While You Were Sleeping: 3 Overnight Beauty Tricks to Try

If you’re anything like me, getting those recommended eight hours of sleep isn’t always an option. But luckily, with these three beauty tricks, making the most of your (limited) shut-eye is easy. Simply take note and prepare to sleep your way to beautiful.

Overnight Beauty Tricks from Rue La La

Prep Before Bed
No matter how tired you are, skip the urge to hit the sheets without washing your face. Instead, wash up, and then revive dry skin with an overnight moisture mask. For a lightweight and oil-free product, check out H20 Plus’s Night Oasis Overnight Moisture Lock. During really dry winter months, turn on a humidifier before heading to bed – it will infuse the air with moisture and keep your skin hydrated.

Draw the Line
At night, your skin is already in repair mode. So take advantage and fight back against years of wrinkles with a serum that’s packed with antioxidants, like Avon ANEW CLINICAL Skinvincible Deep Recovery Cream. Oh, and you know that silk pillowcase you’ve been eyeing? Treat yourself – it prevents wrinkles.

Strengthen Your Strands
First rule of overnight hair care? Let those strands loose. Tying hair tightly back can result in some serious breakage. To restore your locks while you sleep, try out L’Oréal EverStrong Sulfate-Free Fortify System Overnight Repair Treatment.
