Overnight beauty products that work while you sleep 1

They don’t call it “beauty sleep” for nothing. Sleep plays an important role in the appearance and health of the skin. Did you know that while you’re asleep, the blood flow to your skin increases, allowing it to rebuild its collagen and repair damage from UV exposure? That’s why it’s essential for healthy skin to get 7 – 8 hours of good sleep per night.

Insufficient sleep is associated with a weaker barrier function, puffiness, more wrinkles and a lacklustre appearance.

Because skin regenerates while you sleep, you need to carefully consider the products you apply at night time. It’s a great time to apply active ingredients that are going to work hard to restore and nourish your skin while you sleep.

Some of the benefits you can enjoy from overnight skincare products include:

Exfoliation

Yes, you can exfoliate your skin while you sleep! Overnight exfoliation products help slough away dead skin cells, boost skin cell turnover, improve the skin’s texture and radiance. Plus, they help the products you apply in the morning to better penetrate your skin, so that you can get better results.

Try: Filorga Sleep & Peel 4.5 Micro-Peeling Cream (R880.00). This micro-peeling night cream was inspired by professional peels. Designed to boost cellular renewal and provide radiance whilst protecting against premature ageing, this powerful overnight cream contains Filorga’s famous complex NCTF Chronosphere, hyaluronic acid and various amino acids that assist in exfoliating and reducing hyperpigmentation. It improves skin texture and illuminates the complexion, resulting in a “new skin” effect from the first morning. Use as a one-month treatment.

Hydration

Our skin loses a lot of moisture during the day, so it’s essential to replace it at night. Select a high-performance, moisture-boosting product that not only replenishes the lost moisture, but also lock it in.

Try:

Eco Diva Hydrating Masque (R460.00). Natural skincare lovers, this one’s for you. This nourishing overnight masque is enriched with superfood nutrients such as baobab, marula, squalane and kaolin, which work together to restore your skin’s natural balance. It feeds your skin with superfood ingredients while you sleep to deeply hydrate, soothe, balance and help your skin recover from damage experienced during the day.

W Beauty Rose Glow Hydrating Overnight Mask (R159.00). This hydrating glow mask is formulated with ingredients known to gently exfoliate, clarify and hydrate the skin while you sleep. It contains Boerhavia Diffusa root extract known for its ability to even skin tone, shea butter, rose oil and hyaluronic acid to lock in moisture while you sleep.

SKNLogic Multi Regenerating Masque (R350.00). Suited for dry, dehydrated and mature skin, this nourishing overnight masque helps increase collagen production, regulate trans-epidermal moisture loss and stimulate cell renewal. It contains hyaluronic acid, jojoba seed oil, shea butter, vitamins C and E as well as dermal stem cells to stimulate collagen synthesis.

Anti-ageing

An effective anti-ageing routine requires effective products twice a day. At night time, it’s important to incorporate products containing anti-ageing ingredients like vitamin A (retinol), peptides and hyaluronic acid in your regime.

Try:
