feeling heavy or cloying. Plus, if your skin’s feeling out of kilter after a day at the beach, on the slopes or traveling, it will bounce back after receiving just one dose of this iconic product.
The shine-restoring hair oil: Balmain Paris Hair Couture Overnight Repair Hair Serum
This overnight hair treatment from Balmain Paris Hair Couture is brilliant at preventing split ends and strengthening any existing hair damage, while argan oil and silk proteins give good gloss without weighing down even the finest of strands. Apply a few drops to towel-dried hair before bed (it won’t leave a greasy residue on your pillow) and wash it out in the morning for soft, silky, frizz-free locks. Once hair is dry, you can add an extra shot to mid-lengths and ends to get that A-list, super-glossy, ‘liquid hair’ look.
The no-peel peel: Révive Moisturizing Renewal Cream – Nightly Retexturizer
This resurfacing cream is Révive’s bestseller for good reason, utilizing powerhouse AHAs (glycolic and polyhydroxy acids) to tackle a whole host of skin concerns – from dullness and breakouts to fine lines and wrinkles. You’ll see a smoother, softer, more even complexion after just one night’s use. How? The formula works its magic by exfoliating skin and boosting cell turnover super-gently, so you don’t experience any flaking or redness – just a more radiant glow.
The nourishing body balm: Tata Harper Redefining Body Balm
Giving your body a little extra TLC overnight will help to keep your skin soft and supple, especially when dealing with seasonal changes, and this Tata Harper body balm does just that. It’s packed with antioxidants to help stave off fine lines and pigmentation, but the best part is its firming, plumping and instant cocooning effect on dry skin. Apply a generous amount pre-bath (think of it as slugging for your body), or leave it on all night to soak in, then shower off the balm come morning.
