The clocks go back this weekend, so squeeze every last drop out of that extra 60 minutes with these picks that promise to boost your beauty sleep, by working while you rest.
A burst of hydration for dry, dull hair, this mask is designed to work overnight for deeper moisture absorption. Containing anti-oxidant-packed camellia oil and evening primrose oil for its super-nourishing properties, it works to repair hair, making it appear smooth and shiny when you wake. (Just don’t forget to wash it out in the morning!)
Bumble and Bumble While You Sleep Damage Repair Mask, $59, at sephora.com.
It’s common for lips to dry out overnight, so this treatment offers a burst of hydration thanks to apple extract and shea butter, delivered via a cool, metal applicator. Plumping Indian gentian extract also helps to target the appearance of fine lines and sesame-seed extract smooths skin in this impressive cocktail.
Dermalogica Nightly Lip Treatment, $68, at dermalogica.ca and selected salons.
Created for the face, neck and décolleté to get the most from your hours of recline, this mask is enhanced with plumping silk proteins and was 12 years in research. The formula works to combat signs of aging by promoting the production of fibroblasts, which help improve the texture and structure of the skin, in a luxurious balm-gel formula.
Le Lift Skin-Recovery Sleep Mask, $145, at Chanel counters.
Touted as “Instant Beauty Sleep in a cream elixir” this super-rich balm-like texture has staying power, so its active ingredients can penetrate your skin while you sleep. Moisturizing vitamin E, castor seed oil and olus oil smooth the surface while anti-aging heavy hitters like retinol, winter daphne stem-cell extract and peptides help plump the skin and protect it from further environmental damage.
Charlotte Tilbury Magic Night Cream, $165, at Holt Renfrew, Nordstrom and CharlotteTilbury.com.
Better Bed Socks
