The secret behind “Beauty Sleep”
Ok ok.. so as we grow up we hear of “sleeping beauty” and the story of how she had slept for as long as she did and yet somehow— never ages? (*raised eyebrow*)
Nowadays, whilst we have wised up on the reality that sleeping longer than a single day would be due to some sort of medical inducement (I’m no expert, but in my non-expert opinion of course). We have a very common knowledge that skin is less likely to wrinkle if there is more collagen present. Collagen of which ensures your skin looks plumper. However as we look at our favourite beauty brands and the directions for optimal application, we can’t help but wonder... is there something more to ‘beauty sleep’?
Its all about beauty essentials that help you de-stress your senses to skincare products that work literally while you sleep. Therefore, giving ‘beauty sleep’ a whole new meaning.
Here are some of our favourite beauty products that get their retinol and anti-aging skin-care formulas that work overnight to repair skin and have us waking up slightly more youthful than the day before! Reality is - who actually gets 8 hours of sleep anymore? Lets face it, we need all the help we can get.
So while on a very natural basis while we snooze, our cells undergo natural reparative processes - which we are just amplifying the process with these add-ones.
1. Vichy Idealia Skin Sleep
This innovative new treatment is formulated with a combination of active ingredients like hyaluronic acid, caffeine and niacinamide - all of which contribute to boosting the reparative processes that occur when we are in a natural deep sleep.
2. L’Oreal Paris Revitalift Triple Power Intensive Overnight Mask
Yip that’s a mouth full, but its worth every word. This miracle mask does its magic while you sleep. Dont worry, it doesn’t get all hard and flaky - it has a special polymer which allows it to stay flexible and comfortable on your face while you sleep. Wake up to reveal smoother and more youthful skin we say!
3. Sisley Paris Black Rose
This skin infusion cream has a lightweight gel-like texture infused with rose water that just soaks into your skin. Its a perfect combination of not too heavy or rich and it has the most incredible scent that will quickly whisk you off to Lalaland. This is perfect for a bit of a well-deserved spoil at the end of a long day. What’s more? It boosts your radiance and plumps up your skin.
With love from these three miracles and us
