overnight beauty time savers

review swatch photo

Ah, beauty sleep. That ol’ wives tale. During the night, it’s prime time to pile on the products and sneak a few beauty treatments in. All it takes is a few minutes before bed, and you could wake up a whole new person. Well maybe not a whole new person but maybe a slightly less bedraggled looking!

Faking a Glow

To wake up with nicely bronzed skin it's worth popping a bit of gradual tanner on the face before climbing into bed. Add a few drops of the new Clarin's Radiance Plus Golden Glow Booster into your usual facial moisturiser to give a custom gradual tan over night. If you wanted an all over glow opt for Xen Tan Dark Lotion - it's fool proof and once left over night to develop you're left with a natural deep tan.

Wake up with Radiant Skin

A glycolic acid as toner used over night will help break down the lipids between the skin cells and leave you with a fresher more radiant look. I cant get enough of the Alpha H Liquid Gold on those nights where my skin needs a good ol’ fashioned brightening treatment. It’s hard to explain how different your skin looks in the morning after using this… but DAMN it looks good.

Serious Serums

Overnight is the best time to indulge your skin and be extra kind to it. Overnight serums work wonders at treating various skin ailements so make sure you choose one thats right for your skin. If you have aging skin,  you could use a few drops of the Kiehls Midnight Recovery Concentrate as it helps to replenish skin with moisture and make the skin more radiant. If you have troublesome spot prone skin try the Estee Lauder Clear Difference Advance Blemish Treatment.

Overnight Spot Treatment

Night time is the perfect to use the strong stuff to attack any nasty looking zits. Keep things potent and packed full of spot fighting ingredients like Tea Tree Oil (Like The Body Shop Tea Tree Oil) or salicylic acid. I adore the Aesop Control Gel - It’s drying and moisturising at the time, and when I use it overnight I see a huge difference in spot size come my alarm call.

Be nice to your hair

Hours of tossing and turning can be bad on your hair. I always put my hair up to go to bed. Investing in a satin or silk pillowcase will help to reduce frizz while tossing and turning! Every now and again pop an overnight hair mask on to deep condition while you sleep. It might not be sexy sleeping in a shower cap, but it will leave you with a glossy and beautiful mane in the morning.

  4. Great products! I've also had the Tea Tree Oil from the Body Shop and as a tanner I'm using the Instant smooth self tanning from Clarins, your skin looks much better already after applying it. The Clear Difference from EL sounds great! Have to try it! xx

  5. I use the Alpha-H Liquid Gold and love it as well. I also have the Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate, but I'm afraid I fail to see visible effects when I use this. I like its feeling and scent however. Still, because I don't see much of its point, I rarely use it.

  11. I really like the sound of a lot of these products. I actually do sleep on a silk pillowcase - as well as being kinder to your hair it's supposed to help with minimising wrinkles. Can't say I've noticed if it really makes a difference or not but it certainly feels nice! x
