The Power of Overnight Beauty Products

Are you doing all that you can to love your skin—when it matters the most? Although it may seem that your entire body checks out when you finally fall into bed at the end of the day, the truth is that your skin is only just getting started. During the overnight hours, your skin goes into what’s commonly known as “recovery” mode, when it starts to repair and renew after a day spent exposed to the elements, dirt, debris, and makeup.

Part of that is due to the body’s increase in melatonin, which makes you feel tired and helps your skin improve its condition. It even helps minimize the damaging effects of exposure to harmful ultraviolet rays! Your human growth hormone (HGH) also goes into overdrive at night. You can thank HGH for improving your cellular turnover rate and improving your skin’s ability to heal. And finally, nighttime is the right time to give your skin the targeted treatment it needs—because those hours are when your skin is most responsive to what you use.

Want to rev up your overnight routine and reap the benefits of the midnight hour? Here’s what we love:

Dr. Brandt Do Not Age Beauty Sleep Serum ($59.99): Serums are genius products to use at any time of the day, but your skin will love using this lightweight formula when the sun sets. It contains Tahitian black pearl extract, which is designed to detoxify the skin—also known as sucking away all of those impurities that threaten to clog pores, cause breakouts, and leave your complexion looking tired. Used daily, it will also soften your skin and improve its tone.

Peter Thomas Roth Camu Camu Sleeping Mask ($31.79): You’ve heard all about the benefits of ingesting superfruits, but did you know they’re pretty super for your skin, too? This indulgent mask contains camu camu berry, which is hyper-charged with vitamin C to minimize the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and other signs of aging. At the same time, this mask also softens skin to leave you feeling smoother and looking brighter come morning.

GLAMGLOW Dream Duo Overnight Transforming ($46.39): For those who enjoy the beauty of convenience, this product has you covered. It includes a “dream serum,” which sinks right into your skin and contains an elevated infusion of vitamins formulated to smooth and brighten a sallow complexion. “Dream seal,” meanwhile, locks in the potency of the serum with a potent combination of hyaluronic acid and mozuku green algae, which work in tandem to plump up aging skin and leave it fresher and more moisturized.

 

The Best Beauty Products Celebrities Love Under $30

While A-list celebrities tend to gravitate toward high-end makeup brands, there are actually a lot of stars out there who are hooked on inexpensive products. But don’t let the price fool you—they’re as high quality as it gets. From foundation to lipstick, we’ve found some of the most affordable makeup products in the market right now that come with a stamp of approval right from your favorite Hollywood actresses.

 Primer:

Celebrity makeup always begins with a flawless base; namely, Dr. Brandt Pores No More Luminizer Primer ($30.99). Vanessa Hudgens wore this primer to the MTV Video Music Awards back in August, showcasing seemingly perfect skin. No surprise though, as this two-in-one product gives you a glowing complexion while blurring out all of your pores like a selfie filter.

Foundation:

It’s hard to believe that Jennifer Aniston is almost 50 years old with skin that amazing, but one of her secret weapons is Youngblood Liquid Foundation ($26.99). “I like how lightweight it is and it blends well,” she told The Cut, adding that she could also build up more coverage if needed. Infused with ocean minerals, green tea extract, and more, this fragrance-free product does as much good to your skin from within as it does on the outside.

Concealer:

For touching up any spots, Gal Gadot’s makeup artist revealed to HELLO! that she loves using bareMinerals bareSkin Complete Coverage Serum Concealer ($16.99) on her. In fact, she said it’s “one of her favorite products of all time.” If it’s good enough for Wonder Woman, it’s good enough for us mortals! The silky smooth formula is guaranteed to cover up both your under eye circles and discolorations while not being heavy on the skin.

Powder:

You may know Jennifer Lopez for that signature “J. Lo Glow,” but even she turns to powder to set her makeup. Used by her and Kirsten Dunst, Glo Minerals Pressed Base ($26.99) gives the skin an all-over even finish. You can use it either as a skin-colored setting powder or as a replacement for foundation if you’re not a fan of liquid formulas.

Eyeliner:

Emma Watson is all about eco-friendly and ethical beauty products, which is why she turns to Jane Iredale Liquid Eye Liner ($15.99) in Brown. She told The Gloss that it took her six months to find a good, natural eyeliner, but that this one’s it—and we agree. The latex-free eyeliner is gentle and nourishing on the skin thanks to essential oils like rosemary leaf and radish root extracts.

Lipstick:

To finish off any makeup look, a nude lip color is essential. Youngblood Lipstick ($12.99) is a great option as it’s a super pigmented lipstick formulated with natural oils and minerals. In fact, celebrity makeup artist Monika Blunder told Glamour she applied the lipstick in Brown Sugar on Jessica Alba for a gala to accentuate the natural fullness of her lips. It also comes in 24 other colors so you can pick the perfect shade for your skin.
