The 6 Products That Will Take Your Night-Time Routine To The Next Level

To get a Julia Roberts-worthy glow, you’ll need an overnight regimen that really works

How you care for your skin and hair the night before can transform their appearance by morning. Thankfully, these face creams, hair balms 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 giving your skin 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 treatment: Hair Rituel by Sisley Restructuring Nourishing Balm

This treatment from Hair Rituel by Sisley is brilliant at preventing split ends and strengthening any existing hair damage, while a blend of oils (macadamia, moringa and meadowfoam seed, amongst others) gives good gloss without weighing down even the finest of strands. It can be used as a 30-minute treatment, but really penetrates to the core of the hair shaft when left overnight. Just apply a generous amount to dry hair before bed (it turns into a silky oil but won’t leave a greasy residue on your pillow) and wash it out in the morning for soft, super-glossy, frizz-free locks.

The no-peel peel: Eighth Day The Resurfacing Tonic

This retexturizing tonic is one of Eighth Day’s hero products for good reason, utilizing powerhouse AHAs (glycolic and lactic 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 (cucumber and aloe extracts soothe and balance), 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.
