Ironically, the older I get, the more I need my beauty sleep ... but the less sleep I seem to get! Long gone are the days when I could stay up all night, then go to work or class the next morning looking fresh as a daisy. And, long gone are the days when I could sleep in (and sleep and sleep!). I'm sure a lot of you can relate, which is why it's great that there are some excellent skicare products out there that do their magical work while we catch our precious Z's.
Here are a few of my favorite beauty sleep helpers...
The Body Shop Vitamin E Overnight Serum-in-Oil is a really affordable, excellent serum. It absorbs super fast, and you can wear it alone or under your night cream. I'm in love after using it for a couple of months! (On sale for $15.60 at The Body Shop)
Think of Korres Wild Rose + Vitamin C Advanced Brightening Sleeping Facial as a beauty mask that you sleep in. The hero ingredient is Korres "Phos Compound," which is a proprietary blend that includes a brightening agent and stabilized vitamin C, so it works to brighten skin, clear up dark spots, and add luminosity. ($48 at Sephora)
C.O. Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm is an ultra rich lips balm meant to rejuvinate chapped and dry lips overnight. Smoochie, smoochie! ($7 at Bath and Body Works)
H2O Plus Night Oasis™ Overnight Eye Complex works specifially on puffy undereyes, dark circles, and fine lines. It's a nice, non-greasy formula containing sea-sourced peptides, phospholipids, and moisturizing marine botanicals. Del-EYE-tful! ($30 at H2OPlus.com)
