7 Beauty Treatments That Work Their Magic While You Sleep
If you thought you couldn’t make the most of your sleep time, you’d be wrong. While time spent between your linen sheets is prime time for your body and mind to rest, relax and recharge, it’s also the perfect opportunity to take advantage of beauty treatments formulated to work their hardest while you’re at your most unconscious.
All you need to do is apply before bed, get straight into those buttery soft sheets of yours, and get some shut-eye. Minimal effort, maximum results.
If your skin is feeling a bit stressed out right now, this overnight mask will bring it the Zen it needs. Containing the healing and strengthening cica ingredient, forest yeast, it’ll work while you sleep to sooth and nourish your skin. Just apply generously as your last skin care step, and head to bed.
A typical 10-20 minute hair mask session isn’t for everyone, and if you just can’t be bothered with the routine of it all, this treatment has your name written all over it. Formulated with nourishing oils to help bring damaged, dull, and brittle hair back to life, all you need to do is apply to dry hair before bed, wash your hair when you wake up, and enjoy the silky softness.
A healthy slathering of this combination of hyaluronic acid and alpha hydroxy acids (including glycolic acid and lactic acid) will having you waking up to smooth, soft and glowing skin come morning. And if watermelon-scented products are your thing, you’ll love this even more.
Sure, you’ve probably applied a fake tan before bed a million times before, but both the Sleep Mask for face and body have been specifically formulated for bed time, meaning that they’re fast-drying and colourless (so you don’t have to worry about ruining your precious linen sheets) and super hydrating to ensure you wake up to skin that’s soft and supple with a bronzed glow.
Noticed a few more lines and wrinkles than you’d like? This supercharged sleeping mask could be worth adding to your night routine. Packed with ingredients to boost hydration and nourishment, it also works to firm skin, reduce the appearance of lines, and restore radiance.
If you get your hair highlighted or bleached, you’d be doing yourself a favour to have this treatment in your arsenal. The water-based formula is lightweight, so won’t weigh down fine hair types, but is still nourishing enough to restore strength and elasticity. Also, you won’t have to worry about any oils or waxes marking your pillow.
Winter is coming, and so is dry, dehydrated skin (you can think your heater, how showers and those icy mornings for that!). This overnight treatment is the all-rounder you need in the colder months to help tackle that loss of moisture and replenish skin in just a few hours.
