For a long time, I relied on sleep aids to kick me into my REM cycle but now I’ve found a healthier and more natural way. As a beauty junkie, I rely on not only my nighttime skincare routine (more info on THAT saga another day), but a few key products to help me wake up refreshed and beautiful… minus the drool.
James Read Overnight Tan Sleep Mask – Since I have sensitive skin, I am often apprehensive about sleep masks but thankfully I was right to give the James Read Sleep Mask Tan a chance. The luxurious yet lightweight formula is infused with skincare essentials including aloe vera, cucumber, hyaluronic acid and red algae to moisturize and soothe the skin overnight while gradually tanning. Don’t expect to wake up looking like you’ve jetted to the Bahamas; it’s a gradual light glow thats buildable if used repeatedly.
SkinOwl Beauty Steam – Beauty Steam is an intoxicating blend of organic, radiance-boosting flora to detox and renew your skin before bed. The Steam opens the skin’s pores for deep cleansing, decongestion, and hydration and is formulated to bring vitality to your skin, ridding your pores of dirt and dead skin, while imparting healing, softening, and cell renewing goodness.
How to Use: After cleansing your face, place 2 spoonfuls of herbs into a bowl of boiling water and allow them to steep and cool for a few minutes. Drape a towel over your head and the bowl allowing the rising steam to carry the regenerative herbal properties to your skin. Steam for a maximum of 5 minutes and follow with your favorite SkinOwl Beauty Drops. Practice this ritual once a week to maintain soft, gloriously glowing skin. If you have cystic acne like me, limit steaming time to one-three minutes.
Erno Laszlo Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask – The Hydra-Therapy Memory Sleep Mask has a revolutionary memory gel texture, it smooths on lightly and melts into skin so you don’t sleep a sticky mess. The gel is formulated with kelp extract to boost elastin and collagen and prickly pear extract to moisturize and soften. The “Dual-Action Recovery Complex” is an active blend of raspberry and tomato stem cells which strengthen the skin’s defenses and brightens for a healthy glow. For optimal benefits, the mask should be used twice a week.
iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Eye Mask – Not all eye masks are created equal (especially the ones you get on airplanes!). The iluminage eye mask is a rejuvenating sleep mask that covers your delicate eye area with advanced care to minimize wrinkles while you sleep. Beyond blocking all visual stimuli to quiet your mind and senses, the silky, soft, smart textile is carefully embedded with copper to help reduce the appearance of wrinkles for smoother, younger-looking skin in four weeks. WARNING: Do not throw in the wash. Please be gentle and hand wash.
iluminage Skin Rejuvenating Pillowcase – Just like the eye mask, the pillowcase is copper-infused to help maintain skin’s youthful appearance and minimize visible signs of aging as you sleep. The secret? When the skin is in contact with the copper oxide fibers in the pillowcase, copper ions are transferred into the moisture of the upper epidermal layers to support skin’s natural self-renewal mechanism and help reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Plus! It’s silky smooth so who wouldn’t want to lay their head to rest on this little luxury?
