Environmental aggressors, UV rays and pollution take a huge toll on the health of your skin. While it’s impossible to shield your skin from these damage-causing factors during the day, you can make up for it by pampering your skin with skin-loving ingredients, essential nutrients and skin-perfecting creams, gels and oils before hitting the sheets.
Whether you sleep at a granny hour or are a night owl who dives under the covers at odd hours, always treat your skin with the best overnight skincare products before dozing off. Don’t know where to begin? Take a look at five overnight products that should be a part of your PM routine for flawless skin.
01. Face mask
There’s nothing better than slapping on a face mask, shutting your eyes and opening them to glowing skin. But not everyone has time to spare for a relaxing ‘me’ session during the day (unless you wake up super early that is). If you are one of those busy bees, get yourself the Lakme Absolute Skin Gloss Overnight Mask that is infused with mineral laden glacial water and wake up to glowing and super hydrated skin every morning.
02. Acne-clearing gel
Do you ever feel like forgetting all your worries as soon as you hit the sack? If acne is one of your worries, you can actually forget it by using a nighttime acne treatment. Dermalogica Overnight Clearing Gel has salicylic acid, tea tree oil and other acne-fighting ingredients that fight acne and other oily skin woes while you sleep. Simply put on a thin layer of it on cleansed face and wash it off in the morning for clearer skin.
An overnight serum, the Lakme Absolute Argan Oil Radiance Overnight Oil-in-Serum has glow-boosting ingredients and nourishing face oils such as argan oil that can transform your skincare game. It is extremely lightweight and gets absorbed in a tick. You can literally sleep your way to nourished and glowing skin by including this face serum in your night time skincare routine.
04. Night cream
If you are in your late 20s and still not using a night cream, you need to start using one right away. Your skin goes into repair mode as you doze off and a night cream like the Ponds White Beauty Night Cream can help keep premature signs of ageing at bay, repair daily damage, restore moisture and give you spotless skin. Apply a small amount evenly on your face, every night before bed.
05. Overnight gel
In case you didn’t know, your skin absorbs ingredients better at night. Pampering it with an overnight hydrating gel can help seal in the moisture and let you wake up to plump and hydrated skin in the morning. You can trust the Lakme Absolute Hydra Pro Overnight Gel for an extra boost of hydration and an instant glow. It is formulated with advanced HA-Penta complex and hyaluronic acid which works at turning your dull and dry skin to radiant and moisturised.
