Daytime skincare products are very important to maintaining your youthful looking skin, but nighttime products are even more crucial to repairing as well as restoring your skin’s health. Your goal should always be to use products that make your skin feel revived overnight. There is nothing I love more than waking up to my face feeling refreshed and rejuvenated. Sharing 5 of my favourite products to rejuvenate your skin overnight.
Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Wipes
The most basic step you can take to rejuvenate your skin overnight is to cleanse your skin first. To prepare my skin for overnight rejuvenation, I like to use Thursday Plantation Face Wipes to take off my makeup and gently remove bacteria and impurities accumulated during the day. What I love the most about the wipes is they do not irritate your skin because of its two miracle ingredients; Tea Tree Oil and Copaiba Oil. These two ingredients cleanse and soothe acne-prone skin while reducing redness, making it the perfect combo. Thursday Plantation Tea Tree Face Wipes, are a staple in my nighttime routine, because they make my skin the perfect canvas for applying my nighttime skincare for overnight rejuvenation. Also worth mentioning is that the wipes are not too oily, but leave your skin with the right amount of moisture (I also have a review of their Tea Tree Medicated Gel for Acne and the Tea Tree Toner).
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex
I’ve been using the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Eye Supercharged Complex as my regular night time eye cream for months now following my mom’s footsteps and I love it. This product is meant to help with puffiness, crows feet, fine lines and wrinkles, as well as dark circles. With its ChronoluxCB™ Technology, Advanced Night Repair Eye gel helps to inhibit the appearance of any visible environmental damage to your eye’s skin area as well as promote your skin’s natural repair process. When it comes to immediate benefits my eye area feels hydrated and radiant when I use it. The bags under my eyes have been minimized, and when I don’t get enough hours of sleep at night, I like to use it in my daytime routine just before I apply my concealer to make my undereye area look brighter. It does the trick. The gel is lightweight and it absorbs quickly leaving the skin feeling soft and silky. When applying the eye cream gently pat it into the skin and do not rub.
Quick Tip: Apply AM and PM to have the perfect skin around eye area.
Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II
A cult favourite. I have never met a person that had something bad to say about Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Synchronized Recovery Complex II. This serum is my holy grail (another Estee Lauder holy grail is the Double Wear Foundation), and it should be yours too. I started noticing a difference on my skin right away with a visible change to my skin’s texture, as well as brightness. I also noticed the wrinkles on my forehead diminished and the pores on my cheeks were also noticeably smaller. Overall, good changes all around my skin after started using the Advanced Night Eye Repair. What you will be pleased to hear is this product contains less than one percent of synthetic fragrances and it is both dermatologist and ophthalmologist-tested and non-acnegenic. Like WOW. The serum works to effectively diminish lines and wrinkles, even your skin’s texture and repair any damage to reveal a younger looking skin. So this is an amazing product to rejuvenate your skin overnight. The price of the Estee Lauder Advanced Night Repair Serum is pretty high, but it is totally worth it.
Herbivore Moon Fruit Superfruit Night Treatment
This nighttime product will rejuvenate your skin overnight like unicorn magic. Packed with antioxidant-rich superfruits and fruit enzymes; the fruit enzymes gently brighten your skin’s appearance while the Kokum and Shea Butters hydrate your skin while you sleep. Although the product is referred to as a treatment, it is actually a night creme you can use every night. I love using the creme because my skin feels refreshed and silky smooth when I wake up. I personally LOVE the lavender scent the product has, but if you prefer scent-free products you may find it a bit overbearing. Products made with natural ingredients have a shorter shelf life around 12 months (sometimes less), so I like to keep the product in the fridge to keep it fresh, especially during the warmer months of summer. Because this product is natural the color and scent will change over time. Mine went from a fresh lavender scent to an earthy clay scent, and I noticed over time the colour changed from a vibrant purple to a pastel pink around the edges. This does not mean the product has gone bad. You can still keep using it. Some MoonFruit reviews mentioned the product is too strong for sensitive skin. I have very sensitive skin and break out really easy, but the product did not affect my skin.
Tip: A little goes a long way. You only need a small amount.
Korres Black Pine 3D Sculpting & Firming Sleeping Oil
Korres Black Pine 3D Sculpting Firming Sleeping Oil is a nighttime favourite for me. Being of Greek background, I always find a way to incorporate Korres products in my skincare routine. This facial oil is a potent black pine extract that supports instant firmness and helps work against free radicals. This face oil has a silky formula that deeply nourishes and replenishes lost moisture (perfect for super dry, aging skin) to ensure it will rejuvenate your skin overnight to a youthful and plumper complexion. What I appreciate the most about this product is how lightweight and absorbing it is. Most facial oils tend to feel very oily and heavy, but the Korres Black Pine 3D Sculpting & Firming Sleeping Oil has the perfect formula.
Those are the 5 nighttime products I suggest to use to rejuvenate your skin overnight. Just keep in mind that regardless of what product you use, if you don’t use it consistently and daily, you are not going to see the results you are expecting, or the results the product promises. If you want to see if a product truly works give it a try for at least 3 weeks. I cannot stress how important this is. Products do not work overnight, yes some do, but most don’t! Be patient and your glowing skin will surface.
