Sleeping Beauty: Products That Work While We Rest
Can you remember the last time you got your beauty rest? Fact of the matter is that many of us can’t. When a frenzied schedule and overload of stress infringe on your hopes of a good night’s sleep, both your skin and hair can be left visibly worn-out and dull. There’s no denying that sleep is pretty essential in maintaining definitive health and wellness. After all, it’s not called “beauty sleep” for nothing! Luckily, Spafinder Wellness 365 has compiled a list of the latest and greatest products you’ll need in order to snooze… but definitely not lose!
Dreamtime Bath Melt – Lush Cosmetics ($6.25)
Nothing says “good night’s sleep” like taking the most calming bath imaginable. Use this creamy sleep-inducing herbal bath bar (which melts right into bath water) right before bedtime and you’ll be sure to kiss your insomnia goodbye! Dreamtime Bath Melt is a natural sleep therapy that’s packed with lavender, jasmine, chamomile, and sandalwood – the most soothing and comforting essential oils to cure those restless nights. Melt one of these bars into your bath if you’re looking for both smooth skin and sweet dreams.
Moisture Surge Overnight Mask – Clinique ($33)
This powerful oil-free night mask works deep into the skin to replenish lost moisture. Simply smooth the product evenly over your face and gently massage until it is fully absorbed. Throughout the night, this mask alleviates and nourishes your skin so that it holds in the right amount of moisture needed to wake up with naturally soft, hydrated, glowing skin!
Clear Days Ahead – Philosophy ($39)
If you don’t sleep on your back during the night, it’s likely that your face is getting a lot of “quality time” with your pillow each night, which leaves much potential for your skin to get oily and break out. If you’re typically prone to getting these unwanted breakouts, be sure to use Philosophy’s Clear Days Ahead before hitting the pillow. These overnight repair salicylic acid acne treatment pads help keep your pores clear and prevent future acne breakouts while simultaneously refining your skin’s general exterior. It’s a win-win in one pad!
Sachajuan’s Over Night Hair Repair – Sephora ($60)
Aside from impacting your skin, sleep deprivation can also do serious damage to your luscious locks. To keep your hair looking shiny and healthy, use Sachajuan’s Over Night Hair Repair. This overnight hair treatment revamps and strengthens your hair while you catch some zzz’s. This hair-repair formula is compatible with all hair types and is filled with a rich application of Sachajuan’s renowned Ocean Silk Technology, which is packed with algae content and minerals that help to create a naturally restored look that all ladies desire when they wake up in the morning.
Shiseido’s Benefiance NutriPerfect Night Cream – Sephora ($94)
If you’re craving more vivacious, younger-looking skin, be sure to use Shiseido’s Benefiance NutriPerfect Night Cream. This high-performance nighttime improvement cream escalates relaxation with its soothing fragrance and contains Carnosine (an oxidation-attacking peptide that helps increase skin cell life by enhancing defense mechanisms against free radicals) along with multivitamin B, C, P and E. This product refurbishes skin density and stiffness to achieve vitality and overall younger-looking skin while you sleep.
Enchanted Eye Cream – Lush Cosmetics ($26.95)
One of the most sensitive areas on your face is the skin under your eyes. In order to gently (and naturally) protect this area of the skin by keeping it agile while you sleep, use Lush Cosmetics’ Enchanted Eye Cream. This product minimizes fine lines in the skin with its mixed natural ingredients of lavender honey water (which reduces skin swelling), cold almond and jojoba oils (used for moisturizing) and honey (for that complete revitalized look).
Nightly Beauty Blend (Chocolate Bliss, Chocolate Chai, or Vanilla Dream) – Beauty Foods ($49.99)
Nightly Beauty is an all-natural mix of vitamins A,B ,C and E (as well as Biotin and Magnesium) along with a natural collagen complex that helps improve sleep so you’ll wake up with a radiant glow.
