Wake Up With Refreshed Skin With These Overnight Skincare ProductsMarch 16, 2023
Not only does sleeping feel amazing (we dare you to name something that feels better than getting into bed at the end of a long day), but it also boasts a host of beauty benefits. Getting enough sleep on the regular can help to restore and renew the appearance of your skin, while poor sleep may magnify signs of aging. Suffice it to say, we’re big fans of sleep at Skincare.com. That’s why we’re celebrating World Sleep Day, which falls on March 17 this year, by rounding up the best overnight skincare products that help improve your skin while you sleep — literally. From serums to creams to exfoliants, add one of these products to your skincare routine and be prepared to wake up with more hydrated, brightened and refreshed skin.
The Best Overnight Skincare Products
Wake up with radiant, hydrated skin after applying the IT Cosmetics Confidence in Your Beauty Sleep Triple Antioxidant Brightening Serum. With a first-to-market, antioxidant-packed formula featuring vitamin C, ferulic acid and polydatin, this serum delivers both brightening and anti-aging benefits. In addition to brightening dull skin overnight, it reduces fine lines and wrinkles with continued use over time.
You’ll fall in love with the comforting feel of this anti-aging night cream from L’Oréal Paris. It feels deeply nourishing, yet it’s still lightweight and non-greasy. Formulated with antioxidants and vitamin E, it helps to repair your skin barrier while you sleep since your skin is most receptive to recovery during the night.
The SkinCeuticals Glycolic 10 Renew Overnight is our pick for an overnight chemical exfoliator. The 10% concentration of glycolic acid gently yet effectively exfoliates and helps promote skin cell turnover, helping to improve your skin’s texture and tone. Reach for this product if you want more youthful-looking skin.
Formulated with lavender essential oil and evening primrose oil, this moisturizing face oil from Kiehl’s works to target signs of aging like fine lines, wrinkles and elasticity. It also helps visibly reduce the appearance of dark spots. Use the Midnight Recovery Face Oil to revive tired-looking skin.
CeraVe is beloved for its range of affordable, no-fuss moisturizers that deliver unparalleled results, and the Skin Renewing Night Cream is no exception. Hyaluronic acid, niacinamide and ceramides in the formula help lock in moisture and repair the skin’s barrier, while peptides help to wake up fatigued skin.
The Superberry Hydrate and Glow Dream Mask is a leave-on mask that you apply before bed each night to hydrate, plump and brighten your skin. For the best results, coat your face in a thin layer of the mask after cleansing and then head to sleep. In the morning, you can follow your regular cleansing routine.
If you’re not already using a serum at night, this is your sign to start. We like the Dr. Barbara Sturm Night Serum because it claims to help reduce wrinkles and support your skin’s repair process from UV damage. Apply this serum to cleansed skin, then once it has fully absorbed, follow it up with your favorite moisturizer.
Even out your skin tone and texture with the Osea Seaglow Overnight Serum AHA Treatment. According to the brand, this resurfacing treatment effectively smooths the look of pores and leaves your skin feeling unbelievably soft. Plus, the pretty light pink bottle will make an aesthetically-pleasing addition to any bathroom countertop.
Looking to incorporate retinol into your skincare routine? Check out the Summer Fridays Midnight Ritual Retinol Renewal Serum. The gentle yet effective formula is anchored by two forms of retinoids — retinol and retinyl linoleate. As the brand explains, it works to minimize fine lines and wrinkles and reduce discoloration.
Let’s be real — the adorable lavender color of the product and packaging alone is enough to sell us on this sleep mask from Herbivore. But it helps that this skin-smoothing mask locks in moisture to prevent water loss overnight and helps target fine lines and wrinkles, per the brand. From the creamy texture to the subtle fruity scent, this product will have you hooked.
