Ever wonder why we call our nightly rest “beauty sleep”? This is because it is the time your skin gets repaired and rejuvenated. This is also why getting eight hours of sleep every night is so important.
To achieve the complexion of your dreams, go a step further and make sure you complement your beauty sleep with a great night skincare product. We have six best ones for five different skin concerns.
1. If your skin is dehydrated…
You can certainly go for the Biotherm Aquasource Deep Hydration Moisturiser (SGD69). This bestseller has gone through a revamp and launches in April 2015 with additional life plankton, its star ingredient, to keep skin at its hydration peak for seven hours.
But if you could wait for one more month, in May 2015, the brand will be introducing its first sleeping pack. The upcoming Aquasource Night Spa (SGD65) is designed specifically to help deeply hydrate your skin overnight. This leave-on mask has a non-greasy texture and helps you wake up to plumper, more radiant-looking skin. Simply apply a thick layer of it, leave it on overnight, and then finish off with a facial massage for the best effect.
2. If your complexion is dull…
Night time is also the golden hours for skin brightening. This is because melanin production that’s triggered by UV rays in the day continues to affect your skin at night, and it is crucial to fight against its effects as your skin repairs when you sleep.
Try the new Moisture White Shiso Overnight Triple Boost Serum (SGD56.90) by The Body Shop, which helps to boost your skin’s ability to regenerate and repair daytime damage. Fortified with shiso complex, which is known as a potent Japanese herb used for brightening, it promises to reduce the visibility of hyper-pigmentation and uneven skin tone.
3. If you’re fighting signs of ageing…
Signs of fatigue and ageing can be visibly eliminated with the help of Lancome Absolue Precious Cells Night Cream. Containing Pro-Xylane, a patented anti-ageing ingredient, this luxurious cream targets at softening the look of wrinkles while you sleep. The product also promises visible effects within a month, including eliminating the appearance of wrinkles and improving the density of the skin.
4. If you have acne-prone skin…
A great cleansing ritual is the first step to making sure pimples are kept at bay. The upcoming Glamglow’s Supercleanse (SGD59) is a mud-to-foam cleanser that’s designed specifically for problematic skin.
You might be familiar with Glamglow’s famous mud mask that’s well-loved by celebrities and has a strong cult following. The cleanser transforms the mud from the mask to a foaming cleanser that helps to remove debris that may clog your pores, including oil and makeup. This product also mattifies, clarifies, calms irritated skin and refines skin texture.
Glamglow Supercleanse will be available from 30 April 2015 at Escentials and Sephora.
5. If you’re concerned with your eye contours…
Promising to rid your eye contours of all signs of ageing: fine lines, wrinkles, puffiness, dark circles, dryness and uneven skin tone, the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Serum (SGD96) taps on the exclusive Chronolux Technology to fight against the effects that fatigue, pollution and age may have on the eye contours.
You’ll love how hydrating and lightweight it is, and your eye contours will feel soothed and refreshed after application.
