Having a bad sleep can be so frustrating and effect your daily life.
Fortunately, along with some lifestyle changes (cutting alcohol, eating more veg, etc) there are plenty of products aimed at helping you get a restful nights sleep, as well as products that work best on your skin during sleep so you wake up looking better than ever.
Mario Badescu Lavender Mask & Mist Duo
One of the most popular ingredients in sleep-aid products is lavender. The aroma from this ingredient helps to relax your mind and body – inevitably will help you fall into a deeper sleep.
The Mario Badescu Lavender Mask & Mist Duo is a great starter kit for the world of lavender. The mask purifies and lifts impurities from the skin and the spray mist soothes and calms the skin – all while overwhelming the senses with a beautiful lavender scent.
Skin & Tonic Calm Balm
If you don’t want to apply a mist to the face then Skin & Tonic’s Calm Balm is a wonderful alternative. The shea butter base provides a creamy canvas for the lavender, calendula, and chamomile essential oils. Calm Balm can be massaged into pressure points on your wrists and temples to be inhaled throughout the night or you can apply to your palms, cup over your nose and take long deep breaths for instant relaxation. A brilliant breathing technique is the breath of longevity (yoga fans will be aware of this one). To practice the breath of longevity you will need to take a deep breath in and exhale through your mouth to the count of four. The action will help alleviate stress, provide a calmer mind before bedtime, and has been proven to encourage a better night’s sleep.
Alpha-H Beauty Sleep Power Peel
Now we’ve talked about things to help you get some precious shut-eye, how about we focus on products that work best overnight to get your skin sparkling whether you’ve had a good night’s sleep or not?
First up, an overnight sleep mask from Alpha-H that packs one serious punch. This product is a combo of 14% glycolic acid and 0.5% retinol (a good amount that’s safe to use nightly). Overnight the mask will eat away at dead skin cells to provide a smooth surface for the retinol to boost collagen levels and provide a plump finish. Expect to look super refreshed whether you’ve had the recommended eight hours sleep or a measly five.
Starskin 7-in-1 Miracle Skin Mask Pads
If you’re looking for a product that’s easy to travel with, the Starskin 7-in-1 Miracle Skin Mask Pads will be right up your street. These pads are soaked in White Water Lily and Queen Of The Night extracts which will create a softer and suppler look upon awakening.
Jouer Cosmetics Overnight Conditioning & Repairing Lip Mask
Finally, onto the lips. We love to treat our lips overnight as there’s no chance of product has the time to sit and sink in. The Jouer Cosmetics Overnight Conditioning and Repairing Lip Mask is infused with shea butter, jojoba seed oil, hyaluronic acid and grapeseed oil, a concoction that intensely moisturises, smooths and smooths lips to leave the perfect base for a striking lip the next day.
