Sleeping Beauty

sleeping beauty

Is it me, or does daylight savings totally mess up your sleep schedule? Should I go to bed an hour earlier or wake up an hour later in order to catch up on my sleep? Either way, I still feel like I haven’t slept enough and the condition of my skin shows proof.

Getting those eight hours of sleep is essential in preventing wrinkles and dark under eye circles. But there are also a ton of amazing skin care products that you can use at night if you’re not much of a sleeping beauty.

Keep reading below for the list of products I like to use at night. After using these products, I wake up with refreshed and revitalized skin.

ilia balmy nights

Ilia Balmy Nights is a lip exfoliator in a stick form that’s so easy to use! After washing my face at night, I gently scrub my lips with the balm, then wipe off with a damp towel. It’s pretty moisturizing thanks to beeswax and shea butter. If you need a little more moisture, feel free to apply a lip conditioner.

lani tropical hair treatment kypris moonlight catalyst

First of all, this overnight hair treatment smells like sweet coconut butter. So divine! Lani Tropical Hair Treatment is packed with only four ingredients – Camelia, Coconut, Kukui, and Macadamia Oils. Together, these oils moisturize, strengthen, repair, and protect damaged tresses. To use, apply evenly to dry hair from roots to ends. Put hair in a ponytail or braid and leave in overnight. Wash hair in the morning and shiny, healthy hair will be revealed.

If you’ve been following my blog, you know that I’m a huge fan of Kypris Beauty. I appreciate the thought and care they put into each product, from ingredients to packaging. Everything I’ve used from Kypris works wonders on my skin including their Moonlight Catalyst. This serum is an herbal alternative to retinol, which can irritate the skin. While sleeping, pumpkin enzymes gently exfoliate and sea algae hydrates. You’ll awaken to an even skin tone and a radiant glow. #faveproduct

kiehl's midnight recovery

When I’m not getting enough sleep, this eye cream does wonders for my tired eyes! Squalane is the main ingredient used in Kiehl’s Midnight Recovery Eye because it masters at restoring moisture to the skin, i.e. undereye dryness. To use, rub a couple of drops into fingertips and lightly press under and around your eyes.

Dr. Hauschka Night Serum is an oil-free gel formula that balances and conditions your skin while sleeping. I love how it didn’t leave a sticky residue, instead, it melted right into my skin. And talk about having totally clear and fresh skin the next morning?!?!

the body shop sleeping cream

The Body Shop describes their Sleeping Cream as a nourishing and cushiony cream that replenishes your skin like a dream. I completely agree with that statement wholeheartedly! They use the best of best ingredients that repair your skin while slumbering. After the first time using this, I woke up to a brighter and plumper complexion. This cream is literally perfection in a jar.

Hurray for these new night skincare products! Now, I can look rested even if I haven’t gotten my eight hours sleep. What is your nightly beauty routine? I’d love to hear about it in the comments below.

    Oh wow the Kypris and the hair treatment sounds amazing. The one I really want to try though is the gentle lip exfoliate by Ilia. My lips have been terribly dry lately and even my Tata Harper Lip treatment is no match. Maybe a nightly lip treatment might help, Ill definitely look into it. My nightly routine needs help for sure i wash, and dry then sometimes add a moisturizer, and once a week do the deep sea mud mask. if my skin feels too crazy i add a sheet mask in between the mud mask. But i would definitely like some more pointers on what to use for over active skin. My skin is very oily now (which it wasn’t before) and i keep breaking out even when I switch products. I have a slight feeling its because I sleep hard on my face but, i cant help it. :/ Also summer is creeping in and i wanted to know any recommendations for light non-greasy natural products, specifically non-comedogenic that is long lasting through my greasy sweaty skin during the day, and for the night. I ask that separately because my room is stuffy and hot and i tend to skip some nightly moisturizers because it just adds to the uncomfort of the hot night. Help Renee! haha
