overnight beauty treatments
Sleeping Beauty had the right idea — sleep for 100 years and wake up looking flawless? We’re more than on board with that idea. Today, we’re channeling our inner Princess Aurora and sharing four products that will work their magic while you sleep, allowing you to wake up to glowing skin, shiny strands and soft lips (all the better to kiss the dashing prince with, of course).
For plump, moisturized skin: Kiehl’s Ultra Facial Overnight Hydrating Mask
Dry skin, you’ve officially met your match. This overnight mask is filled with hydrating ingredients like squalane, glycerin and fragmented hyaluronic acid to help moisturize dry, tired skin overnight. Simply apply after washing your face, leave on for 10 minutes and gently wipe off with a towel, leaving a thin layer over your face to do its work as you sleep. You’ll wake up to noticeably smoother, softer skin in the AM.
For strong, healthy hair: L'Oréal Paris EverStrong Sulfate-Free Fortify System Overnight Repair Treatment
If your hair is damaged, brittle or weakened, this ultra-nourishing repairing hair mask is here to save the day. The potent formula penetrates your hair shaft while you sleep, helping heal and strengthen your fried locks after just one use. Bonus: it won’t leave any residue on your pillow, so you can sleep easy.
For brighter, more radiant skin: Garnier Skin Renew Dark Spot Overnight Peel
This leave-on glycolic peel will help fade dark spots, even out skin tone and brighten and smooth your skin. With glycolic vitamin C to gently exfoliate and polish, this peel is non-comedogenic and won’t clog your pores while you snooze.
For soft, smooth lips: C.O. Bigelow My Favorite Night Balm
The first step to a kissable pout? Pillow-soft lips, of course. This overnight lip balm is filled with shea butter to help nourish your pucker as you sleep. Your daytime lip balm deserves some rest too, after all.
