REPROGRAMME YOUR CELLS
Helena Rubinstein’s Prodigy Cellglow trio – which consists of the Intense Clarity Essence, Deep Renewing Concentrate and Radiant Regenerating Cream – quite literally reprogrammes your skin cells so they act like they did when you were young. The products use ingredients extracted from the edelweiss flower, which survives and thrives in the harsh Alpen snows. This magical resistance is harnessed and transferred to your skin so youl wake up refreshed, renewed and rejuvenated.
REST WITH RETINOL
Retinol, a type of vitamin A, is one of the most powerful ingredients you can use on your skin in the evening, with multi-action against pigmentation, wrinkles and sun damage – and that’s just one of the key ingredients in Omorovicza’s Gold Night Drops, a night-time serum that’s also packed with colloidal gold to heal and fight inflammation, vitamin C to brighten and restore elasticity, omega-6 ceramides to hydrate and protect, and sodium hyaluronate, a version of hyaluronic acid that helps carry and direct the nutrients to where they’re most needed.
DETOX WHILE YOU DREAM
Sisley’s Botanical D-Tox Detoxifying Night Treatment may be a one-month night-time treatment, but you’ll see results just a few mornings after. Using concentrated plant extracts, this formula helps your skin fully detox all the bad stuff it’s exposed to, while boosting its barrier against further damage. Signs of fatigue will melt away, replaced by radiance.
FIND THE SCENT FOR SLEEPINESS
There’s no point in having great skin if your body isn’t similarly well-rested. Uma’s Pure Rest Wellness Oil helps to promote peace of mind so your brain can leave its stresses behind. Just take a few drops and massage them in key points: pulse points, temples, behind the ears or even the bottoms of your feet and between your toes (hey, those guys are tired from holding you up all day). Inhale it deeply from your hands, or use it in a diffuser or in your bath before bed.
You might not want to drink a lot of water before bedtime, but WelleCo’s The Super Elixir Sleep Welle Calming Tea is a natural herb blend that will get you to sleep well before you’ve counted your tenth sheep, thanks to skullcap, hops and valerian root that calm and ease stress. Keep VitaJuwel’s Via Luna by your bedside table for if you wake up in the middle of the night thirsty – and finish the bottle when you wake in the morning. If you’re well-rested, then you’re also dehydrated, having hopefully spent eight hours deep in slumber, so you’ll need to replenish and get those cells awake and moving.
