Falling asleep and waking up gorgeous: that's the dream, right!? While we haven't found any spells that will magically let us wake up as supermodels, we have found a few products that certainly help. From essentials that will help de-stress your senses to skincare products that work wonders while you sleep, here are 8 products that will give "beauty sleep" a whole new meaning.
An essential oil diffuser is a great way to set the mood and prepare for nighttime. Not only does this one from Vitruvi work well, but it also looks minimalist and chic, so it won’t clash with your décor.
You can mix and match different essential oils all day long, but for the evening, the Vitruvi Dusk Blend—a mix of eucalyptus, frankincense, and lavender—sets a calming mood.
Nighttime is the perfect time to rehydrate and relax skin. Do both with one product: Lush’s Sleepy Body Lotion. Formulated with lavender, tonka perfume, cocoa butter, and almond oil, this lotion will help you feel instantly at ease and ready to rest. It’s rich and luxurious on skin, too, assuring ultimate hydration.
This game-changing product from luxury skincare brand La Prairie seems too good to be true: apply a single drop to your face before going to sleep and wake up with rejuvenated skin. At $1200, this miracle product does not come cheap, but it is worth every penny.
The formula of luxe ingredients encourages skin cell renewal, collagen production, skin tone evening, reduction of age spots, and the minimization of wrinkles and fine lines. By morning, you’ll awaken with completely refreshed skin.
Did you know that the way you sleep might contribute to signs of aging? Regular pillowcases can create creases and lead to wrinkles, but a silk pillowcase is soft on your skin. Silk is also better on your hair, since it decreases friction and breakage. Bedhead, be gone!
Oil-based skincare is all the rage right now, and this one from Sunday Riley works wonders in the night. Blue Tansy and German Chamomile calm the skin and help balance out redness, while Trans-retinoic Acid Ester revitalizes and smooths to reduce fine lines.
Especially if you feel like you aren't getting as much sleep as you need, this oil will help give your skin the rest it deserves.
Wake up with glowing skin after wearing this hydrating face mask from Musely. With ingredients like green tea and pomegranate seed extract, this mask evens out skin tone and fights off acne and signs of aging, all with a cooling feel. You can wear this mask for 20 minutes before bed, or overnight for maximum impact.
This beauty product works from the inside out. Mix this blend of tranquil herbs into a glass of warm milk or herbal tea before bedtime, and let the dust do the work of reducing stress and release tension.
Repair damaged and dried-out hair with this overnight mask. Use once or twice a week on dry hair and leave on overnight. In the morning, wash out the mask with your normal shampoo and conditioner, and prepare for silky smooth tresses.
